So now that my hangover has finally started to subside, I can state officially that this was my favorite PALACE TO PULASKI to date. Every year this thing gets bigger and bigger, and this year was no exception. There were so many obstacles to overcome this year, and I'm glad that it all went down the way it did. I still don't know how I feel about getting calls from homeland security on my cell, but despite the legal hurdles we had to get over I think it was the biggest PALACE TO PULASKI to date. I don't have any official numbers yet, but I think it was well over 1,200-1,500 people skating. We have a blast doing this every year, and we truly couldn't do it without your support. Big thanks to all of our sponsors this year, KAYO, Huf, The Hundreds, Independent, Jon Wye, Spitfire, Girl Chocolate, Alien Workshop, Vans, & our boys at Rustico for hooking us up. The biggest thanks of all go out to you guys that came out and skated. I can't say it enough, we love doing this every year, and without you there wouldn't be a point. From everyone here at P5, Thank you for your continued support.
So, as you can imagine I was pretty busy running around this year, but when I wasn't yelling into a bullhorn, I managed to snap a few good photos. My lovely wife Kristen snapped a few of these as well, but check em out over at my FLICKR 

Keeping it moving, its time to unveil a project we've had in the works for quite some time...
