Last year was Thomas Trnka’s first time coming on our Skatesgiving trip. He hopped on board with his Hasselblad 2003FCW, Nikon FM2 & F100, Graflex, Canon 5DMII, & and an Olympus Stylus Infinity. Thomas is from Montreal, Quebec and he is an active member of DGM.
If you look closely you can see Brian Peck throwing a “sick as fuck” (middle finger + thumbs up) whilst driving the Comet van.
George Mackenzie dives into the oncoming lane with Pat Schep & Benjamin Dubreuil in hot pursuit.
Billy “Bones” Meiners always has a trick up his sleeve. This Portland local can crush a karaoke session like no other.
Pat Schep takes a solo run down one of North Carolina’s finest. “Schepatitus P” rides for Landyachtz & Bear .
Make sure you have real ways to have fun on those long drives. You can only count on your cell phone to run out of batteries.
If your planning on going to Skatopia, the only way in is with a 24 pack of pabst blue ribbon.

At dusk, the entire Skatesgiving team & most of the Boone, NC locals prepare to drop into “Borderland” before the night sets in.
Longtime Skatesgiving partakers Matt Kienzle & Pat Schep make it down one of North Carolina’s steepest runs.
It’s weird to think that we won’t all be piling into the Comet van this year…
Take advantage of the colors this thanksgiving. Don’t worry, we’re still going to North Carolina and we’ll be bringing back footage.
