Pleasanton Ridge Hike

May 29th, 2011 by Jeremy

Christina and I hiked the Pleasanton Ridge and had a great time today.  We couldn’t have asked for better weather but I think we both got more sun than we intended.  I spilled some iced coffee on my shirt about 25 minutes into the hike if you’re wondering what is up with that.  I know who hikes with coffee?  Yeah Jeremy does and that didn’t work out so well for me.  About 40 minutes into the hike we ran into a couple and asked where “the top” was and they said if we hike to marker 19 we were “doing well” and that there were multiple “tops”.  As soon as I heard 19 I was determined to get there and Christina was a trooper because it was a pretty steep climb.  After a couple hours and a lot of cows, hills, sweat, and laughs we made it to marker 19!  I know it doesn’t sound like much to you but it was a long way and we encountered lots and lots of very steep hills to get there.  Any way, here are some pictures of our hike.

Dean and Deluca St. Helena

May 28th, 2011 by Jeremy

If you are ever in St. Helena, just outside of Napa be sure and check out Dean & Deluca.  The only thing I make sure and buy every time I’m there is Cock & Bull Ginger Beer.  I’m pretty sure it is the most manly soda a person can drink if that is what you are going for in life (me…not so much…I just love bold tastes).  I’m also a grocery geek and this is a great place to see how others are using their marketing skills in an upscale environment.  I mean a person like me isn’t going to buy a $50 flower pot cake but I’ll bet it is pretty good!  My mom bought me some of their Napa Blend Coffee and a coffee pour over maker which I’m sure I’ll blog about later (mmmm mmmm it is good).  Yes I also had some Cock & Bull with pizza that night and oh man is that stuff good!

Umigo Indoor Racing

May 28th, 2011 by Jeremy

Christina and I went to UmiGo Racing in Livermore tonight and had a blast. Their go karts get up to 45 MPH so even though it doesn’t look fast on the video just trust me, it is really fast. I got a chance to do this in Scottsdale a while back so when I heard they opened up an indoor track in the area we had to give it a try. Christina is always beating me at racing at the putt-putt places and has the best time doing it so I thought she would love kicking it up a notch or two. For the record I did win this time but I think she had the best time because she didn’t touch the brake and had to be rescued several times (my crazy woman). I also got black flagged because I kept the accelerator to the floor and would brake at the same time which they didn’t like, otherwise I would have done even better. Thanks to Gary for telling me about it, if you are in town you should definitely give it a try! I took some pictures with my cell phone camera which aren’t the best but I don’t think anyone looks that great wearing the helmets anyway. Oh and yes my pants were dirty, I was planting some new plants this afternoon with Tyler and didn’t get a chance to change them before my date. ;)
