Monday, 30 April 2018
Colorado SpringsDenver, Colorado

Weather: Day – Partly cloudy with a high of 72 °F (22.2 °C). Winds S at 11 to 16 mph (17.7 to 25.7 kph).
Night – Mostly cloudy. Winds variable at 4 to 9 mph (6.4 to 14.5 kph). The overnight low will be 45 °F (7.2 °C). FULL MOON.

Groggy, Sir Oisin crawled out of bed around 6:30 am and finished up the most recent episode of “Fear of the Walking Dead”, “Last Man on Earth” both of which had surprise endings Oisin thought. How will this turn out? he pondered. “Next week” he supposed. Oisin fell back to sleep for 45 minutes. He awoke again and watched the most recent episode of “Naked and Afraid” and memories of his trip in the Rain forest with the Prince telling him he can’t go on that show because Cian needs him and dad needs to be there for him. He wandered into the main house, Lord Jesse was an angel and had thrown in his clothes he needed for the week into the dryer. Oisin took a nice hot shower which was more enjoyable than he expected. Temperatures rising, sunny warm and clear day ahead. He fried up two eggs, 2 hash browns, and the last of his bacon. Took the last of the lemonade mix and made up a glass. Then blogged, journaled, and prepared for the week. Dishes, laundry, and some house cleaning.

At 9:30 am Oisin went on a delivery to Urban Steam. The place is usually bustling, but this morning, not too bad – even though the order took a bit to get ready. [ 1.5 miles to pickup, 4.1 miles to drop off ] Oisin was going to juggle two delivery companies to take advantage of a promotion one of them were running, but decided not to as he didn’t have the appropriate change of clothes. He drove back home after the run and finished up blogging the Park DIA review, updated Today’s Movies’ reviews, as well as Technogypsie Reviews.

Another run around 11 am, Oisin drove to IHOP near South Gate to grab an order. [ 5.1 miles to pickup, .5 miles to drop off ] Since it was right around the corner it went quick and smooth.

To Oisin, these deliveries are like a real-time video game – pick up item and drive to destination, pass through the traffic, pitfalls, and near misses to get to the objective location. Get reward of delivery fee and tip. Then await the next quest with end result of building up funds by end of day (points). Each is a unique experience.

During his drives he usually listens to NPR and in-between his runs he blogs, does accounting, web work, journaling, writing, and/or reading. It is an interesting routine. NPR this morning was discussing “reporting and blogging, advertising and content” – How “reporting” and news has changed with the advent of the Internet. How the internet changed the face of the industry. It’s true he thought. It really has. He contemplated advertising plans and content pushes upcoming months to do. They also discussed PBS on Kid shows and content, the problem with YouTube, and kid-content shows. How they model a lot of Mister Rogers and how sometimes what they discuss is not okay with parents at times.

Oisin sees a lot on the street now – more than ever, seeing what was once invisible is now in his face daily. There is a particular homeless guy on the corner of Cheyenne Mountain and Nevada. Every day he lays down on this tiny traffic triangle, not really big enough for a person, and has a sign saying “Carpenter for Hire” leaning up against him as he sleeps, sits, or reads. Oisin doesn’t understand the logic of why the guy chose this spot as its small, dangerous, and not really convenient to give him hand-outs from cars passing by.

Oisin passed him by and hit On the Border for an order. The wait time was long, as several delivery people were waiting. It was a huge order however, so that definitely complicated the timeline. [ .5 miles to pickup, .9 miles to drop off ] Just as he finished that order, another request came through. While waiting, he grabbed a Rockstar Punch based smoothie called Knock-out from Keva Smoothies. It was yummy albeit very over-priced. He could have made that at home.

Around 12:15 pm, Oisin headed over to Fazoli’s for a small order and didn’t have to drive far for that one either. [ .8 miles to pickup, .5 miles to drop off ] Then directly from there he went over to Old Chicago by Tinseltown, meeting up and chatting with a guy from Door Dash comparing operations. That delivery went on to a hospital and it was a bit difficult fniding the right lab room. [ .7 miles to pickup, 3.8 miles to drop off ]

Just after 1 pm, was call to Buffalo Wild Wings for a quick delivery. They are always busy Oisin thought. [ 4.4 miles to pickup, 4.2 miles to drop off ] Had a chance to run home so he took it, quickly used the restroom, checked mail, and blogged some. He finished his review on Enterprise Car Rental, and upgraded some of his WordPress blogs.

Around 2:30 pm, Oisin was called out for another delivery, this time at Red Robin. Seems they have stopped giving out free fries with the deliveries or just not to the outfits delivering. They had a double order mistake where a customer made an order, then re-submitted the order adding an item, causing two of us drivers to arrive – the other driver didn’t know how to call the customer or driver support, so i called them both. It was a double accidental order. They said they would cancel it. So a bit of a waste to have driven that far for a no deliver. [ 5.4 miles to pickup, 0 miles to drop off ] Immediately sent on another delivery at Jersy Mike’s Subs. [ 4.5 miles to pickup, 6.9 miles to drop off ]

On the way back coming down 24 from eastern Springs, two lane highway, there was me and another car behind me in my lane on the right, and a slow moving car on left. As I was waiting for the slow car to pass so I could get in the left lane the car behind me moves to the left lane right when I was and races up so i can’t get over, but he wasn’t fast enough. I flipped him off, he flipped me back off, then he gets back in the right lane speeds up to try to pass me, but the slow car is in front of me, and no room for him to edge in, his stupid road rage cost him the exit so he missed it. Served him right Oisin thought. So many people thinking of themselves as royalty or something and so angry when they are not the first person in line. This is such a “me” generation, sickening Oisin’s stomach. What happened to the world he pondered.

There were no calls with company 1, so he decided to edge in some orders with company 2 – He got a call to Wings 2 Go operating out of Flat Irons restaurant. The customer said it was her first time using the app, and said she would tip on the app – but never did. Company 2’s customers rarely tip so it was expected. One of the reasons Oisin is thinking of leaving them. [ 6 miles to pickup, 1 miles to drop off ] Then company 1 called him to La Baquette which was an easy run with a decent tip. [ 4.6 miles to pickup, 1.4 miles to drop off ]

Oisin slipped in another request from company 2 to a McDonalds, again no tip, surprise … surprise. [ 2 miles to pickup, 1 miles to drop off ] About a half hour later, Company 1 rang and had a run to On the Border. Easy run, item ready to go, and decent tip. [ 3.3 miles to pickup, 2.9 miles to drop off ]

Another run for company 2 at Pho Brothers which is one of Oisin’s most favorite delivery spots. Though no tips from the customer. [ 2 miles to pickup, 3 miles to drop off ]

As Oisin was driving back down Nevada avenue, he spied a little remote control toy car in traffic racing in between two cars in the left lane. It would stop at traffic lights, swerve between cars, and stop – race up – slow down as needed to stay in traffic. He suspected the car behind it to be the culprit to the mischievousness. He was really surprised that no one had driven over the toy.

Around 5, did another drive with company 2 hitting McDonalds, easy run, again no tip. [ 1 miles to pickup, 2 miles to drop off ] Oisin thought it was fine because Company 2 was running a “guaranteed” $13/hr promotion – but turned out they didn’t pay out. So each of these company runs were roughly $3.25 each no matter how far or how long they took, horrible because customers not tipping as the company doesn’t promote nor encourage it. He doesn’t see how this company says in operations. They do take a big cut percentage of the meal and in addition of the $5 flat delivery fee they charge – they take $1.75 of the delivery fee as well (and give their drivers $3.25 unless they run a promotion) – cheap bastards.

Oisin dropped by home to make himself a turkey burger and fries for dinner. He caught up with Lord Jesse then towards 6 pm hit another run for Company 2, this time to Little Nepal. Delivery went fine with no snags outside of wear n’ tear of the vehicle, again customer didn’t tip. Surprising because its a bit more upscale of a restaurant. [ 2 miles to pickup, 2 miles to drop off, 11 min drop off ] Oisin decided to call it a night for company 2 because they so far weren’t crediting the promotion and was worried they would live by their name.

Back to driving for Company 1 as his break was over, he ran over to Romano’s Macaroni Grill and chatted with the lovely waittress while awaiting the order. [ 3 miles to pickup, 2.2 miles to drop off ] Then on to Qdoba Mexican Eats for another order. [ 1.5 miles to pickup, 2 miles to drop off ] Inbetween the runs, stopped off at a smoothie place for their “Knock Out” smoothie made with Rockstar punched. It was okay he thought, could have made a better one for himself at home.

Around 7:00 pm, Oisin headed downtown Colorado Springs to pickup at Red Gravy. Then delivered a little ways away. [ 1.5 miles to pickup, 5.1 miles to drop off ] and then right after sped over to Qdoba Mexican Eats for another quick run. [5.5 miles to pickup, 3.5 miles to drop off ] and right between 8:30 and 9:00 did two back to back runs at Saigon Grill [ 2 miles to pickup, 3.1 miles to drop off ] ; [ 3.1 miles to pickup, 3 miles to drop off ] The little boy at the restaurant was playful and kept tossing his finger spinner toy into Oisin’s delivery bag. His dad told him to cut it out, Oisin just laughed reminding him of the Prince. He say the kids play area with tv and toys, bed to take naps on … reminded Oisin heavily of Prince Cian’s bed / play area under the display counter at the Leaf and Dragon – oh the challenges parents go through with lack of day care and bringing their kids to work. He loved it. So much better for children to have more time with their parents when they can bring them to work with them. Very traditional, old ways view yeah, but healthiest. Teaches kids how important work is in life. Sadness over-swept Oisin, he misses the Prince coming to work with him.

Oisin had a long text battle with company 2 who ignore the fact that they aren’t paying him his “guaranteed” hourly promotion. In addition they charged him twice for transfer fees.

Nearing the final hour of deliveries, Oisin was called out on two more during his last hour from 9-10 PM. He went and picked up some ice cream from Josh and John’s Ice Cream and delivered it to the happy soul who ordered it. Great choice Oisin thought. [ 1 miles to pickup, 3 miles to drop off ] Then the final delivery and pickup was at Felipe Got It. Usually closed early, they are trying late night Mexican delivery since there are not many options in the Springs the staff said. He too was a delivery driver, and they compared notes on companies. He said to expect more night deliveries from Felippe. [ 3.4 miles to pickup, 6 miles to drop off ]

After the last delivery, Oisin ran over the 10 pm off time. This worried him as he wanted to get to the 10:15 pm showing of “Traffik”. He wound up driving to Carefree Circle Cinemark instead of Tinseltown. He sped on over to Carefree Circle, running late about 20 minutes – he figured that’s okay since there are about 20 minutes of previews. Enroute he heard a great song on NPR called Kula Shaker: Infinite Sun which he really really liked. It was a take-off of the Pagan chant “She Changes everything she touches”.

    “Infinite Sun by Kula Shaker”
    [Chorus]
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    She changes everything she touches
    And everything she touches changes

    [Verse 1]
    She changes everything she touches
    And everything she touches changes
    And everything she touches changes
    And everything she touches changes
    Cha-cha-changes

    [Verse 2]
    We’re gonna be a menace in the will
    We’re gonna find that things that thrills
    Out of the darkness, beyond the void

    [Chorus]
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    Cha-cha-changes everything she touches
    And everything she touches changes
    Cha-cha-changes everything she touches
    And everything she touches changes
    And everything she touches changes

    [Verse 3]
    It’s hard a way to say her name
    Everything she touches cha-cha-changes
    It’s hard a way to say her name
    Everything she touches cha-cha-changes
    Cha-cha-changes
    Cha-cha-changes

    [Chorus]
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle
    We are one in the infinite sun, fly like an eagle

    [Verse 4]
    Everything she touches cha-cha-changes
    Everything she touches cha-cha-changes

Oisin finally pulls up to Cinemark Carefree Circle Theater and found parking right away. He pulled out his Movie Pass and tried to check-in on the app, it wouldn’t let him. Movie Pass said he had to update his “app” first. Granted Oisin’s phone only had 12% battery life and no space on the phone for an update. So he had to delete Netflix, and reboot, then update the app. Twenty minutes went by and the check-in for his already late movie was now off the boards for self-purchase kiosk as well as the ticket booth agent. The ticket agent said she couldn’t get it back up. Oisin pleaded, so she got her manager, and he just let Oisin go into the theater as it was empty and all the reserved seats were free at his picking. Oisin was joyful. He has been missing movies since he’s been working so many hours.

Traffik was an interesting movie about a couple about to become engaged during a special retreat at a cabin in the mountains but is soured by running into conflict with some bikers. It turns out that they hunt them down doing a murder spree along the way. Eventually a high level, international sex trafficking ring is exposed and its a fight for its survival. Challenged by a reporter who exposes the crimes and dangers, waist deep in trouble herself, the truth is exposed. Oisin enjoyed it.

After the film, a 15 minute drive home, it was past midnight. The main house was dark and all asleep. Oisin returned to his tiny house and passed out watching the most recent episode of Supergirl the series (2015-present). Unfortunately, Oisin lasted 15 minutes before passing out to sheer exhaustion.

Chronicle 28: Tales of a Looker, Shopper, & Delivery Guy

The adventures of Sir Oisin Leaf working flexible self-managed commercial work as a “Looker”, personal shopper, and food delivery guy. Beginning the lifestyle and role first as a single parent needing flexibility for time with his son, now a career to stay in charge of his life and have the flexibility needed for the adventures that await him.

APRIL 2018:

04.06.18: Movies, Deliveries, and Trip Planning

Friday, 6 April 2018
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Weather: Clear and sunny. Day – Cloudy with a high of 45 °F (7.2 °C) and a 70% chance of precipitation. Winds variable at 4 to 9 mph (6.4 to 14.5 kph). Night – Cloudy with a 65% chance of precipitation. Winds variable at 4 to 9 mph (6.4 to 14.5 kph). The overnight low will be 23 °F (-5.0 °C)..

Sir Oisin passed out around 2 am from exhaustion. The double-feature of “A Quiet Place” and “Blockers” was good, having a dinner of chicken tenders, fries, and a large coke-zero at the Tinseltown theater. He used both his and the Prince’s Movie Pass to cover admissions. He misses his movie buddy. Sir Oisin drove home contemplating life – how much he misses his son and how all this is so unfair. He also reflected on how he’s not being kept informed of where Prince Cian is going to school or who is watching him while Lady Etain is working. She sent some emails on “child care” she was touring (not pre-schools – as she ripped him out of current program for her ego of having him back) and each school selection is getting desperate – one is a 5 am to 10 pm child care – obvious with such hours the teachers are drained as are the kids, its merely a drop-off for parents who don’t have time to parent. The other was a bilingual immersion daycare for chinese and spanish. Not sure why she’s considering that, if it was Gaelic-English it would be one thing. Frustrated, Sir Oisin drove home. The house was quiet. He downloaded the most recent Arrow, Supernatural, Siren, Magicians, and Lucifer. He managed to stay awake to “Siren” (his most favorite series at the moment) and fell asleep to Supernatural while processing receipts for taxes.

He awoke again at 5 am and finished Supernatural and watched Arrow. He snoozed again until 7:30 am, then grabbed a shower, slices of Pizza for breakfast, and got ready for his shift at 9 am.

At 9:14 AM Sir Oisin got his first delivery call for the morning, headed over to La Baguette for a residential customer. They had the order ready to go. Parking was easy as Old Colorado City was quiet.
The delivery was far away as a hotel up by Woodmen road. But it was clear, sunny, and seemed to be warming up. Afterwards, he drove over to Trader Joes to grab some orange juice, lemonade, and snacks for the road.

As delivery calls were slow with GH, he turned on his other UE delivery app, grabbing one during the down time inbetween his scheduled deliveries … a McDonald’s run to a student. No tip, as usual with this service. He then got his next call.

At 10:50 AM Oisin headed over to Perkins Restaurant & Bakery – Colorado Springs for a residential customer delivery up near the Citadel Mall. The skies became overcast and temperatures fell. Sir Oisin was curious about the temperature changes. The delivery took him way out towards Powers – far east of downtown.

At 11:26 AM Oisin headed over to IHOP for a residential customer. Light snow started to fall, and the skies became foggy. He was quite curious with the weather shifting so abruptly, he didn’t like being on this side of town as it gets snow even when the foothills don’t.

At 12:00 PM Oisin headed over to Buffalo Wild Wings for a residential customer. It was snowing much more and getting pretty cold out. Sir Oisin, being the Viking he is, still refused to put a coat on. After the delivery, he started heading home towards the foothills so that he could take his lunch break at his tiny home. Of course, just as his shift was about to end, he got called for another.

At 12:50 PM Oisin headed over to Odyssey Gastropub for a residential customer. He hoped this one wouldn’t run too long as he was looking forward to his 1 pm lunch break. It didn’t so he headed back to his house to finish laundry, make some lunch, get some taxes done, and prepare for his upcoming trip. It was a short lunch hour as he got called again.

At 2:20 PM Oisin headed over to Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza for a residential customer. The snow was much heavier now. He was very curious what the afternoon forecasted so reviewed it on his phone. Hoping his evening would not have problems with freezing rain.

He remarked at how unsettled he is about “apartments” and apartment living. They just seem like cardboard boxes built atop one another with very box-like lifestyles. Certainly not for him. He also reflected on the drivers on the roads – if they are not stoned or drunk, often not paying attention on their phones or tablets, most of them seem ego-centric and into themselves, appearing so self important that they must go first, be the first car here or there, and have the God-given right to go into traffic wherever they please, regardless of who they cut off. The suburbs, the traffic, the concrete jungle taking over nature, advertisements, signs, commercial real estate – very disgusting. The world a cookie cutter of destruction and development.

At 2:56 PM Oisin headed over to Red Gravy for a residential customer. A very friendly and cute waitress was on shift. He headed off to the north of town to deliver.

At 3:20 PM Oisin headed over to Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza for a residential customer. Unfortunately he drove all the way to the downtown location when it was the north side of town location instead. The waitress said there was no orders for that customer. He then raced through the snow storm to the north end and picked it up. Lesson learned he thought.
Immediately after that delivery, he was called right back to the same restaurant.

At 4:00 PM Oisin headed over to Il Vicino Wood Oven Pizza for a residential customer. The waitress recognized him immediately and got him the order. It took him again right across town to the east side. He hates the east side. He pitstopped for lunch at Subway grabbing a meatball sub, cookies, and coke. His sub-maker was singing Renaissance / Medieval tunes – making him guess she’s a Rennie.

At 4:24 PM just while getting his own sub/grub at Subway, he got the call to go to the competitor of his lunches’ fare. Oisin headed over to Jersey Mike’s Subs off Woodmen for a residential customer. He scarfed down his sub and cookies before arriving. As he delivered this order, it became quite apparent it was dropping in the teens for temperatures, and he needed his coat, hat, and gloves as he was shivering after dropping off this order.

At 5:02 PM Oisin headed over to Pho-Nomenal for a residential customer. The freezing rain was getting bad as his windshield iced up and made it hard to see. His defroster was broken. Pho-Nomenal asked him if he wanted some water, it was welcomed and refreshing. The scents from this restaurant were true to its name – phenomenal. Definitely on his wish list for new restaurants to try. It was a physically heavy order – first of its kind, felt like he was weight-lifting. After dropping this order off, the freezing rain became unbearable. Sir Oisin had to start scraping his windows every other traffic light.

At 5:38 PM Oisin headed over to Red Robin for a residential customer order. It was crowded beyond belief. He met another delivery driver and they both revelled in their angst about the weather conditions. After dropping this order off, Sir Oisin was far east of town and the snow/freezing rain was unbearable. He could not see. He could barely make it between lights without having to pull over multiple times to scrape the windows. Just as he scraped it, the windows were frozen over again. Fifteen minutes into his last shift, he had to cancel it for the night. He barely made it home. He got a call in to Prince Cian who was at Starbucks with his mom, embedded into his cartoons on the kindle, and not wanting to talk to dad as he felt his viewing experience interupted. This was frustrating to Sir Oisin. Fussed about the weather to Sir Paul and Lord Jesse as he met up with them. Exhausted, he retired to a bowl of Chicken noodle soup, Chef Boyarde Ravioli canned goods for dinner and rented “I kill Giants”, passing out early as the snow fell.

04.05.18: A Quiet Place and Blockers

Thursday, 5 April 2018
Colorado Springs, Colorado

Weather: Day – Cloudy with a high of 64 °F (17.8 °C). Winds from ESE to SE at 4 to 9 mph (6.4 to 14.5 kph).
Night – Cloudy. Winds variable at 2 to 7 mph (3.2 to 11.3 kph). The overnight low will be 40 °F (4.4 °C).

Sir Oisin passed out around 1 am working on taxes, sheer exhaustion even though he started drinking Coca-Cola again for the energy and time management. He worked on taxes while watching Ash and the Evil Dead series off Netflix. He awoke again at 7 am with enough time to get ready to go do his “look” at 8 am, meeting at the U-Pull-and-Pay. He arrived at 7:45 am, no one around, and the yard not opening until 9 am. Finally around 8:05 am a tech came out into the parking lot and he was able to coordinate with him. Unfortunately the car he was supposed to take pictures of for the insurance company was sold to the junk yard over a week ago, so has been picked and pulled already. No license plate, no engine, etc. So he called corporate, and they said they still wanted pictures of it. So he and the tech walked out to find the vehicle in the rows, and took his photos, did the VIN verification, and submitted the look. Then Sir Oisin sped home to grab his trailer, raced off to Ford, and got a vehicle VIN check on his vehicle so he can finally transfer it from Oregon to Colorado. Back home he did some errands and got ready to do food deliveries again.

10:30-11:30 (10:56) am Sir Oisin’s phone did the cow bell ring for a GH Delivery from Subway to a customer at the DMV. The subs were ready upon arrival. After delivering for the DMV there was a bit of time it seemed in-between deliveries, and lines were short at the DMV. Oisin decied to wait in line to get his trailer tags converted from Oregon to Colorado, a much needed chore. It was smooth sailing. He got a request for another delivery just as he was finishing up.

11:30-12:30 pm It was a GH Delivery from Jersey Mike’s Subs to a residential customer. Afterwards, hunger got the best of him. One of the toughest parts of doing this delivery work for Sir Oisin was the delicious meals he was delivering and having to smell them all day long. He had some time between deliveries, or so he thought, so he slipped in a Chinese buffet which just after he paid for the meal and prepared his first (and only) plate got called to another run. He scarfed down his selections and raced off to the next gig.

12:20 – 1pm Oisin headed off for a GH Delivery from Red Robin to a residential customer. It was ready upon arrival. It was a bit of a drive to get to the client. Skies were clear and sunny though so it was a good drive minus construction delays.

1:10 – 1:45 pm GH Delivery from Buffalo Wild WIngs to a residential customer. The cute waitress wasn’t there unfortunately. 1:50 – 2:30 pm he headed right back to Buffalo Wild Wings for a pickup and delivery to a residential customer.

On his way back from the wings delivery, between 2:30 – 3 pm he received a GH Delivery from Dale Street Bistro to a residential customer. The Dale Street Cafe was a historic house converted to a restaurant. The food smelled delicious.

During his 4-6 pm dinner break, Sir Oisin got to have a 15 minute chat with Prince Cian over Skype, let Princess Aine and the kids say hello to Cian as well before starting his next delivery. The Prince was high energy running around in circles creating a racket. Sir Oisin certainly misses the little Prince. Life is just not the same without him. A year and a half of solid time with him before this time that the Prince is spending with him mom certainly hurts his heart.

6 – 6:30 pm GH Delivery from Qdoba Mexican Eats to a residential customer. In between these deliveries, Lord Jesse requested Sir Oisin to grab a Pappa Murphy’s pizza on the way home for dinner, so Sir Oisin sped over to one he was passing and popped it in the car. Ready to deliver to his roomie.

6:30 – 7:00 pm GH Delivery from Uri Sushi Grill to a residential customer. Definitely one of the sushi restaurants in town that Oisin hasn’t tried yet but is on his list. After delivering Sushi, he raced between orders to rush in the pizza to Lord Jesse, Lady Demi, and the kids then sped back off to the South gate shopping area for another Qdoba run to the same client.

7:00 – 7:40 pm GH Delivery from Qdoba Mexican Eats to the same customer again, apparently they said the restaurant put too much queso on it the first time. After delivery, his shift ended at 8 pm so he decided to check out some of the new movie releases out after work.

At 7:50 pm Sir Oisin hit Tinseltown and used his Movie Pass to get tickets to Blockers and “A Quiet Place” for a double-feature using both his and the Prince’s cards. The double feature was definitely what he needed that evening.

Mileage: 100 (90 business, 10 pleasure)

03.05.11: Part 1 – Pirates Invade Denver

Saturday, 5 March 2011
Colorado SpringsDenver, Colorado

Oh the life of Pirates and Piracy as was the focus of the day for Sir Thomas as he headed off to the Denver Museum of Natural History for its Pirates! Exhibit. Even though “Pirates” are romanticized in this day and age, and dastardly beings in history, there is something about the iconic “Pirate” that triggers Sir Thomas. The challenging the 1%? the sense of adventure? or is it the treasure? He has the same romanticism about Gypsies, who too, are like Pirates, just those on the land. Part of his adventure Down Under is to figure this all out. What was this crazy dream that created Pirate Relief?

It was an early morning indeed as he had a quick breakfast, said bye to Lady Allison and Princess Astranna setting sail for Denver. He met up with one of his best friends, Lady Christina in Denver and her son Prince Danni, heading off to the Museum together. Parking wasn’t much trouble, they found a spot quickly.

They went in to see the Pirates! exhibit, a fascination of Sir Thomas as he recently started the Pirate Relief organization and was soon beginning his epic quest Down Under to live, breathe, and swim as a pirate setting sail of Captain Cook’s replica ship, the HMB Endeavour to experience what it would be like as a Sea-Man. So this exhibit was of particular interest and he learned a lot from the displays. They had some fun moments exploring all things pirate … the information set on display impressed Sir Thomas and made him very excited about his upcoming Tall ship sailing experience coming up.

They then wandered into the wildlife exhibits so he could get some learning about the flora and fauna he would be encountering Down Under …
