I flew up hills and down hills. I walked some of the time, but rode most of the time.
I saw deer, bobcats (including a mama with 2 babes...see photo), and birds of all sorts.
I rocked out on my i-pod to The Flaming Lips, Blackalicious, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Brother Ali.
I jumped a creek on my bike! Woo-hoo! I got wet and muddy!
I found a geocache (Pick Your Fortune).
I hid 2 caches. ("Gold-on-a-Rope" and "Lost My Wallet!")
I rode more than 23 miles today...and I am TIRED!
My bike, a 1994 Trek Mountain Track, still runs like that day I bought it! I maintain it myself and even built my own GPS holder for the handle bars, using plastic and duct tape. Even my son was impressed!
I ran out of water near Jackson Creek Road, but thought I'd be fine for the rest of the ride home.
Now, I'm home with a pounding headache, from lack of water, no doubt. That last 7 miles was a doozy!
I came home to find all of the doors open and the dogs resting in the middle of the street. When I left, 4 hours ago, I told the kids to be sure and put the dogs in the backyard and lock the house if they went anywahere. My kids are flipping me out.
I passed a dude walking his dog way up on the peak of Vineyard Mountain today. As I rode by, I swear I heard him say to the Black Lab, "Look at that (old) woman go!" I bet he didn't say "old" but I heard it anyway. Now, I'm sipping possibly the BEST brew I've ever tasted, getting ready to go out and see a movie with my friend. It's from Spanich Peaks Brewing in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. It's called "Honey Raspberry Ale" and it ROCKS! I bought it at Safeway, while shopping with Handsome Husband. He picked out Moose Droul, as we visited that brewery in Montana a few years ago. I pretty much love my husband more than anyone could imagine right now...and he's out of town. :(
