Hi Friends! I hope you all are having a wonderful day!
My adventures in the Oregon high desert and Bend continue!
Yesterday, I wrapped up some of the last bit of chores that any new resident of a state is required to take care of.
One of those would be the dreaded DMV. Aaaaggh! For me, I got a double dose of the DMV, as in addition to driving a car, I also ride a motorcycle. I actually took care of the car a couple days ago, and yesterday was the motorcycle bit. It wasn’t too terribly bad, truth be told, if you take the time to pick through the DMV website and show up prepared. Otherwise, you’re going to wait in line ( or queue, as the English say ) for a couple hours, and be told to return with so-and-so missing document.
Yesterday’s motorcycle bit was adventurous as I had to make a 15-mile ride in 32 degree freezing temps. I’ll get into my motorcycle adventures in future posts. Suffice it to say, it was “fun”.
I also made some more progress in learning WordPress, which this blog runs on, and how to tweak things so’s my blog looks the best that I can imagine it to look. Expect to see the look and feel of this blog change, as I learn the WordPress magic.
What else. Ah. I wrote up an About page that explains a bit about my past and why I’m doing what I’m doing and how I came to end up in the middle of Oregon.
It’s the usual story. 20 years in the IT industry punching out code for various companies in big, crowded cities. Dealing with traffic, and high housing costs. Surrounded by grumpy, stressed-out people. I decided life is too short for that and decided to … as the 80s rapper Young MC says …
“Bust a Move!”.
Ok then. My stomach be grumbling, so I’m going to head down the street and see what I can find for lunch. Being Bend, I’ll probably have to grab me a pint of beer, also. Bend is famous for its abundance of craft breweries, if you didn’t know.
Until the next post, my friends! Cheers.
