Our dude Jack Leonard was down in Cali for a bit to escape the on-again, off-again winter we’ve been experiencing here in Canada and snapped this dope truckdriver photo with the help of Joey Cobbs behind the lens. Jack’s hitting the road with us tomorrow for our ‘Genesee-ing is Gene-believing’ trip down to Rochester, NY so watch out for a bunch more from him real soon.
