Back home after a 6 day road trip north with a day and half hanging out with all the Skid Kings fellas, Tim @Tim the Skid, Jeff @Jeff the Skid, and Frank, @Frank and Pam Skid Kings, and the rest of the northwest folks, Justin @JRE, Rick @RidinRelics, Dave @Boris who surprised me earlier with one of his custom reflectors. Thanks Dave. Evan, @prewarmachine, Mark @redline1968, Bud @bud poe, and Kerry @Sportyworty. The hospitality of the hosts, father Tom and son Ryan @Burleycreek, and the beauty of the area is why we come up. We watched a few clips of Easy Rider and Crossroads in Tim's Airstream trailer, warmer for my wife to hangout. Tim also entertained us close to midnight, but this time with his electric guitar that was owned by the host, Tom at one time. Some of us couldn’t sleep, so we were up early and just hung out wee hours of the morning. Very fortunate that the day of the swap was dry. And just by hearing from others, plenty of good quality stuff was had. Met a few more CABERs for the first time, Jay @1817cent who brought some killer prewar Schwinn goodies. Thanks Jay for the hoops and tires. Jim @oldmtrcyc with an incredible collection, Gary @SKIDKINGSVBC founder of the Skid Kings, and @fatbike who educated us on a frame none of us couldn’t figure out. I learn so much when I come to these gatherings, and when you meet cool people and attend a vintage bicycle swap meet during a road trip, it’s just plain fun. Sharing a few pics I took.

possible trade on a Jacobsen bicycle, google national motorcycle museum jacobsen for more pictures of it and history. Message me if interested in a possible trade, Dan
Hi Dan, That's a bit new for what I collect. However, I'd trade UP for the 1911 Excelsior single.
