i bought a Burton Backyard at a garage sale for $5...this was 1984. I lived in Peter's Twp Pennsylvania at the time. Other friends got into boarding too, we would ride the hills of the golf course that was thru the woods behind my house. Didn't think it was a big deal at the time, or that it would be the root of all that ive done, and many decisions i have made since. mainly about where i would go apon leaving home, where i would eventually live, etc...lots more to tell of my bizarre path to MT, but i'll save that to see if anyone else chimes in here...
