Finally, as promised.......the pictures of our MacGyvering our friend's truck open.

If you're not familiar, I went to Moab for an overnight trip. On our last hike, our friends locked their keys in their truck. We used a hot dog cooking stick, my SAK a screwdriver and my husband tofinally get the truck unlocked. The long version is under My MacGyverisms.

Here's the evidence.........

Now all I gotta do is learn how to pick the lock, MacGyver style! biggrin.gif

This was a great trip. It came at a time when I really needed to spend some time outdoors having fun with friends and family and the weather was so nice. Hard to believe it was only a month ago, especially with all the snow falling right now.

As soon as it gets warm again, I'm ready to go back.

Thanks. Better save that visit for a few months. Right now, the desert is cold and wet. Today Moab got .70 inches of rain.

Its hard to take a bad photo in Moab. Come on out and I'll play tour guide. biggrin.gif

Great pictures!

One of my co-worker's' sister works for the National parks (not sure if that's exactly what she said) system in Moab. She's always talking about going out there to see her. Now I finally get to see what the place looks like.

She's always saying that the best coffee comes from the Mormons there. I guess she goes out there just to get the coffee, lol!

There are some pretty good coffee shops in Utah, suprising considering most Mormons don't drink coffee.

The place in Moab is called the Loco Lizard, I think. It changed management recently and I can't remember if they also changed the name.

Cool, a connection in Moab. The photos are all from Arches National Park. There is also Canyonlands National Park and Dead Horse State Park in the same general area.

If you go, you will have a great time.

I went to graduate school in Utah -- four years of it -- and not all of my memories are particularly pleasant. But I remember Moab with great fondness; it's a really gorgeous area!

It didn't have very good coffee back then, so I'm glad they've got that fixed!

Wow! Nice pics, Grrl... It's been SO long since I'd been in that (general) area.

Your son? A cutie! biggrin.gif

Thanks trtl. We think he's pretty cute ourselves.

Beth, which school? What were you studying?

Yep, coffee is becoming a lucrative business in Utah. My husband knows where most of the coffee shops in Salt Lake area. biggrin.gif

I was in a MFA programme at the University of Utah, studying technical theatre -- specifically, costuming. I worked the Utah Shakespearean Festival for two summers during this time; which would have been more fun if I'd had anything better than a bicycle to get out into hiking country on our rare days off!

This was between 1983 and 1987 (yup, MacGyver started airing while I was there), and it was nearly impossible to find either decent coffee or decent beer anywhere. blink.gif

Your son is adorable. biggrin.gif (My stepson just turned 21 . . . I am in shock.)

Thanks guys. We think he's pretty adorable too...........except for when he glues Girl Scout cookies to the living room furniture. biggrin.gif

I was working my government job and going to school when you were in Utah. If you never got to get out to the back country, its a standing invite, you come out, we'll play tour guide. Jade knows that area like the back of his hand. We can show you some spectacular country. Just drop us a line.

I skimmed that sentence and I thought you said that "he glues Girl Scouts to the living room furniture."

hmm.bmp

That's not right... unsure.gif

This is an area where I often take the kids to have a climb around and play.

This is the lower part of the lower part of the stream.

That's a beautiful place, Rocky. And it looks F U N !!! The land (and water) reminds of a place that I would go hiking in upstate New York. Just bee-autiful!

I love it when kids are that age... all full of imagination and adventure. Enjoy them while it last. Kids grow up WAY too fast... happy.gif

Well, I don't know if it counts as adventuring MacGyver style, but it was definetly an adventure driving home last night. I promised a post with some pics of the latest blizzard so here they are:

Our neighbor and the fence between our homes. Yes there really is a fence there

How deep is that snow? Jade's ruler is 16 inches and the snow is higher

Mom, I can't walk. The snow is at my butt. Poor Logan

Snow piled deep. My house is the dark grey one. You can barely see Jade's truck on the other side of the snow pile. The brown fence is about 5.5 ft tall.

The tree in our yard. The snow piled around it is over 6 ft deep.

Yeah, we had a few flakes.

Yeah the weather soothseer called it a break away storm. The low pressure split off from the jet stream and parked over the Salt Lake and it just kept on spinning out the snowflakes. dry.gif

Supposed to be warmer and clearer the rest of the weekend. biggrin.gif

There's been a funny shiny thing up in the sky off and on the last few days . . . I think I remember seeing something like it before, months ago . . . unsure.gif and when it's visible, I've noticed that there are dark blobby things underneath solid objects outside. blink.gif Anyone ever seen this phenomenon before?
