in April 2010 all these turkey's linked up in NC for a skate trip of epic proportions
I tried to get the band back together for a winter trip to Arizona, but in the end, only Gabe & I made the trip.
And what a trip it turned out to be as Gabe approached his dirty 30. 

GABE full part - here
full trip video - here

I grabbed Gabe @5am & we were soaking at Holtville by 7am.

we met two of the Salvation Mountain cats

it was Gabe's 1st time
another 1st for Gabe - the Slab City DIY skatepark - fs tailblock

he did pay to play
neither of us had been to the El Mirage skatepark - Gabe lien to tail
Gabe picked the SLAP pin by Don Pendleton

starting off a 5 trick line at Peoria

Oscar Navarro & the Zflex team showed up - back boneless high to low
AZ local backside double flipping the tough spot at Beardsley Banks
Joe Hammeke orchestrating a possible ad?

Gabe won his dinner at Organic Shores with the melon over the channel
Mark Carroll took us on a hike to South Mountain where we saw 2 coyotes

Streetstyle in Tempe took place in that parking lot
next up was the Hole in the Rock

lunch at Green
me & Mark, Jaws&Dakota, Jonathan & Andrew from IN, Hammeke

Gabe boardslides & kicks into into hurricane at Tempe
Gabe took to van life like a true vagabond

long time pals AJ & Jens made the drive south to session with us!

slept in the desert, soaked at Holtville at dawn, skated Lakeside, & were eating at Pokez by 11am
Patricia is hoping to get all of us to Colorado for a mission in late summer.... I'm in!
