Pick-up

From rain to nice looking weather. Nice Friday evening in Lillehammer.

Drove up to pick up Ida from her 10 hour shift at work. She was kind of tired, I can totally see why.

Just testing my new nikon coolpix, and checking the weather!

This one got a little dark. But the guy on the shot seems to be saticfied with having a day off!
Off to watch Entourage. I just had to jump on the wave. Seems like everyone else is watching it, so what the hell…

King of the road

Jumped into the car again this morning. It was time to get back to Lillehammer, had to work Saturday. So there was nothing else to do than brake up my “wannabe vacation”.
Back on the road, I like driving cars, so it doesn’t matter if I have to drive 400 km, again.

Just for fun really! I know the road I am driving in and out. I think it has been 25-30 times in the last 4 years.

Norway is a beautiful country, no matter what. I don’t tend to see what the nature has to offer when I see it every day, all year. But I can see why german, chinese, japanese and american tourists come all the way here to see the nature.

The new black sheeps, only they are white. The mountainpass of Venabygdsfjellet has a lot of them. To much… Scary to drive speedy up there with them lying around.

When I had parked the car outside my house I saw my summer-rail gear. Got super-pumped to go for a session. Hopefully they get some snow soon, then it’s game on for my rail-skills to grow!
Picked up my new camera one hour ago, and I like it a lot! Guess pictures are everything in a blog. Don’t you agree? Yes you do!

Ping-pong ball

Since I only got two days at home, I really wanted to do as much as possible when I first were in the hood.

Started of with some easy trampolining, but it’s been I while and I realized I suck! Doing things you know how to, rocks! But things you do a lot and then give it a long break, doesn’t seem to be just as much fun. So I left the trampoline the way I found her, deserted.

Frustrated feeling. Have you ever been doing something you like a lot, and been asking yourself the question why you are doing this? Why do I do it when it’s more dangerous than fun? I kept asking these questions a lot today, and it doesn’t help surfing facebook/youtube for videos these days.

14 year olds throwing triple backs like there is no tomorrow. While I, on the other hand…. give her my best shot with a 1,5 meter high bio-ish trick. Better not post it on NS.com, hate is all they got!

Went down to a friend, left the trampoline carreer blank and open. He has got the sickest home stereo system by far. Love the sound of fresh beats!

When I first started my: “let’s-go-visit-old-friends” mercury, I thought I could pay my cousin and her family a nice visit. This girl right here leaves Norway behind in a month, for 4 fresh months in sunny Brazil. Surf and beach volley as far as it goes! Must be soft!
I need to get some sleep, feels like I never relax these days, looking foreward to winter when I can be my own boss. Got 400 km to drive tomorrow morning. I pray for snow outside the ice-ring!!

400 km later vol 2. – The car!

I have been waiting a few weeks in exitement, just to get home to see this car. Outiside it’s nothing special, original Audi S2 from 1991. It’s an old car, looks pretty much the same as a Audi 90 coupe. BUT, this one has something special under the hood. Nearly 300 horsepower and a pretty nice car sound.

Just a “small” horn to blow out the air from the turbo-pressure. This one makes a loud wistle-sound. Me like!

When I visited Lars, my friend and lucky owner of this car, he was busy mounting the turbo-charger meter.

As I said, nothing special outside, but inside it’s a quite different feeling with sports-interior and the sound of a race-car. Can’t wait until he gets the new exaust-system. It’s going to be swell!!
To be honest, it was worth driving 400 km to be a passenger on this car!
Gotta go sleep, have to get up at 8.00 A.M baaaaah….

Getting done

I got home from work last night and started right away, finishing the wall to Ida’s storage room/ guest room. It was a little more work than first expected, but that’s just because I am new to this subject.

After putting on the panel on one side, I stuffed it with isolation, and started to put boards on the other side. Really easy when you got the lengths right.

So this is what it looks like right now. All I have to do is to adjust two boards that goes next to the wall. Secondly I need to fill in a few boards on the left side, so the door would fit in. I am not a carpenter. But if some of you are, please leave a comment telling me if it’s approved or not. Did I pass the test? Let me know!

Wasn’t exactly happy with beeing inside a dark warm room when it was warm outside, and sunny!! That has to be the first day in three weeks, sucky summer.
Today I am working half-day, and jumping into the car at 2 PM. Driving home to meet my family, and take care of some personal stuff. Then it’s back to Lillehammer on Friday. Looking foreward to hit my rail this weekend. Hopefully they have got snow at the ice-ring!

Somebody don’t know how lucky they are

I usually try not to be the jealus type of guy, and eventhough I am a fan of Jon Olsson, I am not jealus at a regulary basis BUT, today I had to….

Jon were out enjoying the city-life in Cannes last night, just “stumbling” over one of the top 5 dj’s in the world!! Joachim Guarraud from France.,, Jon if you can hear me, you don’t know how lucky you are! Beeing able to watch one of my great idols live.
Damn…

Perfect crafts-man

Well, well, well. I’m not much of a craftsman, I’m a skier who does tricks on skis. But you know, the ladies want things to look good, and they want a place to store their clothes. So today I had to try to end my little inside project.

Pick up your tools man, get it done!

Well, this is new to me, so it’s a little learning-by-doing task. Not the right setting to be a failure here. Everything has to be in correct angels and correct lengths, when you are building a wall.

A few easy steps to build an indoor wall:
– Make sure you have got enough coffee.
– Don’t rush it, you might end up braking the walls rather than building them up.
– Play music, the type you like, then play it loud!
– Pick up the drill/ hammer, and pray that the planks knock them self up against the wall!
And there you go, your very own homemade wall.
It’s pouring down rain, so I should have been outside hitting my rail set-up. BUT, it didn’t happend. I call it a day, and hopefully i’m going to dream about perfect parks and winter tonight.. gaah. I wanna go skiing.
