what's happenin in the life o' Blaine

So, it's been too long since I've posted a blog w/ pics., so here are some pics out of my i-phone of random stuff that I've been up to lately.

This is me riding a rip-stick. It's a pretty sweet little skate-board-y thinger with just two wheels. you have to swivel the wheels back and forth to move on it. But through that motion, you can keep it moving without stepping off to kick. Anyway, I was pretty proud of myself for being able to kinda ride one. I was just chillin all slouched out so that I would look cool when the guy took the pic., but really this pose just makes me look fat. Anyway. I can ride a rip-stick. Cool, eh!

This is a pic. of me working on a demo. of our hot-applied flexible pavement repair material: Nuvo Gap. I was working w/ the DOT in a 4-lane freeway. The traffic control guys just closed down ONE lane, so traffic was going by on BOTH sides. pretty crazy. I guess that's just the way I roll sometimes: CRAZY. ;)

This is me on my new Harley!
Just kidding. As part of a case study my MBA class was working on this summer, went to the Harley Davidson franchise in Lehi, UT. I hopped on one of the bikes they had sitting out in front of the shop. The funny thing is, I thought this was one of the bikes they had for sale, but I found out that it was really just somebody's bike. I guess I was supposed to know by the cool custom paint and stuff. . . All I knew was that it was just Bad-A lookin, and I wanted my pic. on it. Glad I didn't get roughed up by whoever the owner was, but it was pretty funny.
So there you have it. That's some random stuff I've been up to. I'll have to snap some pics of my new car, and get them in here.

I want to see the videos of the rip stick jousting that happens during break at school. You didn't even mention that we went on a trip!
