Dual Fuel Bicycle

I spotted this bicycle during my recent travels. As you can see, it has two power system, the pedals and a small engine:

Note that tiny engine mounted on the frame. Here’s a closer look:

There’s a separate chain and rear gear there. Take a look at the other side.

Not sure how powerful that engine is. However, it has to be helpful on the hills. Quite an interesting contraption. Would like to see it run.

Fall Foliage Flying (2014)

Had the good fortune to catch the changing leaves from the air. Was around the Mount Pocono, PA, USA, area and snapped this photo of the Pocono Raceway:

Note those beautiful colors all around the track. Moving west, I snapped this shot of Beltsville Dam:

No doubt in the next week or so those leaves will be at peak colors. If you have the chance, take a fall foliage flight. It’s worth every penny to see things from way up there. Always do your checklist.

Koi on the Go, food truck

Koi On The Go is more compact than many food trucks I’ve seen lately. In fact, it’s a small trailer made of what looks like aluminum diamond plate. Here it is, parked at the Penns Woods Winery:

Not much room to work inside there, but the food was delicious. Let’s take a look at the menu.

We tried the Asian Sandwich and the Crab Cake Sandwich. Wow! Both of them delicious. Take a look:

Talk about tasty. That Asian Sandwich had the rich flavor of the pulled pork amped up with the bbq sauce. Yummy. I should have had another one! Anyway, it was all good. And the price was very fair given the high quality. Enjoy every meal!

 

Old North Church

The Old North Church is famous for “one if by land, two if by sea.” Here’s a photo of the Paul Revere statue with the steeple of the church in the background:

Inside, you’ll find a rather austere building as the next photo shows:

It’s amazing to think that this building figured prominently in the start of the American Revolution. Here’s another view of the interior:

If you happen to be in Boston, you definitely want to stop in here for a look around. You’ll be surrounded by history and see one of the places where it all began.
