Sometimes I look in the mirror and say: "WTF happened to you?!" Other times I simply say, "Oh, hi Dad!"
Anyway, here are a couple of pics that are 3 generations, the first of which was at my grandson's wedding.


Best regards

I have many photo's of my bikes but not many with me in them.
I follow GCN on my phone ror the inspirational photos and watch their videos and they always shoot some ride in that area. Would love to go back there some time with my bike and enjoy all that scenery and finish the day with a nice pint of bitter. (jealous)

Oh, here's ugly fat me. Great day earlier this year during a 60k ride up in the country.

Jinsrud viewpoint, near Sandy, OR in late August. The haze is wildfire smoke; this is just before it got really bad.

Oh man, you just triggered a whole cascade of memories. I use to fly a Schleicher ASW-19 out of Truckee, CA. Absolutely nothing like soaring the Sierras. Longest flight was from Truckee to Mammoth Lakes.
