Photos: Summer Of 67 Free Love & Elysian Park 2005

Recommended Posts

DO NOT POST YOUR PHOTOS IN THE TOPIC PLEASE! THANK YOU...

 

Where does one start? The summer of 67 was about FREE LOVE and PEACE. Well, 2005 @ Gonzo's 4th Annual Elysian Park BBQ Jam was nothing more than a replication of that summer back then. Although, I was not present for 67', I have seen Woodstock and I have see Elysian Park, and the love was flowing like you would not believe...!

 

First and foremost, I would like to thank PAUL AKA "GONZO" GONZALEZ and his family for the most stunning event ever....!

 

This year, I have witnessed the most unreal generosity I have ever seen in my life...!

 

I would like to start my list of folks to appreciate with PandaProAM420, I picked up Drew on Thurs and we hung for the better half of the afternoon at the awesome Sea Sprite beach house in Hermosa Beach, Ca. The place was on fire! Drew is one of the coolest, most spectacular cats out there! We had a great lunch @ the Goose (nudie bar) and kicked the day off proper down in HB!

 

He helped me out tremendously and never asked why and or for what...he just GOT'ER DONE! BIG UPS to my homie DREW.... "Thannnnnkkkssssks..SOOOOON..!" Have a great day this Sat..! Big day coming up for Drew and his lady!

 

Next, I would like to thank Willnois and George "CG6669!" These two guys could hold up the weight of the world standing side by side. Two, brothers in arms

 

and the nicest guys I have ever met! They are comic duo (George anyways..) and they function as a team spreading laughter wherever they go! You guys made my

 

weekend and really took care of me. For that, I am indebted to you...! Thank you so much!

 

Jeff "Cruiserking" Mattox and Carbizguy....Two brothers (their adopted bro's) that made the whole trip possible. Cruiserking along with Seadooit presented me the best gift ever! A signed THANK YOU placard by many many folks and all outside of my view. I never saw anyone sign it that day and yet there were a

 

million sigs on it! Thank you so much Cruiserking! Your the hottest! PS - I have it! I did not lose track of it! Carbizguy racked the trailer that scooted

 

our big $$$ rigs to the show! Aside from the partial shutdown of the 110FWY @ 7:00am Sat morning...WE MADE IT!! Thanks Lionel and Chris his wife and the

 

kids..! You guys rock!

 

Additional appreciatioan must be extended to the following souls:

Ryoung, and the Sacramento B newspaper, Demitiri (Cream magazine) the guy took pro studio photos all day long of all kinds of BMX porn! 3rdgear (and so once again, my dear Brett..my dear friend, and so once again, you are fighting a soul...and then I ask you why, you raise your sticks and cry and I fall, Oh my friend how did you come, to trade Patterson for the OM..)he knows what I mean. for the shirts, Ramon and his lovely wife for taking care of my gear! Scot "OM" Breithaupt and Jamie, Eddie Fiola, The Utterbacks' (love Pamita!) ROSBMX and Taylor, Lionel and Chris Eden, MOM and their crazy kids, 26incher (for showing us how to effectively save money, BASTARD...!), Jeff and Vanessa Norton family for OS-BMX.COM.., along with Nikon USA in Torrance, CA and Dave Lucas for providing water for everyone!! You guys rock! and EVERYONE else who participated and SHOWED up! You guys made the show really AWESOME....THANK YOU...!!!

Gonzo takes a moment to enjoy a special cigar, along with the grace and spector of a spring sunset over Los Angeles at the end of a day, that he has dedicated his whole life for!

You know, we will not exist if not for our fellow man, species, foe and everthing else that makes us whole. Case in point, the following pictorial of Darksiders and newly inducted "honorary" Darksiders, posing above Dodger Stadium over Los Angeles. Make your plans now for next year!

looks like you guys had a killer time hanging out with one-another :32: I wish I could have pulled it off and made it out there too. I started a so-cal jar that I am adding 10.00 a week to go towards my trip next year so I don't miss it again. :)
