That time of year has arrived

Amateur radio is taking a backseat to motorcycling, street/sports/wildlife photography, and competition shooting. Both Sue and I are in reasonably good health (neither of us wear diapers!) and we enjoy being outdoors (not a diaper wearing semi shut-in), taking advantage of the spring, summer, and early fall western NC weather.

MC camping + more

Two Wheels of Suches, Ga, Smitty’s in Tellico Plains, Tn and Riders Roost, Ferguson, NC now open.

Haven’t got any info on Kickstand Lodge yet.

No future interest in Iron Horse Lodge. They are pushing out tent campers. Used to love the place. However no more…

Wheels Through Time in Maggie Valley now open!

Besides goofing around on-air today

our ‘riding group’ got together and discussed the upcoming 2023 riding season. Many new destinations and a few revisits are in the works. Several of us find US history, especially the Revolutionary War and War Between the States battle sites, interesting, and heartbreaking. Revisits to Gettysburg, Sharpsburg, and Manassas. New visits to Valley Forge, and Washington Crossing.

However looks like our “big ride” may occur in Alaska! 4 of the 9 in our group are in. We’ll begin working on the logistics in a few weeks, and go forward from there. Riding in Alaska has been on my bucket list for several years now, and hopefully it will be fulfilled.
