I have decided that OHSU is going to get Crawled. Given there are plenty of babies doin some crawling there but after my extensive perusing of the donated magazines in the facility I have come to the conclusion that there is a serious lack of manly/interesting magazines. So today and maybe later into the week I am on a mission. I have packed up old issues of Crawl Mags in my backpack that I have read 20 time and dont need anymore. The plan is to infuse them into unknowing stacks for some like minded sucker with nothing better to do. Hopefully it will brighten up some fellow wheeler's day or get someone interested that doesn't know what we do. Anyway the plan is to take pic's of the mag stuffed somewhere and the place it is stuffed. should be fun........at least for me ;D report o follow
My life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body... But rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out and loudly proclaiming... WOW! What a Wild Ride!
Ok mission kinda accomplished. Got three placed. It is harder then it looks. Now a days there are so many places you cant get to that have waiting rooms but you need to know someone to get past the lady at the desk. I am a pretty good talker but I must admit I even got shut down a few times today but got three
Third Floor cafeteria
"quite room" on the 9th floor. not really what I was looking for but there was a Nat Geo there already.
Kids need Crawl too. I figure start um young and get um hooked. plus kids have parents too.
We were pretty busy today so I didn’t have a chance to spy any new places to make any deposits BUT. Double checked my spots from yesterday and low and behold what mag was a gentleman reading in the “family waiting room” !! CRAWL. Boohay.
I no one had swiped the other two. So far mission is a success hope to place two more tomorrow. Oh and my awesome bother in law (who became a father for the second time Last Saturday) came to visit and brought be the new issue of Crawl so I have tow of those now and came deposit the most resent issue. Too cool.
Then later after dinner I went for a walk. wondered into an elevator went down floor, found a sky bridge, wondered some more and found a whole new set of waiting rooms....left them this.
One of our nurses asked where I had been with only our camera in hand so I had a chance to share with her what I was up to and she loved the idea. She shared with me a few more places to go tomorrow after I fill my bag back up with Mags. Almost out though.
I love this thread. I have waited in many a hospital waiting rooms with nothing to read. Paul, I'm just going to say it. Your a "Pioneer". I can just here it now... "How do you get in to the sport of wheeling?" "Well, I was sitting in the hospital waiting room because my sons appendix exploded and there was this magazine. Calling my name. I picked it up. Started to read. Now I have $50,000, over the top buggy with rear steering. My son is doing better now. Thanks for asking."
Keep up the good work. Across the nation it will spread like wyldfire.

Wyldman: The Cowbell... If you are a club member and you're on one of our wheelin' trips. If you get stuck on an obstacle and have to be pulled out by your winch or someone elses winch/strap. You earn the Cowbell.

poorboy: Wyldman, I got to see the passing of the bell at the meeting and learned quite a bit about the tradition.
