Help Our Friends To Indonesia!

Help my good friends from CBNC and TOLA get to Jakarta! Exerpt from TOLA's page :

To get to Jakarta! Marc Marino, Kelli Samuelson and I all have invites to go race Fixed Fest 2012 put on by Rocket Company in Jakarta on July 15th (we need to fly out July 10th). We are some of the few Americans invitied and the only two from Los Angeles (Marc is up in SF) to go race and we need your help to get our airfare over there. We want to get to Jakarta and bring home the win and with your help we will. Since we are all friends and Teammates, we though pooling our resources would be best. You guys are one of our resources (we are also seeking donations from sponsors as well). We are working on raffles with a few companies and other types of sponsorship, but we thought the good old fashioned “pass the hat” or “donation jar” on the counter would be a good idea as well. In this case the “hat” or “jar” is a paypal account (Jakartatrip2012@gmail.com) and the counter being the internet. Our Goal for airfare and other trip costs for all three of us is $8000 USD (this is for all three of us), it’s not that lofty of a goal and with your help we can reach it. Thank you.

Anything would help and it is welcomed. It’s a trip of a lifetime and we are trying our best to make it over there and kill it for you guys. Thanks in Advance from all three of us and stay tuned for those raffles, that I have mentioned.

MASH 1 Year Anniversary Race

Jason Whalen is part of Agency Charlie who shot the Mission Project not too long ago. I deeply respect what they did with interviewing local Mission companies so when I briefly met him during my hangover at the MASH race, it was nice to put a name to a face. He has some shots up on Flickr right now as well as Nick Kova who has some great action shots.

My Nikon Is Gone

Many of you might be wondering where my snapshots of Redbull and recent events are. I've been so distraught (yes, I can still party and be distraught) with it breaking that it's been hard to give my own perspective when I don't have my camera with it. 3 weeks ago, I was at Mandy's Mission Boat Party trying to snap a group shot off an 18 wheeler and my lovely Nikon D7000 fell off the front cab. The lense, the flash, and the body demolished. Until I save up enough for a new one, I can only borrow whose friend's cameras I can. If anyone out there has a Nikon discount, I would greatly appreciate it. I hope you all understand and thank you for your continued support!

Faz's LOW Pursuit

Faz from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia just built up this LOW beauty. He recently posted his parts list in Pedal Room and it definitely means business. I hope to snap some shots of this if I can make it to KL this year. Faz, second to your Kagero?? C'mon, buddy!
