108) Bike Series 5/8. My bike journey heads back over the fabled Aurora area known as Oak Tree to visit this box located next to the grocery store and the theater. I can’t come to this area without thinking of the glorious days when Larry’s Market held this space and movies cost a nickel and the snow was seven feet deep.
107) Bike Series 4/8. I can’t tell you how excited I was to find this mailbox. Well, that’s a lie. I certainly can tell you and I certainly will. My data told me this box existed, but because it’s on the NW Hospital campus, I wasn’t able to verify its existence using Google Streetview. I strongly suspected there was no box, but rather just a mail slot in the building lobby (booo!), but I had to check it out to be certain. And damn, look what I found!
106) Bike Series 3/8. This must be an amazingly great location to send letters and packages to far-off destinations, because look at all the choices available. What was most surprising, however, is that while posing for this shot I found that the UPS and FedEX boxes were a bit rickety. Both of them teetered a bit when I put my hands on them. But that USPS box? Solid as a rock.
105) Bike Series 2/8. I ventured up to the most northern target on this adventure, a surprisingly clean mailbox outside a Ross store along Aurora. It was early in the morning, and a lone gentleman was hovering outside the doors waiting for the store to open. I thought it best to crouch down into a sneaky position.
21) Let me end the suspense and tell you right now that no, I did not get the Free Gulp. Nor did I take advantage of the 2 for $20 special. I didn’t even use the ATM Inside. All I did was grab this quick photo outside the 7-Eleven as I passed through the Haller Lake neighborhood. If you want to take advantage of any of these great offers, get yourself up to Roosevelt Way N at 1st Ave NE pronto.
