    Oneonta Gorge, Plus

    Today we took a quick trip to Oneonta Gorge, wading through the stream to the falls. You know Portland is having awesome weather when Oneonta Gorge is crowded.

    Then we headed to Portland for some froyo and a little walking downtown.

  • One clean cell phone

    When we went hiking in Oneonta Gorge, I was careful to bring a couple of plastic Ziploc bags to double bag my digital camera. I even removed the car door remote from my key ring and left it in the car. I was quite proud of my planning and forethought until I realized at the falls, after wading through waist-high water, that my cell phone was still in my pants pocket.

    I quickly removed its battery and put the pieces in in a baggie for the return wade. At the car, I also removed the SIM card and opened the clamshell so it could dry. At home, I used the blow dryer on it for a few minutes and then left it to dry. Unfortunately, even after 24 hours of drying, the phone wouldn’t boot without locking up. So I put the phone (not the battery nor SIM card) on an insulated cookie sheet in the oven at 150°F for an hour.

    It’s all better now after its unscheduled cleaning. Not bad for a free phone. :-D

  • Oneonta Gorge

    Today, I took the family (such as it is with our two olders daughters absent) up the gorge to Lower Oneonta Falls. We are taking our church’s teen group there this Saturday and wanted to make sure the river is not too deep to safely wade to the falls.

    As the pictures show, the weather was great, the pools not too deep to wade (nor too chilly). This weekend is a go!
