I don't know who would be interested, but they're showing Bullit at the Paramount this Sunday afternoon at 2.

Lite on plot, big on action. Steve McQueen at his best. Possibly the greatest chase sequence in movies.

Not to mention the badass Lalo Schrifrin soundtrack. If you know what I'm talking about there, well you know what I'm talking about.

I haven't seen it on a big screen...um..lately...

I stopped through the Saloon last night for a bit and confirmed that we are all set for Moto Movie night on next Wednesday, (June 5) The plan is for some Romaniacs Hard Enduro footage.

I will be a bit late getting there since I have to work until 7:30, if there is someone willing to set up the projector and get things rolling shoot me a PM. If not Matteus said he would be able to get it going. I have some digital files that we can use but if anyone can bring it on DVD that would be great as it will be a bit better image quality.

Looking for future film possiblites I sent some e-mails to the folks who produced Dream Racer to try to get a copy.

I've also started and e-mail list for these movie events so shoot me a PM with your e-mail address if you would like to be added to the list.

Dang it, I wish I was going to be in town, that sounds like a ton of fun.

Speaking of work...

It's really beginning to suck. I had to do trail maintenance today...by boat!

This is the entrance to an old mill race that is paddle-able when the water is up.


At the confluence of another high water channel.


Miscellaneous view downstream...


Past the ruins of Hazard Mill...



The ruins are the stone foundation in the foreground. The windows are on a house in the background.


Trail maintenance time!
This is what I came to remove. Before...


after...


Then I paddled on down to the takeout.
It still needs to be moved some more but I'll need another set of hands...

Work sucks!

Rough job!!! No wonder you hate work! Might as well look all day at concrete walls with no windows since that looks no better! I think I need to help you with your job - you shouldn't suffer so much alone!
