When the media asked about dipping the wheels in the water... "On May 14, Brandon and I dipped our wheels in the Atlantic Ocean together, and when our wheels are dipped in the Pacific, it'll be together."

Next spring he'll be ready, we'll complete the last leg and dip those wheels together in the Pacific That'll mark another astounding achievement of winning 2 epic challenges - winning the fight for life, and completing the journey of a lifetime.

After the incredible support from the longboard community, from our new friends and family everywhere, from our partners everywhere, from donors everywhere... we're incredibly grateful for you all!! Looking forward to an even more phenomenal next chapter!!! Be part of it in 2014!!! Ride with us, raise pledges, volunteer... there is so much we can do together!!

Long For Life, this coast-to-coast trek, this challenge has been the most amazing challenge of our lives. Our messages of conquering the challenges of cancer and stroke couldn't be more applicable than they are right now, and we need you and your love right now.

Earlier today (September 7, 2013) Brandon experienced another great challenge and he needs all the help and love that you have. He's currently in intensive care after another brain aneurysm caused a paralyzing stroke. He's alive, unconscious, stable, sedated, and fighting with everything he's got.

What we do know... is we all move forward as we all must with the faith and belief that he'll win, without worry as that's not serving him through his battle, and that a greater purpose needs finishing. And he'll do just that, because that's what he does.

We need your thoughts, love and prayers. And with that, we KNOW that he'll wake, that he'll heal swiftly, and we'll all finish this together.

And here come the big ones. Heading out of Canmore, into Banff...

Couldn't create a more perfect day!

We knew they were coming... And here they are...

Rayne Demonseeds to ride to the finish line!!!

With 4000 kilometers covered... long flats, giant hills, lots of rain, great sunshine, riding and living with the elements and the night firepits...

Our gear has been put though some harsh tests. So grateful to have been carried this far and kicked through everything in our way. With 2400 kms to go and much more extreme on the way, yuge thanks to Rayne for the decks to see us through to the finish!!! Thanks to Aaron Enevoldsen at Rayne, thanks to Royal Boardshop in Calgary, and to Paul Kent for believing in us. (Best of luck for a Rogue 6-peat, Paul!!).

Brandon was jacked when, after a long hard push day, we got to this sign at what he thought was our destination...only to find that it was still 20kms outside of town lol!
