    how
    I
    missed
    this
    thread
    before.

    Thank you for taking us along mang.

    The Road

    We leave behind the ones we love for it. Spend our last dime for one more mile on it. We sacrifice the skin on our knuckles to keep our wheels rolling on it. Go through the worst weather to ride it. We look for it to solve our problems, to ease our pain, and forget our troubles. We make best friends on it. Lose best friends on it. We destroy our bodies when we fall on it Patch ourselves up to stay on it. We want our friends to join us But we’ll gladly ride it alone. We long for its embrace like a lover. Return to it time and time again Like an old, solid, best friend It will always be there for us.

    Ain't that always the way! For years I commuted by ferry to Manhattan passing the Statue of Liberty twice a day and never once did I go and visit it. It seems that sometime you don't really appreciate what's next door until you leave for a while.

    Safe travels!

    It IS indeed, but it's not mine. It sums it up for a lot of us.

    I found it on Mitch Cotie(s) blog awhile ago and I assume it's his but I'm not sure and I haven't been able to find it since.

    Check his work here

    http://www.mcotie.com/

    His stuff is all gnar!

    ps

    Have you found any winos yet? :D

    You wouldn't think you'd find a better selection anywhere.:lol3
