PROBAR® @ Expo West

Well, It’s been awhile since I’ve posted an “On the Road” Blog so I will try to fit everything in here!


 After cruising through Southern California and staying at the beautiful Mission Bay area in San Diego, we found ourselves in Mesa, AZ. I was able to meet-up with our Natural Products Rep, John Copeland who helped me coordinate a Demo at Sunflower Market as well as providing me with info on all the good Climbing spots and Veg Restaurants around Phoenix!

One weekend, we ended up scoring a really sweet campsite at Oak Flats. It had an amazing boulder that we utilized for some Nocturnal Bouldering sessions!



In the beginning of March, I flew to Orange County in order to prepare for the Natural Products Expo-West. In addition to the Trade-show, we decided to host a Yoga and Art’s Gourmet Dinner at the very Luxurious Rental house we stayed in.


Yoga Shakti kicked off the night with a mellow session in the Backyard. It was the perfect way to relax the mind & body before the Chaos of a Trade-show. Art and his crew always Impress with their wonderful line-up of Vegan eats.


 Our friends from Sambazon Acai were there and contributed an important part of the Dessert (Acai w/ different Vegan Cheesecakes). It was such a great opportunity to meet some new and intriguing people. I sat at a table with A.J. and Jane Ali from Survivor Turns out they did an RV tour from New York to L.A. in a Big Pink Rig spreading inspiration and education about fighting Cancer!


The trade-show went very well for us and we were Bombarded with compliments about our product. One day I took the knives home to wash them and forgot to bring them back. I’ve attached a picture of Jason, improvising while someone went out to purchase a better knife……..Classic!


We are currently staying in Flagstaff, AZ at the base of Mt. Elden. I think there is a Weird Energy Vortex here because we can’t seem to get the RV level?…….oh, well. We are heading to Albuquerque on Monday where we will fly out to see my Family! It has been almost a year since I’ve seen everyone and it will prove to be the Best Birthday Present ever.RVfire

………………Thanks for checking out my Ramblings!

CLick here for some recent Roadtrip Climbing Footage.

    Awesome report luke. Love that picture of Jason!

    And cool bouldering spot. You’ve got a knack for finding the sweet boulders. When you’re in Utah next if you’re traveling on Highway 40 from Vernal to Heber, be sure to call me and I’ll give you some beta on a new bouldering spot that’s about 5 miles off Hwy 40. Primo!!
