It’s time to get serious about getting in shape for this summer. I went for a long hike up Rodgers Ridge in the Blue Mountains of eastern Oregon. A few days ago I was looking at peaks in Google Earth and came across what looked like an interesting high point along Rodgers Ridge so yesterday I went out to check it out. Unfortunately the high point wasn’t as interesting as I had hoped. The trees surrounding it blocked what looked like an amazing view of the surrounding peaks. Even though the views were disappointing, I still had an amazing spring day hiking in the Blue Mountains. The technical details for the hike can be found at my Garmin Connect site (http://connect.garmin.com/activity/311264394).
Last year I purchased a new GravityWorks™ water filter and have absolutely fallen in love with it. With the gravity filter there’s no need for pumping. I fill up the upper reservoir hang it in a tree or sit it on a rock then all you have to do is let gravity filter the water into the lower reservoir. Now instead of having to pump filter water I can sit back relax
while the water’s being filtered. If anyone out there’s looking for a new filter check out the GravityWorks™.
