Huge thanks to all the hard work Matt & Ryan put in to make this event possible, all the sponsers, pappy and harriets and all the freaks that drove from far and wide. Desert Generator was a huge success. Had a great time showing off our rig, checkin out others and mostly making new friends and hanging out with old ones alike. After a full day of van show it was time for some lip smacking fart fuelin BBQ from pappy and harrierts, a quick nap in the van and then a fun filled evening of all the great bands that played. It was so much fun and already looking forward to the next show. See ya all in the desert next year!
Nailz and I bought a new van recently, a 2001 E250 Sportsmobile. Its got the penthouse w/ bed, couch that converts to bed, fridge / freezer, stovetop, 17 gal water tank, awning and tons of other cool storage and stuff.
With a 3 day weekend we decided to camp out at Remington hot springs on the kern river. We took our time and drove from Los Angeles up to Mojave and stopped for some views in RedRock canyon. From There we hopped on 178 west to Lake Isabella. We spent the weekend camping, hiking and soaked a bit in the hotsprings
On our way home we detoured in california city and explored some of the sand roads and then headed home. Aside from the bad crowd it was a good trip, Had some nice hikes, ate well and got to test out our new rig. The SMB made camping so kushy. It drives really well im super stoked on it.
Captain heavy and I headed out to azuza canyon to shoot my chevy for the next issue of Rolling Heavy. The little baby boy has been bringing lots of rain so i was planning on lockin in 4 low and seeing how far i could sling mud till we got it stuck. Unfortunatly the OHV was closed cause the conditions were too trecherous or maybe it was just mating season for a protected frog or something. The gate keeper was kind enough to let us go play around on the obstical course so I could flex the suspension for the cameras. After that we headed up the canyon and crushed some coffee n breakfast at the camp williams cafe and talked with some miner who told us about all the nuggets out there. Make sure to read the whole story in the next issue of ROLLING HEAVY
Thizzler got his rig on the road! still a few loose ends but this prius crusher is out chewing up miles and turnt waay the fuck up. A full post with all specs coming soon but shiiiiiiit. Just drool with me.
Headed home from big sur the road was shut down for a bit because someone died in a crash. It was fucked up a bunch of shitbirds were too worried about getting back to their tivos to have the patience or heart to just wait for the corener to do his job. We got out and stretched our legs, enjoyed the view and thought a bit about life. This hippie van was here of course, it ran like shit but had lots of cool crystals and driftwood inside i bet.
My dude sharkEy is ditching his econoline. Hes started some nice interior work. Hes one of the few dudes i know whos so cool that a van isnt neccesary. My guess is hes going on a indefinate shirts off around the world tour. Level up and buy this dab den or continue the scrub lyfe.
Thanks again for a good time at the cha cha. Killer tunes good people and of course cramming the tiny parking lot to the gills with vans and bikes. the key to avoiding a hangover on Monday is to start drinking on Sunday at 3p so your hangover is over night. Party on dudes hope this isnt the last one. Saw some good familiar faces, drank some of cha chas bitchen bloody's, ate an infant sized burritto and slept like a baby. Good times.
A bunch of us headed for the drive-in for our great provider of van smut, the one and only, the king pueb-ah... CAPTAIN HEAVY'S BDAY. Happy birthday homie and thanks for introducing us to the drive-in here. Ive been to the drive-in when i was little but its a whole new ball game in the van. Cold beers in the icebox..check, pull out the bed and get comfey..check, 6hr smoked ribs..CHECK! good seeing van buddies and making new ones as always. Definatly going back for the next run of flicks
