Trailer? I don't need no freaking trailer. I left for Branson, MO from Long Beach, CA to meet up with Nate. Here's just a few samplers of my ride out East.

Needles, CA


Petrified National Forest






Camping in Chaco Canyon

Good Luck Fellas

Good luck on your trip fellas. Nate, sorry I couldn't make it to the going away party. I got stuck in the storms up by Cape Fair and had a ton of people at the house. I'm sure you understand. It's going to be a great trip.......am certainly jealous.

Leaving Branson, MO.



Crossing the Mississippi!



Beale Street



We came back to Erin and Jason's at 4am so instead of waking them up we camped in their backyard. They thought homeless people had wandered into their yard, glad they didn't call the cops!



Slabbing out of Memphis!



Somewhere outside of Edgar Evans State Park which is where we camped last night. Beautiful!

Don't know if this is kosher, but..... this is for Jeremy! ARKANSAS! Yee-haw! Mods, if this is inappropriate feel free to remove it.

Currently getting rained on in Robbinsville, NC. Just finished riding the Tail of the Dragon. Nice ride for sure. Went to see Ken at Wheelers MC and he won't be able to change our tires out until tomorrow morning. So we're still trying to figure out whether we're going to camp or motel it tonight. Couple shots from today.

Lunch in Cookeville, TN. Great food, check it out



Leaving our mark!


Riding the tail bro!
