Does this count as a wind mill? I think they officially call it a wind turbine, but these things are HUGE! (Pawnee National Grassland, near the NE border)
If this counts, the next tag will be... anything painted camouflage.

I would agree your picture would count as a wind mill.

I'm really happy to see this game rolling, but it's only been 4 weeks since my replacement hip surgery, and is going to be at least 2 more months before I can ride (and play here) again, so for now we have to rely on someone else to do the job. I'll keep an eye on you!!!

Ah Ha, a new player on the block. I have decided to play since I have the time and I have the motorcycle. So here is a tank all painted up in camo. It is sitting under a tree waiting to blast passing traffic so it is a bit dark.


If this is okay, then the next tag would be what I call Power Line Horticulture. This is where the power company comes along and trims trees so that the wind doesn't knock down the tree onto the line. They are not so delicate and hack up a tree into something even God would not recognize. My picture here is not a great example, but hopefully you know what I mean.

OK so I got the bike back together and I'm back on the road :D
figured I would swing by and grab a shot of the tree work on the way to work, looks like it's time for them to come out and trim up the tree on the left
Next tag will be your bike and a school, of any kind. being summer break this should not create any problems with children being around.

Schools here haven't broken up yet, but thought I would give it a go. I am writing this from my cell. Apparently middle age men with cameras hanging around schools cause some suspicion. I should be out for spring though. In the mean time, there is this big chap on B wing, they actually call him Mr Big. He is very friendly and has taken a shine to me so it looks like I will have a friend here. He has asked me to meet him in the showers later, I expect he wants my opinion on his tattoos.

He goes by the very colourful name of Fingers O'Flynn, I think he was a locksmith of sorts, or possibly a watch maker.

Since I could not find the last two photo tags in time, I found this one in Snyder, OK. I am on my way from northern Illinois to southern California then up the coast to BC border then to Sturgis, SD.
Next tag is a train caboose

Just kidding. No real story, bought it at a yard sale. It was a Halloween prop. He never used it before he passed away so his wife sold it. I didn't like the color so I repainted it for travel trailer and conversation pc.


Had to remove guts and sanitize interior. I am having fun answering questions.

How cool is that? Not something you see every day.

So what's the next item up for bids?

To whom did the "guts" belong, and what did you do with the rest of the body?

Probably in the caboose. I have no idea what a caboose is.

The trains used to have a car at the end of every train that was the sleeping quarters for the train crew. Trains do not use them anymore. When someone gets the picture, you might remember seeing one.

Ah, yes. We used to have these. Don't think they slept in them though, at least not with permission. Called a Guard's van here.

It was a Wikipedia photo. This has opened up a whole new world of brake vans to me. They haven't actually been used here since the 1990s and even then only for trains carrying explosives. But there are lots on heritage railways. Apparently some even make up whole trains of them for people to ride in.
