When Tahoe adventures are getting to be to much it’s time to take a break. I love it!

Me, Gabe, his wife, and some friends around the campfire on a camping trip. Its always great to getaway for a week and relax. Nothing to worry about except who is making the food, but that wasn't a worry either because I like to cook.

Kiley, Amanda, Gabe, and a friend riding on our 4 person inner tub. Our favorite thing to do when we are boating is inner tubing. Its a lot of fun and gives some really good laughs.

Me riding my uncles Waverunner, that thing was the fastest one I've ever been on. It was a small family camping trip. Not my favorite lake/reservoir but it works.

A picture from that epic road trip we have talked about before. This one is Me, David, Amanda, Me and Amanda's Dad, and another family member in Arches National Park. That was a great National Park. Utah has great National Parks. Get out there and see some!

Me, my Dad, Gabe (not in the picture), and a couple friends on a guys trip to Don Pedro Lake. That day was a lot of fun. Getting away even for just a day is great to recharge from the stresses of life and have some fun.

Happy Father's Day from all of us at Helios Adventures! Dad's hold a special place in our hearts, without your guidance, lesson and encouragement we could not become the men and women we are today. Thank you for everything that you do.

Me, David, Amanda, and our family on, in my opinion, the best road trip we ever took covering a few states, a few national parks, and a few other things. Seriously if we can give any advice it would be to get out there and make memories with your family. That is something that will be with you forever and something that will always make you smile. Epsically the funny stories that come with a long road trip.

A view from the summit, sitting at 3940 feet elevation. It was a good hike at mount diablo. Second year in a row I've hike for my dad. It's nice to get a little closer to him for his birthday, I'm sure he is having a good party up there. I'm going to need a taller summit next year! -

Kiley doing a little horseback riding. Riding is a lot of fun and if you get the chance on one of your adventures we recommend it. Also, you can get some funny stories sometimes.

Because it is National Police Week we thought we would share a photo from when Mike attended a Police Academy. Its something he is very proud of and something that molded him into the person he is today. He graduated with that class in 2009 and eventual choose a non sworn position with a law enforcement agency. Everyone here went on to different things in life, but they will always have those great memories.

All of us at Helios Adventures would like to thank all those in Law Enforcement for everything that you do.

"Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God" - Matthew 5:9

Today is National Peace Officers Memorial Day and the start of National Police Week. According to the Officers Down Memorial Page there was an increase in Law Enforcement officer deaths from 2015 to 2016. Law Enforcement not only needs, but deserves our support and respect. They put their lives on the line every day and give up so much to protect and serve everyone in this nation.
Today we honor those who gave everything to protect and serve. Thank you for your sacrifice, words can never convey our appreciation for what you do.

Mike and Gabe relaxing on a camping trip at Don Pedro Lake. Its a great lake because of how big it is and if you book your camp site early enough you can get one on the water which is really the only way to camp there in our opinion.

I like to have a cold drink waiting for me when I get back to my truck from a hike. Nice to have a little reward waiting. This time I went with a @killcliff. A delicious recovery drink.

Mike (he is taking the picture), Gabe, his wife, and a friends of ours, on a random day trip at lake Tulloch (technically I think it is a reservoir) but most refer to it as a lake. That was a fun day of just relaxing and a funny story about a lady who wanted that spot we were in.

Mike and his Dad at Lehman Caves in Great Basin National Park. One of his favorite trips. It was a long road trip across a few states, a few national parks, and a few other things. Just one of the many good memories he has with his Dad.

Mike and Gabe tubing. Always fun to fit two people on a one person inner tube. O'Brien Screamers are our favorite tubes to use.

Tough Mudder was a fun event! It's best when you bring your friends with you because your going to need the help and the encouragement. But if you don't there is always other people willing to help you as you can see those guys helping Gabe up that wall.

Who doesn't like a little salty and sweet snack? Halfpops are a great snack for any activity or time of the day. We saw the caramel and sea salt flavor while browsing The Feed to create a box of goodies and had to add it. Halfpops are a great source of fiber and are completely gluten-free.

Kayaking in Monterey, CA. One of our favorite places to go. It has to offer in and around Monterey. The Kayakng is great there and if you willing to kayaking up and down the coast there is a lot to see.
