A few months ago I got the call. My buddy James Fleege was on the horn, gave me the scoop that he wanted the story of the 2nd Annual Treasure State Shredfest to be told beyond the local news papers in Montana. Bigger. More exposure. Connect the community. Three years deep and it was time to let the world know what is brewing in Montana’s “on-the-rise” snowboard scene. Snowboarder Magazine would be a new sponsor for this years event and someone needed to get the story into their mitts.
Thats where i come in, bringing all my Hipster Magic along for the ride.  And so it began…
It was up to me to get to Missoula. Fudge. Take the Greyhound? Ish, did that too many times when I lived in Missoula. Shitty seats and worse company. Rideshare? No one replied. Thank the lord, the days of ass, grass, or cash are long gone and I don’t own a fire arm. Ding. Ring. A. Ding. Phone call. James got me a ride with Terrance, a home boy from Great Falls Montana, that just happened to be in southeast Portland looking for  co-pilot to join him on his journey to Sherdfest. 24 hours later, I found myself exhausted from the road, ready for a brew and walking into Missoula’s own Edge Of The World board shop.
Let the good times roll.
