I was going to work on the drainage situation at my house, but my friend can’t bring his tractor until next weekend. Yay, procrastinating! That’s where I’m a Viking! So instead I went for a long mountain bike ride Sunday morning while my wife took the kids shopping for some new clothes.
Didn’t take any pictures on trail because... it looks like the woods. We did try out a new loop though, keeping in mind, none of these trails are actual mtb trails. The downhill was unexpectedly AMAZING, sections of logging road intermixed with singletrack, about 1,000 vertical feet in ~1.8 miles. You could go 20-25mph down the fast parts, which is totally unheard of on the trails we usually ride. The only problem was, did I mention it’s not a bike trail? So you’re going 20+ straight down this woods road, when you start to wonder, hmm, it’s getting thick up ahead, does the trail turn? When suddenly BAM it’s a 90 degree right or left turn. Hello, brakes!
We spent the night Saturday at the lake, then couldn’t leave yesterday because it was so beautiful out.
Saw these people tubing behind a beautiful wooden boat:
Then, this morning, we put my just-turned-7-year-old on the SCHOOL BUS for the first time, off to first grade! We took the truck to the bus stop (it’s at the end of our little dead-end road) with the dogs and everything. He was both nervous and excited, but I know he’ll be fine. It’s a big day for him!
