Dirty Doodle!

Check out the gnar puppy!

Mud season is getting a little old this year...

The Shpongletron Experience

Wow - where to begin on this one... So a year ago, I ran across this live video of Shpongle from back in the day. I was intrigued enough to check out their website, and disappointed to find out that they had not been touring for a while. One day this past spring, while perusing email, I ran across a listing for "The Shpongletron Experience" appearing at the Boulder Theater in April. A quick web search turned up the following on YouTube. Since the "experience" was the night after Microbreweries for the Environment featuring 'Head for the Hills', the decision was easy.

Behold, the Shpongletron!

The EYE!!

Frickin' Laser Beams!


Took this photo in Farmington, NM traffic last week. That guy paid money for that...

Charlie Sheen's Hork Nostril

I can't be the only one who noticed the *incredible* feature he has developed for himself. Seriously, the whirlwind this mad-machine could generate would suck the panties off a prostitute...

Gearing up for the Republican Primaries

Is it too early to get excited about the complete G.O.P shit show that is about to unfold this summer? I, for one, am completely stoked to see this go down. Just look at some of the fine personalities that will vie for a presidential bid...

Ahh - leading the pack with some early season PR antics, we have everybody's favorite boss, "The Donald".... Guess what, D?! That crap about Obama not being a US citizen has been beaten to death.... nice try, but You're fired!

She's special, isn't she? What a peach.

OK - no idea who did this, but serious props to the uncovering of the Michelle Bachmann / Bat-boy "separated at birth" photo. Maybe Trump should be checking this shit out...

Another fine shot of Ms. Bachmann....

And here we have everyone's *other* favorite Minnesotan, Gov. Tim Pawlenty, seen here looking very presidential holding a pinner pike...

And then there's our boy from Utah, Sen. Romney....

Great picture, man... What in the hell's about to go down here?

Newt Gingrich is pondering a run...

And, last but *certainly* not least, rumor has it that Sen. John McCain may throw his hat in the ring again....

Should be a BLAST! I can't wait!

Rare Cuddle Wolf Utah Sighting

A rare sighting of the elusive Cuddle Wolf near his lair in remote canyon country, Utah.

Arch Canyon. Utah 4WD Trip

Rolled out to Arch Canyon near Blanding, UT this weekend with our neighbors. The map claimed a 9 mile 4WD access road that travels up the wash. The entrance to Arch canyon is easily found and roughly 2 miles off of the pavement. Some water in the creek (April 2) but not enough to be an issue. The road is sandy, windy, and *NARROW*. Expect to pinstripe the paint on this one.

This is the top of the road where the BLM land and Manti-La Sal Forest intersect. The forest service does not permit vehicles beyond this point. There is one *very cool* campsite up here. There is not much established camping throughout the canyon. Being BLM land, leave-no-trace is permitted, but finding areas to pull vehicles clear of the road would be tricky.

Hank looking tough on the road. The road is sand and traverses the creek continually. Other than a mud hole at the bottom, and some tight dips where streams are crossed, it wasn't that bad of the drive. I was happy with the higher clearance that the 3.5" lift kit and 31's provided. There are a number of rock hazards that were much easier with the extra clearance.

Rock towers on the cliff face of the canyon.

Cathedral Arch

Porter cools off in the creek.

Corbet's Cruiser, Herman.

Angel Arch is a short hike from the end of the road.
