Waldport, Oregon.

August 8th, 2004

Yesterday we decided we should have a beach day. Despite our efforts to not drive much we still drove about 50 miles. This stems from an affliction we both suffer from. F.O.M.S., or Fear Of Missing Something. Our friend Dr. Bob Daniels was the pioneer researcher in this area; in fact he is the one who gave this particular disorder its name. F.O.M.S. can be debilitating for Underaged RV-ers hell bent on seeing 3 countries in 52 weeks. This affliction is in large part the reason that we have been putting on so many miles thus far.

F.O.M.S. lead us to retrace our steps yesterday, back to the lighthouse we had visited the day before. We hadn’t had time then to check out the tidal pools and so we HAD to go back. F.O.M.S. is not always a bad thing, in this instance it lead us to see some truly amazing sites. Here are pictures from the tidal pools.

Coastal Shots.

See the surfers?

After the pools we finally made it to a beach. However, even though the skies were much sunnier today, the winds were just as strong. Dan surfed in his kayak for a while, the waves at this beach weren’t as friendly though. After an hour or so of continual sand blasting and wave blasting we called it quits, and retreated to the camper. We were just about to leave when the kite surfers showed up. We had to watch. These guys were surfing waves wind assisted and then jumping like 40’ in the air while spinning. It was amazing, we have to try it. I think if I hadn’t been so cold I would have tried then and there, but generally I have to really enjoy a sport before I am willing to freeze while doing it. I think this will have to wait for Mexico.

Last night we played a game of chess, (current stats are Dan 1, Rachel 1, stalemate 1) made fish tacos with fish we bought at Pike Place and drank a bottle of Two-Buck Chuck. Really RV-ing is the life for me.

Near Coos Bay
Yesterday we were treated to an amazingly beautiful, and apparently rare, day of sun, warmth and no wind on the beach. This will be our last day at the ocean for over a month, what a great last day. The pictures tell the tale.

Campgrounds in this area are pretty pricey so we took a page from our buddy George's book (if you don't yet know George, check out his blog under our links "visit our favorite vagabonds"). We enjoyed our day and evening at the beach and then after dinner we parked at Wal-Mart for the night for free. George never pays for camping and he figures why do you care where you sleep, you're asleep. Works for us. Now we are heading towards California. We have a hot date in Tahoe on Wednesday.

If , perhaps you want to bypass a proxy server, be it while at work or at school, you have two options open up to you. The first is straight forward and easy and involves only your web browser. The second is a bit more complex but could be necessary if the first solution does not deliver.

Should you be lucky enough, bypassing the proxy at your work or school may be as simple as disabling it in your web browser. Check the internet connection settings of your web browser and check to see if the proxy server details are put in place in your web browser. Whenever they are, try to disable them and connect to online again. Many timesthat with some luck the proxy server is disabled but you are now able to access the web normally.

Many schools or offices block specific websites (such as social networking or classified sites) and furthermore this is usually why you may have trouble accessing them. They did this usually with the goal of stopping students or employees from wasting valuable time online visiting unproductive websites. However, your school or office does not and cannot block the entire internet. Instead they block specific websites determined by their site link. Therefore, you are free to access a proxy server which then redirects your connection to your desired website allowing you to access the blocked website even from work or school.

To bypass a proxy server, first check to see if your web browser at work or school is setup to access the proxy. Disable it and try again. As a last resort, you may need to setup your own elite proxy in order to access websites while at work or school.
