"This trip was taken by myself and Ruben Alcantara almost 5 years ago. It was put out along with an Etnies Road Trip video that came with Dig issue number 52. Because it was being burned on a hard copy, I had to use different music for the second half of the Train Trip. This was the music I originally edited it with. This played all last year on the Bicycle Film Festival Tour around the world. I've gotten a number of requests to put this up online. So here it is, Freaky Friday February 19th, 2010. Enjoy!"

Ruben is the king of New Lynn skank park, he seethe's style, full a etiquette, loves trails & had a dam good time in NZ......how could you not tho! So here's few of my fav Ruben vid's, chiao!
what the terrible 1 Joe Rich has to say "Six weeks, 1 regluar sized back pack for each of the 2 of us, 1 super 8mm camera, 1 DV video camera, 1 35mm film photo camera, 2 bmx bikes, $400 in train tickets each = 1 amazing adventure. We had the most basic of plans . . . Leave Malaga, Spain by train, and arrive in Prague (Czech Republic) six weeks later. No day was ever mapped out before hand. We'd take a train to a new city, leave the station upon arrival, and see what we could get into. Some cities we stayed for days, others just over night. "Chance" and "Wonder" were our co-pilots. Exploration and adventure go hand in hand, add in our loose schedule and we had ourselves one amazing journey" . . . .
