Cycling and marriage proposal
Don’t get any ideas that I’m getting married cause that ain’t going to happen. I am referring to a couple of cyclists that rode in here looking for water and a place to eat lunch before they headed on down the road. Julianne and Bjorn looked pretty worn out when they arrived after climbing the long hill from Prineville, OR. I gave them water and they plopped down to have lunch and take a relaxing break. They are both from Spokane, WA and they drove down to Walla Walla where they started their adventure. Then they cycled down to Crater Lake, OR which is quite a ride. I asked them what was the biggest thrill during their trip and they mentioned that it was at Crater Lake where Bjorn proposed to Julianne and she accepted. That is a day they will never forget. You can read more about it at their blog at dryearthandfloods.wordpress.com
Congratulations Julianne and Bjorn. May you have a wonderful life together cycling all over the country. They deserve a high five for not only their engagement but also for that fantastic cycling trip.
Discovered a pack rat
I popped my hood this morning and this is what I saw. I actually saw the rat as well as it was sitting cozily on his bed. I almost felt like grabbing him by the tail but I knew better then that. It was a big one too and scampered off to another section of my engine. Tomorrow I will head into Prineveille and see about getting something that I can kill the dirty bugger with.
I thought I would be leaving my camp hosting job at the end of September. Now they are asking me to stay for another week until October 6. The campground has been surprisingly busy for this time of year. Probably has to do with the GREAT camp host, but more likely it is due to the extremely warm weather. It has been in the 90’s three days this week and will be in the upper 80’s almost all next week. People still want to get out and enjoy this wonderful weather before the rain begins.
It will give me about a week to travel the 400+ miles to Fernley, NV to work for Amazon.
The votes are in
I would like to thank everyone for voting in the poll last week regarding the new look of Jimbo’s Journeys Blog. Out of 81 votes received, I have 77 (95.06%) in favor of the new look and only 4 (4.94%) in favor of the old look. It looks like the new look is here to stay. Thanks again for letting me know.
