It's the Whittaker neighborhood, think of it being sort of a analogous to an amalgam of 1970's NoPo and NW Portland without all the big apartments.

It never changes much in Whittaker. Lot's cool nooks and crannies to explore though.

Nice day to stop at the OMB ranch then ride over to the coast where it was 50 and sunny today.

Thanks for stopping by. You caught me doing something that most people claim I never do. I sold something. It is still 48 degrees here. We actually saw that bright thing in the sky today.

I dusted the ol' Magna off and got out for a short, spirited ride between chores this afternoon. That bright orange thing in the sky was very welcomed this afternoon!

Put a couple of outer tie rod ends on the little blue car this afternoon. Need to do the driver's lower ball joint tomorrow. Hopefully those three very visibly toast items takes care of the clunks we've been hearing up front.

OMB selling something Must be time to replace it with 3 somethings

Rode the S Jetty Road and instead of pulling into the 1st parking lot where there were 4 cars I went N to the next spot where there were only 3 for less crowdedness . Saw maybe ten people on a mile of beach on a beautiful winter day. What a state we live in...

Went north of Nashville with Schon. Have been down that road to Siletz a hundert times and today saw a small road going north (Green Mt Rd). Well, it took about 75 miles to come back out 8 miles down the pavement. Very nice, saw 65 deg on the super precise but not so accurate Austrian Thermometer. Lunch at the Slietz Biker bar was not bad.

Was depressing to see the bowl of cold soup that is our valley.

more on lights

While some of you were enjoying the sad excuse we have for a sun, I came up with another mount for the LED lights
