Well, it's Wednesday and I am still sleepy from 3 days at Hotel Tacoma this weekend. A driver picked us up at the airport and drove us straight to the Oregon Coast without telling us any details about where we were going or what we were about to do. We got to the sand dunes, the driver got out, put his flag up and rallied the brand new truck into the sandy desert. We eventually popped onto the beach where he drove a couple miles along the ocean to the entrance of Hotel Tacoma. Over the course of the next 3 days: We ate yummy ass food, dirt biked beside the Goonies rock on the beach, got in trouble for rallying a Polaris side-by-side too hard, met some famous cool people, threw axes into trees, swam in a lake at 2am, did 300 shots of tequila, pet Loki the Wolfdog, mountain biked on $7,500 mountain bikes, ate a pound of sand trying to win the mini bike races, jumped a brand new Tacoma off the ground, crashed one into the ditch, rolled down a hill in a blow-up orb, got a massage in a rainstorm & tried to collaborate all of that into a video that would fit into Instagram. Here's what I put together with the help of the new Hitcase 2.0 PRO case and lens. The thing is waterproof & shock proof - thank God cus' I dropped it in the ocean and also drunkenly threw it against a wall trying to prove to people that it worked.
Hotel Tacoma: Not 100% sure what I'm getting myself into this weekend, but after watching this video - I think it's going to be good. Last year was the first year that Toyota did their "Hotel Tacoma" activation in Arizona. They invited 96 influencers, athletes, Insta cool peeps, and all around awesome people to their "5-Star" 3-day adult-play place in the middle of no where, gave them all a truck, Yamaha dirt bike & Polaris side by said and let them go to town. This year the event is somewhere in Oregon and I only know that because I'm flying into Portland... Let the games begin dudes!! I am so ready. I will do another post when I get home. In the meantime, follow along on mine and Jenny's Instagram accounts: @actuallyitsaxel & @hookersandpopcorn
