Preview: Road Trip California

When I think of California, I think of sun-kissed (or is that sun-burned) beautiful, industrious people. LA & San Francisco, well, they are California like Amsterdam is Holland or Paris is France – they all deserve their own book from me, which will arrive later. I have more of a romantic relationship with the state as a whole. From travel a few years back, I took a few weeks to explore California I had come to know and love through the years. From a visit in Folsom Prison to hikes in Yosemite to a private party at Hearst Castle to my Caveman at the Madonna Inn, some of the oddest, most beautiful, and most entertaining days, afternoons, and evenings I’ve had on a vacation. My crew of new and old friends – lumberjacks, lawyers, musicians, prison inmates, gas station attendants, masseurs, rock collectors and university deans – and Aziz is back from Muscle Ranch, meet me at naked beaches, pool parties, movie-house orgies, hiking, luxury hotels, and bargain tents. You’ll never see California quite the same way again. The eBooks will be coming out late March, I’ll be publishing excerpts within the week. Click on each book below for a sample chapter.

Ascent: Look Inside eBook

The first part of my California Road Trip, I move west-to-east to go into the high Sierras and enjoy the fresh air and sun, or what I can. I meet my old Colt Model photographer in Brisbane, and accompany him to Folsom Prison for a photoshoot. From there it get crazier, with a retired movie cowboy in Lone Pine, a photographer at Mono Lake, and a porn shoot in Olancha, and double that for in-between events. A bit of something for everybody, from bears and bikes, dads and boys, to rough trade and porn models.

This remarkable collection of stories document what happens over a few weeks at an invite-only retreat for offseason male bodybuilders, coaches, dads, sons, pros, amateurs, and powerlifters, as they get back to nature by giving up clothes, shaving, and eventually inhibitions to pursue the body beautiful.

Muscle Ranch Austin

End-January, I will start publishing the Muscle Ranch Austin books, a combined 1000-page series of my time at the private, invite-only offseason Muscle Ranch, the year they were hosted just outside of Austin, Texas. This trip, I’ve been selected as a “in-kind” sponsor for future events, and enjoyed special privileges along with being a judge at the new annual bodybuilding contest. Aziz’s Dad makes a surprise visit, along with my Persian muscle cub Sami. Dad and Denver are back also, along with an entire crew of new bodybuilders, and my new roommate Idris, with his special upbringing. Over 20,000 men have enjoyed these stories in serial form, now collected for the first time. Over the next month I’ll be updating the website with pages for individual books and chapters, which I know will be enjoyed. Stay tuned!

Volume: Available at Amazon

The second volume of Muscle Ranch brings me back into the arms of Aziz, the big hairy trainer, and what he does to my body – we’re talking muscles right? I also get re-acquainted with Doc, the all-purpose candyman for the bodybuilders at the ranch. Aziz has turned a corner on what he likes to do with men, and I help him explore more deeply sexually. Doc really takes a liking to me, and helps with a special massage class he has set up to help men get relaxed. Well, from special examination class to posing, to a great shaving session, I finally end up with Denver and his Dad, from the first Muscle Ranch series. Click image to read an excerpt…
