Oj Wheels' "To Denver & Back" Photos

Words & photos: Ben Karpinski

This winter the OJ wheels guys decided to head to Colorado in search of epic concrete and camping. Cranny and P-Stone packed up the van in SF and rolled down to Southern California to pick up the crew. With Willis Kimble, Willy Akers, Greyson Fletcher, Oscar Navarro, Daniel Malkovich and Tyler “Squints Imel in tow, it was time to head east to meet up with Chet Childress, Cody Boat and the Arvada Army.



First order of dirty business in Vegas was to stop by Baca’s and say what’s up to Cortez.


A quick clean up and then Sammy gave us directions to the new Craig Ranch Park in Vegas. Malky blasted a grasser then it was off to Colorado.


Van Legs


Stopped and paid homage to the old Grand Junction Keyhole.


Chet’s homie Greg was kind enough to let us crash at his place for a few days and even had his own bowl built into his driveway. Squints bashed off the garage.


Fully equipped with a gym!

You know things are heating up when the capes and tripods come out.


Willy Akers grind up to disaster.


Greyson Kickflip.


Squints fast plant into the bowl.


Pulled off the road to camp on the way to Buena Vista.
 

Woke up to this. (Where’s Willy?)

Squints was at 1 O’clock!


Tried to go a little bit higher…..


Down but not out.


Then the snow came and it was pack to Arvada.


Greyson caught a last minute smith before it was time to hit the road.


Thanks again, Greg!
