The Vandoleros are some good dudes and a solid club. I first met them at the council of councils in 2009 and its always a blast to see them at eVANts or out at the bars. Heres a good insight and honest look into the club. These guys are an allstar team the video is pretty modest wich I like and focuses on their passion for vanning. Most of these dudes are really fucking good artists, builders and musicians working and contributing heavily to the van and bike scene. Most of all there a good time and as fun to be around as it looks in the video. Just dont pass out around them
Can you dig it?
Dirt bikes and vans are like tits and ass. Both are great on there own but.. together its just as good as it gets. Ive been hauling my dirt bike to the deserts forests and just about any campsite i can ride since I've had my van. Its the best feeling after a day out in the dust or dodging trees in the mountains to drop your kickstand and pull a coors outta the icebox and "watch the world go by." You,ve got a comfy place to relax, sleep a while and make some food then muster up some energy for that ride later on. After you've busted a lever or managed a flat you've got all your tools and a nice little place to get outta the sun between wrenches and rides.
If you havent already gotten your grimey paws on CV no. 7 git it! its full of good shit as usual and yours truely got 4 pages and was also asked to put together a trucking mix too. Matchstick is a fucking vanning god, what he and captain heavy are doing for vanning is great.. its beyond great. So much time and effort these dudes put into vanning, I can barley keep up with this dumb blog. The print, events, merch and culture these guys are contributing is much appreciated. Matchstick is a super cool cat and im honered to be a part of vannings new history books. Thank you dude, hammer fucking down buddy 2%

I got hitched last september. My first look at my babe wife was revealed by the sliding door of my 76 chevy. Our friends decorated the van and buddy Justin Teodoro painted the windows. It was an amazing weekend only to be followed by a radical lifetime with the best passanger I could ever ask for. I really am a lucky guy to have not only a smokin wife but one who loves adventures in the van and understands all the time it takes to maintain one. Weve travled over 4,000 miles together on a single road trip. We load the ice box with beer for weekend getaways in the mountains, desert and beaches surrounding LA and everytime more great memories are created. I couldnt ask for a better woman. Our amazing friends The Modern Obscura shot these pictures for us in the "Hitched" gallery
about 2 months ago I purged one of my most favorite vans ever...RATCHET...been kinda of emotional about the decision. happy it got a great home and able to stay updated on it's new home and family(see below)
Will be posting more of the pictures I took of it before it was sold soon as I get my head out of my ass. And now on the lookout for a dodge or delica with great vibes to pillage in next.
Saturday night 8pm in Los Angeles and our apt has no AC, its like a pizza oven in this summer heat. My girl suggests we go sleep in Angeles Forest. We packed up dinner, grabbed a bundle of wood and some beer and headed up Angels Crest highway. We found an open campsite and got a fire going and ate dinner then spent the rest of the night drinking beers, star gazing and just having a good time together.
Waking up when you arrive to a camp site in the dark is always exciteing. Along our road trip to chicago we rollied into a lot of camprounds late at night. When we would wake up we were blown away having no expectation or even refrence of what youd see, its a great feeling. After enjoying alittle sunrise and nature noises we made our way back home stopping to chack out a little bit of the rincon trail along the way. It was a great night with my main squeeze, I am one lucky guy. Queue Sammy Johns "Chevy Van"
