Kenny Bloggins

As anyone who still looks at this blog can tell, I'm really bad at keeping it up to date.  I'm trying a new format that is a lot cleaner and more streamlined, and I think I can be better about regularly posting to it. (mainly because I can set up a queue of items to go up automatically when I get distracted by life outside of the interwebz)  From here on out I recommend going to this location for assorted items from my adventures past, present, and future: Carstonia

It's been a long time since I posted anything here... got caught up in a whirlwind of a winter that carried right into a summer full of outdoor fun and distractions.  I'll try to get better about keeping things current.
The guys at Sweetgrass Productions have been doing a behind the scenes series from the making of Solitaire, and the most recent episode highlights our trip to Chile last summer.  This brings up lots of great memories from a great trip with a kickass crew. Enjoy

Camp4 Contest

Last fall I took a short little trip down south to ride my mountainbike near Virgin, UT with the guys from the Camp4 Collective.  The idea was pretty much to just have a good time and test out some ultra fancy camera toys.  Later on, the Camp4 boys ended up using the footage from that weekend as the raw material for the finalists of their "So You Think Can Edit" contest to work their magic on.
Long story short, there are now seven badass edits from a super fun weekend and they all make me look way cooler than I actually am.  Awesome.  This is all thanks to the camera wizardry of the Camp4 guys, and the and awesome talent of the seven finalists from the contest: Kevin Matluk, Joshua Van Patter, Daniel Dixon, Nicolas Teichrob, Joe Carter, Tom Malecha, and Nate Balli.  Congrats to Nate Balli on the win.  You can see all of the final edits below, or check them out with a ton of other goodies on the Camp4 Blog

Argentine Dreams

I spent a good chunk of the last two summers in South America with the crew from Sweetgrass Productions working on their most recent film, Solitaire.  This is a quick little remix of my footage from summer 2010 in Argentina.  Enjoy!

Utah Pow with Salomon Freeski TV

Last year was an incredible season, and it's kind of crazy watching this powder filled little piece by the boys at Sweetgrass Productions that was filmed at about this time of year last winter, when we only have a 29" base this year.  It features lots of good times and friends shredding around Alta and Brighton, and even though there isn't anywhere near that much snow now, it's still lots of fun out there and this vid got me even more stoked for when the snow finally decides to come this year.

Squishy Biking Fall Fun Times

I have spent a lot of time riding my bike this summer and fall.  Steve Lloyd just put together a rad mini edit of some evening riding this fall.  It was tons of fun and I can't wait to do some more.  Enjoy!

Spicy Magic Sauce

The seasons are changing and winter is pounding on the door, so I've been cooking up some fresh batches of tasty rocket fuel to help keep me warm.

It's been a long time since I've posted anything as I nearly forgot I had this blog going, but stay tuned.  I'll probably be cooking up a recap or two of more enjoyable happenings from the summer, as well as getting myself into all sorts of wintery fun times as the snow starts to pile up.
