I am new on the forum, and already asked too many questions.. which were cheerfully answered by helpful members!

I wonder how many members are nearby, Cape Cod and South Coast?

Most of the photo people I see around are birders, but the local colonial-era burial grounds are to die for... er, I mean, very interesting.

I wish I was nearby! I lived in Waltham and then Franklin, MA for a combined 14 years. I miss being able to go down the Cape when I wanted. There are some people here from that neck of the woods, though they may not check in that often.

Thanks. I am at the Cape's "elbow", so, that is a bit more that 40 minutes! We drive by your area every year on the way to the Rhythm and Roots festival in Charlestown - Ninigret Park, on Labor Day weekend.

The Cape, back then, was away enough for folks to do their own thing here, and that allowed folks to ignore whatever the Mass. Bay Colony wanted them to do or obey. Quakers, or land adventurers, etc.

hi jay

When you said "south coast" i was thinking 'fallriv' " or "new bedfid" :smile: yea you are about 1 1/2-2 hours away depending on traffic... although they did just re-pave route 28 so maybe it will be a little less time :smile: That is a fun time in Charlestown, its too bad they don't do the zydeco music anymore at the oak embers campground in escoheag, that was fun !

Welcome Jay...I was on the Cape for about 15 years but just moved up to the Attleboro area as the grand kids are in need of our services much more lately! I do travel down to Orleans once or twice a week if you want to meet up for coffee sometime. There are others down there but are much quieter...

Welcome from the hinterlands of NH. We have good coffee shops here too.

Thank you.
In my motorcycle days, not that long ago, beautiful rides in southern New Hampshire, which, I hear, is being invaded by Massachussettians...

In LittleRhody and CowHampshire they call them something else but this site is rated G so .... :wink:

I know, I carefully tiptoed around it!
R.I. people are nice. We like visiting. Spouse's great uncle, Dr. Charles Carroll, wrote the definite history of R.I., and another family member ran the ProJo editing department around 1920.

Thanks for the greeting. Plymouth is not very far.
Hmm.. vintage British bikes.. like Brough Superiors?
A friend had one, and he explained how just about anybody could build a bike, back then, just picking components, like frame gussets from the huge Enfield catalog, JAP gearboxes, etc.

Yes, Broughs, Vincents but mostly Triumphs. See vintagebikemagazine.com, our rather not fully together web page. On the photo side, I shoot 4x5, 6x6 and 35. And Widelux, all black and white these days. And I no longer ride (last mount was a 66 Bonneville).
