This is it OK it is time to finally get in shape and loose the weight. No more beating around the bush or kinda half-assing it. Alan this week posed a challenge to all who might be interested. It is a diet challenge of 1200 calories. Restrictive? yes but I've done it before and seen great results and it is just what I need right now. I'm starting Monday at 290 and would like to get down to a healthy 170-180 range.That's well over a hundred pounds to loose. I know that I'm in this for the long haul and wont be able to loose all my weight in just 12 weeks. But hopefully I'll get a good start finally. Wish me luck.

A couple of weeks ago Melody and I went to the coast to spend some time with family. While  in Lincoln City we decided we would do some activity and the 3mi hike to Drift Creek Falls seemed to just fit the bill.

Drift Creek falls is one of those places that has to be seen to believed. A beautiful hike through Pacific rain forest flanked on both sides by old growth trees, ferns, and elder the hike alone was worth the trip. But the  big reward at the end of this beautiful hike the sight of a majestic waterfall from a 250 foot suspension bridge.  Here are some photos of our trip

Yes the bridge bounced, and scenes of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom "Bridge Scene" Kept running through my mind
