In August there was a race that was held on Neptune Ave. in Encinitas. The race takes place on a tandem bike (our bike was provided by JONES SODA CO.) The race is about 5 miles long trough the town of Encinitas and it takes about 20 minutes, the only catch is that it is a bar crawl. So there were eight stops where you had to a shot or drink a beer. I don't know when you last drank beer as fast as you could then ran, but it is hard. Amie Thomas was my partner and we were returning champs from last year for the women. We were the Jones Clean Up Crew. Little play on word while being a little competitive as well. HA. There were great costumes and good people.

Paddle Board 
Thursday, August 4, 2011, 08:19 PM

Yesterday I went paddle boarding with the crew and of course Gidget. She is a little trooper and enjoyed jumping from one board to the next when she is out on the water with us. Didn't think that she would be that into doing these sorts of activities but she was right along with us as we enjoyed the sunset.

After the bed is made, the image is complete. Gidget is already enjoying the bed being off the ground and the comfort it is suppling.

Custom Bed by Eric Sheetz 
Wednesday, August 3, 2011, 01:15 PM

So I have this very creative and talented friend that can make cars from scratch, is a killer mechanic, surfer, and insurance salesmen. He is what you would call a Jack of All trades. I asked him to make me a bed for my room in Cali that would have a coastal flare with my own touch. So he had me draw something up and came back to him with my specs. He finished with a product of the highest quality that can be taken apart for easy transport (since I move around a lot) and the feminine flare that I was craving. The bed had a mermaid, seahorses, shells, turtles, and starfish. The best part is that there is not one like it anywhere in the world, I have an Eric Sheetz Original. If you are interested in beds, chairs, tables, hooks, or anything contact him through Facebook and you could have one of his pieces too.

Day At The Races.....Thanks Craig Dado 
Sunday, July 24, 2011, 05:27 PM

Opening Saturday was yesterday and me and a group of my friends got to go to the TURF club. The turf club is the nicest section of the race track with the best layout and dinning experience. I was presenting an award and flowers to the owners of the horse that won race 5. We got to hang out in the winners circle for a good 30 mins and had the best seats in the house. It was such a great experience and I cannot wait to go to the track again.

Petree's Progress  
Tuesday, July 5, 2011, 09:18 PM

It has now been 5 days since we found Petree, and he is getting stronger every day. Every time Jesse, Amie or I peer over that nest he is reaching up and opening his mouth as wide as it can go. More of his fluffy feathers are coming in and is chirping up a storm. We feed him every 15/30 minutes a day right now but that will change when he gets older.

Baby Bird 
Monday, July 4, 2011, 02:09 PM

The second day that we were in our new place we found a baby bird. The nest was no where to be found and we were unsure what to do. We moved him to the open grass and within minutes the parents found him and were feeding him. They tried to make the pickup but the baby was a little too big for them to handle, so they tried to stash him in a crack for the night. We knew that the sprinklers we going to come on soon and we did not want the baby to freeze and drown, so we made a nest and brought the baby inside. After he made it though the night we named him Petree. We have been feeding him small amounts of wet dog food. It is the coolest thing to feed a baby bird, I have never done anything like this before, but we had the help of Jesse and his mother to guide us on what to do. I will keep you posted on Petree's progress.

Sun is Shinning 
Saturday, July 2, 2011, 11:59 PM

Jesse and I on the Palmer Chair lift. Taught him how to ride this past New Years and he is a natural. Being from Dayton Beach, FL. I thought that Hood would be the best combo for his with the sun, warmth and snow.

Foggy Day Below 
Thursday, June 30, 2011, 08:35 PM

When you first go up the chair you think that there will be no end to the fog, and you will be riding in this condition all day, but if you have been up in Hood before then you know that most of the time you come out on top and there is beautiful sunshine. Hood in June can be finicky but it definitely has its rewards. I had such a productive trip up there I was extremely happy with myself. Today I moved into my new place (in Cali) for the summer and will be adding pictures soon of all my adventures so don't be a stranger.

Weather can move in and out fast up in Hood, and with a view like this, can quickly remind you how small we are in this world. To keep everything this beautiful in this world, be sure to do you part, start small and try to pick on thing to make a difference.

Hood Follow Up 
Friday, June 24, 2011, 01:49 PM

This was a hike that we went on, down the Salmon River trail. Everything looks so old and prehistoric. The trees are so lush and huge, it feel like you are in another time. Gidgett was not afraid to follow me over any log there was even if it went over the river.

Trip to MT. HOOD 
Wednesday, June 22, 2011, 10:18 PM

Went to Mt. Hood for the Last 3 weeks. This is now my 12th year going to Mt. Hood and Windell's and I love every minute of it. I went on hikes, down to Hood River, worked on my condo and of course got on the slopes. The crew consisted of Jesse Heilman (pictured), Chris Mahaney, and Brooke Shaw. We had a great time chillin by the pool, eating volcano cone and enjoying the scenes. There was more snow on the mountain this summer than I have ever seen this time of year. Hood, miss you already. Check back soon and you will see a collection of pictures that were taken on the trip.

Our Memorial Day consisted of going to Big Bear to do a Tough Mudder race. As you well know I am a really competitive person as well as my two friends with me , Rob and Amie. Rob is my fitness coach for the summer time, and this seemed like the perfect thing to for Amie and I to rope him into doing. This was the hardest thing I have ever done. It was a ten mile race up and down Snow Valley several times, and doing things like crawling in mud under barbed wire and hauling logs up and down a mile. To wrap up the race we had to run through a electrical field that would shock you so hard it hurts your teeth and makes your hearth feel like it jumped directly out of you chest. Check out the related link below.

I love you so much MOM. Thank you so much for everything that you have done for me in my life. You are my mental rock and I would not be where I am today if it wasn't for YOU and DAD. Miss you so much when I travel, but I am always thinking of you.

Museum of Death 
Friday, April 29, 2011, 12:51 AM

In this picture>>>Kathy, Jesse and me
Last trip up to LA, I went to visit the Museum of Death on Hollywood BLVD. It opens up a new perspective to the meaning of life. The museum had such great history of famous deaths, murders, serial killers, embalming procedures and funeral details, the list goes on. It was run by the most energetic and enthusiastic couple (JD and Kathy) I had ever met. They instantly made me feel welcome and gave me a tour of their museum.

Today I got to sleep in...that was nice since I have been going non stop ever since I got to Cali. It was a beautiful day so we decided to take a stroll on the beach and pick up trash. We did that for about two hours and enjoyed the sun and company. You would not believe the kinds of thing that we found. We collected a ton of trash in a mile and a half strip. So please remember to throw away your trash and don't be a litter bug.

Long Beach Grand Prix 
Monday, April 18, 2011, 12:01 AM

This was the first time I have ever gone to an indy car race. I went to the Long Beach Grand Prix to see my friend race with Jesse. We had the best time cruising through the whole event. There was so much to see. We got to go in the pit before they started the race and check out the cars up close, I could of hoped in one if I wanted. There was also the paddock where all the trailers were lined up for every racer. So many things to choose from, vendors, food, drinks and clothing of your favorite racer. Thank you so much for the tickets James!!!! After the race James let me get in his car to see what it felt like. The car is custom molded to your body to ensure a safe and comfortable fit. My hips were having a hard time fitting into his seat, ha.
It was also great that the crew from the east coast Mackenzie, Cesira and Tyler were able to join.

New Skate 
Thursday, April 14, 2011, 05:05 PM

Got my new skate last week. Tried it out at the fair for my main mode of transportation. Loving being in the sun and hanging out with friends, life is great. Been out in Cali for a week and the home search continues. Wish me luck in the search.... :)

Cali Sunset Cruise  
Tuesday, April 12, 2011, 12:26 AM

Weather is warming up and do you know what that means????? That means I am in Cali surfing and doing every other activity I can think of. Pedaling through town is my favorite way to get around. There is so much to do, there are fairs and stores to snoop in and when you add friends to a sunset mission it just ties the day together so nicely.

It would be really sweet if you could pull me into TOWN!!! 
Sunday, April 10, 2011, 08:19 PM

This weekend there was a fair in downtown Encinitas. Amie and I wanted to stroll downtown but in style. Lots of great crafts, home furnishings, jewelry, and food. The weather was amazing, we could not have asked for a better day.

I decided to switch things up and take out my new skis that Kessler gave me. What do you know, they feel as great as a Kessler board. I brought these back home with me when I was over in Switzerland at the Kessler factory. The skis felt so great, had a awesome shape and a sleek black look that caught everyones' eye.

My brother, Ben and my lake friend, Mark were also along for the ride...What we learned today was if some asks are you with Pedigree? You say YES.

For April 3, it was quite the amazing weekend, we had 8 inches of fresh snow yesterday and then the weather stayed cool to maintain the snow's freshness. There was no wet precipitation in the program. The sun was out all day as were we. There are roomers going around Stratton that they might stay open an extra weekend since they have had such a good snow year. We will know in a few days what the call will be on that, so stay tuned.

I had to take apart the rodel and pack it in my board bag to bring it home from Switzerland. In Europe they use the metric system, so the search for the proper size tools can be tricky. With help from THE THRILL (Will) we were able to put together to legendary rodel. I cannot wait to test it out on the slopes of Stratton.
