Beautiful weather. But I’m jealous of a person who needs more than 7.7 gallons of gas and is strong enough to ride that far.

When I see Stockbridge, I think Massachusetts and Arlo Guthrie. Stockbridge, MA is not too far from where I lived for many years and very close to where I went to school.

Alice's Restaurant. Those were the days.

My dad introduced me to Arlo on vinyl growing up.

Saw him in concert a couple times, too.

well don't be jealous of me, while i've had a few trips where those 7.7 gallons have gotten me over 300 miles i've never ridden far enough to need the 3 gallons in the fuel cell but it's nice to know i have it. i have syphoned some gas out of it for a few friends that didn't have as much gas as they thought

The first time I saw him I was lucky enough for the venue to be The Ark in Ann Arbor MI. It's a super-tiny location, and I was probably 20 feet away even though I was sitting in the back row. Amazing singer, great storyteller, and an extremely funny guy ("Alice's Restaurant for an encore? I'm getting too old to sing a 20 minute encore!").

It was a gift for my dad, who was absolutely over the moon.

Going to school and then living in Massachusetts, I was lucky enough to get to see him a number of times. And it does seem that he prefers, or least enjoys to perform the small venues.

Poor William, we have stepped all over his Stockbridge thread. Sorry William.
