Post Found Machete由ose Quarter Transit Center

While cycling back to North Portland from downtown on Saturday, I was more or less keeping pace with a cyclist across the Steel bridge. When he took off onto the Rose Quarter Transit Center path, he dropped a machete on the road behind him. I picked it up and tried to follow him to return it, but he kept running every single red light along the way. A couple of miles up Williams, he finally disappeared (Maybe he was using the Mario Kart speed boosts).

If you are the cyclist that dropped the machete, I will hold it for you for one week. Please give me a call by next weekend at 360.901.9811. If you can properly identify yourself and the dropped item, I would be glad to return it.

I'd be asking myself what a cyclist is doing carrying one of those. Maybe turn it in to PPD.

there are a lot of bike lanes that need pruning...

I sure wouldn't want to run over that thing though...

Well, my machete is accounted for. Hmmm, I wonder why a cyclist might want to have one of those myself... Hmmm....

BTW has anybody killed those damn black locusts on N. Interstate near Fire on the Mountain recently?

Yeah, Keith, I'm sure you couldn't resist cutting loose.

Of course I'm a fan of edgy humor... (I have a lot more knife puns).

Stay Sharp!

Do you also turn in leatherman tools to the PPD?

No need to turn it in because it doesn't really have any value. You can pick up a brand new machete at Harbor Freight for $4.99.
