In the early wintery months of 2008, eight celebrated, award-winning and downright awesome photographers from all over the country grabbed their snowboards to ride the mountains of Mammoth, California. This marked the beginning of what is now known as...wait for it...The Mammoth Men. What ensued during that getaway was a week filled with adventure, spontaneity, hijinks and storied tales. A bond was forged amongst these men and a commitment made to doing it again, and doing it often!
During the Summer of 2008, The Mammoth Men hit the road again. Only this time, they loaded up 10 photographers in a Prevost rock star tour bus, drove for five days up the California Coast and shared it with everyone via their traffic happy blog. So much so that their blog readers actually got to choose their day-to-day adventures while watching them play out the next day. The blog following continued even after the West coast trip ended and garnered media attention in the blogosphere.
Well, the guys are back for their much anticipated third installment of The Mammoth Men. Watch the mayhem unfold as these 12 photographers board their Prevost and head into the American Southwest to document their Route 66 road-trip. Packed with more guys, more miles and more camaraderie, it's not just a roadtrip...it's a lifestyle.
The books are closed on day three of the most epic man-cation... ever. Here is my visual account of the day. Go look at the MAMMOTH MEN blog for a more complete view of our adventures.
The was a cougar on the prowl in San Miguel... Rene Russo! She took quite a liking to Fred. Presumably because he's the only single guy among us. Oh, and because... she's a cougar!

This morning we checked out the poll to see what our tasks were for the day. The first one on the docket was to get to Solvang and eat some danish waffles in the Danish capitol of the United States. We met up with the one and only Jose Villa, had an incredible breakfast and then set out on our next task... picking blueberries.
We had this idea for an image of someones face just covered in blue berries. So Justin volunteered, grabbed a handful of berries and buried his face in them. We all gathered around expecting to see him covered in blue juice. Turns out, blueberries... not so blue.
Last night we set off on the road trip to end all road trips. We got kind of a late start so we only got to stop to take pictures once but here are a few. I'll be posting the images here but you need to check out our RAD roadtrip blog where we'll all be collectively blogging images from the trip. You'll also be able to vote on what we're going to be doing every day.
