I have everything but the distillery. My choices for grabbing one of those are either a miserable ride into the heart of a college town an hour+ away, or several hours away to the mountains. Neither of these are worth the ride at present.

Next 5

1 - A Roadside Oddity - lots of leeway on this one, but look for something truly odd.
Couldn't find the oddity I really wanted. But there aren't that many rockets in the hood.



2 - A train car with graffiti - if you get busted "installing" the graffiti, post pics of the event!

Just a reminder, if you can't quite figure out how to get to RR cars, riding a CBR down the tracks should NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER be an option.
I think I'm still vibrating. and it was only about 600 yards. :(

3 - A local bakery - nothing commercial.

4 - A Distillery

Topo Vodka is made here. Do NOT ask how many strange looks and sidewalks/handicapped ramps/front porches I rode up on looking for a better angle. Oh well. You get this one. And dear UNC policemen, my bad. Don't hate.

5 - A Brewery

Doh.
Just realized my phone switched back to full size pics. My bad.
Hope no one is still on dial up. If you are, let me know if you like the pics in three weeks.

next five

1. Election garbage. (aka any political sign cluttering up an otherwise nice pleasant bit of scenery)
2. Something military.
3. A dairy.
4. Your bike in water. Be it the middle of the ocean, a lake, a raging river, the oncoming horrible frankenstorm flooding the entire east coast or just a mud puddle.
5. Some type of motorcycle, car, or engine related history museum.

(These are all things I passed or was in grabbing the tags today)

(not nearly as lame as the first one I had - must have been about a pint of water total... )

Best Butcher in the area.


3) City of Tiny Lights - an urban skyline
Not much for skylines here.
This shot is looking north at Dover, the capitol of the state; from an elevated motorway no less.


This shot if from a town near by.


4) Shut Up 'n Play Yer Guitar - a guitar shop


5) Stink Foot - a place where you could buy a python boot - too tight or not

Might not be close to Christmas, but a Christmas tree farm should be available all year long.
