Thanks. Yes it is a.ittle surprising.
I got friends who carry.
They let the cops know they are carrying when they get pulled over.
Cops response, "That's OK, so do I".
I kept thinking back to the pictures from France and how much I really enjoyed them. I was out of the Army before my daughter was three years old so it made me wonder "what do my kids know about D-Day and the many great sacrifices our veterans have made?" Well, while on vacation last week I made a point to visit Parris Island to see the USMC museum, take a tour of the depot and we watched new recruits train.
Upon returning home we watched Saving Private Ryan over two evenings. It is a rough movie for adults to watch, much less two young teenagers but I think it was good for them to see the terrible things that have been seen and experienced by so many of our veterans, new and old. Thanks again! And the recent pictures just keep on impressing me as well.
We hosted a Horizons Unlimited traveler's meeting at the motocamp this past weekend. I did a slideshow of the trip, and Saturday we did a 150km ride around the area. Was a fun weekend. Today Kelly and I start north, heading near Debrecen, Hungary where we will load the 5 WLA'S in a container, as well as the 2 IMZ'S we bought in Slovakia. Also, there are a couple swap meets in HU this weekend, so who knows what else we will find. Theres no extra charge to pack the container full, so may as well take advantage of that.
Buzludzha, the old Soviet monument on top of a mountain
Shipka, another monument from the Turkish war of 1878
Really been enjoying this report. I think I have seen the Buzludzha monument in a Movie, or maybe another Ride Report.
What a fascinating trip you have here. It's truly EPIC. It combines two of my primary hobbies: motorcycling and history. I really enjoyed every single photo and the nice caption / text that went along with it. I'm hoping to get a week this fall in France, to visit the Normandy and all the historical sites. Oddly enough, you and I were in Romania at the same time. I had to go to a wedding there (July 3 - July 9), but I didn't get a chance to ride. One day, I may get to do the Transfagarasan and Trans-Alpina by bike. It'll happen sooner or later. (Romanian / Canadian here, so I go back to the old country quite often).
Thanks again for sharing and I'll keep checking up on new posts! Safe riding! Wonderful wonderful trips. I you find yourself in Romania again, you must do Trans Alpina. It's equally EPIC to the Transfagarasan.
My first time over the transalpina it wasnt paved yet. I was on a rigid harley with a hand shifter. Damn that was fun!
I've done it several times since, but that first one was the best!
Looks like Camp grew up quite a lot! Problem with "official" tent camping year around is already solved?
Yes, we bought the land next door and changed the usage to campground. Pain in the ass ,but worth it. Plenty of room now!
We stopped in Pleven, Bulgaria at the museum of the war against the Turks in 1878, and then north into Romania
The top floor has a really good diorama
Crossing the Duna, and getting eyeballed by gypsies when we take cover during some rain
I used to live in Petrosani when I was a little baby (and my dad was actually still in university there). After that we moved to Alba-Iulia. You should def. visit Alba-Iulia and it's citadel ("Cetate"). It'll be worth it.
