Looks like Butch gets to hang out another day. It's sleeting and laying in the roads and I try to avoid the frozen stuff, esp when it sticks.

Grab

The dread pirate "Ned" had been hiding out for a while here, but he knew it was time to make a run for it.



He doesn't like to stay in any one place for too long, or the Coast Guard will haul him in. So he said "Shiver me timbers, it's cold out here. I'm heading west." And off he went.



He passed that Berkeley Springs castle, and got a little lost. He was at an interestion of two roads, Detour and Ball Run, and spotted the perfect hideout.



Here's what it looks like from the roadway.



Pirate's Harbor.



If you get him, stop next door and say hello to Rider Jim in the trailer behind my bike (if he's not out riding).

Maybe I'll find a way to add some encouragement. Gimme a few days to think about it.

I went to grab it yesterday but my phone decided to suck so I couldn't take the required pics, so I just came home


I think I'll be buying a proper camera soon for back up.

Here's a good deal on a great little camera.

I have an older Canon 10mp, 4x Optical, identical looking case, that has treated me very well. I was thinking of buying one of these as a spare.

I've got an older Sony to use for now (which I had in my hands prior to going out, grrr), but I'm probably going to spend a few dollars on a nicer camera in the next couple of weeks.

The iphone works (most of the time) and is convenient, but the pics are usually so so.

glad to see Ned on the move on ........


on a sad note my boss's son had his son on the back of new dirt bike and was riding around and not sure what happened but had an accident and the grandson 10 or 11 years old, head hit a tree... neither had a helmet on.... the boy was flown to NOVA.... so keep the them in your thoughts and prayers.

Unfortunate to hear. Hope he makes it ok.







I lost a friend (of a friend) because he wasn't wearing a helmet. He just rolled the bike out of the garage to check something real quick and the throttle got stuck nearly wide open and he ended up hitting a parked car. He was a skilled rider but it just got out of control that fast.
