It started with a spur of the moment phone call, where Jack Fogelquist and Max Kauert got an invite to a new spot. Eager for a change of scenery, they headed out and were blown away. Realizing the potential that the vast green hills and deep valleys offered, they knew they would have to come back again for a longer and more serious stay. Fast forward three years and Jack, Max, and filmer Keegan Quiroz were in Jack's front yard at sunrise, stacking up camping supplies into the beds of Jack's Ford Ranger and Max's F150.

They were soon on their way, making the roadtrip into the barren, yet familiar, rolling hills. Morale was high as they traversed in, making it to their home for the next eight days by dusk. They were quick to set up camp, cook up some carnitas burritos, and get a fire going. It wasn't all fun and games, as the temperature quickly dropped, getting well below freezing. With the new day brought ambitious exploring as the three set out to makes some sketches on their blank canvas. A steady routine quickly developed: wake up, make breakfast, dig through the day, grab some lunch, dig until the light got golden, shoot, get a fire going, eat dinner, and enjoy some moonshine over the days accomplishments. The first few days seemed to fly by, building like crazy and banking shots.

The three grew weary about half way through, and with some of the bigger and scarier features left on the list, it was time to hammer down. There were all sorts of emotions that came out of each individual feature; excitement of planning it, frustration of rebuilding it until it worked, fear of testing it, and the elation of riding it. That stoke and energy at the end of each long day was what kept everyone going, as a new stunt came with each horizon. Finally, the eighth day came, where they finished building the first feature that they scouted, which was coincidentally the biggest. After a stressful, yet rewarding day, dusk was upon the three as they rushed to take down camp, fired up the trucks, and depart from the place that they came to know and love so much.

Long Week
