Mike basich was a snowboarding pioneer. but after hundreds of competitions that brought money and fame, he went in search of something different. ROCK MUSIC PLAYING Welcome. Thank you. It’s such a rush just to get up here. MUSIC PLAYING.
When did you first get into snowboarding? My mom was always looking for something different and fun for us to try out, so that’s how we discovered it. And the sport had no rules. And that’s where that kept us in it, because no one was telling us what to do. Oh! Ouch! From 7 to about 14 years old, I had epilepsy. And so being different than everyone else,.
You felt at home. that’s something my parents drove into me every day, saying it’s ok to be different. I just tackle things that way. MUSIC PLAYING Well, welcome. Wow. This is the inside.
It’s beautiful. how long did it take for you to build this place? It took me five years two and a half years to do all the rock work. I think I moved about 175 ton of rock. Every piece of cement was hand mixed, and gathered the water for it by hand, as well. God, it’s such a labor of love. You get to do fun things. This is actually a shower here. And it’s a seat in the daytime.
But you get to use it’s a bit camping style. no shower curtain, just out in the open. pouring water, sitting down. MUSIC PLAYING I’ve got a little oven, which the door’s from the junkyard. And bought a nice little fireplace, which is my cooking, heating water, warming the place. So that’s the central attention for the utilities.
Yeah. this is it. Where are you getting your water? Yeah, this is creek water, which I have two creeks on the property. Mike, where do you sleep? I’ve got the loft as my bedroom very different than anywhere else I’ve lived. I go to bed with the sun, and I wake up with it. I don’t feel like I’m trying to race time. In a city,.
You always feel like you’re on a rat race. and here, it feels like you’re in sync with what’s actually happening. So this was your dream. Since you were a little boy, you’ve been wanting to do this. This is my dream and reality, 40 acres to do whatever I want with. It’s really fun. MUSIC PLAYING Tell me when you first started getting into that competitive circuit.
Competitive circuit was right off the start. the world cup, traveled the world a bunch I’d be in a different country almost every weekend. Worked my body hard. I was making about $170,000 a year. Played it pretty smart. I bought my first house, 4,000 squarefoot house huge because I went for the American dream. I bought the big house and had a fancy car. It didn’t do anything different for me. It just took up time.
DIY Make Your Own EOS Lip Balm Recycle Old EOS Container
Hi guys it’s caitlyn, and i have like a really exciting tutorial for you. I have been wanting to do this for so long, I have tried so many trials and I finally found a way that I really like and I really want to share with you guys. And it is DIY eos’s. I have seen so many tutorials for this and I have never found one that I like and I think that the way I found how to do it is super cheap.
I didn’t have to spend any money i found this stuff around my house. I mean that could be different for some but I just love it and I want to show you close ups. This one was the first one that I made and it didn’t turn out as well as the one that I made today. But this is how the first one looks. I mean its still good but it’s not as good as this one. It just shows you that the more you practice the better this DIY will be. Because it doesn’t always turn out good the.
First time. you know? This is the second one and I think it looks exactly like a eos. I mean the consistency will vary depending on how much product you used or whatever, and it’s not going to be exactly like a eos. Eos’s are $3, I think thats a very affordable price. So if you want the real thing, $3 is a great price.
These aren’t going to match up to them, they’re not perfect. But it is a fun way and if you are feeling creative and you want to recycle and reuse the ones that you have already used up, this is a great DIY for you. So if you would like to see how to make your own eos continue to watch. For supplies you will need: A pan.
A glass container double sided tape saran wrap Petroleum Jelly or Vaseline an empty eos container crayons, this part is up to you. If you don’t want your eos to have a tint to it just use.
White. i wanted mine to have a little bit of pink in it though, so thats totally up to you. lighter and finally, some nail clippers and and pair of scissors. To start the DIY you want to clean out the rest of your product. I used a spoon, you can use whatever you have. You can use your fingers or paper towels.
Just get the product out as best you can. Then use the scissors to cut out this plastic divider. It just gets in the way of the eos and you want to get rid of it. and your kind of left with these plastic poky things that are sticking out and the scissors couldn’t get so you want to take your nail clippers and just get rid of those and cut as close as you can.
After that you want to go and wash it out with soap and water. The next step is to put water in your pan and put it on a medium heat. For your eos use about a scoop and a half of the Petrolum Jelly or Vaseline per eos container. That should be enough. For crayons I would actually recommend using a little bit more than what I showed in this clip.
