Hat sale

A little thin, a lot soft.


This hat was up for auction at the SUWA fundraiser this past weekend. I tried to make it look really professional with that fun little "B" label and "Brights" tag. It was on the table with all the rest of the gear donations, which were donated by, Gregory, Black Diamond, IME, and quite a few other companies. I didn't want it to stick out as the "homemade item of the night." The tags seemed to fool everyone. It sold for a good price to a girl whom i had never met. I was pretty excited.

Help Save Utah

Hey anyone that cares about Utah...
There is an awesome fundraiser this Friday at Momentum climbing gym. We are trying to help SUWA raise money to stop  big oil companies from bidding on our precious desert land. The land inside official National Parks, such as Arches and Canyonlands, is safe. However, the land directly outside of the parks is not protected. Which means, soon enough you might have an oil rig in the background of your climbing pictures. gross, uh?

We are talking about land we all climb, hike, raft, and camp.

I know that I have always enjoyed the pristine beauty of the Colorado river, which runs through some of the land which is in question. It would be so great if you and any of your friends would join us at Momentum this Friday (12th)  night.  Fun stuff will be there including awesome gear you can bid on. You just might score yourself an awesome deal on some sweet gear and help raise money... at the same time.
climbing 8-12
Fundraiser starts at 10:20
hope to see you there.

p.s. I still have lots of hats coming... keep checking.

breakin' 101

I'm not sure why I've never seen this until today.
Mr. Rogers really is "the groove in your hips." or, wait a second, that kid is the groove in your hips.  Either way, there is groove, and it is most likely in your hips, which Shakira has told us time and time again, cannot lie. Either way I really like breakdancing, Mr. Rogers, and Shakira.

here it comes...

End of September
First of October
Last Week

I think this is Mt. Superior.
I love living in Utah where, just as you are done with summer and it is time to put away your bike (at least for wusses like me) you get to pull out your skis and watch for snow. Then hope to hell that you can figure out a way to get work off so you can go skiing. And, although I loved living in Logan, and skiing the Beav will always have some sort of, "Fun college life" memory associated with it, I can't wait to be back in S.L.C. by the Cottonwood canyons. way to go snow.

mind of its own

For the past six years, I have driven the same green saab. It has been on countless road trips all around the western United States....not to mention, Mexico...twice. Although I love this car, i will be the first to admit, it has had way beyond its fair share of engine, electircal, who the heck knows, problems. However, for some reason, I never want to get rid of it. Lately it has had an especially interesting issue. Every now and then, let's say one out of every ten times, it just doesn't want to start. I will try four or five times, think to myself, "here we go again" then usually call someone for a ride. I don't worry too much because I know in an hour I will go back to my car, and it will start, as if nothing ever happened. Weird, i know, but that is just how it works.

What I realized I do now a days is, everytime my car does start on the first time, I clap my hands and shout "YES!"
I didn't think anything of it until today when a friend was with me and asked, "Yes what?"
I replied, "My car started...first try!"
her: "oh is something wrong with it?"
me: "it's a saab."

i hope i drive it for the next twenty years.

Jack's son, Hole.

Well hello.....If anyone was wondering, it takes a lot of extra effort to post if you don't have the internet at your house or work.

A couple weeks ago some kids went up to run the Snake river. It was freezing but tons of fun as basically every river trip always is. It was just lucky that the Lotoja was also that very same day. I stood on the side of the road and cheered the riders on for probably an hour. Then I figured out a way to get to the finish line so I could watch Zack, Clayt, and Austin end their 206 mile ride. WAY TO GO!

And so it goes...

I graduated from Utah State University on May 2nd, 2008. I lived and worked in Logan all summer. A couple days ago, i moved to SugarHouse. Now I live in a teeny tiny apartment on 13th East right by the park. On the 25th I am starting a real job at Highland High School as a special education teacher. Also, I am once again dating the love of my life, Hasen. I guess that's all.

graduated - moved - real job - boy - happy

Bienvenidos Amigos Rojos!

_ _ _ _ _ _
one of the best things about summer....yummy fresh vegetable garden in my backyard. thanks Jess. she planted everything we need to make salsa. buen provecho muchacha! gracias.

Snake in the Wood Pile...

I went with Dusty and a few of his friends to a cabin in Scofield last weekend. It is absolutly gorgeous there. Look how much fun we all had...
I felt so bad when I caught that fish i almost started crying. This was the first time I have ever been fishing, I didn't think I would actually catch a fish. I yelled, "throw it back, don't let it die..." Howeer Jessica did the dirty work, which is okay I suppose because she ate it for dinner. Poor little guy, he didn't even know what was coming....

strange brew...

Today at work I noticed a drawer in the KITCHEN labeled PENS/RAZORBLADES/THERMOMETERS. As if this wasn't weird enough, my curiosity lead me to open the drawer. what did I find? Tampons.

What do Feist and nice drivers have in common?

Nothing probably, but here are a couple stories....

Last night I went to the Feist show in Deer Valley which was absolutely amazing. She is just a dainty babe o la rockin' out on a huge guitar. I think maybe everyone there either added to their crush, or developed one on her. Good music, pretty night, fun dancing.

The ride there was a bit adventurous as my car had a "too hot to trot" problem. It decided to stop working half way to Park City. So, we left the car in Parley's canyon and decided to travel by thumb. It actually worked out well. The three of us hitchhiked all the way to the front doors of the Deer Valley lodge and made it to the show with time to spare. Thanks lady. (Nice Driver #1) Not to worry we got a ride back to the car after the show and it started right up.

Earlier today as i was coasting out of Sardine canyon on my way back to Logan town I was a good 15 miles per hour over the speed limit. A girl passed on the other side of the road and flashed her lights tons of times. This is one of my favorite ways of sticking it to the man. It is the one way we as normal drivers can unite against the bacon. I slowed down and in about five seconds I passed a blood thirsty, radar loving cop a zoid. That girl saved me $100.00. No ticket for me. Thanks lady. (Nice Driver #2)

peach please...

These are my nephews...Cole, Luke, and Van. They made over $30.00 in two hours selling snowcones in our front yard. It looks like lemonade has finally found its match, which is sad, but true. This photo was taken about five minutes before Brights (the dog) threw up ON a customer's shoe. We gave that kid a free snowcone and let him use our hose to clean the puke off his foot. Everyone was way grossed out but for some reason I couldn't stop laughing. good girl brights.

There she goes...

My darling sister, Natalie, got married yesterday. She had the ceremony in my parents' backyard. It was one of the funnest weddings I have ever been to. We danced our pants off. I will probably post more pictures later. This is me with my two sisters right before my dad walked her down the aisle. way to go Natty tang.

Dear Yamaha,

Excuse me, I love summer night motorcycle rides.
I never drive. I just hold on.
Thanks and have a great day.

The old, the bold.

During the summer time the young move from Logan, and the the old flock to Logan. They are called "summer citizens." These oldies come from all over the country to cool off in Cache Valley for a few months. Anyway, Camie and I were put in charge of taking them on outdoor adventures. Of course I got excited about it and came up with a little name for the club....Golden Adventures. We meet each Wednesday for a hike or canoe adventure. I suppose it is just a lucky coincidence that I happen to absolutely love old people. We went up the Green Canyon single track today, which is in its prime from all the rainy days we have had. We walked up a few miles and back. They all seemed to really enjoy the canyon, none of them had been up there before. We are taking them disc golfing next week, which should be fun considering I am the worst disc golfer I have ever met.

Moab, head and all.

Moab Breakfast

Camie Stucki and Me
Headless Mike...they tried to kill this guy to eat.
Somehow he just kept living...I think it had something
to do with his brain stem. They fed him straight down the
esophagus for 18 months until he accidentally choked on something and died.
Fruita's beautiful claim to fame.

Well, I stayed in Logan this summer. So far, totally awesome. The first week I was gone on a training trip for work. We went to Fruita, Colorado which is famous for not only biking, but also a headless chicken named Mike. We also stayed in Moab for a night on floated down the daily for some river love. I had a good time despite the fact that all the guys that were on the trip are married. You don't get no love if your hanging out with married dudes. However, I had fun getting to know everyone better, especially my girl Camie. The end.

Here she is, my puppy, Brights. She is actually not a puppy at all. She is almost 12 years old. That is 84 in dog world. 84! She still enjoys walks, but not runs. Right now she lives with me in Logan town. I got her shaved for summer. So dang cute and good and nice and old.

onesie for all

This is Van Hackett, the happiest kid I've ever seen. This onesie was a little bit of an experiment. I am trying to make new things to sell at the Farmers' markets. I am still working out a few minor details. If you have any special request let me know. I'll make it, and you can buy it from me. Thanks to Zack and Kim for the cute photos and the cute kid.

P.S. Holly loves Van
