    ^ You go Wildman.

    I'll bet your backside appreciates the new seating arrangement (XR vs DL). :D

    Finally, new tag.
    An old railway station with a new purpose. This one is the Visitor Center for the town of Front Royal Va., USA
    [​IMG]

    Still has some of the old tracks leading up to it with a caboose on them.

    [​IMG]

    I remember when these tracks were still in use in the 70's for steam excursions that came out here from Alexandria VA. for the day. They hadn't been used commercially for years before that.

    I've got to say, I had put a seat concepts kit on the XR awhile back and it is pretty sweet.
    The Sargent seats foam doesn't go far enough forward on the sides before it drops off to the front, for my liking. Its not uncomfortable...it just feels weird. The highway pegs take care of that though. :D
    But overall yeah, I'm liking the Wee.

    Repurposed courthouse. The Old State House, Little Rock, Arkansas. Now a museum.

    EDIT: BELAY THAT, NOT A GRAB. I CAN FIND NO EVIDENCE THAT THIS BUILDING WAS USED AS A COURTHOUSE. CARRY ON.

    Repurposed courthouse? That's pretty neat and interesting. I could tag the one locally but it's just a grass lot now.


    You got this via Crapatalk :D

    GRAB.
    Old Cumberland county courthouse.
    Used for county offices now. Court room is still there and used for special events. I believe it was used in a film once but cannot remember which one.

    Not quite what I was looking for but, hell it's the Eiffel tower. :lol3:lol3

    Looks cool to me. :thumb

    Pouring rain here today and has been for hours. :cry
    Was wanting to go get the NC Tag today but not looking too good for a 2 hour trip.

    I might be able to venture out for this one.

    If it sits for too long. Let the folks with an actual retention pond trip planned have a chance for a day or two.

    I am feeling a little like Ellie Mae Clampitt...I have never heard of a retention pond. At the moment there is no water in Texas to retain! AS a matter of fact, it's so hot and dry in Texas, people will find all SORTS of ways to try and cool themselves off! Evidence from today.....

    I was going to post this:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Retention_basin

    and realized after reading it that what I actually posted was a "detention basin" as opposed to a "retention..."

    Get anything that holds runoff after a storm whether it retains it or releases it...


    And that dude is going to get a nasty rash if he hits the pavement...
