Top Secret Satellite Photos

Thanks to some old connections at CentCom and an educated guess at the GPS coordinates for the facility in NE, I was able to briefly repurpose a couple of satellites and get these spy photos of the much rumored Portland-built bakfiets... Special thanks to the boys at the National Reconnaissance Office (NRO), National Security Agency (NSA) and Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) for their continuing support.

someday these ugly ducklings will be a beautiful swan!

That tubing looks pretty agricultural.

For some unknown reason I can't seem to subscribe to your blog. Is there some problem on your end?

Looks like 4130 ChroMo tubing in the picture. Same stuff they make airplanes and high end steel bicycle frames with. I suppose you could use them for irrigating crops out in the field. LOL Now that would be one badass farming set up.
