On Thursday evening, I left work feeling absolutely elated. At work we had just launched our demo reel (which I insisted on naming our 2015 Wheelie Sick Edit), and I could not have been happier.
I felt like everything I'd ever done had led up to this moment.

I want to start off this post with going back to Last Friday and talking a little bit about Wheelie and the adventures we had at the Whitefish Trails Hootenanny! First of all, a big shout out to Carla, Heidi and Alan for having us participate. We had mentioned a couple of months ago that would like to do a photo booth to benefit the trails. Needless to say it was an adventure, and a rocking good time.

I read THIS article by Jeff Welch at MercuryCSC about how not everyone in the outdoor industry is an "ER" (Surfer, Climber, Snowboarder, etc.), and I thought about it all weekend. Welch states that not everyone is an "er." Some people would be more aptly described with an "ing" suffix. Like someone who lives in Texas may go snowboarding one or two days a year on vacation, but they would never buy a board, book a heli trip, or end the season with a goggle tan etched deeply enough into their pores to identify with the word snowboarder. They enjoy snowboarding without having to call themselves a snowboarder.
I'm an ER.
In just about every facet of my life, I'm a 100% all in, ER.
Snowboarder. Mountain Biker. Business Owner. Designer. Writer. Rapidly turning back into a filmmaker.
The difference between the ER and the ING suffix is a level of commitment, passion, and a willingness to completely absorb the mini culture associated with whatever noun-ing you're into.
I think my creative philosophy has a lot to do with this mindset of er-ing, and these are the traits I look for in my creative team, too.

It's been two weeks since our last blog post. I wrote this post for Lisa & Scout the day after Scout suddenly passed away. We felt that now would be the best time to pay tribute to the Awesome Howling Dog of Wheelie Creative.
Here's our blog post in loving memory of Scout The Dog! #scoutaction #scoutforever.....
Wheelie Deep Thoughts
