1500km+ for a … Ford

So a couple of weeks ago I got a phone call and all Karl said was “hey dude, what are you doing on the 26th” and all I replied with was “Where are we off to this time ?” The next day I call Johno, fill him in with the details being his profession is what it is and fast forward a few weeks and we’re on a plane to Regina, Saskatchewan. I would have taken pictures of the plane and shit but I packed completely wrong and my camera was not easily accessible. . newb mistake on my behalf.. haha. Anyways after spending 12 hours in a stupid air port and a 3 hour bus ride later we end up in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. hands down the most ghetto fucking place I’ve ever been to, people tell you Sask. sucks and then you come here while being a whopping -38C and it re assures you you never want to come back.  The dude with the 40ft Motorhome that Karl was purchasing met us at the greyhound station and after a few minutes of looking at it and a few surprises we sort of kind of agreed we were way to committed to fly back so we transferred it and started our trek back to Vancouver. And what an adventure it was. we started the trip freezing our asses off because of the outside coldness and none of the heat in the motor home works although later we found that the propane tank was empty and got the furnace fired up to get it all nice and toasty inside. After driving to Calgary it was time to swap drivers and I ended up passing out and woke up in Golden and what was suppose to be a 3 day trip quickly turned into a 48 hour trip of no fucking around. Johno took the wheel from Karl after driving through the sketchy pass parts and made our way to Kamloops and was in hard debate of what route to take from talking to a few locals to googling what was best we ended up missing the turn offs for the canyon road and the no.3 and made our way up the Coquihalla  and being the sketchy road everyone said it wasn’t even that bad, it ended up getting pretty bad towards the base near hope but we ended up making it with no defrost. it was Sketchy, fun, and would definitely do it again, I just hope next time we fly and pick up a vehicle it’s a bit warmer.. maybe down south.. but having a built in bathroom and furnace was a plus! haaha, where the hell will life take us next?

The speed of animals.

So to start my 3 week vacation I ended up going to see Blake @ Animal speed shop to go see what I can find. He mentioned they had a 69 fire bird in the field so I went wandering off and there it was… at least what was left of a ” car ”  although it was a complete wreck it was a cool optioned car and some of the parts were still salvageable. Animal typically only does c10s. 60-66 for that matter but occasionally they do a complete build on a car of some sort, or have to repair someone else’s fuck up. they’re rad dudes with an abundance of knowledge and would love to get a truck built by them one day DSC_0867DSC_0850DSC_0868DSC_0862DSC_0856DSC_0855DSC_0858DSC_0853DSC_0854DSC_0852DSC_0851DSC_0849

Party of Xmas Bcrwd rip.

I think I’ve been in the scene of bcrwd for about 8  years or so… I can still remember the first time dimoff showed up my house with Kiernan and Jason to go streeting. before I even knew what a 240 was, a single slammer was the way to roll and a welded diff was the only thing not stock.  Fast forward to now and it was the first time I’d actually attend a Bcrwd Christmas party! and I can say it is exactly what you’d think it would be. A bunch of grown up men with a 12 year old mind set that just love cars, fucking around, and acting like goofs. There was a way bigger turnout than anticipated which lead us to split the entire group throughout the restaurant but we still had a good time! afterwords led to some shinanigans and hanging out with a bunch of people I hadn’t seen in forever! Cheers to Ahras for the entire organization of the party and Goodvibes for all their local support!
