I can just read the sign on the left, and google "Roanoke river lighthouse". It appears to have a remarkable case of wanderlust for a building.

I decided to use my bike to get about today (it's mid winter here, so it's not getting much use), so I checked in here before I went out. I noticed that the photo of the tag, above, was missing, though its fine now so the problem may have been my end.

Anyway I figured I'd better do something about it and took my camera with me so I could replace the absent photo and move the game along...



Can you believe it; when I pulled the camera out of my pocket and turned it on, I discovered I'd left the storage card in my desktop PC!


So I can offer you a non existent photo
of something being restored to original condition using the methods and materials of original craftsmanship.

But since the current photo has reappeared, I guess my non-photo no longer qualifies.

How strange...photos going missing and all.

There appears to have been an acceleration of the global cyber war in the last couple days. My personal webhost, which boasts 99.xx% up time and an international presence sent me an email saying they were under a major and prolonged DDOS attack and that the server on which my website is hosted won't be accessible for quite some time. I can't even ftp into the file system, never mind connect to the forward facing part of the website over a browser. Other major webhosts are reporting similar DDOS attacks today as well.

You know, if the Middle East and Russia/China were just disconnected from the rest of the Internet, most cyber attacks and malware would just disappear.

how about this?





guy has been restoring it for 30 years! Just got it running last season. He had to make his own tools to to make the rivet's that hold the body work on...I guess you cant get the machine to make those anymore??

Now you will notice I forgot to get the duck parked next to it for the photo..spent too much time taking with the guy..he had a bunch of old European dirt bikes he was telling us about.

here is the restaurant we rode to for breakfast....he was parked right behind Mrs OSJ

I will wait to see if I get approval :)

Totally didn't notice that your bike was missing until you pointed it out as I was admiring this guys rig. Awesome restoration piece. Very unique and way cool. I love things like that.

But no bike...no grab. Sorry. I wish I could give you the thumbs up on such a cool find but that's one rule I am just not going to say it's ok to break and I kinda think most other players would agree with me on that one.

Maybe you can get another shot of it, but this time time with the bike in the picture?

Too bad you didn't get the bike in the pic to grab the tag.

New tag

You bike in front of an elevator. Just happened upon the chance to grab this one. I'd say that it had to be a floor above 1, but that's a bit much.

6th floor elevator:

Looking down from above. From a balcony, the edge of something, etc. Show some distance between your bike and terra firma.
