"Jumping a group of skateboarders at three in the morning isn't the best idea."
Hammeke takes the Creature guys skating, bowling, and fighting in Arizona.

Looks like some homeless folk had a good time before we got to the hubbas
When in Tucson, it's recommended that you stay at the Congress Hotel
Especially if someone is going to celebrate a birthday, like Sean Connover here
Larry is the bartender there, and he'll make sure that you cannot skate the next day
...but if you can make it out to skate, Suski is the ultimate spot guide
It rained for two days straight, so we took it to the bowling alley on day one and to the Sk8 Asylum on day two
Partanen with a lien air
Navarrette and park rat Rad compare their double chins
Notes from the Underground and 'Zine Thing editor, Wez Lundry, still got the finger flip to tail
Jimmy Moore came out to skate, but was bummed when he found out there was no free product
My college roomate Rob Nordstrom backed up his drunken claim that he's still got the tailgrab nosegrind on vert
Chris Livingston is still ripping, a-la Indy air
He's also a licensed physical therapist with an ultimate set of tools
This is what extension cords start to look like when you gotta pack up in front of the cops every time
Darren got a new cell phone
Some Creature fiends
All tour vans should come with this neon sign
DAF with a backside tailslide on this rail
Truman's got some ups
Another Arizona must is to get breakfast at Harlow's
Jumping a group of skateboarders at three in the morning isn't the best idea. Guys whose job involves slamming on concrete all day aren't all that phased when thrown to the ground by three drunk assholes. Here, Partanen grabs one of Tucson's military BRATs by the face, just after the guy's friend hit Noah with a bottle.
