    Incredible bird.

    I never saw a Concorde or Blackbird in flight, but I've enjoyed a B-1B flyover at 500 feet, with full afterburner. The organizers of the town parade got a bit more excitement than they wanted (screaming kids & shattered windows), but I was grinning for minutes.

    I see the SR-71 every once in a while flying near me but never land. Touch and Goes since there are no chase cars at the airport I am near.

    Last time I saw a B1-B was when I was landing at the airport on Oahu and the HI Air National guard had them parked near their hangers. That was a while ago though. I do remember seeing one at a airshow back in the 80's during my younger years and being in awe.

    latest project I'm working on; one of the things I do for fun - providing wilderness experiences to those with mobility challenges that might not normally get the chance to, or want to get back out there connecting to nature.

    Yes, we're looking for financial support through crowd source funding, and this is me spreading the word. If you like what we're doing, have questions, feel free to ask or share with others if you like. And if not that's okay too.

    Nice. I did a "driveabout" up there about 20 years ago (jesus). Went up to Ashland, Crater Lake, Eugene, Portland, up the Columbia River, Mt. Hood, then out to Astoria and all the way down the coast back home. Truck-camped at a lot of beaches. I discovered Black Butte Porter on that trip. Awesome.
    :(

    I climbed Mt. Scott behind Crater Lake. I highly suggest doing this. Nice remote undeveloped campgrounds on forestry roads, too.

    Why so sad? I like Dick - er, Scott.

    The closest I've come to PNW is NorCal 23 years ago. Just too far for anything but a 2 week trip.

    Bought a Galaxy S4 today. Too much money, but it'll be worth it.

    Have at it.

    I plugged my new phone in to charge and the power went out. Damn phone.

    BTW, does anyone know the amperage of the Tacoma's USB port? The phone wants 2.0A, which is more than most phones. Pretty sure my old chargers are all 1.5A, which is convenient for people that want to sell me more shit for my phone. At least it charges quickly.
