MacCachren and McMillin Are Maestros of the CoC

Stardate 11109.10.  I have beamed down to a strange yet familiar planet that appears to be inhabited and led by an odd race of creatures that thrive on speed and dirt.  It is similar to Planet SF.250, the inhabitants consume massive amounts of silt, tacos, beer and whoops but there are far fewer people  and [...]

Working Conditions

A little clip of me working courtesy of Bryan Collins from the Laughlin Desert Challenge.  All that dirt gave my new 200-400 (its first race) a good break in.  Shooting off road racing is not for the faint of heart.  If you do it right your gear will get thrashed, you will be filthy and [...]

Vegas to Reno Part II

Vegas to Reno Part II About 7 years ago I drove from Tahoe to Phoenix on this same route and I have always remembered this “adult building” as it was a mobile home surrounded by freestanding roman columns.  While it always made me laugh I never had a photo of it so I had to [...]
