Bertha Benz trip is on the website.Gaaahh!! Broads.....
Two years ago I was with my VTX1800 + camera following the Cumbres & Toltec train through northern New Mexico and southern Colorado. I hooked up with a guy who also was following. We talked about the admiration we both have for the way that these locomotives have been preserved and are still working almost 100 years after being built. The train below was built in 1925.Imagine what the engineer who built this would think of NASCAR or Tesla? - mind blown -
Dodge is looking for a "chief donut maker." Get paid $150k to drive and promote a Hellcat for a year.
Potholes are the state flower of Pennsylvania.'Pothole':
According to Etymonline, pothole (n.) 1826, originally a geological feature in glaciers and gravel beds, from Middle English pot "a deep hole for a mine, or from peat-digging" (late 14c.), now generally obsolete, but preserved in Scotland and northern England dialect… Applied to a hole in a road from 1909.
I guess this is more of a 'pot'.
There are other theories behind the name. Some say potholes got their name because of the potters who dug up chunks of clay from the Roman Empire’s smooth roadways more than 3,000 years ago. The clay became pots and those who rode over the holes in the ground knew they were created by potters, which led to their being called “potholes.” Admittedly, this is a somewhat implausible theory, but still fun to think about!
oHIo- yes! Thats where I probably broke one of my MB shocks last fall, on Ironmk's group ride through a couple 'under construction zones with no transitions between the road base and the milled out top layers.And Ohio. Nowhere near as bad in NC now, but I will always remember the roads that made the alignment shops rich.
