Yesterday started with a special assignment. Since the schedule permitted, and the weather was perfect, I hopped in the GreenMachine and headed to our President's house to assist in the final stages of his marathon transmission replacement project and provide escort for multiple shakedown runs.
Cosmo will do a full writeup on his fine craftsmanship so I will save those details for him. I arrive at my morning destination to find Mr. President already in his coveralls and greased from head to toe. He stops to welcome me to the Presidential Shop and begins to debrief me on the lastest stages of progress.
We then begin to review wiring diagrams and talk through the steps we were going to do. Then suddenly The President looks at me and just says,
"I have a cool place for us to go this afternoon"
He quickly cleans up, and we hop in the GreenMachine. He says we are going to take a ride down scenic Rt 151 and grab some lunch.
Our first stop, was the Bluemountain Brewery
where we were given a menu of their crafts.
Well we couldn't decide, so they did. Sampler
Then after lunch we head to "a place to have a good beer". That place, The Devil's Backbone
is amazing. As the SAA of the great ODSS, I proclaim that at some point in time, we will raise glasses in brotherhood there because words can not do this place justice. You just have to see it yourself.
As luck would have it, both of us were donning our greatest of apparel, the great ODSS jacket. Here is a pic of John's great work.
After a great brew, we took the opportunity of the view from the parking lot...
Then our final stop, The Blue Toad
where we each had a wonderful brew called "The Dirty Bastard" while listening to Cosmo's great cross country cycle ride, and it was great!!
Then back to the Presidents house where I drop him off and I head home. By then time I got home and had dinner, Cosmo had the transmission wiring complete.
Great day, I think we may need to have a Brew Cruise at some point......
