Had a great , relaxing ride backroading it to some favorite haunts, but first a eh lunch at the Smoke Shack... you will need lot's of bbq sauce to give any kind of flavor to the pulled pork as Linda commented, she gave me a sample of hers, first time I ever tasted BLAH bark.. sad.




I fared quite a bit better, my Cajun Fatboy had plenty of flavor from the greasy but tasty sausage, that grease served to add flavor to the pulled pork and chicken, throw in some onions and peppers and you are good!




Ok, so once again we were off, stopping in Andover at the Keniston and CilleyVille bridges. At the CilleyVille I left a little something for a member of of a motorcycle forum I frequent to find..a small skull, like the one I wear in my beard.. a good pulled pork sandwich at my expense hangs in the balance, and sorry it is just for him.



Sometimes I get me historical information confused. I thought that another horse was buried in a human cemetery in Wilmot Flat, turns out there is a memorial to Billy yet another civil war horse whose loyalty inspired their owners to go to lengths to request that their equine companions be buried with or near them. , but no, instead Billy gets a plaque it stands alongside what was the Chase farm, but I did get Chases grave anyway.



At the junction of 103A and 103 I stopped to admire the nice restoration of what is known as the center meeting house.



Down the road aways in Bradford it was good to see the Bement re-opened



It was a beautiful day for a ride and we ended up taken in eight covered bridges, but now, as I was when leaning against this tree earlier.. I am tired..

CD - Went riding along Rt 103 yesterday. We watched a Motorcycle show as about a dozen motorcycles stopped at the store on Salisbury Corner (Rt 127 & Rt 4). My friend just bought a new cruiser and he is having a ball. It was a great day to riding.

My only complaint is the State has ignored so many miles of back country state road. They are just linear frost heaves and broken pavement. Rt 27 south of the Salisbury crossing nearly shook my teeth out. Some of these roads are actively dangerous.

Good to see you back on the Forum.

It is "trebuchet", and I will put up, anyday, my M1841 6-pounders against it. I only need one shot. (well, and a lifetime in prison).
Let's see a trebuchet put a 6-pound ball through 4 feet of oak. Kids stuff.

Perhaps it varies by location, but the graveyard I will end up in will not allow anything but human remains, unless they are cremated. Pissed me off. I am taking my dog with me, when we both expire. (I am planning a mausoleum for the past three of them). Two have already passed, over the last 30 years. I think the laws vary by state.
