|From Behind My Eyes - The Adventures of Tim Stubbe||
Well after a week hanging out at the N-Laws in Flander New Jersey, a week of rain and only one good day of riding the local roads, I'm ready to get back in the saddle and head north.
Tuesday I'll be riding up some rural roads to West Point New York, where a friend has promised me a very special lunch at the West Point Academy Officers Dinning Hall. For me this will be a very special day for me. Being a avid American history buff. West Point is a major stopping point. Both as a place where Treason reared its ugly head in the form of Benedict Arnold but it is also the resting place of many notable historical figures. George Custer, George Patton to name only a few. I'll spend then night in Cornwall NY then Wednesday Morning, head eastward toward the birthplace of the American Revolution, Boston. I'm really getting antsy to get back on the road, and though the N-Laws have been very nice to me, I need to get back on the road.
I hope all of you have a wonderful Memorial Day and spend some of it appreciating the sacrifice that Americans from the Revolutionary War to Today have offered up for our way of life.
The below picture is one I took at the VIetnam Memorial in Washington DC and seems fitting to post on this Memorial Weekend.
