This is something that I really love to mess with in my spare time. I bought the sparkfun Arduino Uno Inventor’s kit about 10 months ago and still get hours of enjoyment trying to come up with ideas for little circuits. Continue reading
Kanan Dume Trail: one of my Favorites.! Trail Length: about 6.2 miles
This is a local trail about 45 minutes north of me up the PCH in southern California. I love this trail and go back to this one often. I recorded this entire ride on my new GoPro 3 Black edition( my quick thoughts about it here ). The entire trail with a few rest breaks took me an hour and 10 Continue reading
I wanna just give a quick review of the removable bike rack I have been using now for over a year. I purchased a Saris Bones 3 a while ago and still love this thing. I was a little hesitant at first from Continue reading
Trail Length: 7.22 miles
Here is another trail that I really like to do and that is fairly close to the Santa Monica area. The drive up the PCH and past the Pepperdine campus is beautiful. There are a lot of trail options within Malibu Creek State Park, and the map below is a fun, fairly easy ride to do. The park fee is $12 to park for day use. The mapped out trail below is fairly easy with only a few areas of uphill biking. There is a stretch of pretty rocky trail after the bridge crossing and Continue reading
Trail Length: 2.2 miles for what I mapped out
Essential Gear for Riding!
Hi everyone. I just recently went to a trail I had never heard of before located just a short drive up the PCH. I have lived in Santa Monica over 10 years now and never knew this awesome trail Continue reading
You may have heard of the meteor shower that goes by the name of Perseid. I know it is an annual event and that it is caused by the earth passing through the remnant trails of a comet named “Swift-Tuttle Comet”. That is all I know, and I even had to google to find the name of the comet. Anyways, here is a cut and paste of some more info on the phenomena: Continue reading
Summer time is awesome in California.! That single sentence is pretty much
the only thing you need to hear for an accurate summary of what it’s like
in this state for the summer months. So what better way to get out and enjoy
the California summer climate than taking a road trip up the PCH( Pacific Coast Highway).
The Plan: Continue reading
Hi all, This quick review is for an Led Flashlight I purchased a month ago. I never heard of this company or product until seeing a post on another page and I am glad I googled the name and found this light. I love gadgets, electronics in general, and just about anything with bright LEDs.
First Impression: When I opened up the box from Continue reading
I purchased these as an alternative to wearing my rather expensive Maui Jim polarized sunglasses out on the mountain bike trails. The Maui’s work very nicely but during cold weather months my eyes tend to water up pretty bad during quick downhill sections of the trails. You know what I mean. Too much cold air sneaks around the sides of normal sunglasses and hits the eyes. So I decided to purchase some type of goggle to try out. I went on a number of web pages and searched for hours before deciding to order these.
I placed the order for these back in mid March. Continue reading
