Rick's your average shaved-head, fire-juggling biker having his way with technology for fun and profit. These are some of his pictures.

Space Shuttle Launch

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.

40°27'05.50"N 74°26'16.02"W0 viewsIf you follow Lawrence Brook downstream from Farrington Lake you'll reach Milltown, where the Main Street bridge divides the town. The bridge is only inches from being washed out, and this is as close as the police would allow me to approach. I waved the camera but they still got kinda agitated.

40°26'21.36"N 74°27'59.07"W1 viewsAt Farrington Lake, this is the site of a former railroad trestle. Normally you can still see part of the pilings but other than a bit of brush it's completely submerged. Irrelevant but historical note: this trestle appeared in the 1914 serial 'The Perils of Pauline'.
