I thought it would be fun to suffer, and film the superstorm we just had on the Oregon Coast in Seaside.  I was blinded by the fierce pellets of water, and nearly perished smashing into a barricade when the brakes went out on my beach cruiser.  All is well, and I think I scored some superb footage for Survival Bros followers.  First is an HD video I filmed on September 28, 2013.  I biked around Seaside, OR and showed off all the flooding and storm damage.  I covered a lot of ground, and used my GoPro Hero 3 Black head camera to shoot the high-definition action.

On the next day, Sunday September 29th 2013 I biked into Seaside on another, much crappier bike because  I got a flat the day before.  I made it to the sand along the Pacific Ocean, right before the bicycle gave up on me.  It fell apart, and had to be ditched in a bush. This video shows me walking on the beach while the storm sand blasted my body.   Exfoliating.

I dug this precious flattened penny out of my old golf bag recently. I must have been using it as a ball marker on the course back in high school.

With a group of students from Oregon, I visited New York, and the World Trade Center just 3 months before the attacks happened there in 2001. I remember not being able to see the top of the tower from my bus seat. It was incredible. The lobby was grand. We took a long elevator ride to the “Top of The World.” That’s what it says on my squished penny. I got it at the top. I recall the kind people that worked at the tower, and made our experience fun. I’m so glad I went.

I will never forget being on the Observation Deck that day, or the events that followed on September 11, 2001. R.I.P.
