Have Beard, Will Travel.

Apparently I suffer, well my wife suffers from it, I've just got some kind of attention deficit issue, so in my wanderings, I wander...

I have decided to make this a thread dedicated to on going Beard related travel by motorcycle. You say "How often do those two things collide?" I tell you, more than you think! Will the thread stick with that topic? Doubt it.

Newest Adventure starts at post count 61.



More than a day trip, less than a... Bike trip, Beard contest and some Tag o Rama too.

Western PA Beard and Mustache Alliance was holding it's 3rd annual beard and mustache contest in Oil City,PA. http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/event.php?eid=125371897504913
As last year's Full beard winner I've gotta go to defend my title...

According to Google maps, roughly 288miles a less than 5 hour trip... I can stretch that out. Instead of just heading up and out from Baltimore (Home) I was thinking about making a run for the current tag in the MD ToR game. Drop was made by
RFlagg42 in Bittenger, MD at their Vol. fire dept. Out of the range of the game's more active players, that tag would sit for maybe a week. Not too far off coarse from OC-PA. As a bonus there had been chatter about a diner.
That was it, had to try.
I left work in the morning and made a bee line to what I hoped would be the new tag. I have shot my tag drop on the way to a tag. It adds to the excitement of going and increases the chance of being Bruced.

Trip Odo at Zero


Future Tag





The GRAB shot

The diner stop...


Tacked on the wall, It's a sign...
And the picture that will make you

Yum, Chocolate Chip

Scenic View pull-off


And me


Took a wrong turn, into Pittsburgh.
Friday afternoon rush hour, just shoved my way through. Pulled into OC-PA in time for dinner.

Tomorrow
road exploration
Meet the other beards, Have a beverage
Contest, in a bar
Celebrate, Have another beverage
TAKE MORE PICTURES

Decided to poke around outside of town.




And here Pithole City is...


Truth in advertising



Of coarse sometimes the pavement runs out.


Back to town.

The twin spires of St. Joseph's can be seen from nearly any where in the city.




Another overlook
, not far from the church.


One of the most popular signs seen in this area...


I think I love PA



Sorry, sign distraction. Time for lunch.


The place is owned by someone who apparently likes small cars and bikes.


The "money" shot

Oh yeah, bacon.

The crew that interviewed me for a documentary they are making "Mansome" Bearded Men vs
Tanned and Manicured. They were interested in the biker/beard connection. I didn't have any insights but I do use it to get through airports. TSA is looking for terrorists not bikers.

Me personally, I consider myself a motorcyclist. Biker vs Motorcyclist is a different thread so...

More pictures in town.













Town of many bridges.

Now on to the Beard Competition

Ya like my super-legal parking?

Nice Mick.
Looks like you might have a shot at scooping up the tag on your way home.

Has anotherguy posted the new one?
Bringing the tag back to Baltimore would really round out this story.

A quick run down of last night's Event, The Competition.

Dave and Nathan, Brothers and leaders of the Western Pennsylvania Beard and Mustache Alliance (WPBMA)

I think the facial hair just might help identify who is who in the next picture
Jack Passion the two time World Beard Champion, Founder of Old Dominion Hirsute Society: Peter Eggers (very soon to be a inmate of this forum) and myself.


The then kicked into high gear. I will skip some detail, for frankly they are hazy now. The judging began.

The judges


1st The Scruff Beards

The winner was the green shirt in the far left.

2nd The goatees

The winner, the guy with a mudflap for a face, Steve aka Stubie.

3rd
:The Musketeer

Peter took top honors.

One person showed for both the Mustache and Free Style categories. Each instantly became winners.


Full Beard was up next. As last year's winner I was tossed in...

Jack was THE Winner!

Then came my category, The Garibaldi

Here I took top honors.


After the contest the resumed and the Beardos got to take a victory ride through town in a API (?) Some 6 wheeled thing from I don't know where, owned by a local, who wasn't drinking... Yet


One great night!

Sunday morning, time to pack the bike and head home...

That is an awesome shot of Miss Liberty. I've seen her out there and have taken glances out at the park on the other side of the river but have never stopped. I know, my loss.

Wish I saw this earlier I used to commute from SoMD to OIL CITY every weekend, discovered some really nice backroads up through Altoona to Dubois.

Surprised you missed the space capsule at the DQ just South of Franklin.

A little history: that area used to have the most percapita millionaires in the world. The theater you captured in your pictures hosted world premiers for movies and new talent that are almost all done in Hollywood now.

There used to be street cars, and upon investigation you can find evidence of them, the cobblestones, and in Titusville(home of the Heisman) the yellow brick roads.

They used to transport pull from places like pothole in huge wooden vats on writhe railcar poor barge, and in the past there was a huge oil spill up river of Oil City, when the spill reached town it caught fire and burnt down the majority of the lower city. They is also an underground"mall" under downtown, where people could go from business to business and not have to cross the dirt streets or deal with the mud or horse traffic.

It's pRetty much a craphole now as both Quaker State and PennZoil abandoned them.
