Another one...

Well as the year 2016 is just less than 12hours away I am doing my typical glance back as we all do around this time and some people get thankful and start the wish list for the next year. I'm not much different in that aspect I do have a wish list but it's not so much wishes as its goals I know I will obtain. Thankful for all the people who make my life a little easier and even possible, I typically run pretty wire to wire and don't set a lot of time aside for myself and when people help me it really gives me a chance to breath so shout out the behind the scenes favors and shit that people help me with. My  controlled chaos life can get hectic and lazy and hectic all in the same day lol but I like it that was I guess! 2015 was likely the least active on my bike I've ever been which ironically it's the most active I've ever been with kids and camps also so it's a double edged sword. I started calabasas camps and that has always been something I wanted to get rolling and it gained some traction this year and was a solid effort. I was listening to some stuff the other day and someone was reflecting on leaving something a little better than when you found it and it really made sense to me in the aspect that I may not have done much of what I consider quality riding and my own ambitions on the bike but I definitely did a lot with kids and that will always Be around longer than any accolades I come upon. As the year started to unwind I figured 16 would bring me more time for myself but in a twist of events it's likely going to be much more of the opportunity to stack up cash and I always side with that just because I have some goals that are only achieved financially so the bike unfortunately will get little usage again as the calendar rolls around. I do have a plan to hit the worlds in 16 and we shall see if it pans out, I can settle for one cool trip versus a bunch of random ones. Kinda crazy to see priorities change up but refreshing at the same time knowing you are growing and becoming full circle so I'm content with it... Until I get the bmx itch again haha. 2015 it's been solid and 2016 lets keep the momentum going and handle some business. Happy New Year everyone stay safe and enjoy what the blank slate of 2016 offers you!

Catching up is easy to do!

Made a phone call today to a person I text on a regular basis and the phone call ended up being a little over 2 hours. Its amazing to me how much you can discuss with someone you haven't seen in awhile. We talked about a few things and just had plenty to say from stories to experiences, opinions and what not. Was a great conversation and don't know that I've had that much to say or listen to someone in some time. Starting to plan what races Im gonna hit next year and what events I want to attend so thats going to be cool to make it official by booking some flights and dropping some cash :) Thats all for now going to get back to watching bull riding. :)

Vegas... Or Nah :(

Planned on hittin Vegas this week and chilling out and watching some bull riding at the National Finals Rodeo but plans went south so looks like a typical week in SJ :( Booooooo Could have gone still but didn't feel like trying to plan hotel and car arrangements last minute so fuck it gonna wash this trip and save it for the next round. Good news of the month is come January Ill be in full BMX race goon mode again. Figure since I wont be working the city as much and definitely not weekends I have plenty of chances to hit some nationals and travel more. Definitely not going to travel as much as I did in the past years racing but I figure 6-7 weekends just go to some fun races that I enjoy or haven't been to before. South Park Pennsylvania jumps out and Louisville immediately comes to mind, and probably a few more random places should be a good time. Gotta get Alan Porter back on a bike to be my road dog so we can split costs and do it like old times, that fool sure did take down a #1 national ranking while running around with me and such a great year of memories I had with him. Thats all for now just wanted to blog so I can keep somewhat in routine and not slack off!
