    Well Maybe Windows is Bearable ! Unix Rules !
    Today it was a chilly one , it was about 19 degree's when we got to the trail head over at Plumbers crack.
    It was me ,My Son , Berkshire Rider and SloMoJo.

    off on to Ribbibon candy



    this Bridge has a High Price for failure .






    In the summer this is needed to cross today , not so , but we sill rode it .



    One of the many Wall Crossings





    SloMoJo , JRA



    My son playing on one ofteh patches of Ice out there



    Goin up goat hill between 2 rocks



    now this is a Guardrail Skinny , looks a lot easier then it is. the problem is your wheel is locked in very easy to get you body off center andthe bike can not move over , puls the run just causes your rear wheel to Bind up. it didn't stop us from trying it -- multiple times .





    Traditional Goat hill Lock photo



    Slomojo crossing the lock , taken from above .




    and a Final Bridge on our way out.

    Me? Rarely.

    I guess you missed the sarcasm. When does splat NOT ride? That is the big question. :)

    The Blackstone Canal was conceived by businessmen in both Massachusetts and Rhode Island at the beginning of the 19th century, as a way to connect
