Corvette Museum - Bowling Green, KY
As many of you know in March 2014 there was a sinkhole opened up underneath the museum. A number of rare Corvette's fell in to the hole. It was all caught on the security camers. The last 9 photos were taken in April just shortly before the last Corvette was removed.

Harley Davidson Museum - Milwaukee, WI
The museum is two stories tall with a restoration area and contains dang near 1 of every motorcyle built by Harley Davidson. There motorcyles from about 1904 to present. Some of the 1900's motorcyles are unrestored and in almost mint condition. There are a few of 1 of a kind... IE - the only one to exist, like a WW II sidecar version. Outside there were 2 motorcyles mounted on rollers that you could test ride so to speak as you can't tip them over.
At the time I was there they had a special exhibit of Willie G. Davidson's personal collection. This exhibit was a limited display and would close in September of 2015.
Lastly there was the HD restaurant across the street.The wife and I split chicken salad
sandwich that was HUGE and absolutely delicious. The deep fried cheese curds were to die for.
Lastly the bill didn't break the bank.

Stanzel Model Air Plane Museum - Schulenburg, TX
A few notes about the museum. The day that I was there a 40 year retired employee was there. I took a photo of him standing next to an injection-molding machine that he ran for many years.
They did a lot of DIY Engineering back in the day. Like, using an old platen printing press to cut balsa wood parts or using an old ringer washing machine a press roller for flattening the paper covered balsa wings.

Train Depot & Museum - Temple, TX
Be sure to take the tour of the museum and if your lucky there are a couple old timers that will spin a yarn or two about "back in the day". Plus they will show you how they sent messages via the telegraph and recorded them on a typewriter.
When your done with the tour stop by the gift shop before you go outside to look at the rail cars and locomotive. Lots of neat stuff to spend your money on.
If you are intrested in model trains they also have a big working display in one of other buidlings.

Ghost Squadron CAF - War Birds
I even talked to the Japanese pilot that shot down "Pappy Boynton", very interesting fellow. If I remember correctly he said that he & Boynton became good friends after the war.
The air show was really great as just about all the aircraft in the static display taxied out for pictures, took off, flew in formation and landed. But, the highlight of the show was a reenactment by the Tora Tora Tora Japanese Zero's, complete with simulated bombing runs and pyrotechnics.
About 2 years later the CAF kind of disbanded and moved most of the planes, nose art etc to Burnet, TX. This news got me to thinking about the photo's I had taken and I decided to scan them and make an electronic copy. It took a fair amount of time, as I had to clean them up a bit as they already started to deteriorate.

My First RV - Royal Classic RC310
We kept rig for almost 5 years and put almost 40,000 miles on it. It served us well as it was almost trouble free. Other than normal maintanence, a set of new tires and new shocks the only thing I added was a backup camera.
One interesting thing to note is about 4 years after sold it I was showing a buddy some new Newmar coaches and told him that my old Class C sat right over there, pointing to the used coach section, and guess what was sitting right where I left it. Yep, my old Class C.... It looked like it had been rode hard and put away wet.
The photos were taken about a week before I picked up my 2004 Newmar Mountain Aire.
