Project America Run

This is some of the local Paxton runners putting in some miles with Mike Ehredt (in the yellow shirt) who is running from Astoria, OR to Rockland, ME to honor fallen soldiers in Iraq & Afganistan. He's planted a flag every mile he's covered & read off a name, rank & town of a soldier who's made the ultimate sacrifice. Check him out at & show him some support if you see him out there, truly one of the "good guys"

Sunsets & no camera!

Yeah, I'm a sunset kind of person rather than sunrise. Just can't get up in the am after 6 years on the graveyard shift, perhaps someday I'll adjust. Anyways, I've seen some of the most incredible sunsets this summer & have yet to have my camera along when I'm out there pedaling into those sunsets. We've got a great background with the hills in the distance & we've had some AWESOME looking distant storms that brew up some GREAT thunderheads in the evenings, this is when I like to be out there turning over the pedals taking in all the marvelous sights.

Also seeing plenty of wildlife & have had TWO rattlesnake encounters thus far this summer, more than I've had in the last 5 years! I guess I'll start carrying the camera more as it's all right out there to enjoy & record for some lasting memories.
