damn. after 2 reads through that TR, the word "epic" seems like an understatement. there really is no better snowboarding tool than a van you can live in, and it seems you are using yours to the fullest! very inspiring, indeed. how did the verts work in pumice scree? i remember hauling a board up the eureka sand dunes in death valley once and being amazed at how slow the ride down was (and how much it sucked riding with sand in my boots).

i must admit your TR rekindled my frustration that my van's poor old engine cracked, causing me to spend most of the money and time i had allocated for a similar eastside mission rebuilding an old volkswagen engine instead. well at least my van got me up to my new home in seattle.... hopefully it will get me back down to bishop next spring and maybe i'll run into you at momart.

(oh yeah and i'd love to see the POV footage of the Z and gutter lines!!)

I think 3rd pillar is my favorite plateau line. Great pic!!! I drove by the plateau that day you hit it late. Looked like the plateau was crying. Wish I had a pic. Good work on getting after it on what appears to be a very successful eastside binge. I thought we had it good on our linkup of north couloir and kindergarten. I was soooo jealous when I saw BG's footage when he added zebra. That was effing RAD!!! Keep up the good work. We should hit up Shasta soon!

Awesome Jim. Great to see you post a tr again!! You've convinced me, next year I will spend a least 7-straight days living out of my truck on the east side.

Magic Carpet Ride (gutter) makes me shart just looking at it. Thanks for the ride down S chute the other day and helping me unsand my vajayjay. I still feel like a nervous mom watching you hop around checking out the steep entrances to gnarville up there on the plateau

I don't know if I responded to this TR yet, but Jimw...tks for letting me be a part of your eastside odyssey over the course of 2 weekends. Post up some of that skating footage already!!!!!

From a first person perspective, I can attest to both the resiliency of the verts vs. pumice, and the base of Jim's rockboard, and his clothing (which took a beating), but mostly, to his determination for verting straight up that SOB.

Good times, look forward to riding with you again soon.
