Krakatoa

Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Thank you George for posting up today's Sunday Show & Tell! Your sense of humor is always appreciated as well as your mind blowing finds!!

My sons Luke, Zane & I put together a very ambitious road trip over the weekend which involved over 1000 miles of "breaking in" a brand new Dodge Ram rental truck! Leaving at 5AM Saturday and hot footing it to the New London ferry to Orient Point LI, it took three ferry rides to reach our 1st pick in tony East Hampton. There we lassoo'd a very excellent and rare specimen of Spanish dirt bike history! Then we fled like bank robbers out of LI and launched into a red eye run to the Syracuse Super 8 and much needed showers and rest. Up early and well fueled by McDonald's Egg McMuffin meals we then proceeded to our Rochester rendezvous and furthest destination #2 and picked up the Robin and a few other tasty snacks. Then the final flog up through Troy and over Hogback Mountain all the way back to Bellows Falls VT! The fellas are on their return trip back to their home port in Somerville MA. They don't care they are both new and eager drivers so I let them do all the work and gain all the experience by doing. It was high stakes all the way but high reward.

All our effort, planning and perseverance made for an epic trip with some serious fun & finds! We met some great people and characters along the way and most everyone was kind to us. We felt alive again.

It can be done folks you just gotta believe and put your head and heart into it... Make those plans and execute!

Big thanks due our two gracious hosts and new friends Richard & Albert and their families. It sure was a memorable remarkable weekend!

If you've read all this break out the popcorn & enjoy the pictures!!

Cruisin' on my Bluebird
I hate to say it, but.... the only survivor of last weeks fire, was this Schwinn. Lost an Elgin, Pierce, Colson, and a couple of Westfields. All frames warped & the only salvageable chain guard was this. Are Schwinns actually that good or were the rest just a bunch of little girls?
