I will have to say the bar, tavern or other names for fine establishments that host the local braintrust while libations are served, are my favorite. Don’t go to often but do enjoy the solving of world or local issues while presenting our synapses the opportunity to fire at moving targets. I use the three state rule. Once on the Bike and three states away i begin to sample everybar i find. I have met some of the most interesting people and got perspectives that i was sure came from aliens through the persons abduction episode. Once we walked in to this very ratty local bar and everyone there thought we were long lost cousins and began buying us beer. One gentlemen took a special interest and the questions of where are you from and what do you do finally came around. He asked which way we came in, apparently there is only one road in and one road out. We said he stated, well once you turned on the road to town on your right is where i live. We drove for nearly 50 miles to this town after turning, we inquired further, where on the road did he live. He said all of it. He was a diver beat farmer and he owned all the land leading to town from where we turned. Now in most settings this guy would have come across as needing assistance. Oh the tales we collect from the local tavern are of great wisdom and some should be fond memories not shared.

An here i was feeling sorry for you. I am afraid my tour of duty was more WWI style living. Sleep calories and work. I enjoyed every moment of it, wife thinks i’m Nuts. Bout as close to frontier living as i wanted to endure.
