How about somebody sneak up to the Hudson Valley in New York. Bob likes bridges and pictures. I don't think anything could get more scenic than the Poughkeepsie railroad bridge. It got burned out in the 70's, was in disuse. Looks like it is finally open as a park!
 
Okay - so I need to plan a drive to the Hudson Valley. There is a very nice little dinner off 84 in Beacon. Then maybe head to the bridge with some friends - pretend we're a train, chug out over the Hudson and snap some pics.

    I think he is very missed, and I too miss his trip adventures.. I have enjoyed many meals with him and he is a alot of fun to dine with. We alway's have a great time.. He is a great person and I am lucky to have so many fond memories with him. He always treats a lady as such and has the best manners,, Glad he come's down here to visit family and always make's time for a great meal together . Thank's Bob..

              BBQ? Tennessee? Very cool. If you are in the neighborhood, take a tour through Cades Cove. I'm not sure when the Bluegrass Festival is, or if you enjoy Bluegrass - but Cades Cove is a very nice place to visit.

                I emailed him the other day, but he didn't respond.  Maybe he'll come out of hibernation some day.

                  Bob really hasn't posted in 2 years?

                    Has it been that long?  I'll have to ask TTM.

                      I miss Bob's reports too.  One Bob is worth a dozen curmudgeons.  Ask this of the community:  Who has given us what?

                          Perhaps a Contingent event at the end of the summer could lure him out of the cornfields of Southern Indiana?

                            Doubt it, darling. Think he had a temper tantrum and left. He wanted to post bridges and such, which was awesome, but people wanted to see his food experiences-as this is what this site is about.

                                True I've seen a couple of nice posts, but if anyone reads all of your posts they'll see a trend.

                                    I enjoyed Bob's reports, bridges and all. His view of travel was very much like mine: enjoy the journey itself as much as the end goal. His trip reports made me want to take the trip and experience the process, not just gobble up the food. I'm sure he won't be back, though. Life is short, and he seems to have realized that the sniping wasn't worth the effort.

                                      IIRC, he did post pics of his food. He likes bridges because he worked for XXXXXXXXXX, a national rail company, until XXXXXXXXXXX forced him into early retirement.


                                      If you read a trip report about, oh, let's say, a trip...on the road...from the South Side of Chicago to North Carolina, I don't think it's unreasonable to include pics of the scenery. If anyone had a problem with me including 800+ pics of the Hancock Building with my Chicago slideshows, they certainly never said so to my face or otherwise. Good to know!

                                        I "spoke" with Bob via email and IM often while this went on, and what ever the intent of comments may have been, the result was that he did feel bullied and was very upset and hurt by what went on. Personally, not speaking as a moderator, I thought it was shameful how some people treated him. I didn't see what he did as being any different than what I have seen in prior or subsequent reports.

                                            Well, I wish he'd come back.  I for one will be forever grateful to Bob for taking me around Chicago and introducing me to Al's Roast Beef on Taylor Street.  My Lord!  What an gastronomic experience!
                                             
                                            The following year he came down to visit me, and at my request, he brought me a $50 supply of their delicious roast beef.  For something that is 300 miles away, his kindness was much appreciated.
                                             
                                            Just before he left these boards, he was in the middle of posting a trip that took him from Illinois to Kentucky, where I took him around to various Roadfood venues (hitting 16 locations in four days).  And then he was off to Pennsylvania to visit Buffetbuster...when his posting stopped.  I'd like to someday see the rest of that trip.

                                              I mis represented what I was saying........and apologize. I know people bullied him because he didnt show ENOUGH food. I always enjoyed his reports. And I missed a great opportunity to meet him when he was in Milwaukee. I didnt know he was so hurt by the activity toward him on this board. Again, I apologize. I, too would like to see him back.

                                                I "spoke" with Bob via email and IM often while this went on, and what ever the intent of comments may have been, the result was that he did feel bullied and was very upset and hurt by what went on. Personally, not speaking as a moderator, I thought it was shameful how some people treated him. I didn't see what he did as being any different than what I have seen in prior or subsequent reports. 

                                                Tony, how does it get to that point? I wasn't paying much attention to those threads at the time so I have no idea what actually was said, but I do wonder why the kinds of posts being talked about here were allowed to remain. I've never moderated a board so maybe I don't understand, but it seems to me that the goal of moderation is to further participation by those contributing to the mission, and eliminating participation by those who chase the good guys away.
                                                 
                                                In the short run, yes, traffic might be reduced if some very prolific posters were eliminated, but in the long run I think it would create much more fertile ground for the development of truly valuable posters.

                                                    The biggest problem was/is,not only were/are certain posters allowed to run amuck, but when anyone tried/tries to rightfully put them in their place,THEIR posts were/are deleted. Just the way its going to be around here I guess unless there are some changes made. No big deal to me,I just spend my posting time elsewhere,as do many others now it would seem.

                                                      Bob drove from Chicago to Huntington, IN just to meet up with me at Nick's Kitchen for lunch. Is that not a true road fooder?

                                                          I have been a long time lurker on this site and have seen people come and go and come back again.  If I were Bob I'd never post here again.  He took the time to share something he loved with all of us and was ridiculed for it.  There were those who started the fire and those who fanned the flames.  Thank goodness there are people on this site that manage to keep themselves above the fray while still managing to be productive members by turning out stellar trip reports and giving thoughtful and kind answers to questions some might deem repetitive.  Those people are why I visit this site often.  Bob was one of those people.
