Born Charlotte Maureen Wilson in 1924 to Thomas Dalton and Bonnie Easter Wilson, Charlotte lived an amazing 97 years and leaves behind a legacy of love and optimism.
A look back at one of the most difficult years any of us have had to endure. What made it special and what made it great?
I was lucky enough to be able to take a week and bring my family to Durango, Colorado to relax and to ride some trails.
I took the family on a quick road trip to Durango, and we stopped on our first night in Flagstaff, Arizona.
On Father’s Day, I met with my Brother-In-Law Rick and we rode through his Walnut Creek neighborhood hills on the mountain bikes.
My Brother Pete and I have been riding together for a long time. It was a great break to be able to ride mountain with Pete. Rancho Canada Del Oro was the perfect spot!
My bike shop takes up a small amount of room in the corner of my garage. This is to facilitate all the other things I do there. Whether it’s making beer, entertaining guests, or wrenching on bikes, I need space to get that stuff done.
My neighbor recently got a new bike from his Brother-in-law. It’s a first-generation Yeti, and it’s awesome. He has been dying to get it out on the trails near our house, so I finally arranged the time and we got the kids together and headed out.
I’m taking a short break from posting to attend to a few personal matters. I hope to be back very soon. Thank you for your understanding and I look forward to seeing you out on the trails.
Kids are great, and I recommend them to anyone who can afford them. I’m fairly partial to mine, and I tend to give them a lot of leeway in terms of allowing them to have a full and rich childhood. I built them a playhouse, got them bikes, and now I am adding a spot in the backyard for them to put their bikes in the dry months.
