Finally got the old Harley trike fired up!

Well, it is a Harley Davidson. It has 3 wheels. It makes more noise than power.



Still starving for fuel, though. Might just add an electric fuel pump and be done with it. It's no wonder the golf cart industry went 4 wheel. The thing gets a little hairy at speed.

Yes, boys are still in PJ's. It's vacation. I can't explain the glove other than it keeps him off the poison ivy rash.

Couple cool sunset pics (at least on my phone, the pics might blow on a computer) for our last day in the northern swamp. Could only squeeze in a 4-day weekend this time around. Probably do another one before my week in August.

At least you don't have to explain why your son is wearing a fireman's jacket from his halloween costume in the middle of August like my poor mother did.

Looks like a bear to steer.

Looks so cool... I want one, but I'd also need the land to drive it on!

Where is the Northern Swamp located? Lake Winnie? Maine? Billerica, MA ?

Oh, he comes up with some interesting outfits and Halloween costume parts aren't out of the question!

It's not too bad at reasonable speeds. My 7yo did a fine job, with my constant speed reminders. At WOT and swerving around potholes in the dirt road, it's instability really shines!

Central Maine. Any more info as to its whereabouts and I'd have to kill you.

Thanks, T! The younger two appreciate it more than the older two.
