L.A. World Naked Bike Ride

The Los Angeles World Naked Bike Ride took place on June 11. I had three cameras, each one shooting a still photo every five seconds. One camera was mounted on the handlebars, facing forward; another on my helmet facing backwards, and the last one also facing backwards, but mounted on the rear rack of my bike. That camera takes good video, but only 5 mp photos, so those turned out to be a lot lower quality than I had hoped for.

The complete set of photos is here. These photos are on Flickr, so in order to see them, you must...

  1. Have registered an account at Flickr (it's free and uses your Yahoo ID).
  2. Be logged into that Flickr account.
  3. Have your Flickr safe search settings turned OFF (here).

Burglary Suspect Arrested After Pursuit

On 08/10/2016 at approximately 0825 hours, DHSPD officers responded to the area of Hacienda Avenue and Tamar Drive in Desert Hot Springs regarding a reported vehicle burglary. The caller reported that he caught a subject burglarizing his vehicle and the suspect then fled the area on foot with the victim in pursuit before losing sight of the suspect. Officers arrived in the area and located the suspect running in the 12800 Block of Miracle Hill Road. The suspect continued running from officers and subsequently forced his way into a nearby residence. Officers then surrounded the home. At that time the suspect exited a side window from the home and attempted to flee again and was apprehended by officers in the back yard. Gabriel Gallegos (21) was arrested and later booked into the Riverside County Jail in Banning for charges including Penal Code 459 - Burglary 1st Degree, Penal Code 488 - Petty Theft, Penal Code 148 - Resisting Arrest.

Camp Photos From This Weekend

This past weekend I went to the northern California CMEN gathering. I had never been to this gathering before. This was its third year. The location was about midway between Reno and Sacramento. Some photos of the campground.

Cabin 38 (2954)
My tent was behind this cabin
. You can see it poking out on the left.

The Densest Camping Area (2990)
This is the most crowded camping area I could find
. Can you see the tents? This is at the eastern end of the camp. My tent at the western end was almost a mile away.

Pink Union Jack (2962)
You know I want one of these
.

Nobody Crushes Their Boxes (2993)
My volunteer job was keeping one particular building neat and clean
. Allegedly, four other people had signed up for the same job, but somehow it was always me who washed the floor or crushed the boxes for recycling.

The complete set of photos is here.
