My dirtbag challenge bike. Goal: build a “custom” bike for under $500. Made my first exhaust ever from some old conduit and a cut up cr250 expansion chamber. Not too pretty but its free. All in all i have under $250 into this bike including the price of purchase. Up next is a pan seat, headlight and guages. #dirtbagchallenge#xl75

Dirtbag - The film about the San Francisco Dirtbag Challenge, the most hardcore build off event in the world of motorcycle customization has its own philosophy: if you want a wicked motorcycle, then build it yourself!⠀
The annual Dirtbag Challenge, an idea by Poll Brown, was born as an answer to the american culture of luxurious choppers built with no more than 1000$ in less than a month.⠀
A no frills, non sponsored contest that gathers thousands of supporters and motorcycle lovers. The film by Paolo Asuncion, presented at the 2014 Motorcycle Film Festival, follows the hilarious and formative mishaps of some of the builders from the last editions. The key idea is to make do without a lot. And to never, ever take it too seriously.⠀

Il film sulla Dirtbag Challenge di San Francisco. L’evento build off più duro e puro del mondo custom è anche una filosofia. Vuoi una moto che spacca? Costruiscitela! ⠀
La Dirtbag Challenge è un evento annuale nato dalla mente di Poll Brown per rispondere alla moda statunitense dei chopper più costosi, con moto fatte con meno di 1000 dollari, in meno di un mese. Un contest senza fronzoli, senza sponsor, partecipato da migliaia di sostenitori e appassionati. Il film di Paolo Asuncion, presentato al Motorcycle Film Festival 2014, segue le spassose disavventure costruttive di alcuni dei builders delle scorse edizioni. Denominatore comune: sapersi arrangiare con poco. E mai, mai prendersi sul serio⠀
Puoi trovare questo film in VoD anche nel nostro shop! > https://buff.ly/2FDrox6⠀⠀

This pigtailed throwback comes to you circa 2006, the first time I hiked enchanted rock. It was during this feisty 16 year old time that I really started to pick up hiking and camping. Growing up in an outdoor family , I felt connected to the outdoors at a young age . But It wasn't until I really hiked that I felt the ultimate sense of belonging and peace . My soul lit up, lungs burned in the cold and my eyes wowed at all the stars. The best gifts are those experiences we have interacting with our natural world because we need it. In light of the negative political shifts that are happening to some of our nation's parks it is more imperative than ever that we express our deepest gratitude for these places and to fight to keep them.
This cold and rainy weather in Austin today has me thinking about cold, rainy camping adventures. Often people shy away from camping or backpacking in this weather but don't let it stop you! •
My top tips for cold, rainy camping are:
- have a synthetic sleeping bag to minimize condensation - line the inside of your backpack with a trash at and stuff your tent in between the trash bag and backpack so you keep everything else dry
- always have a couple dry socks stored away in your sleeping bag so you have dry feet at night
- buy a waterproof glove lining for your hands - have an inflatable sleeping bad to keep you off the wet ground - sleep in the middle of your tent so you don't get wet from the sides
- wear gaiters to cover your boots to prevent them from getting wet - have a blister care kit ready.
What are some of your best practices for cold, rainy camping ?
Wrote a little bit about the science behind our brains on nature. I thought this picture from my solo trip to Alaska where I spent days completely unplugged from technology was fitting ! Link in profile!
One of the most rewarding experiences I've had this year was leading this group on top of a mountain in Northern Washington. This day was my most challenging day yet as an outdoor guide, with some challenging terrain that I had not yet experienced with other people. We covered snow, sliding rocks and steep edges. I did this as part of a further education course with @nolsedu in order to hone my outdoor leading skills. Needless to say I am so grateful and humbled by other outdoor adventurers who believe in the power of leading and hiking together. Special thanks to @audrajung and @socirincione for being the most badass outdoor female leaders I know and pushing me to be a better guide!
How to be a dirt bag biker:
Step 1 - take your bike apart and throw it in a hockey bag to bring it on the plane. Still not sure how that worked out.
On another note - anyone have beta for bringing wheels as a carry on? Stoked for @thisisroam in 1 day. #dirtbagchallenge#winning @thekonasupremes
