Goodbye Camry

So long to a great car. It's amazing how this car has held up and maintained it's value.

Model A

My Dad's 1931 Ford, Model A sitting in front of the house that I lived in from 2 until I was 13.
A couple of shots of the car driving around Woodlawn Park.
Despite being 80 -years-old, the car drove much like a modern car. Electric start, three speed manual transmission and brake where I would expect to find one. However, with no power assist on the controls I found that I needed to plan turns and stops plenty early.

What a fun drive; both my brother and I, full sized men, were able to ride the rumble seat.
The temperature gauge is a thermometer in the radiator cap. Here's a page with more Model A specs than you likely care to read.

Congratulations New Zealand All Blacks World Cup Champions

New Wheels

2011 Subaru Forester. So far we love it, like camping, KD Lang and comfortable shoes.

Hobo Camping The Luce Line 2011

Hobo camped the Luce Line. Our hobo dinner pictures are best appreciated expanded. Steak, brats, a couple of different types of chicken and beans all cooked over our camp fire. Wonderful. The cookies, candy, and sampler of freeze-dried stroganoff, beef stew and pasta Alfredo were good too.

Long Haul Trucker loaded. At one time in addition to gear and food, I had over two gallons of water strapped on. Water weights 8.35 lbs per gallon;
I estimate I had over 20lbs of liquid alone on the bike.
Sean's Nob trailer and cyclocross bike with +plush seat.

George's single speed Trek 700 with homemade trailer.
It was brilliant to put a backpack on the trailer as a bag.
Q's single speed Cross-Check with Bob sporting
a clever homemade handlebar bag.
Jared's Salsa La Cruz with new compact crank and cassette.
Nice size Jandd frame bag for easy access to stuff.Looking forward to next year!
