DAY 110: POINSETTIA ELEMENTARY

DAY 110: POINSETTIA ELEMENTARY
Date: Friday March 4, 2011
Miles: 2.0
Elevation Gain: 75 Feet
Time: 2 Hours
Difficulty:Donations
Reward: Sharing with the public that the Harbor Seals in Carpinteria need your help!
Description: I brought my son door to door.  This is good and bad!
Where: Ventura, CA
Directions:---
 A Secret Street Behind the School


**Thank you for the donations.  I collected a couple and a few more said they would mail it in.  I spoke to the guy from Sealwatch and he is on the Carpinteria City Council and I believe a retired attorney.  He suggested that I meet up with him, the head of the state parks and the Mayor.  I told him, hmmm... Let me raise some money first.  I have ideas and I hope to turn that in with some money to make it happen.  Sealwatch has the some beliefs that I have for these seals.  They have done an excellent job since 1988.  They never formed as a non-profit group and I don't think the should.  The money I raise for the seals will merge with Sealwatch for them to carryout the plan.  ***More to come...

  1. I think you need to spend more time and effort at home with your family rather than out hiking!!!!!

  2. ??Anne, have you viewed the blog? My family is often with me. Please note, if you are commenting on the tv show, Dr. Phil's producers made promises to my kids that were not kept. We were enticed to do the show based on the promise that my kids would go to Disney Land and my wife would receive a makeover. We agreed to act out and up to some degree but we never agreed to the blasting that we received. We were paid a small sum of money but we did not receive a makeover or a Disney Land Vacation. Call me if you have any doubt. We are good people doing good things and we were manipulated by Dr. Phil. Horrible!

  3. Hmmmm.. So wait a minute... your saying that Dr Phil contacted you and asked you to do the show? I think that hiking is fine.. kids need to get out and move too... so your saying your kids ALWAYS hiked with you before the Dr Phil show?? but you were asked to make it look like you were a bad dad.. grow your lawn, asked your kid to act like that ??

  4. Where do I begin... The lawn was overgrown. It had rained for about 10 days straight and we were in Cleveland and DC. If you look back on my blog, you will see that. When we came back, the weather was still winter like, for California and the lawn did get carried away. We were contacted by a producer. It just so happens it was the same producer that we worked with on another show. We decided "YES" because we were told that my wife was going to get a makeover and the kids would go to Disney. Two days later, they came out to the house and filmed all weekend. We then went on the show that Monday. It all happened so fast and I am ashamed for doing it because we really don't have those problems. As far as me updating the blog right before the Dr. Phil airing...negative. I have been to the Seal Sanctuary three times. Once with Alyssa and all three times with my son. If you count thru every post, Ayden has gone with me on about 40 of the 111 days. One reason why you dont see if on many of the hikes is because during the week, I will often hike right after work, right by my work. Yes, he looks happy because he is. We all are. We are upset with the show but more upset with ourselves to allow them to take it that direction. I should have stood up and told my wife I love her. I do love her and Dr. P was wrong for telling us that we would divorce. Visit back on day 1000, I assure you that we will all still be here :)
