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.

SAN GABRIEL OHV

I thought the only way to get the van ready for the Wet Hot Summer van show in Hollywood was to run her through the mud a few times. I got to Azuza canyon at 8am when they open and had the whole place to myself. Ran thru some mud holes, played in the sand, water crossings and even climed a little. The van ate it all up for breakfast. Pretty pumped that this all happened 2 hrs before show entrance.

SUSPENSION

Got the van back from the shop this weekend. The new leaf spings from Deaver are great, they give me about 3-4 more inches and a much better ride and leveled out the saggy ass end. The guys at Deaver were really great to work with and made adjustments to it after i got it back to make it just right for me. I also got some new Bilstein 5125 shocks and BFG ATs all arund to fill up the extra space, and my new Cibie fog lamp covers. Happy holidays van, i hope you like the gifts I gave you. Man that Jeep cherokee looks tiny next to the van, kinda wanna run it over.

JUNIPER RIDGE FIELD LAB

This morning while going to get my spare mounted, I saw this baby parked near my crib. Ive seen it posted on some outdoor blogs before so I rcognized it right away. I think its a quadravan with a turbo deisle thats been converted to take biofuels. 

These guys are cool, they truck out to the mountains and make fragrences using natural ingrdiants using an old whisky still. If your around los angles I think they have some stuff for sale at mowhawk general store or get it here from there website

SPORTS-MOBILE W/ SHOWER

Saw this really cool sportsmobile in the lot at work today. Looked really tough with the ARB bumper healthy llift and roof rack, had some nice feathers hanging from the rearview mirror and a neat shower made of PVC on the roof. Who dosent like a nice warm solar heated shower. I hope this van is still around when my suspension is done so i can park next to it and we can be buds.

Then I came accross the tank and the monster van that ive posted on here before just as web links. It was really cool to see in person and couldnt miss the monster from the road.

VANS AND THE PLACES THEY ARE

On my way to work this a.m. I stopped to take a picture of this rad sportsmobile. The thumbs up in the back window is none other than Joe Stevens having a cup of coffee in the back of his van. Joe's got a great body of work covering surviving custom and conversion vans of the west. His work has been posted on almost every van related website i've visited and was one of our earliest posts.

BERDOO DAY TRIP

Went up to San Bernardino Nat Forest again. This time took a 4WD only road deeper into the forest to reach a cool soak spot. Brought way too much beer and not enough water. No pics of the soak but it was really nice.
