Since I am out of the Army on Friday, I kinda don't give a fuck.  Today, I didn't even go to work.  I rode motorcycles all day and got sunburned.  You might say, "But they'll know you were goofing off because of your red ass face!"  To that I'll say, "That's ok, because they won't see my red ass face because I'm gonna do the same shit again tomorrow."

Now I'm eating pizza and drinking beer in my empty and watching all of the Deathwish movies.


What do you ride Hate? I want to bring up my old Triumph from Cincinnati but I have no where to put it.

Triumph Bonneville T100!  What about you?  That sucks you can't bring it.  I've been blessed with a garage and I do some work with a smalltime shop in KC where we build cafe racers.  Working on my dad's Thruxton next week!
I inherited my grandfather's 1969 T120 Bonneville, me and my pops restored it when I was still living at home cause he left it to sit in a garage until 2004 maybe?  but I haven't ridden it in so long I don't know what shape its in. I'm trying to find a picture on my laptop but I can't, it must be buried in all my work stuff  Cry

I hope you find it, I love seeing the actual vintage ones.  This one is mine.  I nearly laid it down once and scratched the factory pipes, so I put these ones on for fun.  Still have the OG ones and they're buffed out.  Might swap back so it's all original.

The pipes you put on are sick. I'll dig more tomorrow, it might be on my external drive. Mine is completely original, with the exception of a mirror that my dumb ass broke moving it, I did the paint myself in metallic gold flake, and did sloppy black pinstriping myself too. its not the prettiest but I'm more attached to the significance of it than anything and of course when I learned to ride it I laid it down twice, that was before I restored it though thank god. not that it would've made much of a difference

Your first is the most memorable.  I hope you find it.  Love looking at old shit.  I'm actually doing design work for a shop now and I'm gonna be starting to learn metal fab in a week or so.  I love hanging out in a garage just working on old bikes and bullshitting.  We have the sickest garage too- we even have a shop cat and a shop dog and the shop dog learned how to SMILE (so weird)

my memere died the week before this past thanksgiving. she was the raddest, kindest, most loving person i've known. a true buddha.
although i'm bummed on her death, today would've been her 78th birthday. she loved drinking bud light and playing cards. i'm swilling a bud in her memory  i'm stoked on having loved such a beautiful soul.

My wife's iMac makes me hate my old shitty laptop so much.  It's like having a brand new luxury car, but driving an unreliable beater.

I am stoked on Hate!. Not only has he become the security guard against shit posting he also just donated some skate products to kids that will never be able to afford a skateboard. PM me if you want to be as rad as Hate! and send stuff. OK, so this entire post is a shameless plug but it is for a good cause. I need shit tons of trucks. Trucks people. Mail me your old trucks. They are sitting in your damn closet right now. Don't you feel guilty not helping these kids?

How much did it cost to get there?  Is that all you cover?  How long do you go for?

After 11 years of riding a motorcycle, I am finally legal.  So fucking grateful I never got pulled over.

My apartment is packed and I am getting ready to clean it.

Out of the Army tomorrow and moving home to KC to finish my degree and actually live in the same state as my wife.

Monday morning, 8am is my first free skate session.  It will be in the KC Crossroads art district.  Looking forward to this a lot.

How much did it cost to get there?� Is that all you cover?� How long do you go for?

The organization that hosts you prefers to have people there for at least three months but since skaters are hard to come by (I am the only one who went) they would love to have you there any amount of time. I was there for a month and it went by really fast. I wish I was there for much longer.

As far as how much it will cost, that is sort of the issue. It is pretty remote. You can get a ticket for between $1000-$3000 depending on where you fly through and how early in advance you pay. It is more about where you fly through though.

Once you get there you will have to pay for stuff but food is damn cheap and lodging can be really cheap. I stayed in the house of the person who ran the organization (she is American) and paid $300 for the month and that was a western style condo. You can stay in a decent hotel for about the same price. You could also choose to live with a Timorese family and it could be free or up to $100 tops. I probably should have done this the whole time though I did stay with people for maybe a week and a half total out of the month I was there. On the weekends I would usually go to some rural area with one of the Timorese people from the organization. The situations can vary but I will say it is very far from the Western amenities we are used to. Staying in the rural areas or at friends houses are some of my best memories.

I will say that I promise you will have the time of your life. There is a pretty good chance you will get to meet the president and Nobel Laureate Jose Ramos Horta (that is the dude in my avatar). The women that runs the organization tries to make that happen for anyone that volunteers. He is one of the few world leaders I have any respect for (and I had this respect before I met him - it was a country I studied a lot). If you do meet him you will probably also meet some other really interesting people (I got to hang out with the son of the environmental minister of the Philippines, a German director, an Oxford PhD, the crew of the largest Australian fishing magazine and 2 Australian playboy models. It was pretty rad [Beyond the models, the director and PhD were hot too. Mandible, you should go and slay dragons. I will just throw it out there that if you are single - as I was not when I was there - there are definitely opportunities. I met tons of international girls at bars, parties, etc. Every time I told girls I was there teaching skateboarding, they would swoon!]). The country is a picturesque tropical paradise, you can visit a even smaller and really rad island on the weekend, there is actually stuff to do there at night, there are some street spots (some decent ones, no joke), you will get to meet people from all over the world, the locals will be super gracious and invite you to their houses or home villages (as I mentioned) and all in all I can promise it is an experience of a lifetime. Teaching the kids to skate everyday and just seeing how stoked they were was life-changing for me. It is well worth your time and money, seriously.
