Odyssey dropped this picture of the trails setup for the Texas Toast Jam. These look soooo good. Can’t wait to see what goes down.
Ah, man, it’s killing me knowing that I can’t make it down to the Texas Toast Jam this weekend in Austin, Texas. I’ll be up here for the Journey’s Backyard BBQ in Minneapolis with a few of the Etnies crew, while everyone else is down south. Odyssey just dropped the schedule for each day. Take a look below…

Sadly, I won’t be able to make it to Taj’s Texas Toast Jam down in Austin, Texas next month since I’ve got a shoot with some of the Etnies crew for an event up here in Minnesota. However, there have been a ton of updates that you can check out here with basically all the info on where to stay, what to eat, etc. Also, registration for Pro Dirt has been opened up. You won’t want to miss this one if you can.
