Competition to win a Howard Viele

Postby yog » Tue Jan 07, 2003 1:00 am

As you probably guessed from the last competition, I have a certain fondness for the place I was born and live. So now it's your turn.



The Prize

A PE Second Edition Howard Viele (open back and VG-10 blade). This is a beautiful knife and I am slightly reluctant to part with it, but in order to keep my collection under some sort of control I have decided to just keep the knives I actually use.



The Winner

All entrants names will be put in a hat, and the winner will be drawn at random.



How to Enter

Just post on this thread, listing one thing you really like about where you live. That's it.



Don't worry, the quality of your post won't effect the draw in any way, so it can be as long or as short as you like.

Don't forget, there's always something that makes a place worth living in, however small.



Closing Date

Friday 17th January 2003, 11.00pm GMT





Walk softly, carry a big stick.

Yog

The main thing I like about where I live is the ability to get out of the city and into the rugged hinterlands in minutes, not hours, and with little traffic along the way.

At this time of year however, I'm not particularly fond of the weather!!

Thanks for the contest!

If you don't like the weather, wait a second.

The Rogue river 4 miles, rugged coastline 2 miles, the forested mountains (we're in 'em) and the creek behind my house has salmon and steelhead in it right now. And the yard art is animated (live deer visit our fruit trees, otters play on the gravel bar)

The picture indicates that the wind can blow a bit, as my spiralight tree needed heavier guywires. :o)

Central Coast of California, nice weather. I would prefer to live where Chinook lives, but as a rocket scientist I have to live close to my work. We are near Vandenberg AFB, where I work for Boeing launching satellites into polar orbit with the Delta II rocket. Our biggest customer is the NASA.

School.

I'm making the best of it, at least.



If anyone is nearing that time to consider college, or perhaps is going to send a child, consider University of Michigan. It ain't bad.

Here's one I took of my campus in light of the tolkien movie, "the two towers." The towers are located on North Campus and Central campus of U of M. Just sorta how I feel about school. <img src="smile.gif" width=15 height=15 align=middle border=0>

Fresh oranges, right off the tree in January - and the sun shining on another beautiful 80 degree winter day.

Thanks, Yog!
