Wide Garage Shot of the couple


Don’t they look nice and smug in the garage? Usually the Corvette will be closer to the wall when I am not using her but I drove her all weekend so she is in an easy in and out position. There is still plenty of room in the garage no matter how I park them.

The above pic is a Panoramic by the way. Four pictures in one. It is my second attempt at the garage. The first attempt was all screwey. You have to make sure the camera is steady all the way through and it has to be level. I have a tripod but I still managed to hose the first shots. This one came out pretty good. I almost cant tell where the stitches are. I used HP Imaze Zone Plus which came loaded on the new pc. Click pic for HUGE pic.

Looks good I think.

8 mile

I think I found me a pretty good trek for my daily bike rides. Its around my  neighborhood and the country club next door. I drove the trek today in the Vette and in the Colorado today and since I bike it twice it equals out to about 8 Miles. I think that is pretty good for me. Hopefully in a few weeks I can make that trek three times around and not be dead tired. Right now I make the trek in a little under an hour and afterwards I feel pretty damn good. The goal is to one day be able to do the biking in the mornings.
 
My friend George has asked me to bike with him and his brother at 7 in the morning but I don’t think I can keep up with those guys. The trail they want to take has a lot of slopes. I used to ride it before and I would be huffing and puffing after every trip. If I keep my 8 mile trip going then maybe a trip down that trail in the future wont be as bad. I really need to improve my eating habits as well. Usually I will eat a banana before the ride and eat an orange afterwards followed by a shower. It seems to be working out. People always ask me if I am trying to lose weight. Of course, they are being sarcastic. I am just trying to get healthier and trying to give myself more energy.
 
Wish me luck.
