Yeah, Another Bike Thingy, And Your Point Is?

I have a confession to make: until just recently I haven't been on my bicycle much the past year.

I know, I know, shame on me.  The fact of the matter is, the job I'd held for almost fourteen years ended late last year, and I let it affect my riding schedule.  I used to commute at least a couple times per week (and often more) via my bike even in the winter months (AND I even won the Bike To Work Challenge among my fellow employees one year, yeah boiiii!), but I had fallen into the…

Get Lost!

Sometime this coming weekend, I'm gonna have the missus drop me off somewhere, anywhere, and let me walk (or ride) home.  I'll take a camera and show you what I see.  It may take me awhile, but that's kind of the point, dig?  I'm gonna get lost.

It's kind of a damn shame that, too often, citizens of a city become residents only of their own neighborhoods, rarely venturing outside of them.  I suppose it's to be expected, given that your average human being's curiosity extends in…

I love this series, not the least because Portland itself could easily be included in the cast of characters.  Cain rarely mentions a facet of the city without lingering for a bit, allowing her…
