    Sit back and I'll give you a bit of a VFRW history lesson.

    A few years ago some of the more, erm, shall we say yakkity, members on VFRW started talking about getting together to ride and talk shit. The banter went on for days and finally a date was picked for what became known as Reggie's Roadhouse Roundup. But the name seemed too long so I just started calling it SLO which is the nickname for the county I live in and the town where I work (San Luis Obispo). Derstuka coined the name Reggie's Roadhouse Roundup obviously because he likes alliteration and because most participants just sack out in my floor or my yard (or my coffin). Anyway, he kept telling me that I needed to use the other name because SLO is misleading since most people think of the town San Luis Obispo and I live in Atascadero (about 15 mi North of SLO).

    So I decided to take his advice and revert to his original name, but I shortened it for the sake of typing to R3. So now we can all look 1337. those of you who don't know what that means, don't worry, it's no biggie.

    What's the point in this history lesson? well, the point is hype. The party is coming. If you haven't been, you might want to come. It's going to happen in May. The final details are not ironed out, but the t-shirts are designed, the recap video is edited, and the shit is about to get raw.

    It will not be on Memorial Day (or is it Labor Day) weekend again much to the chagrin of my wife due to traffic concerns of people traveling a goodly distance to get here.

    The video is about 8 minutes of pics and clips from past get togethers and of course not everyone can be seen. There were hundreds more pictures but I worked on it for a couple hours and got tired of trying to round them all up.

    So I used music from my friends band again. Why? Because he lets me use it for free and youtube bitches you out if you use music without copyright approval, and also because they are a good bunch of guys so if they get a little exposure and maybe someone besides the few of us who know them listen to them, then good.

    Standby for the video...probably later today...

    it's long gone. believe it or not, a guy bought it to live in rather than pay rent at a cheap motel. He even was moving his fiancee and baby into it. it was kinda sad but he was happy cause he said he'd finally be able to save up some money to get into something better. Terri saw it a month or two later in a parking lot down in south county.

    yeah, the old stuff from RHCP was a lot of their inspiration. I actually got to see them(Neighborhood Creep) open at a saloon out in the country near here for Snoop Dog. It was a good show. There was another band, too and they were more reggae so all kinds of music were represented. My friends band did kind of a compilation of 80s rap but using the bass guitar and drums instead of drum loops and DJs and it was pretty wild. I wish I had a recording of that.

    I'd love to see the Chili Peppers before they get too old. Aerosmith was a big let down for me. I waited too long to see them. I had wanted to see Kiss but now I think I'll just remember them the way they were in the 80s and 90s.

    I have requested days off already.
    I think i left my tent there last year. It's about yea high and square-ish...if you see it let me know.
    I wonder if I can squeeze an air mattress in my luggage this year?
    If not, I'll crash in the house somewhere.
