Book Report Time "Sahara"


By Clive Cussler

A Dirk Pitt story, almost the best I read of Cussler's.

Great story, with lots of action and as will as the history side of his stories that He throw in to keep you interested.

Now if you saw the move you think the the book would be a re-run of that.

Not in this case at all. The move only touches on about quarter of the real story.

So reading the book is like see and all new story.

I gave it 4 starts out of 5.

Nugget Butte

Saturday April 4 I hiked to two geocaches above the city of Gold Hill, Oregon.
It took me about 2.5 hours to get this.

The hike to the "Not There Yet" cache is on top of a knobe about .75 miles from the parking area.
This a link to cache page.
Not There Yet

The view north is up I-5.
If you look close you can see the Rock Point bridge in the center.
Most of the boys from both families have jump off of the thing.
I just dive under it. LOL

Link to the cache page.
Nugget Butte

The big fields in this picture is the Del Rio farms.
Not to many years ago this was a very big pair farm.

It now the Del Rio Winery.
A 100+ acres of grapes.

The picture south is of both table rock mountains and Mt. McLaughlin.

Maty the Tri-Pawed Disc Dog

This is a Travel Bug coin, that I pick up in a geocaching. The coin travels around to different places collecting miles, and some are to travel from one place and back home.
Most get lost along the way.
Maty TB coin suite.
The Link.
The Three Leg Dog
Maty is the Humane Society of Central Oregon's goodwill ambassador. She visits schools, groups and community events as a key member of the shelter’s humane education program.

When Maty's not visiting schools and groups, teaching them about responsible pet care, animal safety, and many other animal-related topics, she's busy demonstrating the "abilities" of a disabled dog.

Maty is also well-known for her amazing feat of catching Frisbees high up in the air - with only 3 legs! She is the first 3-legged dog to qualify and compete in two Skyhoundz Worlds Canine Disc Dog Championships. Her spirit and determination inspire those with or without physical challenges of their own.

Maty’s been known to dress in costumes that play off her missing leg such as a peg-legged pirate ala Johnny Depp and a surfer dog that survives a shark attack. She’s always willing to go paw-to-paw with four-legged dogs in competitions like Frisbee, skijoring, fastest runner, best trick and fastest eater..

Wherever Maty goes, she gets lots of attention and affection. For those facing the decision of amputating their companion animal’s leg, Maty’s abilities provide hope during a difficult time. She’s an inspiration to everyone she meets!

I was after a geocache at the very top of the mountain.

There is 3 take off points.

April 1

I born in 1957 on April first in Vancouver, Washington on Tea street.

Thats that.

Also on this day, I started geocaching, 6 years ago.(2003)
On April 1, 2003 I found the 1st caches in Medford, called Thistle Stump.
Also 1744 finds.
Also 73 hides.
Also 113 first to find.

Thats about it.

Also today I had to go to DMV to renew my drivers licenses.
So I get the number and I'm setting there, and called out my number, it was 52.
That is my age, also, LOL, weird.
