When I was first invited to participate in Canoe Journey with the Lummi Nation Tribe I went home and quit two jobs on the spot. The next day I was in the canoe and so began a five hundred mile paddle from the Lummi shore in Washington State to Bella Bella, BC in Heiltsuk Nation.
This was one of the most important decisions I have ever made in my life.
Le Chat Noir
Anyone that has ever worked back of the house can relate.
That fancy restaurant that you love so much,
Ain't that fancy back here.
Hot Damn Scandal Tour
We crashed vans in snowstorms in the mountains of Colorado,
We snuck Pete into bars after the spotless jaws of Southern California snatched his wallett,
We sang karaoke to mass applause without crowds knowing most were veteran performers,
We slept in empty boiler rooms of mountain compounds vacant but not silent,
We played free pool on a broken table in that awful Grateful Dead bar,
We awoke earliest simply to go bowling,
When does the van leave next?
A Country Indisposable
We set out upon the road not knowing where we would go or for how long. The main concept was to see as many of the places across this country and all the land in between. Essentially we just needed to find a new place to live, and what better way than to drive 17,000 miles around the country for four and a half months?
Like all those wonderful American family road trips that have been immortalized through grainy super 8 and shaky VHS I decided to document the entire thing in the most simple form possible; disposable cameras.
