glad you liked it

Pecked every letter with one finger that can type. I asked women who gave me story to return it so I can try to post pictures that are on Orignal story diary.

Looks like CR was on back towards the end of March... Maybe he will see this thread if we keep bumping it.

Good to see this thread back near the top. It's one of the all time classics. Maybe some more of the newer members will notice it.

It has to be commented on regularly.
That's how I discovered it.

Blast from the Past!!

What a great read,
The pinnacle of motorcycle technology in 1916 on an 800 mile trip.
Trying to follow his route on a modern map would be useless as I imagine so many roads change and some are abandoned for better routes!

Notice that the Ferries was private enterprise and not some bloated government program, people was self reliant and didn't look to the government to fix it.
My how things change, how many would love to be able to cross the gulf of time and visit these bygone eras, this diary is a glimpse rarely seen into the past that history books and classes will never teach you.

Thanks so much for taking the time to type it up and sharing.

This bump reminded me that I had copied all of the posts into one file, back when it was first posted. I just uploaded that to one of my blogs. Here is a link to the full diary, with photos.

FWIW:

Spike, I dig the blog post. I just wish I could get the pictures to zoom or enlarge (maybe I just don't know what I'm doing).

They might zoom if you ctl-shift-+ . Otherwise, try right clicking on the image and copy the image. You can then put it into a file and zoom it as much as you like. Cool pics, no?

I was talking to a friend this past week and told him about this thread. I thought I'd dig it up and bump it for those who had not seen it before.
It was a classic.
