HI VANS

I just got back from a trip to Hawaii. There were tons of VW's and i saw a few old chevys but most the time i was just watching dolphins bone, eating shrimp and watching the sky pass bye. I did grab a pickture of this van out front the most delicious shrimp truck in Honolulu and old chevy rotting away in a shed up in the mountains.

THE VANDOLEROS - CAN YOU DIG IT?

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 & VANS

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.
