The last time George Bolter checked in with us he was crammed into a small hotel room in Bethlehem, PA with four of his homies and riding trails every day. He just sent through this update to let us know how the remainder of the trip went down…
“After spending almost a month crammed in a tiny hotel room in Bethlehem we decided it was best to move on and see some more of the east coast before making the trip out to Pittsburgh. We rented a 12 seater van, lost the back seats and hit the road covering over 1400 miles, seeing and riding heaps of rad stuff and meeting heaps of rad people. Here’s a bunch of photos from the travels, enjoy!
Check out a bunch of photos after the jump with notes from George.

Chris Silva has a compulsion to document. If he’s not filming for our upcoming DVD he’ll be filming for another project. If not another project, he’ll be stacking clips for something in the future or just for himself. Every time he comes back from a trip he’ll send over a photo journal of stuff that he shot on his phone while he’s out enjoying himself. With suitable riding weather starting to come to a close in eastern Canada we caught up with Silva to talk about this past year, traveling, DVDs, web edits, cameras, his riding and the desire to document. Click below to read our interview with him.
