If you're looking for a cost and time effective way of getting the traveler back into the states..... I'm located about 60 miles away from the watch just outside of a Niagara Falls NY USA.
Unfortunately, my passport is expired so I can't venture into Canada, but if a meet-up could be arranged on the US side of the border I'd be happy to host the watch. We could add the Might Niagara to the destination list.
I'm also traveling to Lake Placid NY to climb Algonquin mountain (Alt. 5,200 ft) and also attend the Adirondack Oktoberfest celebration on Whiteface Mt. the weekend of October 4th.
Just food for thought
I'm sorry Shawn, I didn't see your post...I think that's a great idea, let's see if we can make that happen. Kori (c5k0), is this a possibility for you?
Sorry I haven't been around.
Let's trade numbers and have a quick chat? We'll figure something out.
OK....been a little busy getting settled back in after returning from my 2500 mile trip for a family funeral.....so here's a few photos from this mornings service at church....I'm the bassist with the praise and worship group at the local Methodist church....we always have a great time....a bunch of really good players in this group.
First up....the obligatory watch photo on the music stand photo:
Next a group shot.....an interesting side note....the fellow in the middle (with the glasses) was the original keyboard player with The Ozark Mountain Daredevils back in the 70's...had a couple of big radio hits ("If You Want To Get To Heaven", "Jackie Blue", etc.)...so if you're old enough (like me) you'll remember the group....Buddy and I have been playing together for about the last 10 years in various situations....anything from big band jazz gigs, to the current church gig...he's a great guy....he got off the road after making his money and has been a doctor for the last 30 years....I'm proud to call him my friend.
Then there's Allen...our drummer...would you believe this guy is 68 years old? And he still plays his butt off....he's a real inspiration.
The ages in the group run the full gamut....here's 16 year old Sydney....she has the voice of an angel....she plays great guitar too!
Tommorow I'll post some fun photos from work...and it definitely is a fun place.
I work in the music business....I've been doing it for the last 38 years....these are some photos of where I work....it's a fun place with lots and lots of "goodies" to play with....unlike a lot of people I love my job....it's cool in the summer....warm in the winter....and I get to play with all the "toys".
