It doesn't show up well on the map, but we were in Michigan. My brother-in-law lives in Grand Rapids and we parked at a state park at Gun lake near there. Saw President Fords museum and other things in the area. It is a pretty state. North Carolina, we have never been to and probably never will. I am going to try to get a semi-permanent route set up. I have a standing invitation to volunteer at Steamboat Lake state Park and I want to set up the same in southern Arizona. Four months volunteering at each end and two months between to travel.

halfwrite, I just saw your post and will be making the point of 70 in May, just about 63 days, but who's counting. I like your attitude and feel much the same, I still don't feel that old and don't intend to start feeling old for another 20 years. My dad passed away
around 2 years, 2 months ago at 97. I hope to make it for a while yet. Happy 70th and many more to you sir.

72 here and a month ago finished repairing a car that sat in mu garage for a long time then helped a younger man cut down a tree in my yard. When we finished that I started on another tree by myself. 25' up with a rope and chainsaw. I topped it and hauled all the branches to the dump. It took a week and then started the rebuild on my 16' vintage trailer. Don't want to stop, must keep going and get up out of the recliner. I did ride a Valkyrie motorcycle until an accident a year ago so my new hobby is woodworking in my shop. I like it and making things in wood if a fun hobby.

Happy Birthday from it seems the younger in the group, 65. My dad told me when I was very young that "everyday you wake up on the right side of the grass is a good day, enjoy it". It took me a long time to understand what me meant but, as always he was right. Note the name of my boat "Sea's the Moment".

There have been any more birthday wishes ad I am thankful for them. Biker Art, I can work just as hard as I could when I was 20. I jut don't get as much done.


As to Ryder, we got him just before we started fulltiming. We decided to call him Ryder because that is what he does--he just rides around with us. We got him from a dog pound in Lakewood CO, so we are not sure of his breed. But, I think he is a poodle crossed with a garbage disposal. I know he is Ethiopian because he is always hungry and he eats bananas and tree roots.
