Urban Achiever

2,000 miles in 10 months isn't special, but seeing the odometer roll over  gives me many feels. Many feels right in the hearts.

Still life with Bremerton

The junk shop at the Perry Avenue Mall shut down. Poor Tweety Bird presumably  broke her neck against the window. 
Many of the machines at the mall's laundromat are broken and tagged with handwritten 'out of order' signs. A tv hanging from the ceiling shows the local government access channel. On the tv is the mayor and a city councilman of a nearby, affluent city. They are talking about Bremerton, they are criticizing Bremerton city government. Both say they didn't understand a recent decision, and both said they felt sorry for Bremerton. 
Somebody made a little home under an eave in a condemned apartment complex. 
They made art on the walls
Sally is a Bremerton artist who made clandestine biblical themed bookmarks in the jail, using the adhesive backing on menstrual pads. 
Sally smuggled out the bookmarks in the mail.
Grammar jerks are funny sometimes. I don't even know if that's correct, but I do know even if it isn't, I get it. 
In the summer the ivy and morning glory and blackberry bushes grow in riots. Shameless, thirsty growth.

Lake Washington Circumnavigation

Rode 'round Lake Washington Saturday night. Met a man named Chief at Genesee Park, who kept his girlfriend waiting in the car while he gave us weed. She kept honking the horn, but we were talking about classic video games, a subject that Chief feels deeply about, despite his cool exterior. Honk honk. The weed he gave us was blue dream. It got us greatly high, and we spoke positively of Chief after that. 

We swam in Renton, at Gene Coulon Park, and it was great. 

We found porn at Porno Bridge. Duh. 
And then this one:
Rode about 51 miles. S'fun.
