    A few weeks ago I was sitting at lunch and looked on my phone app to see if there were any caches close. Sure enough there was one within feet. After lunch I stopped and found it quickly, but did not have a pen on me to log it. Now fast forward to earlier this week. Same place for lunch, pen in hand, cache was signed, went to log it and....Stick Me!This might be the cache. I let my premium membership lapse and this is a premium only. I can't see it on the map or log it.There seem to be a lot of premium only caches in Portland. Actually the cache map looks pretty nice without so many of those…

  • Happy 4th of July

    4 Jul 2015 | 9:34 pm
    237 years ago yesterday my 7th Great Grandfather Capt. Samuel Ransom died in the Revolutionary War. He left the Continental Army to go defend his home from British and Iroquois in the Wyoming Valley of what is today Pennsylvania. This battle was latter commemorated by a poem Gertrude of Wyoming. This poem was a favorite of Rep J.M. Ashley who introduced a bill in congress to create the Territory of Wyoming which latter became the State of Wyoming.Just to remember that war is hell... the next year, George Washington, who was still pissed off over the whole thing sent an expedition to destroy…

  • Vacation Days 6-7

    8 Jun 2015 | 7:36 pm
    Vacation day 6 was a rehash of other days. Driving back up the cost to Lincoln City and then out to McMinnville. We stopped a few times including an extended stop at Spirit Mountain Casino. The extended stop was for the buffet. We took our time to McMinnville, but everyone was tired and we didn't end up doing much.Day 7 we had planned to go to the air museum, but the price combined with a lack of interest by some parties led us just to go on back to Portland. We used the extra time to drive to the gorge and see Multnomah Falls and the Vista House. Later in the day we went downtown Portland…

    Day 5's travel was from Newport down to Lakeside and back up to Florence. One of the stops was at Sea Lion Caves. I have been in the gift shop many times but I have never been down in the cave.

    Yup I can honestly say that I have seen Hell Freeze Over. No the Detroit Lions did not win the Super Bowl and i am not speaking the place of sulfur and brimstone.  Hell, Michigan is a tiny little town not to far from where I lived in Dexter, Michigan. Yes anytime there was a good snow or ice storm news crews would come out for the photo opportunity of shooting Hell frozen over.For the longest time it was a one light town without the light. In fact the only thing was a bar. Now it is not quite a booming metropolis though it has expanded to an ice cream / putt-putt / Halloween store.Hell…

Home of Bronner's Christmas Store (largest in the world) plus Bavarian Inn and Zehnder's World Famous Chicken houses.Paddle boat in FrankenmuthThe feud of the chicken houses go back ages.
