My Great Uncle Mic Mead in what I have to believe is the late 60's. He then went on to purchase a single door camping/mountaineering store called Adventure 16 (A16) and turn it into a full fledged retail chain which my Dad runs to this day.

Here is Mikey Todd discovering he got double whammied! Stand Up Jet Skier die cut along with the ever popular gay pride flag.


Not only does Jef at Hansen's do an amazing job tuning my boards, but he always leaves me with a custom sticker job.


A look into my Pops' office. I don't think it has changed since 1987. If you have ever been to my house you know where I get my interior design tastes from.

Time Machine

I used to take Amtrak to Santa Ana a lot and ride my bike to Costa Mesa to hang out with friends. This was before hangovers affected me.
This nice young man was on the same train as I was. He spent a good 30 minutes talking to an old Asian lady about these flowers and how hard they were to grow. 10 seconds later he was out cold. It made me wonder who he was delivering them to. Guess I'll never know.

Time Machine

Mikey and I during the October 2007 fires. This was taken mid day and the ash in the air made it look like fog.

I was going through my phone last night and realized that I have some amazing photos on it. I have kept every good photo I have taken on my phone since the iPhone came out. I am going to start posting some photos and give you a little back story of the photo.

Here we have Mr. Patrick Lloyd in my living room the morning after the first ever NEPTUNE 500. I lived with Kyle Kennedy at the time and he thought it would be a good idea to park his friends motorcycles in the living room of our house. I guess the original idea was to park them up stairs but the bars wouldn't fit up the stair way.....thanks god. I came home the next morning, opened the door to see this.

Arts and Crafts

I always find myself ripping or cutting out photos from magazines I find to be cool or inspiring. They piled up so now it's time to organize them. The plan is once a week to create a new page in "the book". Craig Kelly and Dane Reynolds for week number one.

Secrets, secrets, are no fun......

Oh yes they are!!!! Made a quick drive up to the hill and scored. After we slashed all the stashes we were back in Encinitas by 2pm eating In N Out.

The forecast proved wrong and the clouds cleared by 6am. If you had the proper gear you could get as extreme as you wanted. A peak across the way from where we were.

Bumped into a few friends and ended up with a solid crew.


Okay I'll leave.

A little hiking never killed anyone.

Riding that bowl you see in the back ground of this photo is on my list of things to do.
