FIRE IN NEWBURY PARK
Back to the TOP

A couple of weeks before Christmas on 9 Dec 08, a fire broke out in Newbury Park late-afternoon.  It was north of the intersection of Reino and Old Conejo Road (see A on the map) on the north side of the 101 Freeway.  They got the fire out by sunset with aggressive aerial water drops.  Map and pictures below.

Most of these pictures were taken from the hill in Knoll Park

THE BIKE GETS A LIFT
Back to the TOP

Finally found a motorcycle lift that fits in the garage and can be used by one person . . . made by Kendon, the same people that make the stand-up bike trailers.  When not in use, this lift just stands up and stores against the wall with a very small floor footprint.  This is an air-over-hydraulic lift so it can be raised manually with the hydraulic pump or using an air compressor.  There are 3 locking positions.  It has a stainless steel tool tray that fits in one of two positions on each side of the lift and a frame jack to raise the front or rear wheel for easy maintenance.  Kendon Web Site

Well after 10 years or so, Wendy finally broke down and bought a new car . . . yes, 128,000 miles and her '97 Hyundai needed a rest.  She went to Ladin Hyundai to look at pricing on a new car and they had a Sonata in her color with the options she wanted . . . they really did make her a great deal.
