On a side note, the shoe tree in Middlegate NV was chopped down the other day. There were literally hundreds of pairs of old shoes caught up in the branches. Middlegate is where the old part of US-50 veers off of the newer part. Both parts go from Middlegate to Austin. I've ridden on the old part back in the day. Nowadays, Middlegate has just a local watering hole for the ranchers to go to. And, I guess, the tourists taking the highway.
This blog is for me (Joe) to keep in contact with my friends and family who I don't see too much of because I work nights. If you're wandering by checking out the blog from the Internet, well, you're welcome too, I'm 50 years old and live in California. I'm married with two bonus daughters and three grandchildren. I write about sports, scooters, vacations in the RV, my atheism, funny pictures, and pretty much anything else I can think of. I welcome all opposing views as long as you can keep it civil, my mom does come by on occasion. And, as always, the true focus of my life is my marriage to Sandra and fulfilling The Plan. Though the blog is in the top 5.
