Double Crossing the Mighty Columbia?

Dear Sir or Madam,

By the time you read this, I'll be on a bridge, looking over the edge.

Okay... maybe not exactly looking over. Would you believe looking at the edge from a fairly safe distance?

I'm an English major. We're all about the prepositions. (Sadly, not about the propositions. That's the Wildlife majors' department, damn them.)

Though, of course, when you read this I might still be on the bridge getting ferried across it before walking back, which doesn't really make any sense unless you're a) a crazed fitness fanatic who likes to enter walks and races as motivation or b) you simply like walking across bridges (not a group I fall into, I confess).

What, me? On a tangent?

I'm off doing the Great Columbia Bridge Crossing. Details later. And, of course, the gold star. I have a feeling I'll have earned it.

Done! Definitely earned that star.

It looks reallyreally Steep. They sail very big boats under that thing, right?

Done? You mean you did it? No shuttle?


I think you deserve at least two gold stars for that effort. Maybe three.

I am completely in awe over here. Very proud of you.

To hell with the propensity for prepositional propositions. I want details.

Yeah- What BCB said, and an extra WOO HOO just for you. DETAILS indeed.

Well done!!! 10k is quite an accomplishment! I say stick a few gold stars on your clothes to wear all week.
