OK that may have been the most epic saunasession ever (or at least “one of the. . .”). KLC was closing down the Creation Station in Whistler and we went up there to heat it up. The tension started building when the truck (of course) broke down before we even started moving, but you know we’re dope so we got that shit operational. Were we doing gung fu cha styles on a stove in the cab during a rainstorm on the way up? Oh yea. Epic sweats for two days in whistler jumping in the river at Function Junction? Check. 2 days of dressup with hot peeps and limitless wardrobe? Freestyling for 16 hours with a mic feed live from the sauna? Rapping in a real fucking bear’s face? Ride back to Van with CP and Professor Prawns and a blown transmission with only two gears? Fuck yaaaah.
So don’t come to my house in East Van Sunday night cause I’m in Whister closing out KLC’s infamous Creation Station (at Function Junction) in some serious saunasession style. You know the deets, bring a towel! What I hear is that Prawnsie and CP will be out too so you know there’s gonna be something freestyle serious
I’m completely stoked about our recent summer sessions! We made it through the heat for some low-key saunasessions with help from PBS, CP and Unity crew. Epic freestyles! Last night we slayed ’em with the freestyle bike at the PNE and Deuce Lite HQ.
We just rolled the truck back from Squamish! Holy fuck, Basscoast!
The police were so stoked about the saunatruck they insisted we get a tow from Lions Bay up to Squamish after we hung out with them for an hour or two on the highway. By the time we got to the festival our special agents had our riverfront site marked out ready for 4 days of sweaty nights and icewater plunges. The truck was made for this. We were made for this.

It’s been 6 months of awesome sunday nights here at One Two One Studios, and this sunday is the last time we heat it up on Heatley street! So when you’re done with Saturday night, and calling your Dad, and all the CarFree Vancouver festivities and BBQs on sunday, then it’s time for one more saunasession. Doesn’t matter what you’ve got to do first, we’ll be here after.
We’ve been cooking up East Van something serious these last few months at Saunasessions HQ on Heatley. Only 3 sessions left in our residency at OneTwoOne Studios so come down while while we still have the luxury of 6 couches, a dance studio and the tree bar. This sunday we’re up for another late night jam like last week when we blistered up woodhead’s fingers pretty good, but I think he’s OK now. Thanks to our all-star players! Who was that guy on the bongos till 530am?
We enjoyed many sauna sessions in the legendary Verhagen’s sauna caravan. Which can be seen also on this site. Unfortunately after a while this wonderful sauna was sold and we soon missed it’s hot and steamy climate. This gave me the motivation to build a new one. So, with all lot of experience and lessons learned by Verhagen, I rebuild this little dutch old-timer caravan dated into a real wood-burning sauna. After many creative ideas and lots of building fun this little caravan was ready for it’s second life in october 2009. And we enjoy it now, as much as we can!

“15-20 person Sauna built into a 6’x12′ cargo Utility trailer. I built one in a school bus conversion years ago. Here is a mobile sauna I just finished yesterday. I have been taking sweats and saunas since I was 3 years old (32 years ago)…”
What I like about this sauna is the serious “get ‘er done” attitude. No frills – a box with wheels and a door, a stove, some benches. Forget the expensive tongue and groove cedar and all the fancy carpentry. Plywood walls. 2×8 pine for benches. Minimal modification to the trailer, low overall cost in time and money, and could be completed with a tight deadline. You don’t need to get fancy to get sweaty.

Relaxing after a great sauna victory. Everyone’s a winner!
We can’t call it “Sauna Olympics” because they made that illegal. So the Vancouver Sauna Champions Invitational 2010 kicked off tonight with some demonstration qualifying heats. Our first event, the casual form sauna sitting was a thilling event with Megan “Sauna Hero” representing Thunder Bay besting all contenders. For sauna freestyle we had some amazing players in a exhibition round, with Khari Wendell McClelland emerging as the judges favourite. Get ready for the next set of heats . . .
Saunabus-LT is a tight little saunabus in Vilnius, Lithuania. This one completes our Baltic sauna trilogy with the Latvian Ponijpirts and the Estonian Autosaun and Firetrucksauna crews.
SaunaBus – a cozy sauna on wheels, which may come to you anywhere and at any time of day. Sitting in it you forget that you’re in the car. Everything is made using high quality materials, creates a comfortable atmosphere like lighting and music. This is an excellent opportunity to relax after a hard day of work without worrying about anything or simply spend a fun evening with friends.
