Tales of the Midnight Riders


Tales of the Midnight Riders

  

The night calls for various reasons, not always good ones. The rider who slithers onto a dark highway at night dances with the Devil by the pale moon light, and needs special equipment and facilities to survive. This department is dedicated to the night bound long-road rider. May he always watch the sun come up safely.

The Plot Thickens

The Midnight Rider
Turning the boat into the whirlpools current the big twin diesels roar to life. The SeaDucers 30 knots coupled with the 60 mph current have the boat travelling at almost 100 mph on radar Doppler.

Episode 2 - The Last Night Of The Earth Poems

It’s a strange ride home, the smell of oil, mud and rotted fish mix like a toxic cocktail. I have never seen the ocean so calm, like a lake. The reflection of the lights from the bridge and cranes look like mirrors in the moonless night. As my engine sputters silent the sounds of the wooden docks and slips creak and groan painfully.
