When John Wardlaw, John Dickson, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney and John Molony took a picture in 1982 of all five of them at Wardlaw’s family lake cabin, none of them knew they had just started a life-long tradition. This is a rare friendship which has survived for decades and now the group of guys are sharing their story of friendship with everyone.
During the summer of 1982, the five friends were hanging out at the family cabin on Copco Lake in Northern California. Dickson, or J.D. to his friends, set up his 35-millimeter camera on self-timer and snapped away. The photo shown here dated 1982 is the one they chose as their “vacation photo.” They boys were around 19 years old at the time.
