A day of waking up at 4am and driving to Phoenix to go antiquing and eat at @whataburger for the first time with the best co-pilot @_redfive, wouldn’t be complete without eating pecan waffles at @wafflehouseofficial for dinner. Our server, Huey, gave Sam a Waffle House paper hat since it was her first time. #roadtrip #qualityforever #wafflehouse #arizona #phoenix #waffles

Stopped into @slashbackvideo tonight with @_redfive. A wonderland of nostalgia in the form of an art exhibit video rental store filled with horror VHS tapes, slasher film posters, 80s candy, and rad art. #vhs #slashbackvideo #horror #videocassette #videocassettes #the80s #losangeles #mysticmuseum #horrorfilms

Went down to Fullerton today to check out the Southern California Antique Radio Association swap meet. Pretty neat! Haven’t been to one since I used to goto the ones in Shoreline, WA. Friendly group of radio enthusiasts willing to share their knowledge. This guy had an AM station broadcasting from his trunk! He had a wire going to the chain link fence to use as an antenna, ha. Love these meetups. Used restraint and only bought a piano album on vinyl for a buck. Next time though... 🤔 #scars #antiqueradio #socalantiqueradioassoc #vintageradio #fullerton #swapmeet #happyplace

Throwback to driving around Washington with @_redfive in my old Ford. Cruising around listening to country, seeing friends, and hitting as many favorite spots as we could during that trip. #tbt #qualityforever 👯

This weekend was great. Had @howlinrays for the first time with the Burgers Never Say Die Crew, saw the new Kingsman movie with @_redfive, happily visited the rad dudes over at @daveshotchicken, and then today worked at @burgersneversaydie. Ready for the week 🙌🏼 #chinatown #losangeles

Happy National Cheeseburger Day! @_redfive and I celebrated at a California institution, In-N-Out. Double Double Animal Style and fries. Her fries were Animal Style, as you can see. Hope you all have a chance to eat a cheeseburger today! Whether it's beef, turkey, veggie, or whatever! Also I'm still posting over at my burger account @theburgeralmanac, if you like burgers and want to follow along! #nationalcheeseburgerday #burger #innout #cheeseburger #theburgeralmanac #burgeralmanac #california #classic #animalstyle

Went to an estate sale today at the home of Martin Mackey, with @_redfive @hairestreak  and @fl_mike. The house was filled with oddities and custom lighting he had made and just tons of incredible things. Walked away with a few post cards and a micro cassette with some recordings on it. One of the postcards is of the Twin T-Ps Cafe that used to be along Green Lake in Seattle!! The cafe opened in 1937 with owner Walter Clark, and according to legend he had hired Army buddy Harland Sanders, who perfected the fried-chicken recipe there that later made him rich, as the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken. So rad, definitely didn't expect to find that one, and am grateful the estate sale gods were on our side today. Also picked up an 8mm film from an estate in Burbank for fifty cents, excited to watch it later. Also, Sam found a 15 dollar Griswold cast iron pan! #twintps #twinteepees #greenlake #seattle #oldseattle #postcards #martinmackey #estatesale #iloveestatesales #takemetoallyourestatesales #forgottenseattle #greenlakeseattle #highway99
