50 Years Ago Today

Pasadena, CA -- That would be me in 1962, downing my first birthday cake with cousin's, "Bug" and Cheryl. It's been a good ride so far!

If all goes to plan...

The High Sierra -- Not much more than a three-hour drive from Los Angeles, looms the Southern Sierra. Hopefully, I will be heading up into the high country of the Sierra Nevada to commune with my furry-tailed friends. The plan is to take a group of Scouts on a four-day backpack. This will be one of two trips planned this Summer. The second trek will be with my wife in Yosemite's high country.

Swimming in L.A.

Big Rock Camp, LA County -- Growing up in the 60s and 70s, we kids had all kinds of freedom. It seemed like the summer before us would last an eternity. None of us counted the weeks or days until the first day of school. Then, like a slap in the face, a "Back To School" commercial from Miller's Outpost would jolt us back to reality of just how short summers were.
