Chopper Campout 4, May 19th, 2012 Copperopolis California. Same location as the last 3 times, Old Corner Saloon. Flyer coming soon
Swap Meet: sometime in September, Sonora California. It will be at a different location this time.

Hope to see everyone this summer

Well the bike is one its way, somewhere in the Pacific still, and this i what I have planned as of now.
No real order, but this is what I have so far. On the other hand, might get completely lost and end up in India.

 Well, we went through almost 230 lbs of smoked pork, 25 lbs of pasta and 60 lbs of salad. We drained 3 kegs, and 2 cases of wine. Sold over 4000 raffle tickets, who knows how many drink and dinner tickets, and raised over $15,000 for Ruby and her family (unofficial count, some people still owe for their silent auction win). Thanks again to everyone who helped out, donated and showed up in support of Ruby and the entire Garcia family!

 First of 3 bands,
Ruby's grandpa, uncle and dad (Bill, Josh and Jason)

Ok, its almost here. We've been getting everything ready for the big event on Saturday. Collecting raffle and silent auction items. Ordering kegs of beer and cases of wine. Picking up pork, salad and dinner rolls.
We have something for everyone at this event. Tons of skateboard and motorcycle stuff. Almost every restaurant in the county gave us a gift certificate. Golfing, lift tickets and horse lessons. Gravel, firewood and tractor rentals, enough to remodel your front yard! Don't forget the salon's, clothing, massage and beauty shops that donated as well. This doesn't even begin to touch the amount of things we have for this event, hope to see you all here!
A huge thanks to everyone who has donated, and we'll see everyone at the Tuolumne Memorial Hall in Tuolumne City, 2pm-7pm this Saturday February 18th!

I hope the ship doesn't sink!

 Its gone! I won't see her for another 9 weeks until I arrive in Germany. The plan is to ride throughout Europe for four months this summer on the ol chopper. Got the pack filled with tools and spare parts, and will fly out in April to pick her up. An eerie feeling just leaving the bike sitting there in L.A. and just walking away from it!

I am not a hunter. I am a killer. Once you have killed you are a killer, not a hunter.


I pulled this quote from an interview I saw on TV this evening. It was about a new book that is out, which recounts several different stories from different people, all from the WWII era. Full article HERE
Kinda eerie hearing a man, old enough to be your grandfather, talking about this and his struggles with life after war nearly 70 years later.
