Rode Honda Goldwing trike down to the famous spot named Hillbilly Hotdog. A hole in the wall place near Huntington WV. Beautiful day for a ride.

Now getting ready for going to Marietta Ohio's Sternwheeler fesitvale tomorrow. Fireworks this year should be great. They are going all out for the 45th year of this event. Lots of sternwheelers have already showed up. Should be a blast. Here is a pic I took last Tuesday of the early arrivals.

Sternwheeler weekend was a huge success.
Here are a couple videos of fireworks that truly do not do them justice but gives you an peek
One shows waterfall off the bridge across the ohio river at Marietta. They do this once every 5 years as part of fireworks show.

Congrats. A big undertaking but so worth it. Wife and I did the same 20 years ago. Sure glad we did.

My wife is pressing me to move out of state. Where are you headed if you don't mind me asking? I told her "if" we move it will be my last so better be a great state to live/retire in.

Saturday, trailered from Toledo to Metro Beach Michigan. Took about an hour to cross a 3 mile stretch of Lake St. Clair to the South Channel of The St. Clair River (quartered 3ft head on seas), once in the channel all was good. Ran a couple of the Canadian tributaries. ( My escape to the wilderness). Logged in 4&1/2 hrs running time that day. Spent the night at The Algonac Harbor Club. Sunday the water laid down, 15 min. to cross Lake St. Clair. Probably was my last week-end escape boat trip for the season.:(

Nice boating in 3 the channels and ST. Clair RR! Lots of places to go. Did it for years and years before moving north to Saginaw Bay.

Today I ventured up to Columbus OH to see my granddaughter compete in a gymnastics meet. All these girls are amazing at how well they perform this stuff.

Well, I did something I'd never done until today. I rode my honda goldwing trike
in a VFW ride to support injured veterans. Similar to a poker run but they used dice instead. You rolled 3 die at each of the 5 stops and logged your total. At the end they add up your five scores. Highest score wins top prize. Lowest score got the 2nd place.
We rode over 160 miles of beautiful back roads. Truly enjoyed the ride.
No one was available to boat with us so this was the perfect option for my wife and I.
