Interview with Johnny Gr4ves

  11. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  18. A: A source that is solar powered (1) to charge my computer (2) that has an outrageously expensive hotspot wifi device (3) to then call for help. While I wait, I would use my phone (4) to do rough vocal recordings for the next time that I'm back to reality. Can't forget water (5).
