Another Gold medal

Posted by Neil Hartmann on January 30, 2012

Shaun White added another gold medal to his growing collection today. A perfect score of a 100.00! Does that mean no one can ever beat Shaun ever again? Even if someone gets a 100 score it will only tie his record right? Regardless the riding is amazing.

And here he explains his run!

The cover up keeps getting bigger

Posted by Neil Hartmann on January 30, 2012

Traveling in the Tohoku area right now has once again reminded me how badly this area and these people are being screwed by their own Government. Yesterday I met a young guy from Ofuna city, which was hit badly by the Tsunami last year. He lost three close friends and said he was only saved because he was snowboarding when the earthquake happened so he was far away when the Tsunami hit. Listening to people’s stories here is incredible.

Posted by Neil Hartmann on January 28, 2012

Back on the road again! Left my house late last night to catch the 5am ferry to Hachinohe and then made the drive to APPI Kogen. Snow looks pretty good here. Tonight is the 6th year for Jazzy Sport relay music event so I guess the road trip starts off with a party!
