Blog is Moving!

Attention everyone:

Using my shady connections in the internet underworld, I have acquired an auspicious domain name, and I have decided to move this blog over there. Update your bookmarks or whatever to:

http://retrogrou.ch/

I have already copied all your favorite blog posts over there. Many have been digitally re-mastered and feature tons of behind-the-scenes bonus footage, alternate endings, and director’s commentary.

I’ll keep this domain up and running for a while, but all the good stuff will be over there from now on.

If you are following me via RSS, you might want to subscribe to a specific feed, as I am planning to broaden the topics I write about.

You get the idea.

Middletown to Bainbridge and Back

Yesterday was the first warm day in as long as I can remember. I wanted to ride bicycles, and Sloth said he did too. So, we rode our bicycles from Middletown to Bainbridge and back.

We stopped to take pictures of the Three Mile Island power plant.

As we got closer to Bainbridge, we saw signs for the historic Haldeman Mansion. We detoured a bit to check that out.

On the way back, we came upon Shady’s BBQ, so we decided to stop for lunch. This was the best idea we had all day. I heartily recommend the horseradish cole slaw.

Now that we had bellies full of pig, continued our journey. We found a really creepy old stone building that was falling apart. We stopped to take some pictures.

Our route took us past Falmouth, home of the world famous Falmouth Goat Races.

I added the Haldeman Mansion and Shady’s BBQ to OpenStreetmap.

Cold Ride with a Coffee Break

The cockpit of the Cross-Check.  Thermos of hot coffee in the handlebar bag.

Lake MXZ303 cycling boots.  Prevented toes from freezing off, but my feet were still a bit cold.

Cross-Check by the frozen Susquehanna.  The wind coming across the icy water was rather unpleasant.  I hid in the lee of that big tree to drink my coffee.
