    Its a sad day in Rip City. Jerome Kersey one of my favorite all time Trail Blazers died today. If you asked me when I was 12 who my favorite player was... no doubt I would have named Kersey before even Clyde. I took this picture last year of Jerome presenting some season ticket holders near me with a piece of the 77 championship court.

  • Presidents Day

    16 Feb 2015 | 10:54 pm
    I thought about going geocaching today, but I didn't. I did go downtown while all the food carts were open. Its nice to be able to venture downtown on a weekday. I'm running a little low on new city adventures. I've eaten at a lot of food carts... leaving me just whats new and a few that aren't really my kind of thing. I've been thinking about going on one of the guided walking tours of the city. Maybe even get a book of attractions. That will give me some things to do for a while.Besides that I didn't do much today. I thought the history channel might have some shows on about the Presidents,…

    Not much happening so far 1/12 of the way through 2015. I've ate at a few food carts since its been unusually nice lately. Only one of them was new though. The blazers haven't been doing so hot, but I hope this is just a little midseason slump.Haven't been geocaching any. I just haven't had much desire for it yet.I'm looking forward to the Super Bowl tomorrow. Hope the Seahawks come to play this one.Here is a picture from last weekend... lunch from my favorite food cart

    Its the end of another year. My first full year in Portland has been eventful, except when it comes to geocaching. We lost a good old time geocacher in Rooster, and while I had the same amount of finds as last year there were a lack of memorable ones. Some of the highlights for the year include.Saw every Trail Blazer home game (including playoffs)Ate at nearly 50 food cartsCompleted the 7 Souvenirs of AugustAttended my first geocaching event in 2 yearsSome of my favorite caches for 2014 include:Top Score EJ's CacheWenaha Hanging Around the Summit Tomanowos and the Great…

    Janelle
    24 Feb 2015 | 9:30 am
    It’s all about how you look (on the internet…) For tweens, the world suddenly opens up on many levels: They can take the bus to their friend’s house by themselves. A group of them can see a movie together without grownups in the next row. They start to discover interests and hobbies through their friends, and not because their parents tell them it’s for their own good. For those who may not know, “tweens” are young men and women between the ages of 10-12 years old. They are in-between being a kid and being a teenager. So what do you do with a tween who won’t ever put…

    Last week the 16 films that made it to the 2014 Geocaching International Film Festival in Seattle made their online debut. The stories and moments captured in these videos run the gamut of the geocaching experience. We saw First-to-Find races with unexpected victors, chance meetings that led to love and friendship, tributes paid to those loved and lost, and inside jokes that only you geocachers would understand. Although all 16 films are winners, one film was to be recognized as above the rest and would receive the Global GIFF Audience Award, a special honor presented to one lucky filmmaker…
