Go over last weeks class. How did it go for JimBob with his trip to Costco?

Work as independently as you can, but you may ask for help if you need it.

This week Jim Bob is going to Walmart on w 11th to buy a video game. . He’ll leave after work on Wednesday at 4:00 and will go straight there. He is hoping to spend as little time as possible at Walmart  and will catch the next available bus back home to his apartment, (probably around 5-ish). This has potential to be the easiest bus plan yet 🙂 .

  4. Last week the OODA loop- is this a helpful strategy?  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ihJCfuZfoT8   Start at 2:32min.  Discussed after OODA loop (military use:  observe, orient, decide, act) Being aware of exits, Position yourself (in view of bus driver), look for odd behavior, gut feeling, know where you are, be aware of body; breathing, heart, gut and have a plan (phone, walk to safety, don’t engage, pretend to talk to someone, …).

This week JimBob is invited to a Halloween party with his friends from work and costume is REQUIRED. BUT, he doesn’t have a costume. There is no trick-or-treating, as he’s too old for that, but they’re going to get together and watch scary movies and maybe dance/play games (naturally still social distancing). So JimBob needs go to the “Sprit Halloween Store” to buy a costume. The store is located on:

2165 W 7th Ave, Eugene, OR 97402

He’ll need to leave after his shift on Thursday. He get’s off work at 4:00pm and will walk to Dads Gate station. After having gone to the Spirit-Halloween-store he’ll need to go straight home. He lives close to Churchill high school.

Please make a bus plan for this trip.
