Make Some Wooden Pumpkins for Fall #TigerStrypesBlog 30

Make Some Wooden Pumpkins for Fall #Autumn #Craft #TigerStrypesBlog It’s hard to believe that Fall is already here.  Living in the White Mountains of Arizona, this is my favorite time of year.  The colors of our oak and aspen trees are absolutely amazing and the weather finally says “see you later” to warm temps!  We always plan a UTV ride for “Fall Colors” as we […]

Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands #TigerStrypesBlog 8

Learn How to Make Some Troll Headbands I always loved playing with those pencils that had hair back in the day.  You would have the hair all messed up and then spin it between your hands, and the hair would go together perfectly.  I always wished I could do that with my own hair! ha/ha  When the Trolls movie came out, it really made me […]

Gila Bend, AZ (November 13, 2016) – The Redneck Editon Racing team headed out of the mountains on Saturday to get down the the Gila Bend area for the races on Sunday.  It was kind of weird to pull into a town, that made our Pinetop-Lakeside area look like a big city. 🙂  The AZOP crew was doing things a bit differently for this race, and […]
