Recreation Resources and Tourism in Washington State

July 13th, 2016

Washington State is a splendid place for recreation but no place in the Nation rivals the Pacific Northwest in terms of National forests and parks.  These are great places for recreational activities and the Pacific Northwest has a particularly high volume of these areas including the Olympic National Park.  It is often referred to as “three parks in one” and offers water and winter sports.  The divided areas include the glaciered mountains and high country of the interior, the rain forest, and the wilderness coastline.  Even though the area west of the Cascades is extremely moist the coastal region of the state sports many beautiful beaches that attract many beach-goers.  The official site of Washington State tourism has information on things to do and see through a very thorough listing of available activities including dog sledding, kayaking, paragliding, and llama trekking and there are numerous outdoor activities to be done even in the city of Seattle.

The state of Washington has a particularly large array of possible activities including beaches, snow-topped mountains, and forests for attracting hunters, campers, and hikers.  Few states are able to support both skiing and ocean beach recreation.  The best outdoor activities can be found in national forests and a significant portion the Nation’s supply is in the Pacific Northwest.  Idaho, Oregon, and Washington have some of the largest surface areas of national forests of any state in the country.

The Olympic Peninsula sports many beaches including three that are connected by a triangular trail that includes Sand Point, Cape Alava, and Lake Ozette.  Sand Point is home to a large sea otter population and the area commonly sees whales, seals, and sea lions.  The actor John Wayne believed that Sequim Bay was a perfect place for a marina.  In 1975 the actor donated the land to have a marina built on it and it now displays some John Wayne memorabilia.  Sekiu Trail, also known as One-Mile Beach has many cave opportunities and tide pools.  Fort Hayden, used as a World War II military base, can be visited at Salt Creek on the north end of the Olympic Peninsula.  Two popular beach resort areas along the coast include Ocean Shores and Long Beach, the latter of which is host to the International Kite Festival that happens once a year.

Washington has a relatively large area of national forests making up a total of nine including the gigantic Olympic, which was established in 1938.  The Forest has different regions with different names such as Queets Rain Forest, Wonder Mountain Wilderness, and Buckhorn Wilderness.  It has received recognition for being the best National Park for springtime activity by GORP.  In the northeastern portion of the Olympic National Park lies the Hurricane Ridge Ski Area and in the northwestern portion of the park is the Sol Duc hot springs where one can relax and even enjoy a nice massage from a professional massage therapist.  The Native American Quinault tribe from the southeast section of the Peninsula even offers bird-watching tours by motor-driven canoe.

Mount Olympus National Monument was Olympic National Park’s original name given back in 1909 because of the mountain’s relative bigness.  The mountain is now home to many climbers who like to challenge the 7,965-foot elevation, the highest peak of the Olympic Mountains.  Between late June and early September is the best time to tackle this climb but it is recommended that climbers have practice in crevasse rescue before hand because of the risk of falling into a hidden crevasse.

Amateur Radio Information & Resources

May 21st, 2016

Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, is a hobby and service that millions of people throughout the world partake in. Various types of radio communications are used by participants, called “hams”, for public services, recreation, and self-training. While some may think that the term “amateur” implies a lack of skill, the term amateur refers to the fact that the operators of the communication devices work outside of an official governmental or commercial position.

The practicing of amateur radio did not fully begin until the early 20th century, while origins trace back to at least the late 19th century. There are several different types of transmission by which participants communicate. Voice transmission is the most common form of communication amongst hams. Another form of communication, which dates back to the earliest days of radio, includes radiotelegraphy using Morse code, a system developed by Samuel Morse in the 19th century.

There are many countries that use amateur radio. All operators require a licensing exam in which participants display their knowledge and understanding of amateur radio. There are three different levels of an amateur radio-licensing exam: technician class, general class, and amateur extra class. In order to become involved the amateur radio world, it is best to start by looking for a local club. At these clubs, you can find licensing, operation, and technical information. Newcomers require independent studying by using books or receiving help from a teacher or mentor.

Call signs are a vital aspect of amateur radio. Operators must use specific call signs to legally identify themselves or their station in situations regarding national government issues. Radio amateurs may also modify any transmitting equipment without government permission or certification. As long as technical parameters are met, hams have a lot of freedom with the use of radio equipment.

For further information about amateur radio, visit the following websites:

ARRL (http://www.arrl.org): The American Radio Relay League, or ARRL, is the national association for amateur radio. On this site, information can be found regarding education/training, membership, and how to get involved.

What are some resources I can use to gain self-confidence in myself?

October 2nd, 2013

Question by Philip L: What are some resources I can use to gain self-confidence in myself?
I’ve struggled with my self confidence and self esteem for a long time and was wondering if anyone knew of any books or resources or even advice that could help me improve my self-confidence. Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Façade
This book helped me come out of shyness. It is about becoming a better guy who can get dates but it focuses on self-improvement too as part of the process. But don’t buy into it too much. In the back it advertises for seminars, however I can’t see how to get much more out of this technique.

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/How-to-Succeed-with-Women/Ron-Louis/e/9780735204355/?itm=1&usri=how+to+succeed+with+women

This is an art I’m very interested in. I have succeeded with Kempo (brown belt) and some introductory classes of Aikido. This cannot be totally learned by a book and prior experience is a must. The most I can say is drilling in this book improves body, mind, concentration, mindfulness.

http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Dynamic-Aikido/Gozo-Shioda/e/9780870113017/?itm=1&usri=dynamic+aikido

keep up with the good work, the best teacher is life itself.

But everybody has to accept the fact that this also requires enough social responsibility as well as professional, proper and adequate guidance all throughout as this may also expose the learners into something that may risk themselves or may not be duly right for them.

Q&A: Where are some good resources in building an FM radio from scratch?

December 26th, 2011

Question by electrical2601: Where are some good resources in building an FM radio from scratch?
I want to learn FM radio reciever theory well enough where I can build my own FM radio from scratch without using someone elses skematic. I know it will probably be hard but I know it’s possible if I can be guided to the right resources.

Best answer:

Answer by amansscientiae
Try to find a seasoned ham who can explain the basics of RF to you. This stuff is not so much hard as it is tricky. It is also 10000% easier if you have the right tools and measurement instruments. To build a radio if you have both a spectrum and impedance analyzer is a walk in the park and extremely instructive. You will learn in no time and be an aspiring RF pro by the time you are done. But the same task without that equipment is a nightmare. Personally (I happen to be a professional), I wouldn’t go near any RF circuits without the right lab equipment. But maybe that just shows my age and limited willingness to frustrate myself when I know better.

Good luck and have fun!
