blogger challenge appeared on toadmama.com. The challenge is to do a post a day during February with the overall topic of each post predetermined. After agreeing, I realized that the Feb 1st is tomorrow (today?) and the first topic, for me, is a real challenge. Most of the pics on this blog are kind of like this one.
I had to look way back through my photo library to July, 2014 for a picture with me in it. I just don't do "selfies". This is right before my grandson left Alaska and I had promised him a ride in the sidecar, Bridget is holding on to him as we drove around the parking lot (in 1st gear). Photo taken by my son.
everydayriding.org while we were in MN. (We go to the really warm and sunny spots for vacation) I prefer to be on the other side of the camera so not very many photos of me (thankfully!). With me is Bridget who's put up with me for the last 15 years.
I recently retired from the University of Alaska after working there for over 31 years having just about every computer job you can think of. I initially started as a physics graduate student back in fall of 1982 but after a year and a half, quit school and got a job, any job I could find, with the goal of making enough money to go somewhere else. I guess that never happened.
I enjoy traveling around. In the past it would've been backpacking, x-country ski touring, bicycle touring or just about any other human powered means but lately, things with engines seem to be the preferred. I guess this blog is kind of like a hobby. After all, this is post 1310. I initially started blogging in 2005 as part of a wellness program at the university. Back then, they hosted the blog, moved it to another platform hosted on the Juneau campus, then abandoned it in April 2007 after the wellness program was outsourced. By then, I was kind of hooked even though I was never sure what to write about and moved to blogger.
Well that's more than enough for topic #1.
Here are a couple of more PBC videos. Only two more weeks to go on the Polar Bear Challenge.
