After over a year of living the HI life, Socal in the winter was rather cold…that didn’t stop me from having a great time!In addition to quality family time, I also spent some time with some good friends.  R.K. Smith from Hot VWs Magazine invited me to their headquarters, which was home to countless gems like back issues and collectables to die cast and actual cars. Some other good friends are Royal Origin and company, who I got to hang with at their Living in Survival end of the year meet…which got rolled up by cops and moved to at least 3 different locations…after I got a jaywalking ticket…Anyways some photos…see more at the Royal Origin blog.And finally, more than just friends…the Fatlace family.  Thanks to Marc at the Illest LA store for your hospitality!I’ll end this post with the last sunset I enjoyed on this trip from the Griffith Observatory.
