In the summer of 2016, we tore through the United States at breakneck speed. From Chicago, to San Diego, and back again in just a few days, walls were sprayed, Lak cans were emptied, blackbooks were sketched in, and sleep was lost. With such a hectic schedule, there was no time for beers, no time for loosing passports, no time for dope Cuban sandwiches, no time for juice, no time for tamales, no time for disco beats, and certainly no time for fun. Ewok, Kems, Mast, and Vizie came along for the ride. Pose, Trav, Omens, Persue, Brisk, Deow, and Zoueh joined us at points along the way as we bounced like a pinball through Chicago, Los Angeles, Westminster, and San Diego (plus a little ‘accidental’ side step into Tijuana). That was just the first half of the trip.
