I came into camp Thursday afternoon with local goldwinger Tommy. Scottmac and JStory were already there. The weather this year was superior! Warm days, cool nights without getting too hot or cold. Couldn't have been better, in fact.
Friday more of the FFs showed up. Here's GoldenTaco (unpacking his pretend GS in the background), JStory, Treadless, Tommy and Scottmac (way in the background by his pickup) in camp discussing the next move:


Here's Mikes commentary on what the next move should be: (Tommy apparently got quite excited over this idea)


Gillipunk himself showed up late Friday afternoon, and gave Scottmac a lesson on how to blow smoke....

Speaking of smoke.. many thanks to Scottmac for bringing a truckload of wood and a cooler full of food

The normal shennanigans prevailed around the campfire, with the addition of "Giant Jenga". Here's His Funkiness getting some wood himself:


Jstory, Tommy and I took off Saturday to see what we had come to see.. the Fall colors in the Sierra. We were not disappointed:









I had a great ride home on Sunday. Still excellent weather. Rode down 49 to Moccasin, then up Hwy 120 to Priest-Coulterville Road and in the 'back way' to Coulterville, then up the Little Dragon to Mariposa and out of the foothills via Ben Hur Road to Raymond. Then across the valley and home.

Me at the top of the Little Dragon:

GF did a good job on picking the right weekend, that's for sure. Kudos to Kiel for doing the legwork and orgasmizing of the event. It all worked out pretty well except for the raccoons and the pukey tent thing

We didn't take too many pics and admittedly most were of the little guy, but here are a couple from camp.

It really was fun to hang out with everyone- even if for a really short time. We're working the kinks out in the mobile tenement and hopefully by the time DVDaze rolls around (and certainly by the time for WARPED) I'll be able to load one bike up front.







We've had conversations with Hollywood about him not being as worthless next time so Kiel can be protected from the attack racoons...

...and here I thought it was KIEL that would defend the rest of us, including poor lil' ol' Hollywood!

-ps... that is one well-cared for, and obviously happy baby. Kudos to the 3 of you for the good parenting. Not bad for beginners!

The good thing is if the little guy likes camping now it should only get better as time goes by!

He is truly happiest when he is outside. When he would fuss right after we got back from Germany, I'd just walk out into the back yard and he would stare at the trees as the breeze went through them. He's already spent a bunch of time with me in the garage and heard most of the tools (except the welder and cutoff wheel for obvious reasons) and he loves it.

I'll be excited to get him on a bike and get started there.

Walt, thanks so much for the compliment. It means a lot when someone who has lived so much says something so nice. We are trying really hard and are very blessed with such a healthy young man.

Oh, you poor child. Maybe you'll turn out just fine, anyway.
