2020 Annual Birthday Walk

When: Sunday February 9th 2020, 9am
Where: Torrey Pines State Reserve
12600 N Torrey Pines Rd., La Jolla CA 92037

Meet at picnic tables/group hike area for a group picture, donuts, waters, and pick up your hats. We usually start hiking by 9:30am.

Every year in honor of Kenny’s Birthday we hike one of his favorite spots. This year we are selling Kenny inspired hats to wear on the hike. If you knew Kenny well, you’d know he always left you by saying ‘Have fun, don’t be good’ – which was his way of saying Go out and live… explore, get dirty, find adventure, and let lose a little!

Kenny’s Travels

The following pictures are from Kenny’s numerous travels, including Vietnam, China, Costa Rica, BOSS survival school, New Zealand, and many back-backing trips with good friends and family.

And there is no doubt that he touched hundreds of people along the way…
