New Plates

Had to get license plates for the Blue Geo
It a "SHARE THE ROAD" plate.
The funds go to "Cycle Oregon" and "Bicycle Transportation Alliance"
Its only $10 more for the set, and the best of all its
a one time cost, it is not every time you renew the tags.
So, I haven't come up with the words for this acronym.
F E J A - For Every Jumping Ahead.
That not very good.
Any ideals.

The Blue Geo

Been looking for another Geo Metro, to replace Red one.Would like a four door, but none around right now, so I pick this one around the corner on Pine Grove, for a song and a dance, the motor and trans seem realy good, some small leaking to fix.But the carpet is really bad, and the inside is pretty dirty, and it needs a pair of front tires.I have already found a replacement driver seat and pull the old rug out.Should have this all done by April, just in time, I hear that gas prices are going up, this spring and into summer, this would be a good time to sell the Red Geo rag top.For the miles on it, it runs pretty good, 165,000 miles.

Move Night

Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol
Rochelle and Dan went out tonight (4:30) and caught this move.
A good move and lots of action and a good ending.
A little long over 2 hours.
A good one to see if your looking a good one.

Off and Running Again

And up date from 2011 and my running.
I did four 5K races and one Duathlon.
I started training after Thanksgaving 2010, I think I could just jog about 1/3 of a mile with out stopping.
And the first race was in April and I ran it 30:42.
And I seem to get slower after that.
And the Duathlon, it was 13 mile mountain biking and then you get off and run 5 miles, this about did me in, but I finshed, 2:36:20. Not sure this will happen again.
So the plan is to do four 5k and get my time down to 29 minutes.

The Great Amazing Cache

The Great Amazing Cache July 2011.
They had this great caching event in Central Point, Oregon.
Had lots of placex and trophies
And had a 15 stage Multi-Cache.
You had to find all find 15 legs whitch had one number in each find, to make up a coordinate, at the end you had to put together all the number and find the last spot or box.
There was about 50 people that show up.
I joined up I-seek 1 and I-seek 2 as a team, and did pretty good.
We went after the avage time it took to find and finish and complete.
We need to match 1 hour and 13 minutes, our team came at 1 hour and 24 minutes, so we came in 2nd place.
There was a young couple who showed up with no GPS, so the guys that was running the thing set they Cell phone up so that there could go and play.
They had a great time for the first timers do this Event.
