Here Comes The Storm

The last time Dean Loucks, founder of The Art of Design (TAOD) in Elkhart, Ind., was at the Desert Storm Poker Run in Lake Havasu City, Ariz., was two years ago and you couldn’t wipe the smile off his face thanks to a flight over the lake with Lake Havasu’s Water Jetpack Adventure.

Loucks will be in Lake Havasu again next week for the annual poker run, which includes the Krusin’ for Kids boat rides on Wednesday, the Street Party on Thursday, Friday’s poker run and the shootout on Saturday. He’ll be coming to Arizona straight from his first visit to Austin, Texas, for the Bus ‘N Bikers “Keepin It Weird In Austin” Rally. He and Nancy Chupp are traveling in his luxury Liberty Coach, which was painted by TAOD and featured on the Travel Channel. Altogether the RV and accompanying trailer for a Ferrari, motorcycle and more stretches more than 76 feet long.
