    Stamen Design’s Watercolor Maps

    Stamen Design created an online map that looks like watercolor paintings. You can zoom in and out and pan around, same as other online maps.

    I could get lost in this map. :-)

  • Budnitz No. 3

    Budnitz No. 3

    A while back, I noted the Budnitz No. 1 is a beautiful bike but wasn’t in love with its price. Paul Budnitz must read my blog because he recently introduced the Budnitz No. 3, available in either stainless steel or black chromoly steel for about half the price of the No. 3.

    The No. 3’s clean lines and beautiful simplicity reminds me of the red Schwinn cruiser I learned to ride on, though with some nice upgrades in the centerdrive belt drive, 29-inch wheels, mechanical disc brakes, and an 11-speed Alfine internal gear hub.

    I think I’d feel guilty putting fenders and a rack on it, though not putting it through its paces on a forested single-track trail.

  • Headed Home

    Headed Home

    Today was our last day of vacation. We checked all the drawers, cupboards, and cabinets, packed up the car, trailer, and car-top carrier, but weren’t quite ready to say goodbye.

    So we went for a last bike ride. We rode by the cabin where Melissa learned to ride a bike, so many years ago. We made one last trip to the Sunriver village, where the kids took one last (okay, two last) rides on the bumper cars and made sneaky gift purchases in the toy store, I wandered through the art gallery, and we all took another taste of Goody’s goodness.

    Of course, we posed for pictures everywhere. I couldn’t really choose my favorites, so here’s a bunch.

    Now we’re home, the car is unpacked, the car top carrier is stowed in the garage, and the borrowed trailer is returned. The washer and dryer are running full speed and we’re dragging around half-fast.

    The week starts tomorrow on a Tuesday. Not a bad way to start the week. :-)

    And there’s a video of the bumper cars.
