That One Time I Ran Steeplechase

In high school, I stayed away from track. Until, my cross country coach suggested that I might like to try steeplechase. I didn’t know anything about steeplechase, but he explained that it was a long distance run with some hurdle like obstacles in it. My high school didn’t have a track and we didn’t have one nearby that we could train at. So, the first time I ever ran a steeplechase event was at a meet. [Keep Reading]

Star Trek Visits the Planet of the Apes

Star Trek was a television series that ran for three season from from 1966 to 1969. The first Planet of the Apes movie was released in 1968.

Dollar Store Turntable Covers

I wanted to keep my turntables plugged in and ready to go at a moment’s notice. But it’s time-consuming to take the roadcase lids off and place them under the decks every time I want to use them. I would also have to plug in the mixer every time as well. Fortunately, I came up with a great solution that for under $10.00 [Keep Reading]

Saugeen Shores Rotary Skate Park

I love taking pictures of skateboard parks and sharing them with you. Every time I come across a new park, I make a post about it. This one features pictures from the 12,000 square feet course. I had a blast skating the ledges, curbs, rails, quarter pipe, open bowl, pole jam, and up gap. I sure you will too. [Keep Reading]]
