Been reading Mountain Bike Bills blog as he is currently in Hawaii. Also been reading the flat tire blog and he
resides in Hawaii as well.
Nice redwood forest to hike and bike.
You have to
love a place where fruit trees grow wild.
Just any excuse to post some old photos of my time there.
For such a small place, they have every ecosystem anyone would want. Desert, tropical jungle, pine forest all within a short distance of the other. Elevation and which side of the island is the key to what is going on ecosystem wise.
If there are any Hawaiian's out there that want me to include some of their favorite trails on Fat Tire please leave a comment.
The Limbaugh Monster and the Presidents DaughterI am thinking about writing some of my own children's stories for the child my wife and I are having next month.
I remember stories of monsters and princesses when I was a child. Why not tell a true story instead? How Rush Limbaugh attacked Chelsie Clinton when she was a child on a daily basis comes to mind. Moral of the story is words alone can never hurt you.
Vikings and SaintsBoth teams won by 31 points. Should be a good match.Too bad cardinals and cowboys. Retool and try harder next year.
New HeaderI changed my header. I write computer code, which is probably why I have had a fondness for the photo. The term loop has a double meaning for me.
California woman drowns while snow skiingThis is another wtf news story. A california woman drowned in a creek while snow skiing in Colorado. Apparently it was a guided helicopter trip. Her helmet got caught in some stones in a creek and she drowned. WTF!!!??
Where was her guide! Why couldn't she just get out of her helmet!!?? Just doesn't sound right.
