Gallery: The MarkAss Crew takes Tahoe by storm

Leaving Big Bear before sunrise to avoid “detection” the MarkAss crew made their way north along California to the Lake Tahoe Basin. Arriving in South Lake Tahoe, a hotel close to the casinos was chosen, so any late night urges could be satisfied.

Cruising around in the trucks, the boys looked for fresh victims. Plans were formulated and set into motion. To stay out of the ever watching eye of the public, we hung out at closed buildings and tunnels in the mountains. Still, things got hard at times. 

At one point a difficult situation had to be handled with a hacksaw and a dismembered limb was dumped in an undisclosed location. Another time we had to ditch a fresh kill when a “citizen” came out and caught us in the act, threatened to call Pale Face in Blue.

These minor setbacks didn’t keep us from making business happen. Each of the guys stepped up to the occasion and slaughtered the various spots.

Check the gallery to see all the gruesome details and then MarkAss Mondays to peep the video coming out soon.
