FAB 5 FRIDAYS standard

03082 Playlist : Psychedelic Furs Kid Dangerous on Deck. Not to be Messed with. Editor’s Note: In the past, I’ve posted every Friday at V-Salon in the “Friday Night Lights” subforum consistently for over 3 years. After much thought and inner dialog, I’ve decided to pull that weekly content here: FAB 5 Fridays lives on but right here where it belongs at 44HQ. I’ll occasionally post in FNL in the future when I have something extra-ordinary, but for the most part, if you want to see my work, you’ll have to come here for exclusive content. Of course, you can always follow me on Instagram (, and you can see what I’m up to via Flickr for big man sized ...

44 X WTB Vigilante 2.3″ TCS Light · Initial Thoughts standard

With the summer comes varied weather. It’s been relatively dry so far this summer however we have been getting good amounts of rain when it does decide to precipitate. New Hampshire has a nice mix of hard pack. It also sports quite a bit of trail on the loamy side due to all the Hemlocks and assortment of Pine’s.
