A Short Trip to Orange County Choppers (OCC)

If you are in the neighborhood, like we were, why not check out Orange County Choppers? The OCC Showroom and Retail store is a short drive off of I-84 or I-87 in Newburgh, NY. Take the 17K exit off of either interstate to their address at 14 Crossroads Court Newburgh, NY 12550.

We arrived at the 9am opening to only a couple other visitors. I do have to say the retail staff was very friendly and helpful. The store has just about any OCC branded item that is available for sale. The prices are a bit high so unless you are a huge fan of the show, you can probably find the gear elsewhere for cheaper. We managed to escape with Peg buying just one souvenir t-shirt. It doesn’t cost anything to just look around!

Scattered about the showroom are a good number of themed bikes. I was a little surprised at how nice these bikes actually are up close. For the most part, they are kept clean and dusted. I found the Build-Off tracked vehicle very interesting to look at as well. There is a nice display with the Fire bike where you can get your photo taken if you forget your camera. (But don’t ever forget your camera!)

In the back of the retail area is a room with dark glass that you can peer into the workshop. It is kind of hard to see much since the main build tables are some distance away. We were there too early to see most of the crew. Mike Ammirati was there and Rick Petko road in on his bike as we were leaving.

We spent less than 30 minutes here so unless there is some sort of event happening I wouldn’t make it a destination stop. There was a sign hanging saying that OCC plans on opening a “café” later this year so that may be a bonus.

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.
