  1. I Remember: Sex and Beer in the Bus

  2. Canyonlands: Finalé

    Sunday morning we woke up before the butt crack of dawn. Time changed to daylight

    stuff and headed back to Kernville. We had breakfast at Cheryl’s Dine…

    It had just rained the entire night non stop and just about everything was wet.
    We quickly rolled up the tent and shoved all our stuff into the lone cargo van.

  4. Canyonlands: Water / Solo

    Continuing on from where I left off:
    Wednesday Alec woke me up a little early and we, along with some other guys,

    but we got the water. Just about everybody trie…

    While driving, our bus hit a tumbleweed, completely destroying it. Shortly

    into a gas station in Flagstaff and determi…
