I really can’t remember where these are at – Millcreek/Holladay area.  But they were fun.  Kaycee dropped a pin and we plan on doing some serious mason bricking.  – Beastmaster

Spot Check: Gateway FrontRunner Station

If you ever take the FrontRunner from SLC north, you’ll notice that they’ve recreated the main FrontRunner hub at a new location by the Gateway.  Handicap rails and all.  The upside of this is that there isn’t a UTA office at the new stop so it’s basically a none bust unlike the main hub is.  Their stainless rails so be sure to bring wax and be respectful of the FrontRunner users so that it doesn’t get capped.

Spot Check: DIY Box

Last weekend Kaycee and I stubbled upon a dumpster full of crates made of 2x & 4×4’s along with some 1/2 sheets of plywood.  We took advantage of the find and built and loaded up my Subaru inside and out with supplies, picked up some PVC at Home Depot and constructed a large jersey barrier style grind box.  Unfortunately the plywood was a little too rigid to fit to the transitions which make the box somewhat of a challenge to blade but all in all it can be situated several different ways that make for a fun session.

If you do blade the box be sure to put it back so that the local businesses don’t have it hauled away.  Gracias.  Bl8orDie DIY.

Spot Check: Burnside Skatepark – Portland Oregon

If you ever find yourself in the Portland area, I highly recommend checking out the infamous Burnside Skatepark.  Rarely will you see blader footage or pics from Burnside because of how hostile the local skateboards can not only be to bladers but also to anyone not who is not a local.  Located in a shady part of the industrial side of Portland, Burnside was an illegally built skatepark constructed under the Burnside Bridge that brings people in to downtown Portland.  The construction started around 1990 with a couple banks and transitions and later was developed into the most amazing collection of pools and bowls ruggedly but well built.  Aside from having an amazing layout and skates like street, the park is extremely picturesque.  So go check it out but be sure you get up early to beat the haters.. – Beastmaster
