    we made it to the store not as good as sell as she'd hoped

    like a old country store they have a little of everything

    clothes furniture etc...…..

    I wondered around and then right before we left, I asked a gal if they's quit selling guns?

    she took me down stairs and they had guns everywhere, I didn' t price any because I was afraid I might buy something :lol3


    it was chilly, robin bought a fleece to put under her coat to get home

    we were off again

    Hey Red Bud, I Like your pictures and commentary. Question, where are you keeping your camera when riding to get your quick draw pictures? What type of camera? No gloves

    thx, i'm a gloves kinda guy even if it's hot

    thin/summer gloves it just the wrist thing around my wrist then sorta flipped around my thumb where i can grab it turn it on and snap a pic


    which means a lotta bad pic's


    some folks like to use their thumb then rotate the pic later

    colder gloves i put the wrist band through the wrist band on the camera on the gloves,

    different gloves take different technic's

    a lot of my pic's have finger or thumb in em


    currently using a Fuji xp which some times takes awesome pic's some times not

    that could proably improve if i would read the instructions


    but it's water proof , so far

    hope to get up to your side of the world some day 3 or 4 years maybe, so any thing i shouldn't miss let me know



    & thx for listening to my babbling :ricky

    Well if the camera works that’s good enough for me. Thanks for the info. I’m gonna have to give that a try. In 3-4 years the pacific north west will still be here for your visit there’s a lot of beautiful country to see. Northern Cascades amazing. Ya just gotta do it.

    Have to say - it'd be awfully difficult to get some of the pics that you do with the camera on your phone...
