Food Carts

It may sound strange for someone who is as picky of an eater as I am to like to try new things, but occasionally I do. I suppose things like Indian, Vietnamese and Korean aren't new anymore. I like them all. In Grants Pass there is one Korean Restaurant (its good but no one will go there with me) and one Vietnamese Restaurant (I wasn't impressed.)

Recently though there has been a Vietnamese food cart downtown called Sàigòn Xích lô. Its caused quite a controversy much like some of the food carts have in other cites. I have never gotten a chance to try the ones in downtown Portland, but there are a bunch with a wide variety of food types. I've hear Medford has a handful as well.

The main controversy with this cart is that he doesn't have a permanent place to park. They just park in an empty space on the street and move every two hours.Click Here for a news story about it. Personally I would like to see more food carts with a bigger variety of food. When I'm at work I don't like to go to a restaurant and sit by myself. I'd much rather pick something up to go and take it back to work or to home.

I've tried this cart a few times and had the first 3 items on the menu. All were pretty good. I wish they just had simple cheap Pho. That's what Grants Pass really needs is good cheap Pho... and Indian food.

Days 2, 3, 4 and 5

Didn't get around to updating my blog for the rest of vacation. Just got home today and have 31 caches to claim for it. I could have had a lot more but I didn't stop for several. Had a snake scare me away from one (watch out for snakes under those piles of rocks.)

So the trip was Grants Pass to Crane. Then Crane to Boise. Boise to Burns and finally Burns to Grants Pass. We took some side trips like driving 100 miles extra just to go to McDermitt. We also drove off the highway to visit Arock, Danner and Drewsey.

Some pictures from the first couple of days. More to come

Day 1: Grants Pass, OR to Crane, OR

Decided to take a trip East this week. Today we traveled over to Crystal Crane Hot Springs in Crane, OR. Had breakfast at McDonalds in White City and was not too surprised to see Lazyboy. Having trouble uploading pictures but these were today's caches.

Bike Path Caching

I went out today with Kelly and Iseek to find some new geocaches on the bikepath between Central Point and Medford. Daveydude later joined us and we had a good time. I had 20 finds on the day which was 5 times more then I had found all year. It has been a long time since I went caching with everyone so I took some videos and pictures.

The finds for the day included:


And here are some old time videos
