I am in the middle of filming a potentially 12-14 hour shoot on a movie set here in downtown Portland. To pass the time in between takes, I decided to post a couple of short videos that my dad shot of me skiing at Mt. Hood Meadows last month.
The weather was beautiful. Later in the day, however, the snow started to melt and wreak havoc on my form. If you look closely, you can see me crash at the end of both clips.
I didn't build up much speed for this clip, but the camera was still rolling when I ate snow at the end.
It seems that there is no end in sight for today's film shoot, so I also have time for a post-Memorial day tribute to my cousin, Jake Davis. During his 15 day leave from Iraq, we were able to celebrate his temporary homecoming on his actual birthday.
He took time out for this bad boy pose with his brand new Springfield 45 XD handgun. Who would ever think to put that on a birthday list?
We'll be counting down the next six months with you, Jake. You'll be back in the States before you know it. Thanks for bravely serving our country. We are all so proud of you!
