Loading up in sub-freezing temperatures with 25mph winds
Shane gives the camera some love
Apparently loading 5 bikes onto the rack was a bad idea. Rack broke off 10 minutes into the trip while going 70mph and got hit by an 18-wheeler. Bummed!
We somehow managed to escape with only a torched back wheel, a few frame dents and a roasted seat. Unreal!
Previous rain kept us from riding the ditches, but Lil Pat was still stoked
Nathan mid-360 bail off the ledge. His bike ended up diving like a submarine into the fountain and Talem’s fisheye got karate-chopped into oblivion.
Checking the wreck footage and damage after pulling the bike out of the fountain.
Shane’s glasses are ridiculous, as is T-Fred’s creepiness.
A typical hotel night. These fools brought a PS3 on the trip and played NBA 2K13 non-stop.
Full-on vacation mode. Getting comfortable while clips were being stacked.
The crew chilling while Nathan destroyed a ledge/rail setup.

"I moved to Nashville back in June in hopes of escaping the brutal winters of the Northeast, but found myself packed like a sardine in a rented mini van with Lil Pat, Shane Weston, Talem Cowart, Tyler Fredrick and Nathan Williams, driving 26hrs to Tempe, AZ to escape the Nashville winter. The trip seemed to be over before it began after complications, but the gang's high morale and good vibes got us to AZ, for a trip we would end up titling "Funpalooza". Thanks to Eric Bahlman/Adam Banton/Lahsaan Kobza/Bobby Kanode and the rest of the locals that showed us a good time and to Nathan's dad for getting the rental straightened out. Funpalooza!"
