Dripthat of an Epic Las Vegas Guys Weekend

Earlier this year I did an EPIC trip to Las Vegas with some of my best friends. While we partied - ate - drank - laughed hard it was impossible to share the full excitement and awesomeness of the event.

It's getting hot and if you are in the Southwest United States, it's going to get a lot hotter over the next few months. I just drove back from Las Vegas and as we drove through Baker, CA the thermometer on the car hit 116 degrees!
