So we're off!

We worked on the boat and motorhome untill 4am and decided the heck with it lets just roll!

That lasted tell 5:30 when we got so tired we had to pull over and sleep for 2 hours! A short power nap and we're on the road! GPS promises we'll be in Las Vegas by 4pm, but its been known to lie in the past!

Come meet us on the water lets ride or meet us at the campground, land or water we want to see everyone! Got some shirts to give out thanks to John at Paw Prints in Redwood City a fellow wakeworld memeber who was the first person to write us and say he thought this was a awesome trip and he wanted to help. So come out for a set and get a free shirt! Is that cool or what!

We had allot of other sponsor who jumped on board to help make our trip possible, Golden Bear Fire Extingishers (if we or you catch on fire we have some trick Halon fire Extingishers), Liquid Acoustics (hooked it up with some new speakers and amps, crazy loud), Paul's Paint & Custom (did some beautiful fiberglass work, made a fiberglass tonua cover for the bow and painted it), Nice-Rack (Horacio hooked it up with all his tower accesories bling-bling), The Liquid Playground (Austin hooked it up with a helmet to protect Gary's dome, only a few brain cells left that are undamaged trying to protect them! Plus a bunch of stickers if anybody wants some), Go Pro (hooked us up with two HD Cameras and 100's of crazy mounts and housings so we'll be getting all sorts of great footage) Paw Prints ( John hooked it up in a big way with trip shirts that we'll be handing out for FREE to everyone that comes out to see us!) Tower Biminis (Jaime hooked it up with a gorgous bimini and a sleek cockpit cover, his is work is trick!)

If you want to ride or hang out hit us up on our cell phones its the best way to reach us! 408-804-0316 or 408-722-7188 or 408-710-8670

Tonight we'll me in Las Vegas partying like rock stars throughing an impromptu bachalor party for my buddy Seth. Come help us get him drunk and in trouble with his future wifey! lol

Tommorrow we'll be at Lake Powell! Our first lake of the trip!

Sunday its Utah Lake and Willard Bay

Visit our website for the complete trip itinerary and follow the social media links to follow us on twittter and facebook! Adding lots of stuff daily! In fact think I'll twitter a pic of the boat behind the motorhome right now!

Lets see Vegas, should have been the last stop not the first! Spent to much money at the casinos, heck dinner was $114 bucks! What happened to the good days of $1.99 prime rib dinners? Heck we didnt have any money left for the girls at the Cheetah club!

R M no shop or product just two guys living the dream!

So we just left Powell long drive in but we made it by 3pm went and got the end of the rail jam at antelope point. Hooked up with the winner Trent Poullin and went looking for some butter to shred! 3-4ft swells every where! About 1 hour before sunset we found a cove in warm creek and found some glass and watched Trent tear it up! We went out and tried to tear it up. Had some fun but no records made for us today! Just pulled the boat out of the water gonna have some dinner in Page and its off to the next Lake! Who we seeing in Utah Lake tomorrow or Willard Bay? Post some pics and maybe some video footage tonight too!

Stopped by Utah Lake yesterday and decided not to launch 3-5ft swells looked like an ocean! Worried we wouldn't find any good water!

Made it to Willard Bay and got lucky! Not only did we find good water we got to ride with Chase "McBadAss" lol Had a good time and got some nice sets in!

Sitting at the Brigham Ford dealer right now hoping to get this bad fan clutch repaired this morning! Plus its pouring down rain! Attaching a few pics!

On the road again! Had an 8 hour detour in Brigham Utah while the guys at McFarland Ford Hooked us up sneaking us in front of customers that had been waiting since thursday!

Gonna roll into Idaho Falls tonight and ride the snake river in the morning! Hopefully we can meet up with some locals there and then its off to Hebgen in MT and touring Yellowstone. We decided to skip American Falls because of time issuses.

Post some pics from the day a little later!

P.S. Scott we'd love to meet up with you in Elphant Butte and to anyone else if we're close come on out and take a set behind the boat. We're bribing people to come out with us with free swag! It doesn't get any better then that!

Been awhile since we updated so I gues I'll try getting everybody up to date and post some pics. So we visited Island Park Lake in Idaho where Gary went Polar Bear status and trunked it for a quick session. Then it was off to Hebgen Lake in Montana where we boated but both passed on riding because the lake was 5 feet deep and solid weeds. We then cruised through Yellowstone where we saw tons of wildlife and old faithfull plus a bunch of reeally pretty natural wonders. On the way out of Yellowstone we came across the beautiful Jackson Lake Wy. We then headed for Flaming Gorge. We didn't make it all the way there so we crashed in back of a gas station in the middle of the boons in wyoming. Today we woke up early and made it to Flaming Gorge where Gary says I had the best ride of my life, felt clean but I don't know if I would go that far. We are now camping in Fort Collins for the night and its Horsetooth in the AM then its off to Glendo in WY and then Minatare in Nebraska.

P.S. Gary is a terrible driver. I'm goofing off on line while he's driving down the road and next thing you know we're being pulled over by 2 cop cars! Turns out we blew a fuse and had no trailer lights! lol They take things serious out here! lol

Okay here are some pics!

I see you guys are heading across the FL panhandle on Saturday 9-11... You owe it to yourself to head down and ride in the Santa Rosa sound or in one of the bayous down here... Not to mention that Crab Island (party spot in Destin) should be going off. If you guys want to make a detour my crew and I would love to meet up and ride with ya'll. It's only about 30 minutes out of your way. Hell I probably owe you a few beers for hooking me up with my underwater LED's... Let me know if you guys want to swing down and I'll get you the info.

Jarod Lake Minatare was cool for a small lake if you want to camp on the shoreline but the water was all chopped out when we where there and there where no boats on the water. Its a really small and shallow lake.

Joe I think we're in florida on the 8th or 9th which ever one is a friday! lol Not sure what day today even is. lol

So I'll get everyone updated.

Spent a couple days in Nebraska for the wedding. Wedding was great even if I couldnt breath in my tux and I couldn't talk my buddy into letting be wear flip flops and boardshorts during the wedding.

We left after the reception around 10pm and hauled butt up to Mount Rushmore. Rolled into the black hills around 2am expecting to see the faces lit up but it turns up they only light them between 9-11pm and they don't open tell 8:30 in the morning. So at 2:30 in the morning we're driving around looking for a campground that isn't full on Labor Day weekend. Turns out everywhere was full and at 3am we rolled into a KOA that was full but they said we could camp in the back yard with no hook ups for free. So we saved a few bucks so that was good I suppose.

We woke up in the morning later then we wanted and rolled over to the Mount Rushmore park and saw all it had to offer in about 30 minutes. And then it was on the road in search of water! We found it when we came upoun the Missouri River. Water wasn't bad considering there where 100's of boats. We both threw down aa quick set and then it was on the road again.

We had hoped to boat in Iowa and Minnasota but because of time we skipped these two states and trucked down to Kansas City where we slept for the night in the Super Wal-Mart Parking lot we got there about 3am thanks to Gary napping during the day so he could drive later when I git to tired to drive.

Woke up this morning at 6am and started driving while Gary slept on our way to Powell to hit the party zone. When we arrived at noon I must say we where dissapointed. Choppy do good water to ride anywhere. We hooked up with a wakeboarder who swore the 2 foot chop was the best water on the lake. But there was always the party cove. Or was there? We rolled in to find about ten boats spread out loaded with gray haired men checking there stock reports and social security checks while lounging in there mini yachts. Turns out Labor Day nobody partys there I guess sunday is the party day even on a holiday weekend, So we left and headed west towards grand lake of the cherokees in oklahoma but on the way here we swerved north into kansas when we saw some butter water on the riverton. Unfortunatly after investigating the river we found the average water depth to be 2 feet with stumps everywhere so we passed and headed down to grand lake of the cherokees where I am typing away as I speak. Gonna board in the am around 7.

I'll post pics from the last couple days below!

Most recent update! We rode Bull Shoals in Arkansas, Grand Lake of the Cherokees in Oklahoma, and attempted to ride Riverton in Kansas but the average water depth of 2-3 feet scared us off not to mention the stumps sticking out of the water! And as luck would have it I hit the prop loading the boat on the trailer at Bull Shoals and threw my shoulder out riding at Grand Lake. I guess I'm still not ready to try 360's! lol I went for a 180 wake to wake and rotated a little too much if you can believe that! Sitting in our campground in Cape Guardo or something like that in Mo. right on the border of Illinois and Kentucky going to ride the Mississippi river right now then head down to Nashville to ride Old Hickory. I think I might have to sit today out being I cant lift my arm over my shoulder. I'll post some pics from yesterdays travels below.

So your not riding in Orlando then?

We will be riding in Orlando still we're just going to add a stop on the panhandle, the only time we skip or change a lake is if the lake isn't rideable or doesn't have acess to get on or if no one is meeting us there and through our travels we find a better lake close bye. Like today we where going to ride Old Hickory in Nashville but the two guys that where suppose to meet us couldn't make it and a fellow wakeboarder at the gas station told us to skip hickory and head over to J. Priest Parsley or something like that and that water was clearer and we saw two boats on the whole lake and it was butter like I haven't seen in along time. I'll post some pics from todays travels in a few after I download them. And if your planning on meeting up with us at a lake shoot me a pm or email or text with your info a number we can reach you at and the lake where we'll be seeing you so we can call when where getting close and cordinate. Sometimes I find people who say there going to meet up forgot and a day later and a state away we get a call. We want to hang out with everyone thats what this trip is about for us finding some nice water in cool locations and meeting some awesome folks off wakeworld.

Sarge, not much. I got hammered at the wedding but other than that nothing. We have a full keg of beer that has had maybe two beers out of it because we wanted it for Lake of the Ozarks and there was nobody there! So we need to meet up at some party spots to polish this thing off being me and gary are on the disabled list now. I have a pulled shoulder and gary has a strained knee.

Been flaking big time on posting pics need to get everbody caught up again. Promise I'll post pics this afternoon while we're driving to New Orleans. Heading to Fort Walton Beach right now to ride with Aaron and go to a party destination in Destin? Surf Expo was a blast met allot of cool people saw some new stuff that'll be banned from the lakes in no time! For example a hydrofoil you hang on to while being pulled by a boat at 10mph and can dive down a 100 feet. wonder how long tell that gets banned? lol Post pics in a few hours. Louisana riding tomorrow and then tsr on monday who's going to meet up?

So a sampling of the conversation as we pulled onto the 281 heading to the I-10 to New Orleans.

Gary "sh*t I just ran a red light"

Me "oh well didn't hit anybody"

Gary "but there was a cop right next to us"

Me " did they see?"

Gary " Yep they saw they're pulling us over!"

Thats right 26 states 30 plus lakes and we've already been pulled over twice! Lady was a complete sweet heart said you know what you did and why I pulled you over ran our licsenses and came back and said have a safe trip!

Aaron your cool and we had fun but Florida sucks! We didn't have to pay to drive down to orlando but we've hit 4 toll booths on the way home! This one was $10.50

Now I know why everybody in florida rolls single axle trailers. Its so they don't have to pay the toll on the extra axle! lol

I'm pretty sure we through close to $100 in your boat when you left so I'm sure you'll be fine... Now get to work on my drinking lights... LOL Hope you guys tore up Bourbon street.

Aaron thanks for the dough, I know we said no a hundred times and you wouldn't accept that. You knew about thoose toll highways! lol Thanks again for the great times, good riding, partying and eats!

Here's some pics to get everybody caught up on our travels.

First pic is from Kentucky Lake I think that was in.... Kentucky! lol
Great lake and we had great water to ride.

Second Photo is from J. Percy Preist in Nashville Tenn. this place was amazing good water and the lake was glass.

As sore and tore up as we where, kinda still are. I'll get to that. We headed straight down to Florida after Nashville.

Didn't take and pics at Surf Expo, just so excited to be in there and checking everything out we forgot! lol

Where we rode in Louisana

of course we had to break a few rules to get down to the launch ramp! lol


Riding at TSR Had fun playing on the cable and hitting our first rails. Was great comedic relief for everyone at TSR! Cable is really interesting because its so different then being pulled with a boat I have sore muscles in places I didn't know I had muscles and a few bruises to go with that. TSR tore us up but we had a blast. We weren't planning to stay as long as we did, but we didnt want to leave. We definatly need a cable park in the bay area. I got the land to put it on in South San Jose who wants to help me dig. I'll supply the shovels! lol
