Project Rwanda Ride with Leslie and the Bretts

This weekend we rode the Project Rwanda Benefit – the Fifty Mile Ride – in Orange County. We hooked up with some great people, hit some hills pretty hard, and had a great time. Brendan and I were hoping to meet up with our friend Lucas, but couldn’t find him. So, we started the ride…

24 Hours of Pain with Robby the squirrel

Idyllwild isn’t a very big town (around 3500 people), so it’s not hard to become a local celebrity. Siren was in the comics 2 weeks in a row, so I think we’ve made it! Fortunately, i’m a fox and Todd is the weasel – heehee! Robby is the recurring squirrel character who always gets made…

Pinkham Canyon Exploration

CONGRATULATIONS!!

OMG! I heard through the grapevine that my teammate Todd and his wife Bonnie had a baby this morning. I went to the shower yesterday and we thought she wasn’t due for a couple weeks – but it happened. So here’s to the new Siren team member and congrats to an awesome couple – you…
