STP doesn't always mean Stone Temple Pilots

*Events take place sometime in the afternoon on Sunday July 15th


Apparently, it can also mean Seattle To Portland, and it can refer to a 204 mile bike ride over a weekend and I have a friend that's now done it for the second year in a row.




These people all came out to the Finish Line in downtown Portland to cheer on Jessica "Crash" as she accomplished her goal. It all happened so fast. One minute we were standing around looking at our clocks, looking around, laughing and the next second she was right there, crossing the finish line...



She's the one in red







Congratulations Crash, we are so proud of you!










*Andy nicknamed Jessica "Crash" after a near fatal accident she was in during her early days at Gutenberg. The nickname is really a testament to the fact that Jessica's a survivor and ain't nothin gunna keep her down.

*The reason we were waiting longer than expected for her to cross the finish line was because about 2 miles from it, she and a biker she was riding with crashed into one another around a turn and they had take time to recover.
