24 hours of solo.

So I was bugging Maegan Thursday about finding a nice boy to take her out on a date and she was all like ” nahh gotta take yourself out every once in a while ” and I kind of jokingly said ” Well do I have to come over there and take you out for dinner, Go take my old truck out and have a nice picnic ” ( as Valentines day was Friday and i’m the furthest away from supporting it but eh ) and she replied ” well i’m pretty busy Friday with work, and then hosting an anti valentines day party and you should come!  and then we can go exploring on Saturday ” so needless to say. after work Friday I packed my bag, jumped on the ferry and made my ways to Vancouver island!

I tell ya. These are the situations I live for. Random adventures.  Take the signs the universe presents you and take advantage of them in the most positive way you can. I had an entire plan for this weekend but sometimes you have to say fuck it, and do some you. It was a much needed 24 hour trip that was full of excitement, laughter, good times and full of great people and im so So glad these opportunities arise!

Vacation of California

I had this idea of going down to California for winter as I really enjoy eating and they always have great food there so!  In late November I kind of mentioned to Johno saying fuck this Rain we should spend new years in California again as we both had the time off and he said fuck yeah, and I ran it past Riley and he said why not and James was like eh, it’s only a few days to take off considering all the stats in between so why the fuck not. so on December 26 we heading out for our California Vacation. kind of wanted to B line it to San Francisco but had to go shopping in Oregon for that TAX FREEE GOLD yo, so kind of took a bit longer to get down and wasted some time but who cares because we were on Vacation! eventually lead to san Fran then all the way down to Bakersfield where we fucking found snow, like what the absolute fuck. there was a shit ton to and I was NOT IMPRESSED to say the fucking least hahahah, so slept in some ghetto hotel there and got the fuck out of there in the morning to then get to Santa Cruz which is a fucking great place to go to if you ever hit the coast, we went to my absolute FAVORITE Mexican restaurant in the entire world which i totes forgot to snap a photo of considering the weird place it is and then we made it somewhere else and did a shit load of driving and ended up in Barstow fucking California for new years because all the hotels went from 120$ a night to 400$…  which was hands down the shittiest place i’ve ever been to but met some people, heard some crazy stories, played some shitty fucking arcade bitch ass darts, p.s never fucking even attempt. if they don’t have a real dart board. get the fuck out of there. lmao hahhaa,  got a phone call around 10 i’d say asking where were we heading tomorrow and I was like uhhh north ? he said stop by Grange Motorsports park as it’s near you guys  and we’re already on our way! so Gladly stopped by there and spent way to much time there and completely put everything else off track but it was well worth it! met some great people, seen some unbelievable drifting and had a Grande ol’ time! haha, made our way through the mountains and then went to the lava caves in southern Oregon and made our way back a day early because we had so much motivation to fix our own stuff! hahaha, _RC21210_RC21186_RC21187_RC21205_RC21221_RC21228_RC21229_RC21240_RC21230_RC21196_RC21183_RC21188_RC21220_RC21216_RC21159_RC21253_RC21252_RC21251_RC21250_RC21258_RC21245_RC21266_RC21314_RC21311_RC21294_RC21290_RC21306_RC21293_RC21326_RC21327_RC21348_RC21366_RC21363_RC21362_RC21357_RC21320_RC21385_RC21371_RC21393_RC21394_RC21412_RC21427_RC21421_RC21407_RC21399_RC21431_RC21449_RC21459_RC21511_RC21509_RC21482_RC21514_RC21532_RC21527_RC21519_RC21548_RC21545_RC21625_RC21546_RC21644_RC21646_RC21642_RC21724_RC21823_RC21827_RC21911_RC21930_RC22053_RC22036_RC22022_RC21961_RC21948_RC21943_RC22275_RC22272_RC22290_RC22287_RC22288_RC22263_RC22311_RC22306_RC22305_RC22302_RC22308_RC22318_RC22321

blake doing things blake does

so a few weeks ago Blake messaged me asking if I could help him for a couple days to swap his Monte Carlo body onto his built Cutlass frame and mentioned I was off from the 19th of december to Jan 6th and said I could help in the earlier portion of the time off as I was going on vacation afterwords so there I went spending my vacation swapping bodies! haha we got quite far, got the monte to the shop, cutlass body off and a few other things before I had to leave but he got it done by Jan 4th! super proud of him and stoked!

noon high scrambled eggs

so this morning I really woke up on the wrong side of the bed, although I technically can only wake up on one side, the lack of sleep was real! I was not a happy camper even after I ate… BUUUTTT even when you’re not feeling well you STILL have to drag yourself out and do things! because it will be soooo worth it! like my day today. started off shit but still smiled by the end of it, and that’s something you have to constantly remind yourself through life. a little effort goes a long way! just have to push yourself! it’s worth it BUUUT now for the scrambled eggs hahaha, I REALLY THOUGHT I took more photos of people riding buuut I guess I failed and that’s why I don’t shooot for national geographic. but here are some photos of the high noon scramble!

for the love of friends

So last week was quite the week for me, it was tough in all places and I just wasn’t having any of it. from being way to overbooked of just buying a place and renovating it to setting up shop, trying to fix shit, and a whole bunch of other stuff on my plate that I was just WAY TO FULL to digest I kind of broke down and just had enough of it and couldn’t human and I was talking to Johno about it and he was like ill be at your place at 6, i’m like for what..? he replied ” just make sure you have your passport ” so i’m in my room kinda depressed and sad and Johno comes by drags my down ass out and we head south to ” get some parts ” shortly after the boarder I fall asleep and we wake up in a town just outside of Portland saying the parts are down here and we go to sleep for the night. i’m still kinda in like eh, I have lots of places to be, lots to do but wouldn’t want to be anywhere else. So we wake up, go for coffee and head to this Van meet where eventually leads us to an hour and a half drive up a mountain to this van camp that the groups at, where I unfortunately didn’t take any photos haha but oh well. this isn’t the first time this has happened and it certainly won’t be the last but i’m so grateful to have friends like this that will go out of their way to get you out of your misery even if they know that you have other priorities and obligations to make, they just know whats best at times and he sure knew I needed a getaway as this week I feel a million times better!

hope yall are doin good! I’ll try to write more but eh, heres some photoosss

river of powell unfound.

well what can I say. this weekend was a well needed rest weekend as man, so much stuff has happened and I can’t express the amount of getaway I didn’t know I needed. having always gallivanting this was the first while where I hadn’t been on a vacation for more than a few months.. as you know me I tend to take more than 3 months off a year and well life has changed and due to other things i’ve been working my ass off for things to be said in the future! will be worth it,

but this weekend jordan and nate organised kind of an overnight getaway to powell river and what a beautiful trip. the people, the ride, the times. man. everything was great. it felt as if I were in california but we were only a few miles from home. i’m pretty sure the pictures will speak for themselves but hope yall had as much fun as I did! DSC_5043DSC_4776DSC_4813DSC_4849DSC_4861DSC_4883DSC_4795DSC_4886DSC_4857DSC_4851DSC_4894DSC_4965DSC_4910DSC_5014DSC_4984DSC_5015DSC_4962DSC_5027DSC_4938DSC_4960DSC_4970DSC_5048DSC_5029DSC_5050DSC_5034DSC_5052DSC_5057DSC_5093DSC_5063DSC_5073DSC_5074DSC_5058

mission of drifting.

well, it was the second or third time there was drifting at mission raceway park and man do I believe it was a success. without any expectations or knowing what was going on.. Riley and I ventured off to .. fucking mission ass farm land far far away to eventually hearing tires getting destroyed. we entered the raceway and man was I surprised. Lots of people, Lots of cars, and lots of seat time! I’m pretty stoked it’s summertime and fun things are happening again!

 

until next time bloooggg! _RC28416_RC28415_RC28409_RC28375_RC28308_RC28296_RC28288_RC28277_RC28267_RC28256_RC28255_RC28248_RC28243_RC28237_RC28234_RC28207_RC28204_RC28199_RC28195_RC28192_RC28186_RC28168
