I usually ride at least two miles a day on my bike. Our recent downpours have put a damper on this schedule.
Yesterday was perfectly clear and I eagerly dressed warm, grabbed my ipod and headed out the door.
Usually, I only have time to ride at night. On my favorite days, I'm able to put in a 30 minute ride when it's still daylight, but that doesn't happen often. You should see my ghetto-mobile. Ma and I crudely wrapped a flashlight with masking tape around the handlebars.
I took off and my spirit mind and body were so thankful. It had been almost five days!!!
Since I was adventuring with the sunlight on my side, I was able to discover more things. I found an small shed sized building. Upon investigation, with the addition of a blanket, it would be a perfect little hideaway for reading or writing. Near by, there are various pieces of wood that could be fashioned into a little table and chair. I couldn't see inside very well, what with the only flashlight I brought with me not budging away from my bike.
I found a way to enter some trails I've been anxious to explore. The trail, I discovered, is divided into three paths. I chose one and didn't give it nearly the time it deserved, but I knew I'd be back to investigate all the paths further. I spotted several sets of animal tracks and sadly, a redneck trash and beer bottle dumping ground.
I discovered an abandoned house during my ride as well. Nightfall was nearing, so I just made a mental note of its location. I plan to take a saturday to explore the property and "hit the trails."
I wish I had my damn camera. I know where it is but have been unable to retrieve it. That camera is the one belonging left to recover from my old life of scattering pieces of myself all over the country.
Pretty excited for Saturday!!!
P.S. In other news, I got a call today to schedule a job interview at a local state park!!! It's Thursday at 1:30. Keep your fingers crossed.
