Show us your part of the world!
« on: June 05, 2006, 04:32:26 am »
Hey Guys,

A few of you have asked me what Utah is like.  So here are some photo's from what I feel is my piece of Earth.  Although the state of Utah, and the National Government might think otherwise.  Utah is more than a big red arch.

A few pictures from a wood chopping hike to prepare for some backpacking trips this summer. 

Not for the weak at heart.  We did have a Sasquatch sighting.

 :D I live in Salt Lake County.  Those pictures are from Wasatch county.  Where I live is tied in with about 75 miles of people.  Many cities but one big cluster of humanity surrounded by mountains.  I hate the enormous amount of people.  I'll post some pictures of my city, but I'll have to take some first.

Here is my 'Office' :)

The seat and frame pictured I built with my old man to be the exact same driving position as in one of our Sakers, and that is also a Saker seat, with a little more padding however :)







I'll post some outdoors shots when I get to be at home while its not dark.

The pedals are just the standard Mono Black ones.  I had to angle them up bacause of the driving position.  They are made for people in normal chairs so you press down on them.  I however am in a early 90's F1 position (pre raised nose), so my arse is at the same height as my feet.

This is a higher view (photos dissapeared from the site at this level :( )


My place is about where the blue circle is, only 2mins from Palmerston North.

I work at the center of town pretty much, and it only takes about 7mins to get to work in peak traffic :D

what ever your budget ,theirs only 1 thing important the lens! make sure you get one from a proper camera company , e.g cannon,minnolta,pentax ect.. also mega pixels dont matter so much once you get over 3 meg unless your really gonna do proffesional stuff.
