Mark and Connie and Barry put on another great cruise. This one was a leisurely drive on Rt. 21 to Ripley and then on to Pomeroy using the back roads.
When we cruise Gauley Mountain it's usually a tire squalling, engine roaring, g pulling event that requires all of your concentration because we are driving our cars close to the limit. It's great fun but this cruise was one where you could cruise along and gather your thoughts about how special our cars are and what a great country we live in.
I thought about our freedom and all of those who have gone before so that we can enjoy this freedom. Ken Rubin being with us was a good reminder of what some have endured for the rest of us. Thank you Ken and all of our veteran members!
It's a dichotomy for those of us who enjoy these British cars and then celebrate our independence from the very country who brought us these cars. I suppose that was a long time ago and the wounds have long since healed.
I created a panorama photo from 3 separate photos. Even though Ken Rubin and Rick and Prema Ray were also on the cruise the software couldn't resolve their photos enough to include them in the panorama. You should recognize me, Mark and Connie Mason and Jamie and Angie Chenoweth in the panorama. The other photos are included as well. Barry McCoy was also on the cruise but I didn't get a photo of him.
Barry was a great host and arranged seating for us at The Wild Horse Cafe. It was a really neat place and we enjoyed our meal.
Please have a safe and enjoyable 4th.
