Urban assault by the Armpit Crew:

After taking leave of their senses the intrepid armpit crew takes on the quest to find the lost land of Off Roadia in this urban wilderness. Throwing caution to the wind or fearless crew will go anywhere to find this land bravely facing restless natives, toxic muck sucking monsters and occasionally fall over for no apparent reason at all.

Caution all yea that enter here!!!

After many miles of rock hard asphalt dodging countless caged beasts our crew reaches the fabled land of Off Roadia. At first appearance a pleasant land of restful beauty and tranquility.

A little air time was had but no really good jump spots.


Hopefully this pile of ore will soon be Chevy’s, Chryslers and Fords.



Time for lunch and I think we should all wash our hands.

Remind me to NEVER, ever go through pictures at 3:00 AM after a few brews. I accidentally deleted over half of my shots, unfortunately some of the best ones.

Anyway, I will upload and add some later.

Dayum. Now that's what I'm talking about ! I love good grafitti art. Do I dare to venture as far as suggesting the race of the artists....

Thinking a white nerd painted Yoda and a black one did the 'sploitation work


Great stuff !
