The Place beyond the pines

well, I took a little trip this past weekend: I went to Memphis for an interview. Not much picture taking. This is the only other shot: well, I lied: And now, back upstate. Modern Lock: and old style: Say hello to Lawrence the Indian. "Schenectady" is Mohawk for "Place beyond the Pines", and yes, the current movie is set and was filmed there. Speaking of pines: And I guess I'll have to get a later start next time:

Riding with the Dead

I was debating what to do this morning. I knew I wanted to ride, but the weather called for 20 mph winds with 50mph gusts. I decided on the Corning trail. Need to march off those pounds? I do: Stopping at the Troy lock gave me another idea: Not many folks out:
From 2009-01-01
and Cohoes falls is really going: and I made a stop at Dunkin to Honor Nancy and Don with a boston creme: and tomorrow? a different kind of ride:

I took a trip out to Canajoharie, NY this afternoon. It started out as a Indian village, and is now a small town best known as the home of Beech nut foods. And there's a world class art museum there, too: The Arkell Museum was started by one of the founders of beechnut as a way to bring some culture to the backwoods. He even went so far as to hire a classical pianist to play on lunch breaks. It's right on the Mohawk: A dummy light: The Plant building is still there: Nice waterfall: The cinders were a little too mushy, so I stayed on the dry portion of the trail. I turned around at the next lock: Unfortunately, Beech nut built a new factory down the road: Hope you enjoyed it. I'm keeping plenty busy here.

Hopping down to Memphis Town

Yes, folks it's that time once again: As usual, I started out at Albany. I'm flying the Friendly Skies today: No more 737's to CLT: Since it's good Friday. I stopped in the Prayer room: An amerijet flight to CVG: Free Wi-Fi! Cape Air to BOS: Then I went down stairs and waited. Soon, we were off to Newark(Commutair Bombardier Dash8-q200): Ashokan Reservoir in the Catskills: Ski Run somewhere in Jersey: Gear down: Garden State Diner: Where I had the Blue Suede Burger: while wearing my blue suede shoes: Yes, I know I should have fasted on Good Friday, but I reverted to Calvinism this weekend. The gate where Flight 93 on that fateful day: On my way to Memphis (ExpressJet Embraer ERJ145XR:) This was the view the way down: Touchdown in the rain:
