TR: !Caution! "Patchwork off of CA HWY 88" – 08/12/06

Its an all too familiar scene in the middle of August in California….

You wake up to go cruise the world’s most famous body of water east of the Pacific, west of the Atlantic, south of the the Gulf of Alaska, north of the southern tip of Chile, and between South Lake Tahoe and Tahoe City….

LAKE TAWHWHOEH!

Spirit – ‘ReDial’ off of Headhunterz LP on Metalheadz



You start off slow, enjoying a scalding cup of coffee….

Stare at shades of winter on Tallac…

And begin your summer paddle to Emerald Bay…

People wave at you when you’re nude and taking photos of boats…

Rockier than the Rockies…

666 grabs some 60 F water for patchwork session…

Outkast made a song about this water….

But the boats left, and I had to swim home…

So naturally, after being properly hydrated, Pimpin’ Frog and Shugs grabbed another for the enormously long 30 minute commute to the bottom of the Patch…

The Patch quiver…Nitro Supernatural, Seth Vicious, and Kingswood Skinny:

And the project comes into view…

View from the summit…

Shugs begins patching up the suncups…

And misses Jamie Pierre’s jump by 244 feet…

But lands the record air into a carve…

And ladies and gentlemen, he’s finished. Yes, one run on the Patch and he’s more than content…

We find Pimpin’ Frog contemplating his line, or feeding marmots…

At around 61 degrees, its the steepest line in the Sierras…

but the Frog, decides to only throw in ONE TURN!

But only to warm up on his ski-dancing routine…

The Frog’s legs are now fried….


The patchwork included some dangerous work on the "gnardical face"

666 tries not to slip into the massive crevasse…

His edges hold and finds an invisible gate…

Patchwork halfway finished…

The groomer…

The jump…

You go too far or don’t land, you hit the mother earth…

666 patches the dirt on the side, but it immediately melted…

Shugs told us to leave, but I’m going skiing damnit!

YOU PARK AT THE BOTTOM OF THE SNOW! WHY NOT ANOTHER LAP?

Mid August Sierra face-shot!

Pimpin’ Frog wearing the dope pant, hat, and polo…

This is what you do when you don’t want to drive to Mt. Hood…

One more layer…

Patchwork complete, you may now use the Patch…

But not before Shugs rolls through the Mississippi…
