So true .... BUT

What would we do if there we no changes.

Look back 5 years and say... Wow no changes... still riding the same bikes and doing the same thing... NO need for a POG thread.

Change is always there ....
Now we can debate if that change was good or bad...

BTW - IMHO - NOTHING is to close to trailer.

Yea verily.

Not tryin to be a Debbie Downer here, but it seems to me that most Change in life is for the bad, the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics is cold hard reality after all. In my advanced old age I've felt the effects of Entropy and they're unpleasant, to say the least.

Love while you have Love to give. Live while you have Life to live.--Piet Hein's Memento Vivere

I reckon we can all agree that one specific change for the bad since that pic was taken back in '08 has been the loss of Hooli McGee, Dak and XT_Thumper. Luke and Dak relocated but XT has been MIA since SweatFest I or thereabouts...

I miss those guys

Amen sir.

and thanks for my first lesson of the day - I have always quoted Heraclitus there, yet never knew it was a pre-socratic greek philosopher that was originally credited...

And what is good, Phaedrus, and what is not good? Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?

Winters? It's still winter nearby.



This picture was taken about 8 hours (and 365 miles) before the panorama in the canyon.

Well it does show you really look at the photo and that you know enough to recognize the difference. The triplanes were middle of the war and had a lot of "up grades"...
