The envy is mutual. Those road rides you do get to fit in look to be amazing. FL has scenery nowhere near as nice as that.

My 15 yo son joined the vintage steel world today - he'll get it delivered in a couple of weeks but he had a big smile

I was glad one of my kids was interested in old cars. My high school car was a 1965 Falcon Futura 2 door hard top. Your dad has good taste

That's a beauty! Both of them, actually. My first car (which I shared with my older sister), was a '64 Falcon Futura convertible. I've never seen the truck version.

That's a lot of ramps there, Colonel. That's one thing I miss, being away.

Only available for a limited time so we're taking advantage. We'll pickle the bulbs and smoke, puree and freeze the tops.

Here's an answer (a few years old). On the Ipswich River through the Wenham Swamp.

Seems a little late for that. We were always finished by the first of March. I miss the maple syrup season at least as much as I miss ramps. Not enough to come back though.
