Stop for a cold one...

I am a hearing impaired rider living in Sackville NB - just on the border of NB and NS. You will pass near here one way or another. PM and I'll try to arrange to ride with you for a while, maybe we can share a brew.

Wow, she just pours the coffee beens right into there huh? I've had grounds in chocolate but not whole beans. Looks good. Probably smells great too.

Now the real question, is that Ice Tea sweetened or non?

Sousse??.... dunno if I can ever stomach those head cheese (wonder why they call it that..must taste as bad as it sounds).. Your trip sounds great and I'm looking forward to some really fantastic stories up ahead!

Querries to some of your questions...

Camera: I use a Panasonic Lumix 10x optical zoom; 28mm wide

Hard-Tack-coffee: my Frau melted 5 bars of 70% cocao chocolate in a pan at low heat...this consistency was poured over laid out evenly distributed expresso beans in a pan. To hasten hardening place pan if refrigerator then cut into bite size pieces. Guaranteed to get your fix at about 300 mg a pop depending of course of how many beans are in the bite size.

the tea at lunch with the Souse: it was semi sweet

About my profile: I will try to express myself a bit more about my perspective but lately have been thundering along USA's Interstates also known as... "Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to
travel from coast to coast without seeing anything."(Charles Kuralt),
in order to make some headway for Brunhildes much needed shoes.


Thank you all for your encouragements, suggestions ....

I'll be watching (Reading) this one for sure, by the way I just put the same cabinet pull in our kitchen...

Same pull, same bike, different wife.

Dear Readers......

Got nuthin' good to report except a few trash pictures which hardly have any meaning. Rode through the PA contry side, got lost: GPS must have gone off. It rained up State PA...rained in NJ, NY. Nothing in Connecticut. Then rained again in Taxaschussetts. I have never in my entire life seen such congestion; road work...accidents...chicken neckers...RV's ...massive rush hours..aggressive drivers...Man, I rode as defensively as I could and within the speed limits. Thought people are staying home a bit after all these gas prices which are sky high....$4.79 gal for premium in Mass. I am basically 60 miles from Boston and will be heading to Max BMW in NH for Brunhildes new shoes. Stay around...things will get better...


Riding pose...


Fueling up....




Taken of the Susquehana river while being stuck on the bridge due to maintenance....NO flooding here like Ole' Mississippi down south

Bridge Maintenance....see the low clouds a comin' > RAIN


WTF..more traffic>>>



Got to the NY border and noticed pizza places everywhere> to make my Frau happy I had a NEW YORK pizza...there's no better pizza according to my Frau, bar none...ate 2 giant slices washed it down with diet coke in hope to negate the calories...ha,ha...







Holed in this place for the night as it was raining.....tiny Days Inn run by a very nice curry smelling Pakistani...couldn't understand him..so we had to gesture by waving hands in the air...and making the rubbing finger gesture(money)..he got it and so did I..$71 American dollars for the night with Wi-Fi...





Best view I ever had from my bedroom window....

ahhh, dreadful day! bet the pizza lifted your spirits (better than them Souse you had yesterday for sure!) Hate traffic & construction..wonder why bother having construction during the daytime. Should be limited to night work only...but then taxpayers will complain, nevertheless!! You need to get outta there as fast as you can and get up to Canada but then, again you'll probably encounter road construction in places up there too. Great post today...enjoying reading about your adventures and it just gets better!

Thanks for sharing your ride report through a different perspective. Eyes are alot more important than ears. Great report. You define what is great about this site and those who gather here.

Well, you got my attention all the way from Australia.

First thing I must tell you though, mate, they are not prawns, they are shrimps (baby prawns). When you get sick of riding on the wrong side of the road come downunder and see what seafood is really like.

Keep the pics coming, I'm soaking up some fine red wine wishing I was on the bike behind you.

Good luck.

Trev

Excellent Start

Really nice start. It will be refreshing to get a "new" perspective on the sights from a person who has highly refined senses from a lifetime of developing them.

GET OFF THE SLAB!! I hope your new shoes in NH push you right onto the byways and two-lanes that are all over the US and our northern neighbor.

I really look forward to the pictures and report from Nova Scotia as it is a place I really want to visit.

Thanks for sharing.
