In 1982, five teenagers hiked a seemingly insignificant photo that settled into a long tradition of true friendship.

It all started near a Copco lake in California, and now every five years for the past 30 years, John Wardlaw, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney, John Molson and John Dickson have met, sitting on the same bench and sitting in the same place.

They call it “Five Year Old Photo” and invite us to watch them “lose their hair and gain their forehead, gain and lose weight.”

Friends say that without this picture, there is no way for them to be together.
