oh forget...

this thesis thing. I am doing this.

I mean really -- how would this even fly in a department.

"Oh Dr. Randle, so I changed my topic for my thesis...oh and by the way, it is finished and here it is."

Is it like a thesis sweatshop?

Operation let's do this utah (update)

So in the last week I accomplished several missions from operation let's do this utah, I am sorry that I didn't take pictures of any of them:

Cabela's (indescribable)
This is the Place Monument (the heritage village was closed -- maybe need to go back to that one)
The Red Iguana (not as good as I would hope it would be -- I guess I need to get the mole)
Hickory Kist (pretty awesome sandwich)

Wow, there are a lot of food places on there. Regardless, I still have much to do -- I have won the battle, but I am losing the war.

I think... (Spiral Jetty)

I will make a list of places in Utah that I need to visit before I blow this joint. We decided that the weather was getting nice, and today was as good as any day to start on the list, so we made the venture up to the spiral jetty.

Jessica is driving. Over her shoulder are cargo things on trains. Mike told us that his grandpa came up with the idea to stack them....Prove it!!

On the way to the spiral jetty, you can stop off at Golden Spike national park. It is where the transcontinental railroad was completed. Jessica is representing the Union Pacific railroad, while Mike is representing the Central Pacific.

Oh yeah. And there is no golden spike there. It is in some museum...I think it is time for a namechange.

After the museum you have to drive a while to get to the jetty, but sometimes we would get views like this and other times we would talk to cows.

After driving forever on the rockiest road ever we got to the jetty. Only to find out that it had sunk. Bogus!!

If you can't tell, it is in the shape of a spiral.

Then I took a picture of myself because I don't like asking people to take pictures of me. I just got my hair cut -- don't worry mom.

Then we found some junk. I totally couldn't figure out why people would come out to that area and leave their big buoys. But jessica figured out that it was to stand on.

Then I found this formation. It was kind of like a pier and kind of like a house, but it is in the middle of nowhere. I think aliens have something to do with it.

All in all, we were left with a lot of unsolved mysteries (cue Robert Stack), and full bellies from big bacon burgers in Ogden.

Phase one of Operation let's do this Utah is complete.

Stay tuned for future missions, including:

National Parks
Ghost Towns
Dugway Proving Grounds

Feel free to offer mission suggestions and/or invite yourself to be a part of an expedition.

so once...

this girl took photos of my band playing a show and then my thesis chair sends this link to me in an email:

this dude...

kind of rules my world most of the time. I can't believe that my family's genes could produce something as totally rad as him.

In other news not much has been happening -- although I am convinced that literature reviews are of the devil.
