The Time Ranger

ElectionsVoteHope you’ve all recovered from the SCV Cowboy Fest last weekend. We’ll have to follow up with our own trailride into our own Western lore. We’ve an interesting trek ahead, filled with the stuff that makes history: gunplay, infidelit(more..)

ElectionsVoteReally, I suppose a big part of what we do on these treks is to constantly unearth wonderful cocktail party trivia. We’ve got a doozy for you this morning about how a piece of Santa Clarita is up on the moon, smiling at us. Like, right now. W(more..)

ElectionsVoteWe’ve a most interesting trek ahead, dear Santa Clarita friends, including a long look at the man without whom there’d be no Sunday trail rides — Arthur Buckingham Perkins. C’mon. There’s Indian pharmacies, America&rsqu(more..)

ElectionsVoteWe’ve an interesting trek ahead, what with dime-a-gallon gas and sign wars with Palmdale. There’s horse thieves, junk food moguls and one of the darkest days in our history. April 5th marked the anniversary when four California Highway Pa(more..)

ElectionsVoteYou’ll have to excuse me, but I am plumb enthusiastic over our trail ride. I think it’s going to be rather epic and unique. Next to Buffalo Tom overturning a train in 1928, we’ve got the second worst train robbery in SCV history. T(more..)
