This guy totally gets what he deserves. I shouldn't say that because I do that a lot at my house just without the mask. It's not as bad as it used to be. Back when Andy lived at the house, people would get woken up in the middle of the night be trumpets and what not. It was pretty miserable.

Yesterday, we were called to a fire. I wasn't on the helicopter that day, so me and another co-worker drove the chase truck down to it. We were on our way down and were turned around because they decided not to put it out. We had eaten lunch on the go, so when we returned to the helibase, we decided to spend our lunch hour riding our motorcycles. We started up a trail near the helibase that quickly became much steeper and scarier than both of us had anticipated. After about an hour and ten minutes, both of us tipping our bikes over, and scary mountain side hills, we got to the top. We ended up calling back to the helibase to explain the situation, and made our way down a different road. Total elapsed time 1 hour 30 minutes. total time that i was paid for 30 minutes. It was actually pretty awesome. Probably won't do it again and i'm glad Travis was there to help me get my bike unstuck a couple times, but it was epic, so i won't complain.

I went to a "convenience" store today. I added the quotes because it wasn't so much convenient as it was dumb. The lady swiped my card. I typed in my secret special pin number, and it didn't print a receipt. So instead of just becoming frustrated and saying "well, i'll make things convenient for you and let you go", she called someone who could work the machine and they had to drive all the way to the store so get the receipt printer to work. I ended up just paying for it a second time and was long gone by the time she got there. at least i think i was long gone. I don't really know when she got there. Anyway, i was proud of myself for not doing anything rational like reaching over the counter and strangling her. Yeah for me.

This was the scariest place i've ever been to in my life. I was riding my motorcycle in Arbon Valley, aka middle of nowhere, looking for places that exude rural decay and lo and behold, i drove by this. I was inside photographing getting creeped out of my mind. It was fun though. I took some decent photos.
