That was the Holley Farms Store. I used to sell merchandise to that store and the owners name was Ali. I always called it the Ali Arms Store. 1 night after parting I had to take a leak, so I go behind the Ali Arms Store, and all of the sudden I hear "Don't piss on me". Some bum was passed out behind...

Mulligans sold cases of O.V. splits. The bartender would hand you the full case and just dump a bunch of ice over it. You'd walk away carrying the case away from the bar with1/2 the ice cubes falling off. Then when you finished the beer, you could actually break it on the floor. The bouncer would ju...

That's at the other end of Allen St.
Brick Bar, the Old Pink and Neitzches were a blast!
Allentown was awesome freaks everywhere.
I lived directly across from Mulligans from 1990-1995.

Killer day at Whiteface. 20,000 vertical and totally spent before noon. Man you can get a ton of vertical here. That was def all I had in me today. Since it was so cold the snow was as light as it gets. Poached tons of closed trails with over 2 feet of fresh. Almost as good as the biking at Whitefac...

20 inches overnite. Today will be a sick powder day. Summit quad is open and the vertical is pretty big (3,430 feet). Did a top to bottom yesterday and it's a long way down from the top. Yesterday was groomers the whole way down, but today it will be in the trees. Actually a few of the bike trails w...

That's approx $50.00 less than gas will be just to get to Vegas from here. Nice find! If it's Southwest they have non stops I have seen in that price range. Since the kid has a chance at a free room and winning $500.00, sounds like an easy choice. It will be great seeing new faces on the podiums ou...

We have our courses decided for the Mob n Mojave. We have an awesome Super D course for this race. Just awesome! I was concerned this route would be too short. Well it was timed by a pro last week at 9:58. I no longer think this is too short of a race course. He timed the downhill course at around 3...
