Yep, sun, not hot, a great day out for a bit of a drive.
My son and l toured the roads at a pleasant 38 mph.
nice pics Dave. And a great comfortable speed to enjoy your car and the surroundings. Had a great evening ride myself last night, just cruising along probably at 35, I keep forgetting to take my GPS with me!
David, did you deliberately include that cautionary sign reminding drivers to watch out for Wombats! don't think any of our forum friends would have to worry about avoiding Wombats on their roads!.
Don't see a lotta sun - mostly shade.
But here in Florida, shade is a valuable commodity, you can actually sell it!
I am about to start my 14 up and take it on a 15 mile drive although I won;t reach the breakneck speed of 38MPH! I am heading into town for the 4th of July parade. I don't have to watch for wombats but I will see turkey deer and perhaps a wild pig.
Watch out for those bloody deer !!!
A buddy and I went for a ride yesterday in our speedsters - high temp was about 80. Oh, this was not in Kansas.
From Cascade River Road -
Lake above Diablo Dam on North Cascades Highway
It was a Super day to be out and play.
Oh, I have been to Kansas, nice state, and some great people. Many redeeming qualities but too many chiggers and not my kind of scenery.
I took my Express Delivery to Lowe's to get some parts for a plumbing project.
Lowe's parking lot and the streets between here and there don't qualify as "scenery."
I thought I'd try to accomplish a little something today while I'm smoking 3 racks of baby back ribs.
Dave, I would love to get one of those Wombats signs for my driveway! PS: you forgot to warn me about the Moose! Tim, back in the eighties I hauled P&G products for Otis Wright out of Lima, Ohio to New England. Bill, I used my 1917 Dog Catcher Wagon today in New Boston's 4th of July Parade. Walt, many a time I drove over Sammamish Pass, however I I've been told that people in Bellevue don't tan, they rust, is that true? Mike, I have a 1917 Canopy Express Delivery, that I converted into my Dog Catcher Wagon.
Happy motoring, Warren
Some of us do rust a bit, the other problem is the moss that grows on our north side and between our toes. Turning every so often helps for the north side moss but the between the toes stuff can be more of a challenge.
Walt - I guess maybe that's the REAL reason why so many people out here in the PNW wear socks AND sandals!

Dang! That's a new one; I looked to see if my silly post actually appeared on this thread, and it wasn't there! So I re-wrote it and posted again and by that time, the first one really WAS there! Weird!
While waiting for the parade to start one car displayed how to place a jack.
Walt you had me there, l had to go back and have a second look, Hmmmm Kansas don't have mountains!!!
My brother-in-law who lives there tells me they have a fence around the high spot in Kansas so the cows won't walk on it and flatten it out. I've been to Kansas several times and the "scenery" is great if you like flat or gentle rolling terrain. Info about the "high point" is at http://kansastravel.org/mountsunflower.htm
Some people love the plains because they can see forever and they feel hemmed in by the mountains and forests that give me a sense of awe and wonder.
Anyone from Benton Kansas here ??
If so is that Beer and Ribs and cars still there?
Wombats and Tomahawk Hill- what more entertainment could you want on a nice day.
