Van life

Here in the desert its just way to hot to me a pussy but the 100+ degree wind blasting your whole body, and the added heat of the engine beneath you is just hell. So lately Ive been driving my awesome 1979 dodge ram van around. Its a good reminder of how awesome old vans are.
Back home there was this sweet yellow thing that I would drive by all the time to see if it was for sale, it was parked in this same spot for a good year.

The other day my buddy from back home sent me a photo of it now. And holy shit does it rule!

Chetwynd was pretty cool today, nothin; like the smell of freshly carved wood.

Cougar on Cragars, trailer parks everywhere have the best cars

Livin' without internet at home, and my phone being on the fritz has made me realize how awesome real life is.
I can handle the lack of communication devices, I write a lot of letters anyhow, but I can't handle not having cable TV, if I'm not blogging for weeks at a time it's because I'm caught up watching TV.
I'm just not hip enough to hate that

I've been really making signs, for the man, and for my own pleasure. Bloggin' don't pay the bills, and isn't nearly as fun as building signs.

Amigo from work likes the dumb shit I come up with and puts in on his truck. Thanks Milo

Been workin' on some stuff for friends, this is a quick design for Wheeler's 
griptape endeavor, this is the prototype, fucked up, but got the colors right today, this is 
how it looks when I make shit, bad 10 second sketch to prototype.

It's fuckin' hot out! 
Sort of workin' on stuff, sort of just enjoying summer.

Philo Beddoe looks exactly like my uncle Gerald. 
It's pretty cool. He's definitely my coolest uncle too.

I'm not sure but McAfee says this site is sketchy? 
I assure you there is nothin' sketchy going on here...

I started painting this for Boots as a going away gift a year ago, but never did finish, then yesterday I found 
it again when I was looking for my tackle box, and there was some sand paper sitting on it, 
the rest is history as they say. I think it turned out alright, looks old, faux patina brooooo

Wasn't gonna garage sale this weekend cause I'm pretty broke til payday, but I'm sure glad I did. 
93 sporty seat, Mikuni carb, some weird Italian light and for me the holy grail 70s Canadiana helmet. 
I've tried to buy various ones I've seen from vintage stores and the like and they always want 100-200 bucks for them! I paid two bucks.

5&Dime was never strictly about choppers, its just a label I can do all the different stuff I like under, hell that was my very first post on the blog if anyone bothered to read it.
I just fuckin' like making my own stickers and shit, and stickers that say Michael Graham would look stupid.
Its a creative outlet, if you don't like that, thats no skin off my back.

"Bikes and cars, guns and guitars" 

That's definitely my life motto.
