.DESERT CRAWL - INSIGHT'S SW TOUR (PART 2)
"One day before we were to leave for the desert, we made an $870 investment in the key to our adventure; a 1982 Chevy van.
With time to kill and very little mechanical experience, we braved problem after problem as we traveled with absolute excitement and anticipation for the open road.
Our mission was simple; make it to Phoenix in time for the Garage Artist event at Cowtown with local artist, JJ Horner, then proceed onto Tucson for a skate jam at Starr Skates all while having as much fun as possible on the way. It took us 3 days to make it to Phoenix and we got to camp in the desert and the snow, see the Grand Canyon, skate several parks and avoid getting eaten by vultures. The Phoenix portion of our trip was equally as fruitful; it was packed with nonstop skate missions and an epic art show. We were only in Tucson for a day, but we made the most of our minutes.
These are the times of our lives and we hope that you enjoy our memoirs in this blog; "Desert Crawl"'
