Sorry i didn't get to update yesterday our crappy motel room didn't have wi-fi. So yesterday we woke up to an amazing day in Texas. The weather was great and the drive was easy minus Brian flat tire. We got to ride down the old rt. 66 and do a lot of shooting. We also ate at a saloon. We ended up making it all the way to Gallup, New Mexico right near the border of Arizona. Then this morning we drove to the Grand Canyon. The day started out with great weather and beautiful scenery. Then it got hot I mean 105 degrees hot. We ended up getting lost in the desert trying to find the Grand Canyon. We finally made it after almost dying of heat exhaustion. Once we got there it made it all better. The Grand Canyon is one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen. We were able to get really close to the edge and got to take a lot of pictures. After a really really long day we finally made to Flagstaff, Arizona. Tomorrow we'll be heading to Barstow, California. Then LA on friday!!!! Ok I'm so burnt out and really need sleep. I hope this blog made sense.

Brian and I woke up today in our sketchy motel room and opened the door to get slapped in the face with 100 degree heat. We then drove to Tulsa to have lunch with Trina Fimple, she treated us to a great mexican meal. Tulsa was so hot but it was really nice to be able to walk around and take pictures. A few hours later we made it into Texas. It was so beautiful there were lighting storms all around us and a really great sunset. Tomorrow we are going to the cadillac ranch and a bunch of other sites. We'll be staying in Albuquerque tomorrow night which is less than 300 miles so we should get to explore more. Till tomorrow over and out.

Wow another day loooong day. We drove another 500+ miles again today. Getting kind of exhausted. We are staying at shady motel in Fort Smith, Arkansas. Tomorrow we'll be traveling through Oklahoma and into Texas.
Driving through Tennessee was not much fun. We ran into traffic for the first time in our trip and it was about 95 degrees and very very muggy but once we got into to Arkansas we got a little rain which cooled it down to about 75. Arkansas was a really easy drive because it is super flat and full of farm land. It was the first place we were actually able to stop and take some pictures .

Hello from nashville! Brian and I drove over 500 miles today through Virginia and Tennessee. We are staying at Felicia's which has been great. We went to PF Changs to visit her friend Faith and got a ton of awesome chinese food. Then went swimming for a few hours. It was a great way to finish a long day of driving. Tomorrow we'll be going through RRkansas which should be as exciting as Tennessee. hopefully they'll have as many 100 ft crosses as Tennessee does. Till tomorrow over and out.

Yesterday was amazing. Nick and I walked all around New York all day which was rad because I was able to go to B&H and get a new lens! We went to some bar that served 32oz beers in styrofoam cups with lids and straws so you could walk around with them in the park. Then we hung out on his roof which had a beautiful view of all of ManhattenI left Brooklyn today at 7 to meet up with Brian in Jersey. I had a little car problems at first so we didn't get as far as we had originally thought we would but we made it down past harrisonburg virginia. We are staying at an awesome camp site with with all kinds of fun rednecks singing karaoke which was funny because they are sounded like Taylor.
Tomorrow we'll be on our way to Nashville to stay my good ol' buddy Felicia.

Hello all you east coast wankers!,
So you may be wondering about my title "PALS, PICTURES, AND POSES", well, it's not just because the words all start with "P" and end in "S" (except for and). It's because those are the three things you need to have a great day! I had a great today today, you know why? Yup, I had my 3 P's. Took all kinds of fucked up pics with my bros makin wierd poses. So it was a good day. Now I am in Nicolas' room listening to "rockabye baby: lullaby renditions of Led Zeppeling." Derek is swaying to the rhythm and staring at the floor.
Todays blog was written by know other than Mr. Nicolas Saucier Dube.

Thats all for now.
