Milestones & a picture show


On July 11, the odometer on my mike rolled past 5,000 miles. I've had it for not quite two years, meaning that I have averaged a little over 7 miles of riding every day of the year the time I've had it. Four days later, I was headed west on I-20 to do some photography near Abilene and I passed 60,000 on my truck. I've had it for just over three years, so I'm averaging less than 20k a year... WAY down from my years of 25k+ miles when I had the Durango and before that, the Ram Charger. I guess marriage and fatherhood have slowed me down some...

5k on the bike, 60 k on the truck

Picture show

A few photos of some of the stuff I've seen during the first half of July...

I finally caught UP's George Bush locomotive! UP4141 displays Air Force One colors in Fort Worth on July 16.
