Mount Shasta 4th Of July Community Fireworks Fund

I lived in the Mt. Shasta area, and neighboring towns at various times in my life since 1977.  Before I went there, I had a vivid dream about a woman and a mountain. The next day I was invited to lunch at a friend's place and an Israeli kibutznik was there. After a few hours conversation, he mentioned he was thinking of going up to Mt. Shasta, because there was a woman who wrote an esoteric book, and he wanted to meet her. (This is a whole other story though)
I immediately offered to pay for the entire trip, if we left the very next day! He agreed!  Thus began my love affair with that area.

Electric school trike

Our daughter is now going to the local public school since we live almost 2 hours round trip to city center, which is where the private school she last attended was. Now she gets to ride in her daddy's e-Trike which he developed as a R & D research project with former Mayor Edward Hagedorn.

It's still going strong and now we use it to take our daughter and her friends to school everyday. We only live 5 minutes by etrike away from her school. Several of the her friends ride with her everyday and we pick up more kids as we go. It makes 3 round trips per day, as Alysha likes to come home for lunch since we live so close.
Alsyha is a lucky girl. She gets to share this great ride with some of her friends. They are all amazed how quiet it is and there are no awful diesel or gas emissions to smell.


Here is a short video I too a in 2012 of the etrike scooting up Puerto Princesa National highway at 75 kilometers per hour.
