A nice afternoon at Stevens Pass and looking forward to night fall.

I still have some work to do with the cameras as I’m not getting the best shots. Yet I’ve been doing more night skiing and not enough in the days. Hopefully we will switch to some days and more footage for the 2012-2013 season. Here is a clip from Friday night in Top Flight Terrain Park. I short the last one but they the biggest of the season with the last having a 20′ gap to the landing.
The skiing is great and loving the snow coming down.
My hair brain idea to start a weed site has started to take shape. The designer has been hard at work and the site is set for a second design meeting. The shape has come along and I think it will do well for marijuana sales in Washington.
Why I know people who don’t approve of this business I personally feel it can be a great opportunity and a viable side business. I’ve tried screenshotting the website but with this new software, Windows 8 Pro, lol, I don’t know how and don’t have access to my Jing account login. Ah well. Soon. So visit the site if you have a change and tell me what you think.
Cheers, – Toby
While Joy and I were on our road trip to Arizona to deliver her folk’s car, we stopped by Count’s Kustoms. We initially wanted to go to the Pawn Stars’ shop but the line was huge so Joy asked where else would I like to visit and Count’s Kustoms came to mind – I wanted to go back in October during Pubcon but I was sick upon arrival. So we punched in the coordinates and headed to the shop. I thought their shop would be just a merchandising shop, which I wouldn’t complain about, but right when we walked in we where asked “are you here for a tour?” and I said “hell yea”.
After registering on a guest computer, we were let into the back where all the goods are kept and holy shit! As a shade tree mechanic myself, I was stoked at what I seen. But that wasn’t the real treat. Our tour was given by the one and only Horny Mike. It was a great tour and Mike shared so much about working with the History Channel crew, about working with cameras around, and how things go around the shop. Mike was a great host and having a personal tour regarding his work was AWESOME! I didn’t think anyone I’ve watched on TV would actually be there an let alone give us a tour. I took a lot of pictures (below) and Joy and I even got a shot with Mike.
To cap it all off I purchase a Count’s Kustom jacket as to rep around home, car shows, and a race events. It is pretty slick and I feel pretty badass wearing it. If you’re ever in Vegas I would recommend swinging by their shop and/or just visiting their website for some shwag or custom work for your ride. I asked about a custom hood, shop rates where posted, and may be something

I have been searching for ideas for the Elf on the Shelf and so has Joy. To my surprise, this morning Snowgirl was in my stocking hanging out. To cute. I stayed at my place last night after skiing so Joy sent me the picture below this morning. I love it.
