I wish #pimpmyride was still around because I would submit @duaneballard's new toy. We look like absolute nerds on it, but this little #honda #silverwing600 is sure fun to run around on. #laugh #itsfunny #enjoytheride
Big thanks to Josh Allison ( @joshua8787 /@crybabycycles) for showing us how to fabricate a custom exhaust using a #biltwellexhaustkit.

#tbt - 1:16 pm last week: My phone started displaying voluntary evacuation notices and would continue to do so for many hours. I grabbed everything of importance, my camera gear, three sets of clothing for each of us, and at that moment I realized my family, our friends, and the surrounding communities could lose everything. That threat never occurred thanks to the fantastic people who fought the wildfire. ❤️ Here are some things that stood out for me:
* Our neighbors rule and pull together when shit gets real. * Watching total strangers be kind to one another is pretty awesome. * I've never seen so many handshakes, thumbs up, and high fives given to emergency personnel and law enforcement. I hope people continue to appreciate them on a daily basis. * Real friends do exist. * Family is everything. ❤️ 🌻 ❤️ #thankyou #loveyou #alwaysandforever #theshinyside #HolyFire
Mean mugging and sun bathing are a part of their daily routine. I wouldn't change a thing! #bff #shirleyrules #rickythedog #adoptdontshop #bestfriend

One million thanks to every person who helped with the #HolyFire in #lakeelsinore. The helicopters are currently using the lake to help extinguish the fire in Corona. Hopefully, today is the day that the danger ends and the heroes can go back home to their loved ones.❤️ @calfire @ocfaairops #thankyou #theshinyside #lakeelsinore #ca #wildfires #California
Yesterday was one for the books. The day started off what appeared as calm with a few fires on the mountains. Fast forward to two hours later and the smoke seemed as if it was turning like a tornado. There was a deep rumbled within, and then all hell broke loose. The sky darkened, smoke blanketed the neighborhood, the winds increased tenfold and awoke the beast. And let's just say he woke up grumpy and pissed off. I've never witnessed a fire move that quickly in my life nor do I ever want to again. The #holyfire sat at 9,100 acres yesterday morning, and this morning it's reported as 18,137 acres, and 5% contained. Our neighborhood remains safe, and we have never been in danger. I continue to think about everyone in its path and would like to wish the surrounding communities the very best. Stay safe. Lisa
Hello everyone, just a quick note to let everyone know we remain safe and sound. There's been no need to evacuate as our neighborhood is inland.  @duaneballard and I appreciate everyone's concerns, texts, and calls. We were in total awe of the aerial team yesterday. I snapped these photos about 200 feet from our front door as they were saving McVicker, Horse Thief Canyon, and the surrounding communities. Their efforts and bravery will never be forgotten. The Holy Fire remains on the mountains, and it appears to be heading towards the Ortega Highway and continues to head downhill. The planes are overhead once again, so hopefully, the helicopter pilots can rest from their overnight shift. One million thanks to ANYONE working the #holyfire and every active wildfire. Talk soon. Much ❤️ @calfire
I hope they can extinguish the #HolyFire soon. One million thanks to the air and ground support. ✌️❤️ 🌻
The Trabuco Canyon #holyfire is heading towards Lake Elsinore. Please be safe out there. 🙏
