Salton Sea run AKA Slab City Riot
we rolled out early Saturday morning from Camarillo, headed for Culver City to meet up with a few people and then head for the Salton Sea and Slab City. I got a ticket about 15 minutes into the ride, but the rest was smooth sailing and pretty good riding. We stopped at the Salton Sea park to check out the view and trip out on the dead fish, it was actually much nicer than I expected it to be. Next stop was Bombay Beach, where I spied a bar called the Ski Inn. We stopped for Bloody Mary's and Fish Assholes, and then hit the road to Slab City, about a half hour south. The crew from Biltwell greeted us with free beer, we set up camp, ate some mystery meat burgers served by a toothless transvestite, and watched the bands. Cops hassled some dudes, including Jack for riding Sean's Taco minbike without a helmet or lights(daylight) and going too fast in a campground...but they let him go with a warning. Headed back to camp for more beer and Lil' Smokies by the fire, watched fireworks and met some of our neighbors. Slept great for an hour until the wind kicked up so hard I thought the tent was gonna blow away. A couple of our guys ended up injured doing stupid human tricks and had to head home in the truck.We stopped at Salvation Mountain for a few minutes and then it was a long ride home.....my favorite picture is of our friend Kimara double fisting fish assholes at the Ski Inn.
