Home Sweet Home

I have always enjoyed repurposing bits that I am really stoked on. It’s funny how some things that were made for a very specific purpose, can live on years after, and continue to provide pure stoke just by the sight of them. Our last year that we went to Interbike and actually had our own space, we built our booth around the new graphics we were using on the Ruben frame. Our booth out there always felt like a sanctuary for me. We would build a different one every year that was cut from wood, and painted. I think because it was so much fun making the booth, that’s why it felt like home in all that chaos. Some of the years we were literally still sanding and painting at some of the camp spots on the way out. After we got home that year, I set it up around my desk at T-1. Painted the walls a darker blue so it all would fit. When we made the move to Empire in 2016, I got an idea of how I could use it once again. But no water this time. It took a little while, but finally finished it not too long ago. This time becoming a gateway to our little home once again. Stoked! - Joe
