Hey Charles, they Dirty Jobs crew will have lots of cold weather gear for sale tomorrow. You want me to grab you some of it for you before they fly out?

I only talked to Mike for a few minutes this morning (he flew in last night) but he is a very cool guy. This was the scene when I walked out the door to go to work this morning.

They were loading up and getting ready to head out on the ice to Shark Camp, which looks like this:

And this is what they’re doing there.

I was taking notes for them while they pulled out liver and vertebrae. This is what the dirty jobs crew will be filming. They’re going to have shark specials for Shark week on the Disco Channel.

Some of his crew flew in a couple of days ago to do some preliminary work. They stayed with the shark scientists living next door. I was shoveling the snow out of my airbox when they arrived and one of them walked over. He used to race MX and thought my bike was sick. I told him he could take it for a spin. He hasn’t yet (they were v busy), but said he will before he leaves.

They invited me over that evening, and even though alcohol is illegal here, I somehow discovered a bottle of 15 year old single malt scotch hidden beneath my floorboards. I brought it over and it was a hit. The whole crew are really great guys.

Funny, they flew here directly from California, so quite a temperature and culture shock. They also had a hard time buying cold weather (-30) gear in California, partially because they had their spring and summer stock out now. They’re staying in tents out on the ice for 2 days of filming. I’ll get the cold weather gear test reports when the get back. Haha.

The only thing worse than 7 degree weather is 77 degree weather in sunny, beautiful California.

here we have moderate temperatures, huge sand dunes, beautiful forests and trees and an expansive desert.

The only thing is, we can't ride on any of it!

So what's the real difference between california and montana?

I was debating whether to post this or not, but there is a nasty side to the north.

I’m glad it’s illegal as the locals don’t handle it well. They all have rifles, and one of their favorite drinking games is shooting up the town. There are regular armed standoffs with police and at least once a year an officer is killed. A couple of months ago, in one of the neighboring communities, a young officer was shot and killed right through the windshield of his vehicle. He stopped to check out a city vehicle stuck in a snow bank, the driver reportedly had been drinking. He hadn’t robbed a bank or anything, just had a few drinks and was screwing around with a company vehicle and got it stuck

My first trip to this community was 10 years ago, and one evening I was eating dinner in the hotel dining room and someone randomly fired at the hotel. My table was against an exterior wall, right beside a window. The bullet went through the glass and passed between me and the fella sitting across the table from me. A bunch of young guys were having a little party at a house across the street, opened the window and fired one shot at the hotel, and then continued partying without giving it a second thought.

A few months after that police were called to a domestic dispute. An officer arrived at the home and began talking to the homeowner. The guy grabbed the officer’s pistol from his holster and shot him with it.

My second week back in this community (last March) I heard gunshots at 10AM in the middle of the week. The police arrived, evacuated my site and the area, there was a standoff for a few hours and the police finally had to shoot the guy, twice. They knocked him down the first time but he got back up and leveled his rifle so they shot him again.

99% of the violence and shootings here are alcohol related, so I don’t mind the ban. Booze still flows into the communities, but at least the $500 the bootlegger charges for a bottle of rum slows things down.
