Jeremy Heminger in Space Suit Modeled in Anim8or

For several years in the early to mid-2000's I was very interested in 3D modelling. I generally used a free program called Anim8or however I did eventually move on to Blender...I still tend to use Anim8or because it's just really simple.

The disappointing thing about these images is that they are all low-resolution. I lost a ton of working files from this era.

Surrounding Lake Perris in Southern California near Moreno Valley there are a number of trails that are not exactly fun but, there are a few hills that are challenging and the scenery is rather nice if you enjoy wide open spaces. Often I will ride the various trails until I am nearly exhausted. Then I will ride downhill to the lake. There are restrooms with water fountains. The water is clean and surprisingly cold. Great for refilling your water bottle or camel backpack. After refilling I have on hot summer days taken a dip in the lake.

Santa Rosa Plateau - Sylvan Meadows Trail Head

This is, in my opinion, the best trail in the Temecula Valley Area. It's not my favorite trail but recently, it's the one I ride nearly every day. 

Located on the Santa Rosa Plateau near Wildomar this trail is long and spans a wide variety of terrain. It has parts that are challenging and parts that are just fun.

San Timoteo Canyon - Carriage Trail

San Timoteo Canyon

This is probably my favorite trail I have ridden in California thus far. It's a basic trail for the most part but, it is a very scenic trail. One very nice feature is the upper trail because it hugs the inside of the canyon up about 20 feet above the main trail. This upper trail allows for a rolling ride with a panoramic view of some beautiful orchards, , occasional snow packed peaks, some attractive hillside houses and and a lazy winding train-track. About half-way through the trail there is a lookout spot. It's a bit of a push to get to the top but, it's well worth it.

Southern California Beaches

The temperature in Redlands was predicted to be in the 110's over labor day weekend so, I decided to spend the holiday at the beach. There was a tropical storm off the coast but the surf was still just over chest on occasion. It was pretty powerful though. I got tossed around more than a few times and by the end of the weekend I was pretty beat up. But VERY satisfied. The water wasn't too cold, even without a wet suit. It never ceases to amaze me how in California the waves line up...break relatively evenly, and come in sets.

2017 Festival of Arts

The Redlands Festival of Arts is larger than the Redlands Art Walk Festival, but its a bit more contemporary. Not as much my style. I did enjoy myself. I had a great pulled pork sandwich from a place in Mentone (I can't remember the name of it, but Mentone is so small, that anyone interested should surely be able to find it easily). I had a Ritual Red beer and listened to music. The music was either more folk or 1960's whereas the Art Walk is often more mixed,.. well more rock. I would have expected more of a heavy metal scene because of the car show down State Street.

Hangar 24 Airfest

Hangar 24 is a local brewery here in Redland's California. Their beer is, ...(well, in my opinion,...its, "okay"). But, the people are always nice and I like the yearly air-show. There is a small municipal airport about 2 miles outside of town.
