Gonna miss you man, you're surly days and insane obsession with Texas will always make me laugh.

He was a good kid, spent Christmas day this year with him in Roseville. RIP Joey.

Yeah I traveled with joey for a little while about a year ago. I actually went with him back to santa cruz to see his mom and grandmom. I ended up with his dog sprocket when we split ways in Cali. He was an awesome kid, I remember waking up next to him in k-falls with his sleeping bag frozen to the ground. He will be missed.

the thought of this kid lying in little pieces somewhere is fucking killing me. i didn't know whyme for a very long time, a little over a year or thereabouts and only got to know him well last summer. anyone who knew him would agree that the term "asshole" applied almost perfectly to his persona and would also agree that the kid was fucking hilarious in every sense of the word. he would crack jokes and hurl random insults at strangers and make ridiculously big spange signs and then tell me to play jolene or some townes song while gesturing at everyone passing by to make sure they noticed. i don't think his tactics made us any more money than usual and in fact might have made us less, but they sure brightened our lives a little bit.. he cut my hair for me and made food and took me on my first moped ride to cheer me up after some really bad shit happened in richmond. he took care of me and hung out with me for days, and it was an incredible fucking relief after all the betrayal i saw that week. whyme didn't like a lot of people but when he did like somebody he was a loyal fucking friend. i wish i had gotten to spend more time with him than i did, but i will always remember the time i did get with him as some of the most fun and most beautiful of my life to this day. i miss the shit out of you joey johnson, rest in peace buddy, you're loved and remembered by all your friends.

that reminded me about how he would always write elaborate shit on the back of my signs and then give me a passcode so i could turn it "on". as he would say, there is no off switch.

Obviously not a regular here...but I was asked to pass this on by a rider who was still on the road: Joey was found near a town of Uvalde in Tx. From what is understood, he was ridin a deepwell piggy. He was lying down to sleep and rolled into one of the holes in the floor. Definitely a freak accident.

this info is accurate. i've heard a lot of stories floating around that are not.
joey's mom is planning a memorial and will invite any friends who can make it. his myspace is www.myspace.com/massgore and she's his #1 friend (Mary Johnson), in case anyone wants to friend request her and get an update when plans are in place for the memorial. It'll probably be in watsonville (near santa cruz) since that's where she lives.
cheers, dye

NOT SO FAST on heading to Chicago. I can tell it's a rough place to start over. I applied for another job in Mpls, and see how that goes in 2 weeks. If they take their time, like I don't have my own, bye. But, I'm going to give them a chance.

You ever find your road dawg? I just had mine bail on me before we even left and I'm still going, but I'm not really looking forward to being solo again. Did it before and it just kinda sucked. I can try to meet you wherever you'd want. I'm in the middle of illinois right now. Hmu if you're interested and we can chat and get to know each other before we decide if we should meet up.✌
