    LD, great story, I see why you won. You have hauled so crazy stuff on the bike.

    Love the Green/Gray valk, have one myself, of course I have completed the supervalk conversion as opposed to the trike, but love them just the same, if I ever figure out how to post a pic, have on with it on the salt flats this past spring. Great job on the report.

    Good looking stuff Tracy! I cook a lot of different things in connection with the BBQ catering business, but have no baking skills whatsoever. I've tried making bread a few times...no joy. Have you started on the sourdough yet?

    Still enjoying that blackberry jam:-)

    Best.....John

    For the ones who know that I have been working to get old metal cabinets in my kitchen..

    We got 2 more in .. But they are only temporarily, as I would want the one on the left to be on the right...Or when we get more put these over by the sink area...

    And YES I still need more .. Looking for St Charles brand....

    What a nice thread. I found it today and scanned the whole thing. It's snowing here today and it was a great diversion. Love how you are always smiling, even with a bug smashed on your face. What a magnificent property you have. I have some of the same pics that you posted. Like the valley shot from the back of the dragon and the vanishing point shot of I-10 on the bayou swamp tour. Keep up the great reporting and congrats on the long marriage. I'm a year behind @ 31 yrs and counting.
