Oot and Aboot

Summer is flying by. Busy with kids camps, broken tractors and a trip to Deep Creek Lake. Still, I manage to get out on two wheels. Some with a motor and some without.

Ride On!

Think we'll ever go back?

I think Sgt. Jennifer Watson passes the test.

"Above and beyond the call of duty."

United Breaks Guitars

The story behind the song.

Not that I ever fly much anymore, but if they are so cruel to guitars, what do you think they'd do to banjos?

With the wife and kids out of school, you'd think the pace of things would slow down. But most of the summer is as busy as the rest of the year, with camps and trips out of town. We went to Ohio last week. It felt strange, because for the first time in a long while I didn't bring a bike. That was probably a mistake, but it did open up the opportunity to drag others out on some adventures.

While out there we visited Ohio Caverns, and took a couple of nice hikes.

One in Clifton Gorge,

and another in Massie's Creek Gorge.

In between we ate Mom's good cooking and caught up with family. Not so bad I guess.
