Just wanted to put up a special thanks to the people in the community who supported us through the recent pie auction. Although it wasn’t a great turnout, the people that did show up were very generous! Thank you so much for your support, as well as your ideas for other fund-raising opportunities that also help out the community. Also, thank you to Mother’s Kitchen who allowed us to use there facility and provided coffee at no charge! We hope to have another community event within the next few weeks.

Newest Wild Animal Park Visit

It’s been a little while since I have blogged, a lot has happened! Unfortunately our little mountain school was broken into and all of our technological equipment (computers, printers, etc.) was stolen!

On a positive note, we had an amazing trip to the Wild Animal Park! The keepers there (Andrew and Kim) allowed us to tour the research facility, the frozen zoo, and then it was out to the field in one of their keeper trucks, it was awesome! We have one more trip to the WAP planned this year, they are so exciting!

Heard some noises outside on Saturday, looked out and saw this trio of turkeys…since we have lived here we have seen deer, turkeys, coyotes, countless birds, racoons, squirrels, mice, even a skunk! I love living on Palomar!

When's Thanksgiving??

Trash…

After a big snow storm, and an amazing bike race, there is a lot of trash on Palomar! I am impressed by the cycling community, as there is not nearly as much trash as I expected. Most of the spectators seemed to respect the environment on the mountain. It seems like a few people left a lot of trash!

Found this at one spot on South Grade

We had fun picking up all the trash and recyclables…luckily for us the nice people at Mother’s Kitchen let us dispose of the trash in thier dumpster, and gladly took the recyclables! The even treated us to some OJ for the hike back to school!

At the KOM line with all our trash!

Amgen Tour of California Stage 8

Well, today was an amazing day on Palomar Mountain! I have never seen this many people up here, it was great!

It all started with an intense baking session at my house. My wife, my sister, and Amanda were there furiously baking cookies until after midnight! Then it was up by 6:30.

The day started off a little disappointing, I had reserved 7 parking spaces at my house, but only 1 person actually parked there! A couple of people did contact me about not making it, but a few didn’t even call or e-mail so I was stuck waiting for them until about 11 am.¬†¬†Then it was down to our booth, which multiplied as Bonnie let us set up another booth at her spot right by the King of the Mountain line!

This was a very exciting race, I know absolutley nothing about cycling, and pretty much only know of Lance Armstrong and Floyd Landis…but this was really an awesome event! We ended up right on the road about 200 yards past the King of the mountain! A lot of fun, and a great crowd…the cycling community are a great bunch of people. Here are the pics…
