First Cruisin’ the Cone Zone of 2012

You could not have asked for better weather for the season opener at the Cone Zone in Charles Town, WV. This cruise-in happens every Friday night, from 6pm until 9pm, now through September 28. On most nights you can find a mix of modern muscle to vintage classics parked on the lot. Parking can be a bit tight at times since lot is also used for the Somerset Shopping Center. So get there early, eat some ice cream, listen to some tunes, and enjoy the night.


The Cone Zone is a good place to catch-up with friends. Our buddy Roger Mattei brought out his new toy, a 2008 Dodge Viper SRT 10, and Dale cruised in with one of his customs.


Dare to be different. This character rode in on a roadster he cobbled together from parts left from an old model T Ford. Being the first car she owned, Peg loves to see old orange Chevettes. This one with big meats out back and an engine to spin them was quite a bit more than her old rust bucket Flintstone mobile. There are many “I remember when” moments to be had at these cruise-ins.



You have your vintage classics and street rods to look at.



Or maybe something just a little younger will grab your attention.


And then there is the stuff just for fun. Cruisin’ the Cone Zone is a great way to spend a Friday night.

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.
