So I'm up to a few different things now.

Things I've Done: Adventure!
Things I've Seen: Pretty!
Things I'm Doing: Science!



  • Things I've Done
  • Packed everything into a truck and drove to Seattle.
    Unpacked everything except the motorcycle into storage.

    Hopped a ferry.

    Rode down the coastline.

    Rode up the forest.

    Rode into a silt bed going about 30mph.

    Laid up in Goldendale for a few days, a town with many churches and no porn shops or reasonable book stores.

    Hobbled back to town, went apartment hunting, and enrolled as a grad student in neurobiology. I ain't coming out for a while.

  • Things I've Seen
  • The Strait of Juan de Fuca.

    The Oregon coastline. OMG.

    Mt. St. Helens. OMFG.

    A wasp burying a caterpiller alive, presumably with her eggs inside.

  • Places NEVER to go
    - Mt. St. Helens Motel in Castle Rock, WA

  • What I've Been Up To

    Science!

    And more science!

    Science can involve: night vision goggles, a meat cleaver, and salamanders.

    Salamanders are goopy.

  • Things I Haven't Seen in a while

    The sun.

  • What's up next
    • A grad-level statistical mechanics cource from the physics department. Prediction: thorough ass-kicking will be received. By me.
    • Psychophysics. And, potentially, monkeys.

    So what do you ride? by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #1 Sun Jan 01, 2006 at 06:35:46 PM EST
    I'm guessing a VFR, only because I see a black one in nicer weather in our of company's lots.


    A KLR by celeriac (2.00 / 0) #3 Mon Jan 02, 2006 at 06:27:55 AM EST
    a.k.a. least sexiest bike ever. Great ride, but if I catch someone "checking me out" on it, chances are he's got a mullet.

    I lust for a KLR 650 by georgeha (2.00 / 0) #5 Mon Jan 02, 2006 at 06:37:30 AM EST
    I often see one in our lots, it's there in all kinds of weather. But, I've read they're a tall bike, and at 5' 8", it might not be a great fit for me.

    Regardless, I have to get my Kz400 running perfectly, then move onto getting the CB550 safe. running and legal before I contemplate my next bike.

    * You, me, and the other PNW alkies
