    Thanks Chef, this spot has worked out great for us. Room for a big garden and the kids to run yet quick and easy commutes to work.

    Just for the heck of it, I was poking around looking for another pic on my gotstang site and found this one, this was our now sold 03 Baja on a seasonal use highway that is now just down the road from where we live. This is the infamous photo that no one know about, lol-it is what inspired the saying that has taken the web by storm after I used it on some t-shirts "if the mud ain't flyin, you ain't tryin" back in 05.

    What we do for fun in WNY

    This is from a couple of years ago. We had the grandkids overnight when we got our first snow of the season. It's a video so you can click on it. There is sound but very soft as the youngest one was still sleeping. I LOVE kids excitement when it snows!:)

    Here, it's called Gibraltar Rock and has been a magnet for rock climbers. The Ice Age Trail in Wisconsin is continuous from Gibraltar Rock to Devil's Lake, and it's an annual hike for my daughter and me. Devil's Lake is legal for rock climbers; Gibraltar's Rock is not.

    This is the view from Devil's Lake--about 15 miles away by footpath and ferry. People are always falling off here too but do so without breaking any laws. :)

    looks like Bonanventure Island Perce. What an adventure that was 43 years ago. I remember the roadside sales where they would step into the road trying to sell huge loafs of oven bread, and off duty fisherman trying to sell model wooden ships they carved by hand. The island had a lot of fossils in the shattered rock. Fun place.

    You're right Save$!!! I live 40 minutes from Perce/Perce Rock. Bonventure Island is now owned by the government. Everyone was expropriated off of it and there houses were converted to museums.

    Thanks for sharing Shari! I bet the grandkids were loving the snow. I just hope you went outside with them and took advantage of it! There's nothing I love more than going outside in a storm/snow to play WITH the kids, AS a kid! lol

    Subaru fan myself . . . wife has an "older" Legacy (2003) that she says she will eventually trade for a newer Legacy or Outback.

    Me . . . I would love for my next car to be an impractical WRX, STI or the BRZ even.

    Well, I would have to say that Hearth.com members know about living life! Hard for us all to imagine, but most folks don't live in places as grand and/or natural....

    We currently have a two-fer, as we keep a summer and weekend cottage in coastal RI as well as our residence in W. Mass.
    Both places have world class scenery and recreation.

    Too many pics, but here is one of each...
