Laguna Seca

This past Tuesday was my third track day and first at Laguna Seca this year. The day started off rainy but ended up sunny and the track sticky. I rode in B+ group not feeling like I was up for A group. I could drop a few more pounds from this past winter and my tires were marginal after five days on the track. B+ group was a ton of fun and actually very fast.

My focus now is my diet and spending a lot more time on my bicycle and spin bike. Hopefully in a another month I will be back in A group. Thanks to Keigwins for hosting the day and GotBlueMilk for the great pictures and Kawasaki for engineering such a wonderful superbike the ZX-10R.

Where did my glasses go?

I was in Taiwan last year and I lost my precious prescription glasses traveling – OMG! So, I walked down the sidewalk and purchased a $5.00 pair of 1.5+ magnification reading glasses as a temporary solution from a friendly street vendor.

But, what I quickly realized is that these 1.5’s were actually better then my precious $500.00 prescription glasses. This realization has indeed changed my life. No longer am I constantly papering my once every two year prescription reading glasses. Being very careful not to scratch them. Having to remember where I put them all the time. These days, I dont care about my glasses anymore. I even abuse them, drop them, lose them… forget about them, leave them in the car – all the time now. I have glasses everywhere.

Its gets even better, now I buy $10.00 glasses in three packs from Amazon.com. In all different styles, colors and magnifications. One for the garage working on my bikes, another 2+ magnification for close up reading in bed, one to dress up, one pair to try and look cool. I am so happy.

What a joke I have been living thinking I needed ‘prescription’ glasses all these years. I am now free at last to see how I want to see.

Overdue blog update

Wow, what a bad year for blog posts. It has been one of the busiest years in a long time for me so I guess this is my excuse. I do have a ton of pictures and stories from a couple of road-trips out west. Each place deserves its own post so before I got started, I felt it was good time to reevaluate John’sOcean s as blog.

Stay tuned, have some good ideas for out west places to visit – in a truck or van.
Best – John

Time to Fly?

A few weeks ago I started to take flying lessons at my local airport, WVI. I haven’t committed to getting my private pilots license yet, as I am still evaluating if I like to fly, be high in the sky in a small plane. Last Tuesday I had a lesson on a very, very windy day which kind of shook my nerves but Thursdays lesson in a slightly bigger and newer Cessna 172 felt just right. I have a long way to go before getting my license but I feel more excited about the challenge every day.
