about

This is the fifth installment chronicling the motorcycle journey of Roy Ruth as he transitions from a life of farming to a life of writing. In this episode, Roy decides to settle in Yosemite and begin work as a Potwasher in an industrial kitchen. Surrounded by the immense beauty that is the Yosemite Valley, Roy finds inspiration in the changing abstractions of the landscape, the mundane, the monotony of the pot room, the unspeakable, beer, and odd friendships. Featuring members of B. Hamilton, Once and Future Band, Saything, Ted the Block, Judgement Day, Ladeeda, and Silver Shadows.
