A pleasant day of cruising comes through this week courtesy of Nate Broussard, Adrian Adrid, and Steven Webb. The crew spends a couple hours out in a San Bernardino schoolyard. I’d say worth a viewing or two. In further Nate news, his longtime coming Day The The Life Part 2 (Part 1 in case you missed it) will be up in full splendor next week.
