About the Fogelquists

We’re a little family living in Scotts Valley, California.  Our names are Donna and Larry… and our two boyze are Spencer and Jack.  We also have a cat named Heddi.

Spencer is our youngest at 20 years old.  He’s a rather accomplished lacrosse player but now is drifting into coaching and being a referee.  He also refs football.   Spencer enjoys horticulture and is studying to be a physical therapist.

Jack is the oldest son and is well known in mountain biking circles.  He’s a competition slopestyle rider sponsored by Banshee Bikes.  He also plays the guitar, produces, photographs and edits videos (many of which will be highlighted here) and is recently getting into photography.  He is also studying to be a mechanical engineer.

Donna is the mom and is a ridiculously awesome cook… the rest of us are very lucky to have her experiment on us.  She is also a very active hiker as she hikes with her many hiking groups on the local trails.  She enjoys backpacking, jigsaw puzzling and is pretty awesome at everything she does.

Larry is the dad.  He’s grateful that everyone puts up with him.  Currently he’s a real estate agent however he used to be an engineer.  And you know what they say… you can take the boy out of engineering but you can’t take the engineer out of the boy.  So sometimes he’s a bit annoying.  Larry has many interests… probably too many.

We have five cars, two refrigerators, nine bikes and one television.  I guess we’ve got a bunch of other stuff too but this was the first that came to mind.

Enjoy the blog.  We’re flattered that you’re here.

Oh and we also have an old family website too… It was mostly populated when the boys were around ten or so… maybe a little later.  Anyway, I put that site together from early tools and raw html code… Things were primitive back then and now I’ve forgotten how to update it using the old school web environments… Website design and development is a kinder, gentler world now but the tools are incompatible.  So the site has become kind of like a time capsule of that era of our little family.  Over time I’m gonna see if I can migrate that site to this one but that’s a ways in the future.  Anyway if you’re interested, the site URL is http://www.fogfam.com.  Go check it out… there’s lots of stuff there.  Some of it is even fun.

  1. Donna and Larry! This blog is wonderful. I’m so glad to have met you both and to have made it onto your blog as quick little memory from your trip 🙂 I hope the rest of your hike was amazing.

    I was wondering if you wouldn’t mind sending me the original photo of Sam, Isaiah, and I! I would really appreciate it.

    My email is caurihammer@comcast.net 🙂

    1. Hey you wild woman… I sent that photo by email a long time ago but never got a response from you. Did you ever get it. I can send it again if you want.

      I hope all is well with you and the gang.

      Larry and Donna
