    During our sometimes-annual Shrimp Boil -- my god, 2015 given the past two late cancellations. L to R: a true (and former VMB) Vegas degen and an awesome dude, yt, my neighbor/local cycling bud and one of my "oldest surviving friends," as we like to quip and with whom I've played a LOT of golf over the decades.

    If you had a glass of scotch in your hand instead of wine, I'd have mistaken you for Ron White.

    Mammoth Mountain. Terri'd never mountain biked ... ever. She went over twice. Hard. This first shot is how I found her after my last run. She'd earned the beers! And it improved her disposition. Trooper, she is!!!

    "Newtown and Midtown"

    (In keeping with the theme.) :) :)

    Since moving away from the city 30-some years ago, you can say that every trip I've made back there has been a "vacation" of sorts. :)

    This is a view down Newtown Creek from the Pulaski Bridge, right on the boro line between Brooklyn and Queens. Several of the "famous" buildings are in view and recognizable.

    In particular, one of my brothers used to live in the very leftmost highrise visible in this shot before he moved out west as well, which is in the Waterside Plaza complex on the esplanade east of East River Drive.

    For those who care, this is another Svema (Russian/Ukranian) film shot, but the unusual coloration is not as evident as in others I've taken with that film. Canon GIII rangefinder.

    Closer view here: http://www.demare.me/gallery/var/albums/newtown11017.jpg

    Ocean City, NJ in February, that’s a little snow on the beach. If you squint, you can see condos and casinos in Atlantic City.

    View of the marina casinos, from left to right: Water Club and Borgata, Golden Nugget in the middle, Harrah’s on the right. I was standing along the dock area near Back Bay Ale House and the Aquarium.

    Fishing trawler in Atlantic City, I think this one dredged for clams or scallops. Harrah’s in the background.

    The Keys are special. One of those must-see/must-experience spots every American needs to experience and see. And a certifiable best-anywhere drive, right up there with the 1/101, State Route 12 in Utah, Vancouver-to-Jasper-to-Calgary.

    My wife and I honeymoon'd in Banff National Park. I agree that it's an amazing drive in that area. Trip of a lifetime.

    You missed another drive, though: The Kancamangus Highway in New Hampshire in late August/early September when the leaves are changing color. Absolutely amazing.
