Road Trip Day 4–Pioneer Auto & Prairie Town

I like junk. For some reason old rusty junk just fascinates me. So when we saw what was in the 39 buildings that make up the Pioneer Auto and Prairie Town in Murdo, South Dakota I was very happy. There are close to 300 unrestored old cars, motorcycles, and trucks everywhere here and many are ones I have never seen before. It is sort of like a huge barn find. All the vehicles are housed in little more than sheds that add to the charm of this place.





There are also displays of toys and of course rocks plus several of the buildings depict old town stores and businesses. It is like walking back I time. I decided to shoot some of these in black and white because it just felt right.



If you like old unrestored stuff you will definitely enjoy yourself here. I would suggest you stay away from the restaurant though. But, do take time to have some fun!


Ladies and gentlemen, Elvis has left the building.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
