Tarmac ribbons criss-crossing the landscape, dusty back roads twisting between the cool shadows of ancient pines, and less traveled pathways connecting present to past, all I wander, seeking, seeing, with my keyboard and camera capturing scenes and stories to share with you.

Now in its seventh year, this venue has become an important part of my life, a place where I can express my thoughts and feelings about the things I see and do, hoping the process brings me a bit closer to friends and family who enjoy sharing my sometimes chaotic and often nonlinear observations and ideas. A journal, I suppose, but one with which I find pleasure in thinking others are alongside me on my journey.

NOT EXPLORING THE BREAKNECK ROAD

... after wandering up to conway for another of big dave's "world's best" roast-beef-on-a-bagel treats, and making a stop to peruse the offerings at whitehorse gear, i headed east on route 302, then turned south on the haley town road to explore the maine/new hampshire border ... the haley town road lead me to the old county road, which was supposed to bring me to the breakneck road ...

... except, of course, i'd forgotten that quite often google refers to not-quite-up-to-date county maps as resources for their own map program ... not wanting to learn the reason the "breakneck road" is so named, i backtracked to the sam brown hill road and eventually popped out of the woods near crystal lake ...

... what a nice wanderabout ...
