Forest Home Christian Camp

 

This might leave a few mouths agape.  I was working at a Christian camp this past weekend.  And I’m pretty sure I didn’t even cuss!  It’s just a quick consulting job evaluating their food operation that came about via my old business partner.  I was actually up there a couple of weeks ago for the day.  That first trip I was in awe of the beauty.  And I knew Amelia would also really enjoy it.  They have a few full hook up sites for trailers, so why not bring the Airstream and the wife.  I could work multiple days while only commuting once.  The nice folks at Forest Home were totally agreeable to the idea.  It would be a role reversal.  Amelia would be out playing and I would be working.

Forest Home is located in Forest Falls.  It’s about two hours from our house, above Redlands in the San Bernardino Mountains.  And the big plus, the area has amazing mountain biking and we’ve never done any of it.  Hell, I haven’t even been to the San Bernardino Mountains/ Big Bear area in 40 years.  I guess I was too busy driving back and forth to Mammoth.

Pretty sweet gig when you can bring the family to this beautiful spot and work.

Amelia was stoked because her friend Katie was up in Big Bear for the weekend.  Katie’s friend Walt gets credited for taking the pics of the girls.  Role reversal, I was working.

All smiles, and why not, beautiful day, new dirt, and riding with friends.

Happy girls.

Mill Creek.  Forest Home is a huge property and the creek runs down the middle of it.

Queen of the Airstream.  It’s awful nice of her to share her expensive dog house with us.

I don’t know about you, but we never get tired of sunsets.

After work on Sunday we finally rode a piece of the Santa Ana River Trail (SART).  It lived up to the hype.  Next time we will do the entire SART.

When most folks think of Southern California they do not think of mountains.  Both the San Bernardino and San Gabriel Mountains are actually really rugged and steep.  Slides are a common occurrence.

Ain’t nature grand?

The next cover of Airstream Life?

 

Unfortunately the threat of snow made us bail a day early.  Come springtime we will be back.
