You're viewing the original Hometown Invasion Tour website as it appeared when launched in 2006. Back then, a site built with tables and flash was commonplace. A few changes were made, but it appears as it did eleven years ago. A modern and responsive version is in the works.

Oh Boise


Monday, Jan 8, 2007 from Ogden, Utah

Well I was right when I left Boise knowing that I had a bunch of new friends for life. Now that I’m close to Boise my friend Kayla from the crew came to visit me for the day and tomorrow. We wandered around the town. I bought a new pair of jeans finally and even tried on a pair of shoes. I think it’s been almost three years since I’ve tried on a pair of shoes. It felt pretty cool, so it was nice to have an idea of what new shoes would be like. Haha. My problem is that I don’t want to throw out my shoes no matter how beat up they are. I want to be able to say that I wore them to all 50 states, even if that means having to duct tape them together to make them last. We also took a nice afternoon drive to Snowbasin, which is where some of the Olympic events were held in 2002. It’s probably the nicest lodge I’ve been in out of all my snowboarding adventures. If I got to snowboard on this trip or not I’m not sure. It’s one more sacrifice I’ve made. However, when this is all said and done, maybe next winter I’ll pursuit my other dream of moving out west and being a snowboard bum while I work on the book. Once again it’s quite nice to hang out with someone my age again and see a familiar face on the road. We attempted to get some ice skating in but the rink was being used by those pesky hockey players. Haha. I wanted to get out there and play. What’s notable about it is that the rink is another one of the facilities used in the 2002 Olympics. And it was all topped off with a nice ice cream cone. But what’s with Baskin Robbins, did they change they’re logo?

Ah yes Baskin-Robbins did change their logo this past summer! It was one of the 550 + I got to upload at work. I feel like such an insider now. Interns know all.

Yo dude. I heard Ogden sucks real bad. I had a roommate a couple of years ago who was from there. I guess he moved back and is wasting his life away. Im not sure if you are there anymore.. but if you run into a kid named "SAC" tell him he sucks and walk away. Hope things are goin well on the rest of your trip. If your still looking for dudes to stay with along the way, make sure you call teddy or me and we will get ahold of someone. Laters.
