I stumbled upon the Guerrilla Gardening Club while eating at one of their Monday dinners at St.Timonthy’s church. I was really taken in by the amount of knowledge, opportunity, support, and love I felt with in the group. The GGC helps to beautify the community at the same time providing jobs, volunteer opportunities, and education.

After running into my friend Sofia at the funky Captain Nasty show in Morro Bay and talking to her I found out she was sailing up and down the pacific coast on the Lady Washington tall ship. I asked if there was any way I could hop aboard for a couple days.Turns out they just let a crew member go and after getting an OK from the captain I was signed onto the books and had my first open ocean sailing experience. Thanks everyone on the Lady Washington for your courage, friendship, and adventure.
After surviving my three day trip over the ocean from Morro Bay to San Francisco aboard the Lady Washington I met up with an old high school buddy I hadn’t seen in twenty years, rocked the dance floor at his bar and met this super cool tree activist, Jungle Bird, who is using humor to help stop deforestation. http://junglebird.org
I met Walker and Tammy one day while exploring the sand dunes with some friends. We happened upon their campsite and spooked them a bit at first then we shared some stories and became friends. Walker showed me some of his bamboo and Plastic PVC Flutes and I told him we should jam out. So we jammed out. He and tammy come over to the boat I’m living on and we all shoot the breeze, have some food, and enjoy the birds, sunsets, and sea life of Morro Bay. Living the Dream!
I met Jack Smith of the Morro Bay Skateboard Museum from a young skateboarder while we were skating around town. After conversing with Jack for a minute I knew I had met one of the coolest skateboarders alive. Make sure you check out the museum on your next visit to central California’s majestic and awe inspiring Morro Bay. http://www.mbskate.com/
The wild wacky and a little bit zany, Willow Jon river rafts, plays music, makes friends with mischievous little monkeys, swims in a volcanic mud bath and continues his world wide tour of joy through Colombia and Ecuador. Enjoy!
Willow Jon continues his world adventures with a trip to South America where his curiosity, enthusiasm, and gigantic appetite for adventure are even bigger than ever. Animals, smiles, music, butterflies, pristine beaches, laughter and more. What else could your ask for?
Check out my audition tape for TLC’s show, “Cheapskates” I had so much fun skating around town, eating berries, doing back flips, playing guitar, getting free samples, hitchhiking, and sleeping in my hammock to show people how you can live life the Willow Jon way, like a professional cheap-skater. “Cheap, Cheap, Cheap Skating along! Just Cheap, Cheap, Cheap, Skating along!”
Willow Jon and April Joga ride Odessa and Eclips up Green Water trail to Echo lake in the great pacific northwest state of Washington, crossing creeks and bridges, under old growth forest with sunlight breaking through past wildlife and hikers, to a very peaceful place.. Some of the steep cliffs got my heart rate up a bit but I had to trust my horse. What a thrill.
In the fall of 2009 I took a trip to Thailand, Cambodia, and Loas. I filmed my experience playing music with the locals, exploring the captivating islands of southern Thailand, adventuring through the jungles of Cambodia to historic Anchor Watt, and chartering a slow boat and floating down the Mekong river for seven days with twelve strangers. As my English mate Simon would say. “It was pure Genius!”
I’ve been skating since I was about 8. I remember people riding banana boards on ramps in Sedona, Arizona behind the trailer I lived in. I got a board and I was hooked. Here’s a video of me skating in the birthplace of Skateboarding, Santa Monica and Venice Beach California.
