Just like that, Summer is almost over so I wanted to get one last trip up the mountain with everyone to see the “S” and the valley with the summer sky's and summer sunsets one last time and this trip did not disappoint.  We had a total of 15 (Well, we started with 15,...

Every year we get the great opportunity to be apart of the town of Idyllwilds 4th of July Parade and This years 4th of July parade was amazing like usual.  There was some concern about getting up the hill due to the ongoing construction on the highway from the floods...

CALICO 2019

Earle Power Memorial Run – 2018

The pre-run was more for seeing how my new JK worked out before I led the actual run and my lovely wife took the old, reliable White ZJ of death on both the pre run and on the run - and literally beat it like she doesn’t have a dime in it – and we both made it out,...
