Kalani, how was your experience of Canby 2015?

Did you enjoy camping and the festivities once sealed in the grounds?

I forgot to give you guys dab, but how much dab was consumed?

Any stories from the drive up or the drive back?

it was pretty killer. it was super mellow and cool to meet a few people from the forum. 

plenty haha i re-upped before we left and my car was the dabsun for the weekend.

nothing major other than some minor ish issues with mikes 521 and kevins dime took a shit but no one was left behind.

long drive but a good one

on another note, stopped by the shop for a bit yesterday. I havent had the fuel lid on the dime since its been on the road because the hinge was rusted it broke off of the lid. While at Canby, I was poking around for one and theyre not as easy to find as I thought. but 510keeper gave me a tip and said to torch the hinge and it will burn the rust away inside...soooo I used my dab torch and it worked like a charm! Thanks keeper!
