 Melissa Always gets a kick out of Nate wearing his bad-ass cowboy shirt, I didn't notice he had it on in the Christmas family portrait sent with Jackie and Mike's Christmas card. I showed her and she immediately busted out laughing and pointing it out.

You're my hero Nat-a-tat-tat

Heather, you looked nice too, but you need a signature shirt. I'll see what magic I can pull out of this glorious state.

Oh and I am having trouble finding the p90x under less-than-legal-routes. I may have to just order it.
Enjoy some pictures, and old magazine covers/ads

Tarded buck

Thought it had two antlers. It had one and a half. Guess it lost one in a fight and was just growing one back. Unless he works out and doesn't care about trying to look symmetrical. Either way he is meat now.

made an old harddrive into an external, for backing up pics and movies. Found this critter-ass bitch while I made sure nothing of value would be lost during format.

Cool homebuilt seen at the Swapmeet

The red bike is a homebuilt, that took some old codger 3 months to build, it uses an old crowley motor, and has the radiator in one saddle bag and the battery in the other. He started it for me and was a blast to talk to. He built the frame and it houses the coolant I think he said. 
This sporty was entered in the show, and I would have voted for it, not because it was any better than the other bikes that were restored beautifully, but because the dude blasted by me on I-40 on the way to the show. I think this was the only bike actually ridden to the show.

Seen in CT

Rick sent me this. In his parking garage at work. Guy took the sidecar tub off his Ural and put a toolbox on it.

Flat track race in Lebanon, TN

GeoTagged, [N36.20076, E86.27178]

Vintage Flat Track Racing. even the riders were vintage. Lots of fun though, but too noisy for a baby. Looking forward to seeing something like this again next year.

Blue Ridge Parkway

Gonna have to ride it. Click the panoramic I uploaded from some dudes flickr account. We need to do this asap. Only really been through it years ago with Melissa during the fall leaves color change. I need more riding. We could Hit the Dragon and get some more States under your belt. Others are just pictures that caught my eye.

Thinking of getting rid of the Yamaha

Thinking it would be good to trade in on a newer car. Camry is shitting the bed and nickle and dimeing us to death. Besides, the shadow is good enough for the runs I normally make, and I like it better. Any good in parting out the Camry? Should we just donate it? I dunno.

Pure Michigan

GeoTagged, [N41.75249, E84.99335]

Finally made it into Michigan. Running late.

Indiana? Why not

GeoTagged, [N38.20234, E85.73644]

They say Indiana only adds 40 miles and 20 minutes to the trip. It may, unless you drive through Indy and then around it on the 465 loop and then turn around and drive the loop the other way looking for the exit to i-65. doing that adds waaaay more miles and time.

Pass the KY

GeoTagged, [N36.46480, E86.68509]

Drove through KY, forgot to get the pics of the Dinosaurs.

Frankenmuth Auto Fest 2010

We got there late but there was still a ton of cars, much cooler than the Woodward Dream Cruise as far as getting to walk around lots of cars. Shops all stayed open late and there were 4-5 bands all over the main strip. Goes for this entire weekend.

Notice the little baby in the driver's seat of the Optimus Prime Semi at the beginning of the video..

Also, neon was EVERYWHERE!
