Pittsburg Trip



This is a little belated but on St. Patty's Day weekend, Derek, Funky and myself took a short trip to Pittsburg to skate and visit Derek's sister. At 11:00pm Friday night we jumped in my car and took off.



By 3:00am we were still 3 hours away, so we pulled in a parking lot off the highway, covered up the windows with blankets and tried to sleep. Couldn't sleep so I decided to teach Derek how to drive my sweet 5 speed so he could get us there. Little did Derek know, I get an extreme case of anxiety when other people are driving. I bitched at him the rest of the way when I woke up to him driving my radical car 85mph around a curve in fog so thick, you wouldn't be able to see the end of your pecker if you went out to take a leak.



Finally got to the house at 6:00am. and went to sleep.


Next two days we skated spots all over. Here are some benches Derek likes to grind.

Here are some banks I like to ollie

The second night we went to this Hookah bar called the Sphinx. There were a bunch of funny people sitting on cushions on the floor around tables smoking Hookah and drinking coffee. While we sat around there was this disturbing opera/techno band playing with Eminem on the spinning table, Jack Sparrow on the guitar and Oprah singing. It was f*cked up. I started to get an anxiety attack. It went away though once I convinced Funky to get a picture with Oprah.







Mexican Restaraunt



Derek found this on a bathroom stall while at a rest stop. Uncle Buck.
