State of Mine Episode 1 from JP Schlick on Vimeo.

Sometimes it’s all too tempting to cross the country, or even head towards a new country for a rad snowboard trip or vacation. Ashley Thornton had a different plan in mind. Born and raised in Oregon, Ashley realized she hasn’t truly explored this state of her own! Time to make a change. Living out of her camper truck with her boyfriend and also shred-head, Forrest Devore, the two tripped across the western state finding all different ski resorts to check off their list. One of their guidelines for their adventures is too stop commuting to resorts ran by corporations and give some loving to the more (and rare) mom and pop areas. And I would have to say they have definitely lucked out. Here is episode one, and keep looking for more to come! It will be the inspiration you need to get out on an exploration of your own!
