Ancient Times

Loveland Pass

And this is how it was if you were from the midwest in the mid 90s. Everyone had Burton decks except that far out kid on the end. I still have that Rippey hanging out in my living room. For fun we had to make runs to Colorado. Man, you can even tell how flat Colorado is in that picture. But we were there to hit some jump called the Ironing Board, or some shit like that. Supposedly EVERYONE was hitting it. I’m guessing this was winter of 97-ish and we were 2-3 years late on it.

But let’s take in the finer points here:

  • Ralph Lauren Hat
  • Dub Jacket (so legit at the time)
  • sunglasses, not goggles
  • One dude rocking Airwalk boots.
  • On Thumbs up, one peace sign, one shaka, and Moefaniel has disabled hands on account of his mitts.

Soon after this photo was taken I snapped a binding strap, coming off a massive 3-ft air and tumbled, one foot still on the board for about 100 feet. So awesome.

    i don’t know this “Baker” you speak of.

  4. TTG says:

    Mt. Baker in Washington state, turd.

    We here in Washington prefer that you leave off the unnecessary “state.” The other Washington gets “D.C.” added on, as we are the mainest Washington.

    Thanks.

    Flatlanders like RVR aren’t aware of this while those of us with Washington driver licenses and Washington voting privileges, enjoying a lack of state income tax are aware of this…

    Let’s go over the Washingtons that I know:

    1. Chocolate City
    2. The peanut guy (Not a baker)
    3. That one that had like 40 goddamn dicks
    4. The street I lived on in college
    5. Washington in St. Louis

    That last one is confusing as hell.
