It's funny how my music taste changes and sites like youtube and pandora only accelerate the change.

Right now I primarily slide a trombone, when I'm not mixing and recording my friends. So most my music gravitates to a group sound. Thanks for passing Whitmore along. I'll keep him mind, when I trade my mandolin for a dobro and a busted beer bottle. I've wanted a dobro for a while now but there's just too many hands in the cookie jar.

I agree with a few things that you say, the crowds are certainly not my thing either, I can observe and objectify as well as anyone I guess though.

I do not consider myself a biker, im just a guy that likes to explore, camp,, and I have found a bike to be the faster/cheaper method for me, and I prefer to ride than drive to work 340+ days per year.

as far as law abiding.. see, I was trying to not dabble a foot back, but I swear, on my ride home today, I avoided the main traffic, came up a back road, and lo and behold, a chain of cruisers, mostly 2 up, coming up a hill to a stop sign, every single one of them ran the stop sign to avoid stopping on the hill, thus stopping me and the cars behind me from progressing as we should have down the lane.

that stuff is bullshit, and I understand that it doesnt bother you, it wouldnt bother me if I were 200 miles away either.
But im here, I work every day too, and I have to come and go in that mess, so Id at least like to see SOME basic respect of the traffic laws here.

Oh, ive been told there have been many accidents, and possibly already some fatalities as well, I hope those reports are false....

Oh and you asked earlier why I didnt complain about the other factions of bikers, or spodes.

well, if 200,000 bmw riders in whale foreskin suits showed up and crowded my local starbucks, I can promise you, I wouldnt be silent about that either.

FWIW: I don't do large crowds too good and large bike events take me about 1-2 hours and I've seen what I want to see. Nothing against the events or their riders in particular, just the way I'm wired. Case in point: A friend talked me into filling a vacancy and going with him to Sturgis in 2010. Even gave me the rooms of the other guy that cancelled. So... I went. (Was riding a Deuce at the time.) We stayed at Keystone. Had a great time on the ride out... enjoyed the Black Hills on Mon and Tues. On Wed, he wanted to head for the actual Sturgis part of the Sturgis thing. I told him I'm not too much into that scene, but I'd give it a shot. We arrived about 8 AM Wed. I was there a total of 1 1/2 hours... just long enough to find/buy the wife a T-shirt, pick me up a shirt and take a pic of mainstreet. I called his cell phone and told him it was nothing personal but I was outta' here. I then went riding the rest of the day and saw some great stuff he never saw. Next day I rode something like 250 miles to see Devil's Tower while he did his bike week thing. Oh, and I only lasted 2 hours at the one and only BBBQ I attended (2008?). Too much crowd. I'm a dual sporter at heart. I like mountains and solitude... maybe a small group.



See above. Just figure if they're on two wheels and not flagrantly breaking the law... then it's all good. Wish the biking world could get together and join forces instead of dividing over preferences. We (all bikers) would have a lot more legislative clout then. That way, we help (calls/letters to Congress/votes) the other facets of biking with the issues they face and they help us with ours (land use, for example). Guess that ain't never gonna' happen though.

I want a banjo, and to learn how to play one.

and I have an older bluegrass musician at work ( deadeye for those that know NWA music)
he will teach me the banjo and has been trying to teach me the harmonica too, music is hard for me to learn.

I swear, calculus was easier.

trombone... wow. not my cup o tea, son played trumpete for a while, I couldnt get it. I played sax in jr high ( alto) but I was no good at it...

I think I will stick to playing the youtube.

I have no idea where they thought they were going, and I wondered what the ASP and Rogers cops did when they ended up with a shoulder full of pirates at the accident scene!

I have to work tomorrow night, so we're heading over there early Saturday. Staying at the Erbie Horse Camp with two of our horses Saturday Night.

Saturday afternoon, we plan on riding Cecil Creek Trail, then down to Cherry Grove and Parker-Hickman to check out the old buildings.

Sunday, the plan is to ride Erbie-Comption Road > Bench Trail > Sneeds Creek > Old River Trail in a big loop back to Erbie.

When we were over there three weeks ago, we didn't have any troubles with ticks or chiggers.

Water levels are super-low. It's a good time to be on Old River Trail, since a lot of the crossings won't even get you wet right now!

I'd like to own a banjo, but I'd never pay the price for a "good one". those suckers are expensive. I mess around at times with a harmonica but not very often. Bass is what plucks my strings and that's why I enjoy the trombone. Right now my wife is teaching our children how to read music and play a horn. We have 5 clarinets, an alto clarinet, a flute, 3 trombones, a piano, a guitar, a ukelele and a mandolin. I've been thinking a set of drums and a bass guitar, are next on the list..
