Next Stop... Prescott, AZ!

Next stop on the Vanishing America Journey is a visit to Prescott, Arizona, where BABS and The Greasy Beast will be Featured Vehicles in the First Annual Overland Expo (

This is guaranteed to be a great event, with classes and seminars on overland driving, vehicle recovery, navigation, and first aid, just to name a few. There will also be presentations by well-established overland travelers and a large exposition of products and services exclusively for the overlanding community, including the highest quality equipment, vehicles, camping and outdoor gear to see, test, and purchase.

Overland Expo.2009 ~ Adventure, Exploration, & Conservation

Overlanding is a different way of exploring our world - whether 100 miles or 10,000 miles from home - in comfort, safety, and style. It's camping like you've never experienced.

Overland Expo.2009 is an all-new and exclusive event for people who see their 4WD or ADV motorcycle as a means to adventure and exploration, and who see travel as a portal to learning about the world, as well as a means to conserving its beauty and preserving its unique cultures.

No other event for 4WD or motorcycles combines intensive education modules, social opportunities to visit with hundreds of other enthusiasts and to share information and experiences, and a wide array of product

and service vendors just for overlanding-related activities, both mechanized and human-powered. Service and conservation organizations, land agencies, and clubs/associations will also be on-hand April 24 - 26, 2009.

Check them out at!

Vanishing America Photos now on Sale!

In this crazy economy, spending several hundred dollars or more on a Gallery-Edition work of art can really put a strain on the family budget. Yet, at the same time, you want to support The Vanishing America Project any way you can, and you love the images so much that you absolutely HAVE to have them on your wall!

Well, now you can.

I have set up several galleries on a special website, making available hundreds of images from my travels around the United States. From Wild Mustangs to pristine landscapes, the images are every bit as stunning and beautiful as the Gallery series. And they are VERY affordable! The only thing they lack is the signature!

Go to to order anything from a little 4x6 postcard to a huge 30x40 poster, and everything in between. (8x10 prints are only $30, and big 16x20 prints are only $75!)

You can even order t-shirts, mugs, keychains, and other merchandise with the image of your choice.

So, go to and fill up your walls with some great photographic art!
