Knott’s Berry Farm Windseeker


I don’t go on rides like the Windseeker at Knott’s Berry Farm. So, while waiting for my more adventuresome family members who do, I took this snap with my iPhone 3Gs.

This photo was selected and published by the Los Angeles Times as their “Reader Photo of the Day.”

Pismo Beach on a Husqvarna 360 Sportsman. c. 1972

71 Husky - Pismo Beach

My friend Jeff snapped this photo of me cresting a sand dune at Oceano Dunes on my 1971 Husqvarna 360 Sportsman in the summer of ’72 shortly after we graduated from high school.

The 5 1/2 miles of beach and the sand dunes of Oceano Dunes is the only California State Park where it’s legal for vehicles to be driven on the beach. Of course, I got a ticket for popping wheelies on the beach in excess of the speed limit… Wheelies were something that Husky did with ease!
