Who will you ENDURE for?



I can't believe it's that time again!

Sunday, August 3rd, is the 6th Annual Endure Bike ride to benefit the American Cancer Society. This is one of my favorite rides of the year for a number of reasons. It's well organized, it's in my backyard in the Back Mountain, AND part of the ride includes Wyoming Avenue from Kingston to 8th Street!



14 million cancer survivors are celebrating birthdays this year because of your help. Who will YOU endure for?

Choose your distance: 10, 36 or 62 miles.

Want to register? Go to ACSEndure.org

Want to volunteer? Call 1.800.227.2345

Want to donate? CLICK HERE to go to my ENDURE page.

See you August 3rd at Wilkes University in Wilkes-Barre.

Great job Scranton!!!



Wow! It was a sea of orange at Nay Aug Park in Scranton Sunday morning for the 1st Annual Frankie's Voice 5K Walk/Run.


Frankie of course is Frankie Bonacci, who was brutally murdered 1 year ago. What a show of support and solidarity.


Lissa & I were so proud to be a part of this event. Way to go Scranton!!! And GREAT JOB by Frankie's family & friends and all the volunteers that made this special day possible.


We're still waiting for the final total as far as participants, but I can remember getting passed by a runner with the number 838!

Again, AWESOME JOB!!! I love to see the community come together and turn a negative into a positive event like today.

You Can't Take a Bad Photo in Maine



Sue and I just got back from an amazing week in her home state, Maine. What a great road trip!
And yes, YOU CAN'T TAKE A BAD PHOTO IN MAINE!!!



Look closely. Those are seals or sea dogs as they call them in Maine. Our captain pointed them out as we took a day trip to Monhegan Island.



This incredible view is on Monhegan Island, an island accessible only by boat. And as you can imagine, this point has been a favorite of painters for years.



The majestic Island Inn on Monhegan. This classic Maine hotel has been on this spot since 1907.



The view from the porch at the Island Inn.



It wouldn't be Maine without lobster. This is one of many little fishing villages you can find along the coast.



By far, the best lobster roll we ever had, came out of this little food truck in Cape Elizabeth.



One of 7 lighthouses spotted on our river boat cruise along the Kennebec.



A little roadside Americana in Midcoast Maine.



And our kids, Frankie & Sammi had just as much fun as we did!



If you are ever planning a trip to Maine, feel free to give me a shout at rocky@985krz.com
