Hike Calendar for Memorial Day Weekend 2013


SPECIAL EDITION:

MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2013 HIKE CALENDAR

Hey Folks,

For 2 ½ years-plus I’ve been putting this out each week. A lot of you have probably come on the hikes I’ve led each Wednesday night and on weekends, but I’ll bet a lot of have no idea who I am.

In these almost 3 years I’ve taken you to over 70 different hike spots. I’ve been down a little sick for the last 6 months and recently had surgery to correct a non life-threatening but really annoying syndrome that’s been cutting into my being able to schedule fun events. I hope to be back up to my normal energizer bunny pace in 2 to 5 weeks.

Life can be really busy for all of us. I happen to be in the last 8 months of law school and for the next 8 weeks am out of the regular crash-course class schedule and on independent study. This basically means the school has run out of classes to teach me right now, so I’m on my own, having picked the subject of corporate monopoly law to master in 2 months. (YeaYYY!!)

Hiking keeps me from losing it and shoving my books in the paper shredder. Usually, the half hour a week it takes to make this calendar is all I have to communicate to my few hundred loyal subscribers. So you may not know what makes me tick.

Basically, you’ll recognize me on hikes as the guy carrying a little mini-guitar trying to herd cats while singing and climbing up some rocky trail to a waterfall or rock formations. I love scrambling on top of boulders at Eagle Rock and Vasquez rocks, slogging down the creek and over the mini falls at Cooper Falls or sliding down the chutes at Tar Creek.

Before I became obsessed with exploring nature I was a nerd in high school who dreamed of being the editor of National Lampoon, idolized George Carlin and just wanted to be class clown. I eventually half-majored in journalism and poly-sci in community college, wrote a lot of goofy underground newspapers, and got diverted somehow from goofiness to my current life of challenging the rich and powerful developers of L.A. who were trying to pave and destroy the remaining natural treasures of L.A. which I discovered while steadfastly avoiding my first college education. I built up a huge library of research on the natural cool-spots of L.A. and saw most of them saved, compared to when I started hiking in the mid 1980’s and most nature areas in L.A. were under siege. I and friends set up a coalition of activists and groups that sued, annoyed and eventually bankrupted the biggest developer in L.A. and saved the Ballona Wetlands, which is where I lead my Wednesday night hikes. Much of my stockpiled research I recently posted on the web:

When not hiking, studying, and recuperating from all that hiking and studying, I also post stuff about saving the world here:


Fast-forward to now, where I am planning my post law-school attempts to change the world. I’ve always been nuts about the rocky hills west of Chatsworth and so I plan on focusing some of my activism to save these, which happen to be the missing link in L.A.’s great Rim of the Valley Park system. Many of my favorite hike spots are nearby, so even though the area is 35 miles from where I live, I feel drawn to commute from my home in the Culver City and Westchester area of L.A. to help make this beautiful place accessible to all my buddies.

Here are some photos:


I hope to have a big announcement about my work in this area soon.

Anyway, enough about me for now. The weather this weekend is perfect for hiking and getting outside and leaving your troubles behind. I plan on being out there everyday enjoying the wildness and de-stressing with old friends and new friends.

Also…… check out my 20 favorite hikes here if the calendar has stuff you’ve already done!
