He threw me a number that was way over what I was thinking so I said count me in! So I should be heading off to BC Canada within the next few hours. I'm pumped! Gonna be an interesting car ride with this old man.

Ya know the difference between a young man and an old man?
Time. That's it. Obviously there are physical differences but inside is just time spent living.

As an old man myself I'd encourage you to listen to his stories, ask questions. I'm betting he can tell you some interesting things. And he'll get something out of your stories too.

Hope y'all have a safe trip!

In for pics lol

Totally agree brotha! Lots to learn from From the older generations. Lots of the older folk come up and talk to me when I'm on my bike at gas stations and what not. Mostly to tell me about their old riding days, the excitement they have just reliving their moto days is awesome.

For sure man! Just had my interviews today, it's either that or cooking in a fine dining restaurant. Really leaning towards the cooking right now though!

Well! Been a minute since my last update, Canada didn't go as smoothly as planned. Canada didn't even happen!

So- It was David (the old guy) and his two kids who were 9 and 13.They were pretty cool but literally the whole time one of em had to have the window completely down. I couldn't figure it out and it really annoyed me lol. It was a 22 hour drive to Canada and I started it out with a 14 hour treck. I let david take the wheel for a few hours while I slept and then hopped back on it. It was rough! So as were approaching Washington his Ex-wife gives him a ring and I could tell it was problematic. So long story short kids and David end up hopping on a plane to get back to Taos asap. This was a serious motivation killer, but it is what it is really. He pretty much said do whatever I want and make it back as slowly as I please, so the car was mine for the time being. David gave me some extra cash for a hotel for the night so I booked it and went to do a little exploring. Spokane, Washington was a pretty cool city. This nice river ran through it which I thought was cool, walked around and drank on some of the local brews there. Not bad- but nothing on that Texas craft. Passed out hard that night and woke up around 12 and started my journey back to Taos!

No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean

I have a few buddies traveling right now and making their rounds, I called em to see where they were at and they were just chilling at a buds that I have in Denver. They said that there was a fat bowl waiting on me if I decided to swing through. So that was a yes Plus I wanted to hang out with my buds and relax for a few days. I drove around 9 hours the first day and ended up passing out in Wyoming at a rest area. Woke up and continued the drive onward, by this point my tailbone is bruised as and I'm getting a little aggravated from being in a car for 4 days. So I finally arrived and they were true to their word! I have a bunch of movies on my laptop so we put Despicable Me on and got baked all night on some awesome medical buds and oils. When in Colorado right? That was nice but there is much more to Colorado than good buds, so we woke up and headed up to Rocky Mountain National Park for a day or exploring and camping. With our good buds..
I think the shot below was right around 12,000 feet. Such a beautiful park, unfortunately my phone died before three majestic elk walked out in front of us. Was such a surreal moment being next to these amazing animals. Have never seen one so that was pretty cool for me. We camped, hung out and watched the meteor shower that was going on. Amazing night for sure.
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
So we woke up and headed out, we got to talking on the way home and though you know what would be funny as ? Casa Bonita- if your a fan of South Park you know what im talking about. Sadly we walked in and pretty much walked right back out, meals were like 15$ and not a vegetarian option on the menu. Ive also heard the food sucks either way. But yes- this is the infamous "Casa Bonita" that Eric Cartmen loves so much.
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
We got back home and resumed our nightly activities. I was just sitting there thinking and thought of something I would really love to do. Hit as many baseball parks as I can along the journey. I played baseball pretty much my whole life and got to experience countless numbers of games in the Astrodome with my pops. So I have soft spot for baseball. Turned out the Rockies were playing the next night so I said ya! Coors field was pretty nice, I really enjoyed the whole open stadium concept. Minute Maid opens up but its not really the same feel. Highlight of the night- my buddies picked up one of the Australians we met in Marfa and let him tag along on their journey. So he had never been to a ball game before and I brought him along. I told him we have to eat some peanuts and cracker jacks, its the most American thing you can do! I bought some peanuts and the peanut guy tossed em from the isle and I let my buddy catch em. I always used to love that. So we break the bag open and "cheers" with his first ballpark peanut. The dude just takes 2 and throws em in his mouth shell and all, hes apparently never eaten a peanut out of a shell before muahaha. I had quite the laugh watching him not enjoy them and spit em out. We didn't get a win but its hard to have a bad time at the ballpark drinking on some beer. So it was all good.

So ya Denver treated me well! Was nice relaxing and getting to catch up with the buddies but Taos was calling me back so I got one more night of sleep then woke up the next morning and finished off the drive back. Arrived around sunset and just had to pull over and soak in all the beauty Taos has to offer.
IMG 20150815 200001
So ya ive been back for a few days now resuming my normal activities, we have an Hoarno oven building workshop going on right now so ill have some before and after pictures after we are done with that. Making a pizza from scratch tonight in the oven that was already on the land. So im about to throw down in the kitchen for all the hungry hungry hippies living here right now. Gonna be good Later people, stay groovy.

FAntastic update. If you have time for a couple questions I have I'd appreciate it.

So where was your bike while you went (tried) to Canada? If I read correctly, you were on a bike at one time and then some old guy asked you to drive him & his 2 kids to Canada. Didn't make the whole trip, he and kids had to fly back home and he gave you his car to bring back whenever you can. So where's your bike?

Also, Do you know the name of the free campsite app? I've been looking for one myself and would appreciate a recommendation. No hurry. Just when you get the chance. I know you're traveling.

awesome thread.

awesome thread.
Left the bike chained up at the farm where I'm staying right now, I felt it was safe here. Was nice getting back and seeing my baby again, I sure did miss her!

And I just typed in free campsites in my app store, I'm on android so I don't know if it would be the same for you but the icon is a little blue oldschool trailer with a crescent moon and some stars. There's a few apps and I've found this one works the best. It's called free campsites.

Appreciate you reading brotha.

Pigfarmer wins my thread for the day. That hilarious, sorry I couldn't pull through for ya!

Sucks you didn't make it to Canada, hope the old man will pull through... if he is old school hippie, he'll find another wet hole in no time!

I had a buddy who lived in Washington for a while... they use to dive for scallops and other edible sea creatures. Also, there are some pretty awesome trails out there... next time you ought to see about renting a mountain bike and hitting up a good guide to take you down some badass bike trails.

My brother lives in Golden Colorado and I have visited only once, but that place is beautiful! Glad you had the chance to attend a ball game there and you had favorable weather.

Keep up the updates! Man I wish I could smoke again! So jealous!

Hahaha ya I don't doubt he will. That's one thing I have really been wanting to do. Shredding down a mountain on a bike would be a blast. Ripping a wooden burm would be sweet! I definitely will check it out when I have the time. One day brotha, that toke will be the sweetest toke you ever took!

So we finished the Horno today. Its been almost a week long process but were done! Learned a lot and feel confident I could build one by myself. Maybe not one of this size tho, the thing is massive. I think we could bake like 40 loafs of bread in this bad boy.

First we made a ton of trapezoid and huge rectangle shaped bricks out of a mold we built. Pretty simple, just a little caliche straw and water then let em dry for two days in the mold. Cut em out and voila! You have your brick. Next we made the base, we gathered a bunch of lava rock from the mountain and used mortar to hold it together. Filled the inside with more rock and mud till we got to the top. Then used our caliche mixture to smooth out for the baking surface and let set for a day. Had to re-smooth today because we were working a lot on the inside as we went up.
No turn unstoned. Tales from The Bean
IMG 20150821 144557
And the finished product here, the first couple of layers we used the big brick
to start the base, then moved onto the trapezoids to start the dome structure. Pretty much just use more caliche mixture to bind them together. Throw a door and vent in there then smooth out the outside and you have your Horno. Was a fun project, im ready to build my own!

Ahem.....sorry, just curious, because I'd hit it. Are the rest of the people in that pic doing the same thing you are or do they live there? I'm curious about this nomad culture, I had no idea it exsisted.
