While this past summer was winding down, we packed up the van and went roadtrippin¹ through the Northwest. The crew was tight: Mark Appleyard, Aaron Suski, Caswell Berry, David Gravette and Ben Raemers along with Portland locals Jeff Halstad shooting the video and Garric Ray snapping photos. With minimal requirements in our itinerary, we were free to roam the streets and parks of the Northwest in search of epic terrain. Throughout the trip, Garric kept talking about a park with massive dirt jumps nestled in the woods of Portland, Oregon that bikers had built years ago. Over time the dirt had packed to nearly ride-able terrain. He was insisting we give it a look and Gravette chimed in backing the idea, so once we made it to ole PDX we went and checked it out. Once we pulled up, we saw what the fuss was all about. Had I picked up a bike in my youth, this place would have been a dream! What followed was an intense session where Caswell, Gravette and Benny Boy tested the limits of what we thought possible on these dirt jumps. Gravette having some recent injuries was unable to skate to his full potential and, not wanting to miss out on the fun, got up and hucked a few jumps on a local kids bike to wrap up the session. Overall, it was a great experience with a good crew and good vibes and we left unscathed(nearly).
