LOTS OF SUNSHINE ... LOTS OF SNOW: Part 2


The trail continues ...

From Part 1:

From Grenada to Missouri ... back and forth!

The two moms had already become friends. It was not long before the two sons sealed the friendship when Cruz began vacationing with his mom in Grenada.
The friendship between Shemi and Cruz took off somewhere around 2004. What we are sharing with you on these TrailSpots (T-Spots!) pics and video posts, are some of the fun times that these guys have had as they grew into young men.

LOTS OF SUNSHINE ... LOTS OF SNOW : Part 1




From Grenada to Missouri ... back and forth!

The two moms had already become friends.  It was not long before the two sons sealed the friendship when Cruz began vacationing with his mom in Grenada. 
The friendship between Shemi and Cruz took off somewhere around 2004.   What we are sharing with you on these TrailSpots (T-Spots!) pics and video posts, are some of the fun times that these guys have had as they grew into young men.    

From the early days in Grenada, we take a peek into some adventures in the sun and sand.  Then we follow them as Shemi moves to Wisconsin to continue his studies.   
Let's have a look as Shemi experiences his first white Christmas, while also trying his hand at ice-skating and snow-tubing.   The guys seem to have as much fun in the snow as they do in the sand!

In Part 2, we take a look at some more holiday pics and video action from Minnesota.  The snow puts their skills to the test.  
Happy New Year to Shemi and Cruz!   Here's to an enduring friendship that spans the distance from the Caribbean to the U.S.!

Now let's see what these guys have in store for us!  Let's move!

2007 ... early days on Grand Anse Beach

Under the breadfruit tree

Racing on the beach

Up in the sea-grape tree

Making friends with Jacko, who lost his troop during Hurricane Ivan 

Message in a bottle; names, pics, location, the works ... then into the sea!! 

Cruz and Shemi in Carriacou

Off to school ...

Christmas in Kansas

Hanging out at the mall

Ski-boots?

A little shopping!

We three kings?

A little posing ... guy style!

Getting ready to skate ...

Shemi's taking off ...

Part 2 is coming right up and the snow is putting on a good show too!  Here's a peek at the action that's coming up!

LOTS OF SUNSHINE, LOTS OF SNOW ... A Sneak Peek!


Our next and most likely last post on TrailSpots (T-Spots!) for 2015, will take us from the sunshine to the snow.  
Some island guys who became best buddies, through the enduring friendship of their moms, cross the borders to share their years of fun with TrailSpots fans. 
They have adventured in the warmest and coldest places!

Look out for at least two really cool pics-packed posts, really soon!


Hiking through the Grand Etang Rainforest, Grenada


Ice-skating in Kansas City, Missouri 

More 'Lots of Sunshine, Lots of Snow' ... 
coming up really soon!

MOST POPULAR POST FOR 2015: A.I.M. for Hardcore Caribbean, 2015



Now, you might be inclined to ask "How did a 'gym' become a trail-spot?"  The answer to that question is that 'A.I.M. is not a gym; it is a community."

This is a place full of good energy.  People of all shapes, sizes and abilities, come together, to keep a commitment to themselves.  That commitment is to attain and maintain a state of physical health and discipline, mental focus, psychological wellness and even spiritual encouragement.  No effort goes un-applauded.  
There is a lot of activity at times and then there is quietness sometimes.  Many have called the studio, " a home away from home".  I certainly do.  

It is a space where persons learn to manage their own health programs, because of the vast experience, qualifications, passion and insistence of its founder, D. Lang. .  The studio is also affiliated with other health professionals whose input is sought as needs arise.
A.I.M., acronym for 'Athlete In Me' is the realized dream of an individual who wants others to manifest their own dreams, from health to wealth.  
A.I.M.'s motto/question is 'What's your target?' 
Around this time especially, all those who are willing and able to take on the challenge will answer that question with "Hardcore Caribbean 2015!"  The team is a force to be reckoned with!  



Frequent visitors to 'Trail Spots (T-Spots!)  will know that we are avid followers of  'Hardcore Caribbean'.  One of our 'T-Spots' crew has been participating in the military-style event for a few years ... so obviously we are huge fans of 'Hardcore Caribbean'.  It's a hot spot!

Take a peek at some of the on-site training that never stops at AIM Fitness Studio.  There is a pic link to the AIM spot in the side-bar. Check it out for more action.
A whole lot of sweat and tears that takes place on and off-site as well.  The AIM Hardcore team trains anywhere and anytime; rain or shine!

Here we go to the roof-top of the studio for a sample session!
D. Lang. rolls that tractor tyre up the stairs and the ladies follow.  
As you'll see, those monkey bars swing you into some amazing power positions.  Even heavy chunks of coconut tree trunks get you pumping!
Awesome moves every which way!  
Let's get moving!
