Rub Goldberg machine

The Rub Goldberg machine.
I saw this and thought is was pretty cool.
If you run it coup of time you'll see the mults of stuff laying around, just getting things dialed in.
Like the bunch of TV's.
Or the paint on there cloths.
And there running to be in the right place as the camera follows the machine.

Peak Cache Series

I started a cache series about a month ago.
In my MTB-ing, I come across a peak or two, so I'm thinking I should place caches on these cool places.
The fist one is about about 2.5 mile hike, and then a .25 mile up a steep hill to the top.
Mule Mountain Cache
But the digital camera is died after its rough life, so now pictures of my own.
And the past week I got out and place a cache up Birdseye creek, that had a great view of the Rogue Valley look into Grants Pass and Rogue River area.
Tail Hold Cache (peak cache #2)The name I gave it because of the tail hold on the top that the Yarder equipment hook there cables to, so they don't turn over when pulling log up the hill.
There logging in the area right now but, there be gone in 3 or 4 months.
I did place another cache that is a none peak, but is on a point of a hill over looking Birdseye valley.
It's called the Big Bald Spot Cache, over look this 50 acres of grass, going down a very steep hill side.
Again no pictures, but I'm looking at a digital camera that I can use on the MTB and for diving, called the Hero Camera.

Book Report, "The Mote in Gods Eye"

Book: The Mote in God's Eye.
Authors: Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle.
Printer in October of 1974.
This is a science fiction, space thing, were they meet some aliens.
The star cluster is called god's eye and a spot in it is the mote's plant system.
The aliens are called Moteis.
Very interesting story, with some battles and even a love story part were the captain and a beautiful scientist fall in love, not to bad, only about 3rd or 4th sub story.
Gets real interesting in the last quart of the book were the humans have to decide weather to let the Moties leave there system and to start anew, and the lies that must be uncovered.
