Turn up the Base @ Mt. Baker Opening Day – 11/07/05
November 7, 2005
Location: Mt. Baker, Washington
Music: Technical Itch – ‘The Rukus’ (Kryptic Minds Remix’)â€¦
Alarm clock goes off at 4:31am and Girlski is late as usual. Hit up Winchells for some dirty burnt coffee and nasty gut busting cinnamon roll (could have used some of those Dan’s donuts)
15 minutes later, Zbo meets us at the park and ride and were off.
A quick pit stop at Glacier and we find the Kirkwood Vespa Team Captain Skier666. Quadspresso in one hand, a smoking Vespa at his rear and his thumb hitching to WA542 Mt Baker Hwy.

Skier666 promptly left on his Vespa and will be back at work in CA on Wednesday morning.
