Middle of nowhere Idaho
This past weekend I rallied up to a rail comp at Barrie's Ski and Sports in Pocatello. It was a carpet only event so I judged and hung out with the local kids. They put their carpet mat burns to the test and pushed pretty hard on a 100% artificial surface. Barrie's built a cool down box for the feature and later switched up the take off ramp to a more urban set up which was the first I've seen done. Modular, artificial and hyped heavy. They even had BBQ vendors there. A+ for a fall kick off parking lot extravaganza. Back to the report.
Midway up from SLC, in a place I swore not to tell, we rolled up to a field of full pipes. Naturally, skates in the back, we pulled off and headed down some farmer roads to find the pipes. We skated for a bit, it was ruffer (as always) than it usually looks and some gravel in the bottom didn't help. The weather and backdrop was all time for this lil excursion so we maxed out the trip with some skating. We later needed some hydrogen peroxide to clean up some flesh and scored a couple sick hick t's for 5 bucks.
