Damn…I’ve been off the grid for too long.
This post will be an attempt to summarize the tail end of 2012.
More importantly… give you an idea of what’s to come.

Let’s pick up where I left off, in Pemby.


A typical grocery run/walk into town.


When I first moved in and walked into the garage, these were the first things that caught my eye.
I quickly learned that skiing/snowboarding, & mtb (activities that were very foreign to me) was life here…The question is… what the hell was I doing in BC anyways?
Well an old friend and classmate Shane, hooked up a helper monkey position @ FYi.


FYi is a vertical design firm on the forefront of technical apparel.


From design, to patterning, to prototyping solutions… everything was done in house. I was fortunate enough to learn from the greats.


But those 2 months just blitzed by.


and I was on the road again.

EDIT Travel Map 2012

This time across the US of A.


First stop… Seattle to visit Javor! I haven’t seen her since ’05 i think.


Then to Matt & Mandy’s place in Portland.


After catching up with Matt, I was back on the road and beelined it to Utah where I got some needed rest.


As the next couple of days were packed with a few national park explorations. Bryce National Park.


Zion National Park… Yes it just keeps getting bigger and better.


Grand Canyon North Rim… all three parks left me speechless.


Forgot to mention the entire trip I was nursing downhill mtb injuries… So after the Grand Canyon.. I made every effort to get back home quick… Fresh scabs + unrelenting heat = not good… Finally made it to my cousins new home in Michigan!


Literally a week after I got home… there was record rainfall in Toronto and surrounding areas…
With my luck… I hydrolocked my motor two blocks away from my home… Two cross country treks with no problem… a small pond that formed on a side street…I had to pull the motor and tranny.

B&C's Wedding 2

My sista from anotha motha… Krista & Sean.


Then straight to Boston for Sylvian & Porter’s Wedding…. That was an extremely busy month.

It was time for backyard beautification projects, starting with the deck.

Finishing off with a shed build!!!

I’m sure there’s quite a bit I left out… But I will get to that with detailed posts!
Well there you have it… the last 4 months of my 2012 in a post.
Lots of exciting things coming in 2013! So stay tuned.
