Totally ridiculous bluebird day today. I went with the Mackle because a) it was really cold, and b) there was no casual way to work myself into the photo.

Taken at the David Olseth Memorial Skate Park, built by Dreamland Skateparks

This is what I would imagine @johno's nightmare's looking like. All of that skatable terrain under all of that unskatable snow.

Dreamland parks are the shit. THey have one about 40 miles from BR in Hammond, LA. I've also skated a few in Oregon. Most notebly the one's in Lincoln city which is where dreamland is from...those parks are so gnarly. Just looked at the pics of this park...it looks awesome.

@mattyc @john-o @ThatGuy - Montana is actually a great place to skate (in the summer) Dreamland has built a few parks here. Many small towns with nothing else going on have started throwing up amazing parks. Its the kind of state where 6 dudes in a van could do a pilgrimage for a week and skate a different, amazing park with minimal traffic every day.

CLAME for a site maintained by my coworker all about Montana parks

That's basically what we did in Oregon. My buddies were living in Northern Cali and I flew out there and we drove around in my buddies truck (3 of us) for like 4 or 5 days and skated about 12 different parks. Every little town had these awesome concrete parks. We had no plan or anything we'd just roll to the next town and ask someone if they had a park..they'd be like yeah right aruond the corner...or one time this 80 year old man told us the next town over had a really awesome one.

@hankbobs Thankfully I am a Vandal grad and a Vandal at heart -- great year to be a Vandal! If you come west at any point -- even to Coeur d'Alene, etc., let me know -- willing to drive a few hours to do a collab photo!

@hankbobs How far are you from the 10,000 dollar silver bar -- might be a fun rendez-vous -- weather permitting.
