Images captured by a Space Center employee! Yeah, yeah, I know... you say launches are old news. But these are from a nice vantage point, up close and personal. Friend of a friend stuff. Enjoy.

Unithon 1 - 1999


uni_group.jpg

Unicycles on Long Beach Island, New Jersey: 1999 These are from the 1st Unithon in August 1999, which has gone on to become an annual event. Unicyclists from around the globe ride the length of Long Beach Island, NJ to benefit the Alliance for a Living Ocean.

I remember reading on a unicycle-oriented mailing list of a girl's plan to make the ride and she was looking for others to join her. Since it was only a cross the state, I decided to participate. As I recall, we were a small group - 4 unicycles and a couple of bicycles.

I'm afraid I've got no details of these images to share. I found them in a backwater email directory on my laptop when doing some recent cleanup.

Unithon 4 - 2002


DSCN0998.JPG

Unicyclists on Long Beach Island, New Jersey: 2002 These are from the 4th Annual Unithon, 22 June 2002. Each year, unicyclists from around the globe ride the length of Long Beach Island, NJ to benefit the Alliance for a Living Ocean. The images are mainly from the start and finish because I was too busy riding it to fiddle with the camera.

These forgotten images were brought back online to banish the 'not found' errors that keep coming up in the Web reports. Since I re-edited them from archived original images they probably differ from the ones originally posted.

Wildwood Rules


P8190028.JPG

Signs and rules from our 2008 visit. We spent some time in Wildwood Crest, NJ, in the summer of 2008. It was soon apparent that the sheer number of rules and signs and warnings would make for some fun images. The effort began in our suite and widened from there. The final image presents an opportunity to learn something about conservation, erosion, and the New Jersey shoreline. Have fun!

Asbury Park, NJ - Summer 2006


DSC01556.jpg

Asbury Park, New Jersey in the summer of 2006. The town is coming back to life after a dark period of decline and neglect. I recall visiting here about a decade ago, walking around the broken and burned out boardwalk and feeling a bit uneasy about my personal safety. Today, the contrasts between new and old are quite striking as the resort is reclaimed.

Tenth Kelsey Run


DSC00884.jpg

The annual Kelsey Run is a fundraiser event that takes place in Bridgewater, NJ. The actual run itself is short but interesting as the local police clear a path for thousands of bikers to rumble through their towns. These images before and after the ride (it's hard to work a camera and ride at the same time!) are from June 19, 2005.

Orange County Choppers - July 2008


occ01.jpg

July ride to Orange County Choppers We took a ride to Orange County Choppers in July 2008. The circumstances that led us there were... trying... but we got there. The strap of my lid got a bit of a stretch as my jaw dropped when we wheeled into the parking lot of this huge glass-and-steel edifice - it was NOT what I expected. The bike shots could be better. So much glass and a blazing July sun were just too much for my little point-and-shoot.

Freedom Run to Ground Zero 2009


P5310159.jpg

This used to be an annual run benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. This set is from May 31, 2009 - our first time participating. This event drew an unprecendented crowd - 5,000 - 6,000 bikes - which seriously strained the support that authorities were able to provide. The run was subsequently discontinued for safety reasons.

Some of the interesting dialogue boxes I've run across. In the course of messing around with these machines we sometimes encounter dialogue boxes that warrant attention. Here are a few.

The Dumping Ground


4.jpg

These are images for which I've needed URLage for one reason or another. When I make a reference to an image from somewhere else it's often convenient to avoid the dreaded broken links by keeping it where I'm fairly certain it won't go away. This is that place. It's way easier (not to mention more entertaining) than using some backwater directory on one of the Web servers. I briefly considered fiddling with permissions and stuff, but nah, that's way too much trouble. Enjoy yourself but keep your expectations in check and don't ask questions.
