I'd only missed Alex & Underpass by a few hours in Eugene. And after spending the night at Umpqua, I learned the band had only made it to Redding that night. And they were taking it easy that morning. I kept the peddle to the metal with the hopes of chasing them down on I-5 before the peeled off for the bay area.
|sure enough about 20 miles before the split, I spotted them.|
|Dan was behind the wheel and it took him a minute to recognize me.|
|I think this shot could be a future album cover.|
We shared some stories and some food on the side of the freeway. And then....

|Christian & his father, Bill Miller - my longtime skate bro|
|met at the budget West Sac park, but soon moved it to ....|

|I rolled into Donut Farm @ 4am and slept til 7:30 and|
|grabbed a dozen to take to Ken & Jenn's|
|the bounty - to wake up the slumbering Underpass|

Within an hour, Ken & Jenn & the pups were on the road. And Underpass & I were in charge of the household for a few days.
