For a bunch of Socialists with government-run health care that we happy capitalists are told we can't afford I do seem to see a lot of impoverished downtrodden Canadians with a lot of expensive toys in the US.

Good Karma Part 1

Last Sunday the weatherman promised a spectacular day and for once he was right. When I woke up i just knew it was going to be a Good Karma day - and i was right

I mapped out a route through the adirondacks which I had often planned but never went, so today was the day

I personally use the motorcycle as a form of meditation, others use -


These




And when I stopped in a pull off to eat the breakfast I packed my route was -


Blessed







And the Good karma continued as the fuel was getting low I rounded a curve and -


Score !!!!!!

Great little video. I like the turtles. I can't count how many turtles I've stopped to put them across the road. Always put them to the side they are headed, because they will just come across the road again if you don't.

That pic in your vid (@ 1:35) of the red tree leaning into the shot of the lake is my favorite.
