In contrast to previous posts, which perhaps two or three people reading this will know to exist, this one will be no more than a collection of images; and second-class images at that. No tongue-in-cheek sarcasm, no grammatical complexities, and few links to other distracting nonsense. These photos are left over from our cross-country trip, as was published in Skidmark Skate Mag in the current issue. There are still a few left, so go get one if you wanna see the good stuff! Due to having 9 dudes squeezed into 2 cars; plus camping gear, fishing rods, skating gear, photo and video gear and other assorted hoopla, I decided to pack light right form the get-go and simplified my photo setup as much as I reasonably could. Simplicity is liberating, but damn, I would have loved to have a 4x5 handy. This trip was amazing. It was everything I could have asked for, and I know we'll all remember it for a lifetime. 

Enough chit-chat. In loosely chronological order, here are the #CrossCountryGravy leftover photos.
