Camping week

Well, I went from moving week to camping week! Sunday found us packing up from Mahoney State Park and heading home. It was a great day to drive, not too hot and some mixed clouds. The bike bus made it home with only a little bit of rain! Unloading the camper and truck took most […]

Moving week

Well, it was moving week, with little bike riding to be had. We thought about doing the Bolder Boulder on Monday, but the alarm was turned off at 505. More box packing, cleaning and unpacking at the new place. Tuesday found the movers at the old place at 0900 and unloading at the new place […]

Rain, animals and friends

Well, Saturday was a rain day. Thank goodness as we so need the moisture. Sunday, I spent the day around the house as my housemate (and good friend) has a very severe case of vertigo. I was able to do some work on the camper (replace the CO/LP detector) so we can use the unit […]

Week of the wild snake adventures. . .

Week of April 22

Well, it was an interesting week to say the least. I was in Portland for a Nursing Conference from the 18th to the 22nd. Needless to say, not much riding happened. I did get the opportunity to rent a road bike and ride about 14 miles while poking around in some neighborhoods. Portland – I […]

The journey to B Strong Ride begins.
