A Boy and his Board

A Boy and his Board




There once was a  boy and his board

A long board

Now it is just a bit of plywood

but with a little sanding

Some wood filler

Some sanding sealer

A bit of paint

A sheet of grip tape or two

A pair of  Reverse Kingpin Longboard Trucks

And we have a dream come true

 

 

When I was in my late teens I got around on either a longboard or a bike. 

I would disappear for days and ride my longboard or my bike 150 miles or more to go hiking in Ozarks. 

In later years I would ride my longboard/hitchhike  from Austin to the gulf coast. Where I would stand on one of several docks where I was known, wearing a tee shirt that said “will crew for a ride. This is how I got to sea on some 60 to 80 foot sailboats 

When I was in Oregon I commuted 20 miles to work on a bicycle. And I could take my bike on the bus up the mountain, got off at Near McKenzie Bridge in Oregon. And from there I could ride my bike to Cougar Hot Springs.

After soaking in the springs I would ride my bike to the trailhead of French Pete Trail #3311. 

From there I would chain my bike to a tree and explored the Three Sisters Wilderness, Pacific Crest National Scenic Trail and the Willamette National Forest.

These day I find myself commuting 8 miles one way to work. In hope of making my life easier I started exploring building myself a longboard.

In the meantime a friend has given me a bike. It is only a single speed coulter cd bicycle but I have fallen in love with the old banger of a bike for the freedom it gives me. 

I am still going to build myself a longboard but now I am going to take my time and build something nice instead of banging together something purely utilitarian.

Raymond The Weather Dog
Raymond The Weather Dog

My wonderful Raymond is the smartest dog I have every know. cardigan corgis are one of the smartest breed I have ever worked with and I am convinced that Raymond is smarter then your average corgi. 

Raymond gets me out of bed to see weather events like snow storms and thunderstorms. I reinforce this behavior by going and sitting on the back porch with him and watching the storms.

I do not know how he does this but I love him all the more for it.

Here he is in his  amazing technicolor dreamcoat running out to watch a cold front come in and waiting for the winds to strip the leaves off the trees.

I really would go flying if I could

If it could be with 16 cylinders of supercharged, canvas and dope covered, amphibious, island hopping fury I would. Hopeless Romantic by bear48
