Max, I'm the only inmate on this thread w/an up to date Bitch license.

Your grievance will have to be filed w/Skyclad and you'll have to undergo the vetting process to get your Bitch learners permit.

Who knew the bitch license process was so difficult. I'll check with my wife first. She seemed to have no problems getting hers...

Gotta watch those filenames, they all but give it away :) A nice ride out though, I enjoyed the gravel road just past this bridge. Thanks!

So, I get to tag a place now? Is that how this works?

*** NEW TAG ***



Public art is neat, even though I don't quite get it all the time. Sorry I broke the theme!

This is a public installation by John Raymond Henry, placed in this park 1977, in which it's titled after the city it's located in.

When you find the park, hang out for a minute and enjoy the view of the Allegheny River, won'cha?

Thanks, she's a work in progress, most of the time. Decided I was going to ride instead of wrench today.

BTW, WTF is BFE? :)

Nah, took a picture, took the tag pic, then came home. Probably about 50 miles round trip. Not the middle of nowhere, but not quite close :)

I'm from around where you are. It's a little warmer down this way, but usually not by too much! High 30˚ 's.

Wink Drop



I know that there was a drop a few blocks away (and the roads leading to it are not the most inspiring for a ride) but I was getting cold and really wishing for spring. Since the Pirates are still undefeated this season I thought why not recall some warmer times with a tribute to one of the last times the Pirates actually won the very last game of the season.

Yeah, you got me. Left some tracks. Oops :)

Anyway, I was having way too much fun doing this, so I did it again.



He's a creeper, for sure.

Drop it Like it's Hot



I had to take a photo the quickest that I could, because my camera battery died immediately after this. So uh, this is as good as it gets.

Getting here is a fun ride, there is a stretch of fine gravel involved, but it's mostly pretty packed.

Right behind me, that little watch/radio tower is for a lock and dam. This one in particular is named for a Florida Congressman who was born nearby here. The dam splits up (and partially submerged) a state park that's located in the middle of the river. The bridge behind me belongs to a highway that's kind of a big deal in this state. And the road that this is at the end of kind of has a silly name.

Have fun!

PS - My poor old red pig had a slight heart attack on my way back home from taking this, so she's stashed behind a building somewhere in Penn Hills until I get a UHaul to go fetch her :( It's actually a pretty funny location, which I found out after I was trying to explain to my girlfriend where to pick me up. Lost spark for some reason (I think), hopefully it's not serious :(
