Two Lanes Inspire us. Motivate us. Move us… When launching our Two Lane Travel Contest on Instagram a few weeks back, we wanted to see the types of places that inspire YOU.
Those kind of roads that when you’re on them and you feel the dirt and gravel underneath your wheels, you can finally take a deep breath. It was hard to narrow down our favorite, but the winner is Robert out of Campbell, California – also known as @HotRodHeb on Instagram. We asked Robert a few questions about his winning photograph (pictured below), and here’s what he had to say:
“Hi, my name is Robert Causey, aka @HotRodHeb, and I have been interested in photography, Volkswagens, and rusty junk for many years now. I started with photography back in college with a camera that used this stuff called film and have gone through a few different DSLR cameras now. Old air cooled VWs have been in my life sine I was three years old and I still have that first one as well as many others through the years. My backyard is decorated with well over a hundred license plates, some old free signs, a few old gas signs, antique car parts, and even an old scooter.And now on to the picture. This picture was taken on the 2010 Shasta Snow Trip in Northern California. This was obviously taken back when we had water! The Shasta Snow Trip has been held every year since 2000 and is a backroads adventure from outside Clear Lake to Shasta City. The vehicle requirements for this trip are 1967 and earlier VW buses and range from buses that are purpose built for the trip to ones that have recently been pulled out of the woods. The idea of the trip is to use as many backroads, trails, and dirt roads as possible and use of a freeway is certainly frowned upon. My buddy Taylor (@busbuddha on Instagram) and I were in his 1967 Riviera camper bus for the trip and I was the designated photographer since he was driving. This shot was taken on one of the many river/creek crossings that we came upon. When this photo contest was announced, I knew that this picture had to be one of my entries.”
Congratulations Rob, your Two Lanes Collection prize pack is on it’s way!
Thanks so much to all of you for entering. Stay tuned for more contests coming up!
