just think what it would be like if these down-pours were snow. This 2, 3, 4" or rain over a few hour period would translate to the snow being measured in feet per hour

The main entrance, it brings back memories. My S.O. did a short stint here right out of high school. I was the boy that had to be snuck in to the dorm .

Ship has a pretty nice campus, it has a good mix of college town feel, modern class facilities, and old architecture charm. Here are a few other pictures from my run.


This building was 180 deg. from the Robb softball field. I thought it looked very European castle ish.

The Latitude and Longitude are 40.05794, -77.523008

Best,

And Now For The New Tag.

Sorry it took this long, but the S.O. wanted to go out for a ride and when she wants to go with I don't argue.

So here it is, no additional clues should be needed in addition to the information that is in the picture. They are plenty of twisty country roads but they come with there share of unexpected STOP signs .



Just for some additional, completely irrelevant side notes this was her second "long" ride, we put about 80 miles on that little DRZ. She (my S.O.) is a trooper.

As she reeds this over my shoulder; "Ya, my ass only hurts a little bit."

Enjoy,
willyk57

If you are going to be doing two-up riding, you have got to get a better suited bike. Ulness, of course, this is a plot to get her on her own bike. If so, disregard my last.

Got it!



Wilbur Chocolate Company, 48 North Broad Street in Lititz, PA.
Will post new tag tomorrow.
My daughter Jackie and I got to Lititz about 8:45PM. Took tag photo and had some ice cream from shop across the street. We had trouble finding a WiFi connection, so we rode the 87 miles back home.
I should have a new tag posted before noon Monday.

The New Tag

Here's the new tag:

This statue of Charles Dickens is notable as being the only full sized statue of Dickens in the world. In his will, Dickens specifically directed that there be no monument or memorial erected in his honor by his family and friends, since he preferred that he be remembered through his published works alone.

Unfortunately (or fortunately, as it later turned out), the sculptor who designed and cast the beautiful grouping of Dickens and Little Nell was not aware of this restrictive clause in Dickens's will, thus the statue came into being without the blessing of the Dickens estate and heirs.
When it was completed, in 1894, the statue was shipped to Chicago for exhibition at their World's Fair that year, this being the purpose for which it had been commissioned. When the Fair was over, its directors decided, on account of the statue's subject, to send it to England as a gift from the American people. But when the then-head of the Dickens family, the author's son, Sir Henry Dickens, heard about this illegal piece of monumental bronze statuary landing on British soil, he became greatly incensed, not to say peeved, that the generally clueless Americans (when it came to observing proper protocol, anyway) had ignored his father's very definitely stated and legally binding wishes. He therefore very stuffily (from the viewpoint of the Americans, anyway) ordered that the statue be returned to its source, not even allowing it to be unpacked. On its return to America, the statue languished in a warehouse for several years. At last it was installed at its present location.

Enough with the history lesson. Access to the tag is available 24/7; but it is not in the best of neighborhoods. Be cautious or ride with a friend if going at night. When I was there this morning, there were several street people sleeping on the benches.
