Hello! My name is Teshia Magallanes. I use to be a pennock. I am from Barnesbro (northern cambria now) I stumbled into your blog and Have to tell you that your pic's almost made me cry. I miss home! I live in utah now and been here for about 14 years. I still go back to pa about every summer! But I wanted to thank you for sharing your pic's!
I am not sure if I even know you in some way. Seems like everyone knows everyone there. But my mother was a watson.

Biker 1100,

I have been lead to believe photographers are labeled "Shooters." Kind of like a gunslinger. You have to be fast, accurate and talented. You have displayed all of that, and Thank You for bringing your ability to the web.

You have covered a lot of my interests even though I came from California to get here early in the 70's and arrived in Coalport for 16 yrs now living in Lakemont.

Semper Fi brother, my son Todd introduced me to "Bloody Knox" when we rode out on our bikes. (http://mdfay1.blogspot.com/2006/09/bloody-but-unbowed.html)

I am a friend of 'MAGOO'S" and ride a Gold CVO Springer [STSSE] found out side Artie's place. I'd be Honored to buy you a beer or two, as I'm there often in the Season and have many good friends up there.
