BigKev, I was disappointed, I was hoping for a another 360 video. :^(

Joe, your 360 video is working and looking good, here's a photo of me taken by my daughter, she thinks I'm having too much fun!

So for the picture just insert, WE, WE, WEEEEE. As my hair in blowing in the wind (notice the fan on the table) and I feel like I'm setting on the top of your windshield.

Thanks!
Wes

Too funny, Wes. That's the way to get the full sensation, short of sitting on the windshield.

Several years ago I took my 35 out in the remnants of the "goliath blizzard". I always thought they made for nice pictures

Joe, thanks for the trip on the Golden Gate Bridge, check that off my bucket list. It looked a lot smaller then I would have thought. And it looked like the Packard isn't having any problems moving with the traffic. So I checked your speed. with the two towers being 4,200 ft. apart and it only took you 61 seconds to go from one to another. And with my third grade education ( Jethro Bodine ) it looks like you was going a little faster then the posted speed limit of 45, I got 46.9449.. Also was that Alcatraz off to the right?

Speeding again.

No, Alcatraz is on the left going toward the City, and may be at 2:01-2:16 of the video on the left side, but it's so foggy, I'm not sure.

Good Morning all...It is going to be 100 degrees today in Scottsdale...so I was up with the sun and finished a small painting project before the sun came over the oversized hill behind our house. I changed clothes and woke up Miss Prudence and off we went for about 10 miles on the back roads of Scottsdale. We passed a number of folks out walking, most with dogs (no cats) and others walking by themselves. We passed one group of cyclers, at least 30, maybe more, and we received a few thumbs up and a whistle or two. It's only in the 70's early in the morning so Prudence did not have to work too hard. We stopped on the way home and topped off the fuel tank, and when safely back in the garage, added an splash or two of Marvel Mystery Oil to the fresh fuel. All in all...a nice start to another day of social distancing. I'll go to the market later, but most likely take the Jeep! Ernie in Arizona

Great outing Ernie. And using the car the way it was intended.

Passing a flock of cyclists in a car is no easy thing - in something the size of a Packard and as they're often wobbling along. I encounter a lot in the semi-darkness on my early morning motorcycle rides. Dangerous stuff sometimes - especially in fog, which I guess you're not seeing much of right now.

Keep the stories coming!

Brian

Good Morning Brian...You are correct...No fog in our area. Most of the cyclists are pretty good around here. They have expensive bikes and also helmets, goggles and gloves and shoes...Me, I have a 40 year old Huffy 12 speed and only ride it around the block, now and again when the spirit moves me!
