    Hi! Each year when we get to our mission in mammoth we decide our plan of attack. Depending on the weather. Some years it has just rained so we go up over the top.. this yr it was very dry so we went up juniper to lake view and up skid mark! Yes up skid marks. Than down over the top to beachcruiseer yo mountain view to earthquake and downtown . either way it's a grind , but when you reach the summit ..it's 20180928_144030.jpg all worth it.. the best part about going to mammoth when the gondola is closed before snow skiing is that you have the mountain all to yourself. Its really pretty sweet.. thank you!

    The Main Lodge of the resort is at 8000 feet. The town is officially at 7880.....crazy that the top of Whistler in this photo is supposedly 7350.

    I don't have words for how inspirational you two are! Inspirational is almost condescending, because that's what you say about people who do the ordinary at age 66. You two are crushing it! And we all have a crush on you! :inlove: :thumbsup: :cool:

Your mugs seem to be everywhere, and everytime I see them I realize you guys don’t seem to age, and that is because it is odvious you are happy, positive, in love, and doing what you love! Climbing Mammoth Mountain! Why didn’t I think of that? Happy Birthday! The both of you are looking amazing!

    Once again the McG's rock! Happy Birthday and thanks for giving us great ideas to celebrate.
    I like how the comment "I want to be like you when I grow up," keeps appearing - who said you were grown up? Keep smiling and keep riding!

    Fantastic photo! So emblematic of your lives together. TFPU!

    I don't think much about what people besides my wife and I are doing. But when I see the life you McGs live, it does make me think. It makes me think that you possess all the riches that a life could provide: A solid partnership built around the great outdoors, recreation and giving to others. I'm bufuddled as to how it could be better than that.

    It was so cool to see you two and actually get to share some dirt. :thumbsup: I'll see you again, hopefully with my weezl next time. RUBBER DOWN, ROCK ON! :)



    Freudian slip! :cool:
