Last year yours truly Mike Russell(G0UKM) together with family members visited some Northern England Historical Beauty Spots..........The ruins of Bolton Abbey are the result of a campaign by HENRY EIGHTH to destroy all Monastic Churches in 1539

The River Wharfe runs through the Abbey Estate and the Stepping Stone crossing created temptation for the Brave Ones to cross (nobody got wet).

Here is something I have not seen before Tandem Mountain Bikes, during the end of my morning walk these bikers from the Local town of Rochdale suddenly came into view,   with interest I approached them, to glean that they are a local Family  club that try to encourage all ages to the sport, it certainly was a first to see tandems being used on Rough Terrain the same area as that YOU TUBE Feature I sent you and Joe, anyway a few pics of the Riders....Mike

SUPER JOE

This is what we'll be doing later this evening! You can see the sun setting off the mountains in the background just over the lake. Great mental therapy!

Harold, K5MES submitted this photo of Linda and her boyfriend. Who was her childhood boyfriend?

Submitted by Chuck Jones - It appears that Chuck's son is lifting up the tree....But actually it had blown over and was ripped out of the ground. Nice trick.

Submitted by Chuck Jones - Photo of a Washington sunset.
From Joe & Joyce. Here are several pictures of our 1982 Jeep CJ7. It is 30 years old this year, and has over 278,000 miles. The engine has never been touched except for gaskets and seals! Most of the miles are 4 wheeling. When we tow it, I unlock all four hubs so the odometer doesn't turn. Joyce and I just finished the annual wax job. You hear me talk about Rover so much, that I thought you would like to see several pictures of him.

Radio Battery

OK folks I am no longer allowed to build battery's for my Ham Radio's!!! I tried to make a battery pack for my hand held out of some old cell phone batteries. Here is what happened. At 3am last night I was taking a bath and heard something in the bed room pop really loud, Sheila (my wife) was asleep and I yelled at her to see what it was. So I jumped out of the tub and looked in there and there are flames on the curtains! So I ran and beat them out. I grabbed my flaming radio by the antenna and ran to the bath room sink! Then It really EXPLODED! Hot Plastic goes everywhere and flies by me hits the shower curtain sets it on fire! All this while I am in the buff from jumping out of the tub!! It gets black smoke all in the house and plastic all over the bath room! We liked to have never got the mess cleaned up!! Please Don't try this at Home!!

Hi again gang,

Here are some more pictures of our Jeeping adventures up in South Central Utah. See the attached .jpg picture files.

Also to be able to see our Jeeping in real time, go to the link below and then choose the Hybrid mode and zoom in where the waypoints are dense and see the fun. The Hybrid mode will allow you to see the trees and rock formations and the Jeep trail at:

We send out our location waypoint every ten minutes and you can see where we are and how well we are progressing on the Jeep trail.

Enjoy,
Joe

I am forwarding a picture of an old friend of mine who has recently joined us on our local Repeater GB3PZ. He is on the Bike belonging to ANDY M1VIP our recovery Driver. I think Arthur resembles some of those Hells Angels Characters quite often seen in American Movies...he is quite a Guy and does a lot for Charities by shaving his beard off for the appropriate Cause from time to time. He wont mind having his picture on site....regards Mike G0UKM

Yes the Fall is happening here in the UK after a very wet year, and listening to our Farmers comments on TV, much of their produce has been adversely affected which will put prices up for resale. The Ivey normally Green through the Spring and Summer has now developed attractive Reddening Colour on the Wall of my House in North Manchester, quite Beautiful....regards Mike G0UKM

The day started with a temperature of -2c on a Misty Friday, and my intention was to enjoy a good walk around my favourite area of the Pennines and the WATERGROVE Reserviour, on arriving by car and making higher ground I was lucky enough to have the Sun just breaking through the mist to give a quiet and haunting appearance to the Watergrove Valley. I have used my HTC Desire Phone, for 2 pics one across the still Waters and the other showing the Pump Tower for removing the water out and into the Treatment House. Hope you and yours are well best regards Mike G0UKM
