    Five guys take same photo for 30 years
    By Kelly Andersen

    (CNN) -- When five teenagers sat down and posed for a picture at Copco Lake in 1982, they didn't plan on making it a tradition. But that's what it became.

    Every five years for the past three decades, John Wardlaw, John Dickson, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney and John Molony have been meeting at the California lake and taking the same photo.

    The first photograph of the high school friends was just happenstance. Wardlaw, known as Wedge in the group, had a family cabin at the lake where the friends gathered in July 1982.

    Thanks for posting this, tb. Actually incredibly cool to see... to me, anyway. Spent more than a few moments looking at how each of them had changed over the years.

    Another great idea I wish I'd thought of doing way back when, and then followed up on.

    Yeah. Funny how that happens. I woke up one day and after getting a hair cut my hair was gray.

    Few years later I looked in the mirror and some ugly ole man was staring back.

    That's a pretty cool story and I love the transition of some of the guys from going shirtless to covering up their man-weight. lol

    That's cool. They are a lucky bunch of guys to be able to maintain their friendships like that through the years.

    They could do a "Weekend at Bernie's" type thing and exhume their pal every five years...
