Its coming to the end of the river season here in Cali, and I have had some great times up here on the Toulumne River. I found myself looking through some good photos of spring time road tripping and wanted to share some of the good times. This spring the Tour de Suenos started itself off in Idaho and then headed west to the good old PNW. It was cold at times, always wet, great whitewater and new friends and hanging with old buddies along the way. The Toyota Tercel (AKA starship alfa) did a great job of taking at least 3 dirtbags from river to river and providing us with plenty of storage for all our wet gear. The trip was full of new training experiences, honing in all our crucial skills and getting ready for whatever came our way. Living the dream in the PNW with Kyle Smith, Will Long and Andrew Matthews

Lifestyle of the dirtbag in the PNW, constant fire for 3 days, beers and a disco. But all worthwhile for some good whitewater and for living your dreams with good friends.
