A Volcanic Deathmarch

I've been threatening this for years, now it's on. September 16-18 we head for Mt. St. Helens to ride the Ape Canyon/Plains of Abraham/Windy Ridge loop and enjoy a midnight mystery hike through the Ape Caves.

Journey Down the North Umpqua

Another fun weekend on the Umpqua. Big thanks to Scoutmaster Milkshake for the motivation, Dan for the van and keg and Mace, Maitland, Gabe and even Dabby for maintaining positive, winning attitudes.

Conspirasteve Down Under!

Conspirasteve was kind enough to let me do a little light editing of his latest screed, here's a sneak preview:

I would like to offer congratulations to our brilliant, yet humble and possibly drunk readership. Because once more, left clicking onto our verbose and bravado filled blog has filled yours truly with joy and left our enemies dismayed. But enough I say. Enough! It is time to dispense with our much maligned soliloquy for the serious business of science!

While I, Conspirasteve, have been preoccupied with other endeavours, including, but not limited to: Extreme pogo sticking, heckling body surfers and yelling at concrete. A little known "clique" in the Conspirasteve Nation have been "tirelessly" investigating the above title. I have been informed that these experiments were conducted in a controlled environment, possibly a clean room, most likely a hotel room and a bathroom. Rumors of single malt scotch impeding the progress is being investigated. None the less! Our internal auditing is of no consequence to you, our patient yet highly stylistic readership. The time for truth or consequence is upon us!

While stationed in our previous headquarters in the Northern hemisphere (herein referred to as PHQ), there was some debate amongst various factions of the Conspirasteve Nation regarding which direction the toilet bowl would "swirl". Now that we are ensconced in the new and marginally improved HQ, located in the Southern hemisphere (herein known as the HQ.New Style), we are ready to put it to the test.

While the author of this esteemed blog has at times taken some extreme positions on various issues TRUTH will not be, and shall not be a position in which we shall "opine". There are some absolutes in this world, my insouciant yet heavily burdened readers! These are "body surfing bad, tacos good" type scenarios which are immutable. With these positions in mind, and without further ado, we at last present the findings of of the Conpirasteve Nation's "Mystery of the Toilet Bowl Revealed" findings:

Yes indeed, the toilet bowl swirls in the clockwise rotation here in the HQ New Style as apposed to the PHQ's standard counterclockwise swirl!!!

With these findings, we here at Conpirasteve Nation, deeply buried within the in the Bunker of Truth(tm), do heap congratulations upon EZ E's mom for correctly predicting the outcome of our month long experiment! To borrow from the local patwa: Good on ya mate.

Up next! : In-laws and out-laws, a case study in duality

Death March Down Under : The Final Walkabout

Last night much of Team Wreck was on hand to say goodbye to Beefa as he heads off to the southern hemisphere. A plan was hatched to follow him there in the summer of 2012 for the ultimate Deathmarch. So start saving your pennies, it's an expensive ticket but I guarantee it'll be worth it.

Also, follow Beefa's exploits on his new blog, Conspirasteve Down Under.

Tree Work

Cory and Wade came down to the farm to help us take out a couple of rotten oaks that were threatening to fall on the old barn.

I like the bounce in the last one.

Good job Wade, you're a pro.

I didn't realize it at the time but now I see they're negotiating the price. I like the body language in this one.

Trail Building Party

March 26-27 at Boat Farm. If it's dry there may be some backhoe action, if not we'll build in the woods. Bring shovels, rakes, BBQ food, beer and a sleeping bag. And a towel if you want to hot tub.

I have a blog.

The only good use for a squirrel, carrying Chewbacca into battle against evil nazis.

Ha ha, Washington.

Tear down the freeways.
