Ride to Flat Top!

I made it to flat top on my bike. Well not up the mountain. But all the way up DeArmoun, Upper DeArmoun, Toilsome hill, and Blamho to the knoll! That was my goal for the summer. ... pics

Rollerblading in the rain with Oakenfeld

Remember that covered rollerblading spot? Remember Oakenfeld? Remember Katya? God it was fun! ... pics

Got Moose!

|
After 3 months of trying in a state packed with moose, I finally got a close up moose picture. And yes dad, I snuck up and sprinkled salt on its tail in order to catch it :). Then I rode thousands of vertical feet up and down O'Malley only to fall later on a 10 vertical foot hill. Good road rash for the telling. ... pics

Half Assed

The fly by night club has half planes sticking out of wierd places. Check it. There is a car repair shop downtown that has a similar motif. I should go get pics of it and do an anthology titled, "Half Assed" ... pics

Just a good day

|
This was just a good day. First we died Wally's bright red troll hair...redder. Watched O'Brother Where Art Thou on divX;). We went for a bike ride later and saw a retarded migit parade...on lawn mowers. It was weird. Throw in a purple tuxedo and a cigar or two and you have some freaky Italian cinema. Rayme, Katya, Miah, and Olivia gathered forces for a rave featuring DJ Dieselboy. It just ROOLED! Except they only let people w/ a press leash in w/ cameras. So, I have no pictures. I'm think I'll make a rave site just so I can take a camera w/ me or maybe I'll smuggle one in next time. We danced till 3am then had breakfast. I'm watching Groove right now so this is particularly poignant... pics

Babysitting. Well Not really babies anymore

|
I babysat for some kids I used to watch a lot in highschoool. They sure have grown. Cheryl is doing well and is happily married to Mike. They have a nice house and the kids seem happy. It was good to see them again and bike ride time soon... pics

Moose's Tooth Run

|
Wally and I have offically named this ride Moose's Tooth run(Chester Creek Trail from UAA to Westchester Hill, to Moose's Tooth and home). It's great for the things you see: the gorilla's on C-street, a shopping cart in the creek, and some skaters jammin' on a ramp in minnesota. Plus, it ends in beer! ... pics

Moose's Tooth 5th Anni

|
Mooses Tooth 5th Anni party. Anniversery Red Beer (Mmmmmmm!). And the Photon Band live. Who could resist. I had a blast dancin', but I caught a cold :) ... pics

Holy Canolli Gorilla Statue!

| | Comments (1)
The pictures are out of order. Deal. There are the coolest Gorilla Statues where Chester Creek trail meets C st. I think they like me :) I'm covering a different job position and have been seated with a number of ladies. Kati says, "You can't cook canolli." I say, "I can cook canolli". I cooked canolli. Now she's supposed to come back with some canolli of her own. When will we see it?... pics

Missed fox, macro mode, russian orthodox church, and the port

|
The first two pictures are of a Red Fox I saw in the middle of town. You can't even see the fox in the picture, but it was there. Wally and I spent a beautiful ride down by the port, and saw a moose ont he way back. Note failed moose pictures. Noticing the trend. I had the camera in macro/close range mode most of the way. Doh! ... pics

Fleeting

|
Just some pictures from a fleeting day. Everyting is still Jerry-Springer style, but I met a cool chiquita name Laura... pics

Hanging with Miah and a failed attempt at a Girdwood Forest fair

|
The thing that was bothering me is still bothering me. I have this sense of wanting to get out of town. So I go spend $400 on a 4 season tent (American Spending Compulsion Disease). And by the way it is to complicated for winter conditions and clothing. Hung out with Miah and parrot before I got my wish. I got out of town to the Girdwood Fair. The idea was meet up witha group of friends and go for a ride through/across Johnson pass. We never met our party and it was a dark, cold, rainy, mucky forest fair. Don't even try for a moral... pics
