Lot's of dudes there this year and I'm about to name drop: Blue, Tedore, Frasier, Gerard, Stevens, Cocard, Kimura, Zima, Rav, Shubert, JOC, Line, Sell, Mugi, Nappy, Sleepy, Aussi Tom, Krugs, Jossi, Durrell, Kyle, Stuart, Griff, Wilmoth, Sweaty, Nate, Klocker, Shuffle, Jake, Payton, Ben Maki, Bridges, YoBeat Justin, Dick Neck, Wizard, the entire Dino's team and the list goes on. At one point we were at like 45 deep around a camp fire with motor cycles jumping the pit while Fire Ball was igniting the night.
I went down to Hood many days early as I had to drop my eldest son off for his first ever away from home camp week at HCSC. The NW dudes put together a group of 15 Northwest shreds to invade High Cascade for a week. Their drop off date was on Monday, and CAMPiTA started on Thursday. My delima was this, 4 hours down, 4 hours back to a place I had to visit twice. How do I draw a straight line and only do the drive down and back? Easy. Have my best bro from 6th grade fly out, drive down and we camp, shred and fuck off together till the event got rolling. So in hot from Mass came good ole Griff, and our adventure of being off the grid for 8 days began...
