Palm Springs board by our friend Jay Carroll of One Trip Pass


If your week was as busy (and inspiring) as ours you might do as we did and watch this video many times in a row in a sort of soothed, lulled stupor as Pendleton blankets are woven in a low whir of threads and then spread on the floor like peanut butter. Pendleton, take me away.

This video and these pictures were made by our pal Jay Carroll of One Trip Pass (of Oregon Fire Lines and coastal caravan fame — at least the fame of our small and humble blog). Right before we rolled off on our coastal caravan, we got a tour from Charlie Bishop at the Pendleton factory in Oregon. Pendleton is over 100 years old. But Charlie is not. Pendleton makes blankets for Ace Hotel, and they make the best damn flannel shirt you’ll ever find.


Happy Sunday.



We found these on One Trip Pass’s blog.


Remember the OTP x Ace Hotel coastal caravan? We had a couple pop-up shops in LA and Palm Springs at the end of our journey. The Airstream we lived in for a week or so was cleaned up (a little) and filled with goods. Here are some shots from the shop. You’ll see signs of life from some of our friends at Pendleton, Fjallraven, Gravel and Gold and others.

We’ve added another pop up shop to the itinerary. Our coastal caravan with One Trip Pass will culminate in two shops:
+ LA : September 23 - 24 (10% of sales will go to Paddle To Live, a fundraiser for cancer care)

+ Palm Springs : September 25 - 26
Come hear tall tales and collect handsome memorabilia from a secret society of innovative and one-of-a-kind party animals, some of whom we’ve been up to no good with on this very road trip.

ONE TRIP PASS X ACE HOTEL : PART IV
Ace Hotel and One Trip Pass continue our coastal caravan from Portland to LA to “rediscover American craft and standards, humor, kitsch, oddities, and the beauty of storytelling through artists, craftsman, individuals of character, stores, markets, wilderness and urban sprawl.” Notes from the Airstream:

It’s the beginning of week two of our trip down the coast, and in true caravan form, ours has expanded. After five days traveling down the 1 and the 101, we met up with our friends Nile, Cass and Lisa of Gravel and Gold who treated us to a welcoming party at their Bolinas getaway, full of good friends old and new, delicious farm stand food, wine and great times. The next morning we hit the road yet again to continue on, this time with Cass and our friend Andrea of Fjallraven on board.Keep an eye out for our LA and PSP pop-ups starting this Thursday, with goods from both shops as well as: APOLIS ACTIVISM // BILLYKIRK // BEST MADE // FIELD NOTES // GOLDEN BEAR // THE HILL-SIDE // MOLLUSK // MEG CO // PEARL+ // PENDLETON // RAPHA // RTH // TANNER // WAR HORSE MOCCASINS // YUKETAN
Take us on to Big Sur, road.

ONE TRIP PASS X ACE HOTEL : PART III : WELCOME TO CALI

Ace Hotel and One Trip Pass continue our coastal caravan from Portland to LA to “rediscover American craft and standards, humor, kitsch, oddities, and the beauty of storytelling through artists, craftsman, individuals of character, stores, markets, wilderness and urban sprawl.” Notes from the Airstream:

Day four was spent on the road — Bandon, Oregon to the Redwoods of California. We started off our day with a Scotch Egg from 2 Loons Cafe just outside Coos Bay on the Oregon Coast before heading south…

Welcome to California where everything is in color.

ONE TRIP PASS X ACE HOTEL : PART II

Ace Hotel and One Trip Pass continue our coastal caravan from Portland to LA to "rediscover American craft and standards, humor, kitsch, oddities, and the beauty of storytelling through artists, craftsman, individuals of character, stores, markets, wilderness and urban sprawl." The journey has been getting some love on Selectism and Secret Forts. Here’s the latest update:

We woke at the crack of dawn near Cape Meares Oregon to a foggy beach and a sea foam bath. Headed south en route to our favorite moccasin maker but not before we tried to find the Octopus Tree at the end of the Crab Harbor Peninsula. Driving down the desolate dirt road, flanked by water on both sides, Nate asked  ”You guys sure about this?” Moments later we
met face to face with an Army issue dump truck and had no option but to back our two-part 44 foot long rig up the half mile to the gate bearing the warning, DO NOT ENTER. We offered the MO a case of PBR to lighten the mood but he declined. “You guys in a band?” “Not quite.” We eventually backed up and found the Octopus Tree a few miles in the other direction.

Later down the drive we stopped at Dune City and took a minute to walk around and watch the dune buggies howling in the distance. Finally, in the late afternoon we reached our 
destination and picked up the 14 pairs moccasins our friend has been making for us. Got these here now next to me in the Airstream.

Not quite sure where we are right now, somewhere by Bullards Beach State Park I think, but we can hear the ocean. Ready for sleep, and ready for a new day in California, in full of color.

Stay tuned for more from the road. In the meantime, ready yourselves for the LA pop-up shop when Nate, Jou-Yie, and Jay finally reach the end of their journey with an eclectic, inanimate community of small and unexpected treats for you. (Please notice that we updated the address on the flyer.)
