I miss Bob's roadtrip reports Wed, 02/2/11 10:00 AM (permalink)
Not meaning to stir up trouble. Not trying to start anything. But I really miss Bob's roadtrip reports and pictures.
Bob - I miss your Mayberry Days and pics from runs through Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Tennesee and Virginia. Hoping to jump in my little Rambler American and do a back-road 2-lane trip myself.
 
Folks - let's not start a jumping up-and-down or hollering thread. Some of us that can't get out for long tours due to commitments enjoyed Bob's pics. I'm one of those people.

    I don't ever remember seeing one of his posts but if you miss it, you're allowed and don't let anyone tell you different.

      He did change his ID, but I don't think he has been posting much of late. Perhaps once the weather warms he will hit the roads and share his tales of the highway once again.

              I must have missed something.  Why would fondly remembering Carolina Bob's posts "stir up trouble,"  "start something" or cause "jumping up-and-down or hollering?"

                That's what I'm wondering too. What'd we miss?
                 
                I've always liked Carolina Bob's reports.

                  Fondly remembering Carolina Bob's posts shouldn't stir up trouble or cause issues. I probably should not have stated it that way. I simply wanted to state that I miss his reports - but did not want this thread to degenerate. I should have more faith in people.

                        Certain people (who never post trip reports btw) complained that his reports had too many pictures of the road and not enough pictures of the food.  It understandably hurt his feelings.   I would be in the camp that would love to see more of his reports.  Those that don't like them should just ignore rather than complain.

                              FYI, surrycounty is the poster formally known as Carolina Bob
                               
                               
                              For Carolina Bob:

                              When I take you out, tonight, with me,
                              Honey, here's the way it's goin' to be:
                              You will set behind a team of snow white horses,
                              In the slickest gig you ever see!

                              Chicks and ducks and geese better scurry
                              When I take you out in the surrey,
                              When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top!
                              Watch that fringe and see how it flutters
                              When I drive them high steppin' strutters.
                              Nosey pokes'll peek thru' their shutters and their eyes will pop!
                              The wheels are yeller, the upholstery's brown,
                              The dashboard's genuine leather,
                              With isinglass curtains y' can roll right down,
                              In case there's a change in the weather.
                              Two bright sidelight's winkin' and blinkin',
                              Ain't no finer rig I'm a-thinkin'
                              You c'n keep your rig if you're thinkin' 'at I'd keer to swap
                              Fer that shiny, little surrey with the fringe on the top!

                              Aunt Eller:

                              Would y' say the fringe was made a' silk?

                              Curly:

                              Wouldn't have n' other kind but silk.

                              Laurey:

                              Has it really got a team of snow white horses?

                              Curly:

                              One's like snow,
                              the others more like milk.

                              All the world'll fly in a flurry
                              When I take you out in the surrey,
                              When I take you out in the surrey with the fringe on top!
                              When we hit that road, hell fer leather,
                              Cats and dogs'll dance in the heather,
                              Birds and frogs'll sing all together and the toads will hop!
                              The wind'll whistle as we rattle along,
                              The cows'll moo in the clover,
                              The river will ripple out a whispered song,
                              And whisper it over and over:
                              Don't you wisht y'd go on forever?
                              Don't you wisht y'd go on forever?
                              Don't you wisht y'd go on forever and ud never stop
                              In that shiny, little surrey with the fringe on the top!

                              I can see the stars gettin' blurry,
                              When we ride back home in the surrey,
                              Ridin' slowly home in the surrey with the fringe on top!
                              I can feel the day gettin' older,
                              Feel a sleepy head near my shoulder,
                              Noddin', droopin' close to my shoulder, till it falls kerplop!
                              The sun is swimmin' on the rim of a hill;
                              The moon is takin' a header,
                              And jist as I'm thinkin' all the earth is still,
                              A lark'll wake up in the medder.
                              Hush, you bird, my baby's a-sleepin'!
                              Maybe got a dream worth a-keepin'
                              Whoa! you team, and jist keep a-creepin' at a slow clip clop.
                              Don't you hurry with the surrey with the fringe on the top!

                                I agree...the "road" in roadfood is very important,too. Love the reports that show the locale...not just the "food porn" part!!!

                                And TTM, WJ, The Mayor and Buffetbuster are among those really good at it.

                                    I agree...the "road" in roadfood is very important,too. Love the reports that show the locale...not just the "food porn" part!!!

                                    And TTM, WJ, The Mayor and Buffetbuster are among those really good at it.

                                      I'll have to see if I can coax Bob into doing some more road trip reports.

                                        If he hasnt had any roadtrips, at least talk him into contributing his 2 cents once in awhile. He has been to many places we have talked/are talking about! I am sure he could steer me to some good eating on my spring Wis, Ill, Missouri, Kentucky,Indiana roadtrip!

                                            Certain people (who never post trip reports btw) complained that his reports had too many pictures of the road and not enough pictures of the food.  It understandably hurt his feelings.   I would be in the camp that would love to see more of his reports.  Those that don't like them should just ignore rather than complain.

                                             
                                            Hey, I enjoy road pictures!  Rock on, Bob!

                                              I always enjoy Carolina Bob's roadtrip reports and pictures. I hope he starts posting them again.

                                                It has been incredibly cold and snowy up north. Here is Bob in a action shot

                                                  Somebody start a Godzilla thread.  That might get him to come back.

                                                    The difference between Godzilla and Bob is that Godzilla loves all types of fish.

                                                      LOL @ doggydaddy.
                                                       
                                                      People are bewildered with my photos sometimes too (not ones I post here). I hear things like, "You took a picture of a *effing* rock?" Why yes, yes I did. I like effing rocks. So much so that I had a pet rock named Henry from ages 11-16. He got lost in one of our moves & I never got over it.
                                                       
                                                      I know Bob was planning a move to Nowheresville, population 6. I also know he might not be feeling up to moving around in this weather as it's not good for joint pain. I wish he'd post too, but he will be back in his own time.

                                                        How about a bridge?  
                                                         
                                                        I know he is a sucker for a good bridge, and they don't get any better than this.

                                                          I miss Bob's reports, too, but I have a feeling he's moved onto other things. Maybe if someone posts a picture of Kuni's ice cream....
