New website/blog



What's new!

A long time ago (when Facebook was still in school) I had a fairly successful motorcycle website, so I started a new one. The new one got even more traffic, then Apple quit supporting the software, so I started a blog, then another blog to be compatible with the store...that Google quit supporting. Anyway my stuff ended up scattered all over the place so I decided to consolidate everything into one. This will be the last post on this Blog and all my domains (except this one if it says "blogspot"in it) will forward to 66MotorPalace.com over the next couple weeks. This blog was transferred as an archive with images to66MotorPalace.com and I will continue to transfer images from photo albums in the other sites for the rest of my life.

Thanks for reading the last couple years and if we haven't yet, I hope we meet someday on the road!

Winslow Week!

Yesterdays Work

It's 16° outside now but will be in the mid 50s later. The important thing is it's warm inside, I have a working coffee maker, and delicious coffee from Mojo Coffee here in Winslow.

Morning sun

Plumbing
With a lot of grinding and guessing we have all our faucets working properly. I'm not too excited about the finish I chose for handles but they're working and the stems will now accept any handle from "Made in USA" California Faucets
Antique fixtures are a challenge, but after countless hours of effort...water runs and stops.

The building around the corner burned down since our last visit

Shortly after taking this picture I learned the restaurants close early on Sunday

Took this Picture in Black & White mode
It reminds me of Albuquerque, N.M. in the late '60s. It's Orange, CA in 2013.

Drove Around
With all the electrical working, new brakes, and a new exhaust system, Baby got to do some exploring in the big city...on genuine paved roads! It wasn't good Christmas weather but it was great weather so we took turns looked at Christmas lights in the Jeep and the Sidecar.


With a new exhaust system, baby purrs like a kitten.
