    GSteve,
    I've marvled at many of your pictures, and wondered how you have come to travel to so many different parts of the world.
    Would the navy have had anything to do with it? (seeing your latest posts obviously taken from onboard)

    Ken,

    Thanks for your interest in my photos. The photo I believe you are referring to was taken from the viewing platform at the Miraflores locks at the Panama Canal. The submarine is from the Peruvian navy. Yep, Peru has a sub, probably purchased from, or given to them, by the USA.

    No navy for me, however, I did spend two enlistments in the USAF in the sixties and early seventies. After the Air Force I spent over thirty years in law enforcement. As time & money have permitted the wife and travel as much as possible, sometimes by motorcycle, sometimes by other means. Needless to say, we enjoy seeing as much of the the world as we can afford.

    Regards,
    Steve

    Okay, rdalland, what's up with the high centered bike?

    No "good story to go with it". This happened in Yellowstone some time ago. I was making a U turn on a narrow dirt road and backed into a drainage ditch that was hidden by tall(ish) grass. Fortunately, a couple of hikers came by and helped me lift it out.

    No response in over 10 days? Is the thread is dead or are all the photographers, amateur and otherwise, out on long term rides?

    Yep. That was a Sunday morning snapshot I took leaving Gardnerville in Aug of 2000. Dinner the night before might have been at the J-T, not sure.

    Our house was on Minden/G-ville boundary, right behind the phone company... Wasn't a bit unusual on weekend mornings watching balloonists maneuvering to miss the 90 foot tall poplars in our backyard. Those things do NOT turn on a dime!
