Checking In: Jeff Ament

Well, we know what Stone is doing with his time off from touring with Pearl Jam.  We've even seen Mike and Ed pop up on the radar since the last tour ended.  How about Jeff?

Turns out, he has headed back to his hometown of Big Sandy, a town where the roads match the name, to construct a skate park.

Jeff told the Great Falls Tribune:

As small towns get smaller and smaller, I think it becomes more important for kids to have something to do outside of just school sports. My dad helped me build ramps, now I can give kids around here something else to do.
