Rolling Cowboys

Another shop I visited in LA was Rolling Cowboys.  Right away when I saw the dog and the sign I knew that the owner and I were going to get along swell.

This was totally confirmed when I saw that he had actually framed some photos from the AC annual and hung them up in the shop.

That's Mark in my old van crashed out at the RW24 and Treasure from Surly drinking on a Bridge

And here's me, with the megaphone.  (he asked me to sign it, so I did.  NBD)

I don't know if you've ever walked into a shop and spotted a photo of yourself on their wall, but pretty much that guy could have kicked me in the nuts and I still would have liked him a ton.  (though I'm glad he didn't kick me in the nuts, and instead was just all around super awesome and interesting)

This is the owner Dan, sometimes you go into a shop and you find that the store is a direct reflection of the owner's personality.  This was one of those times, Dan had tons of stories, and tons of rad stuff around his shop.

If you're in LA stop by and talk to Dan about all of his found objects.

The Thunderdome! It exists? I saw it in the QBP Catalog, and thought is was more an item of folklore than something tangible, it doesn’t exist according to google.
