Any Excuse For a Ride

Clear skies generally mean cooler temperatures. I did tell myself not to ride when it's below 0°F but it was a pretty nice afternoon. Now that I'm retired, there really isn't anywhere that I "have" to be so finding somewhere to ride now seems to be a challenge. After cleaning out the refrigerator, there was now something that I "had" to do. Throw out the garbage and not just to the trash can in the garage. Ah ha, a riding opportunity.

We had gotten a bit of snow over the last couple of days and riding proved to be a bit more challenging than usual. The snow was deep enough on even the main paved road that 2WD was needed. 2WD has only occasionally been needed getting up the driveway and maybe getting up our subdivision road. This week was the first time it was needed on the main road. The snow berm running down the middle was over a foot and it neede to be approached at right angles and some momentum to blast through it and not get hung up. Any excuse for a ride.

Wow, Richard, you are dedicated to getting out for a ride! :-)

I am glad it went well!

I don’t know about “dedicated”. Maybe ready for Spring. Today, we got another couple of inches of snow so I took another load of trash to the transfer station.

Leave it to you to not only go for a ride in those temperatures, but to enjoy it and add a lot of snow into the mix too.

The rest of us just aren't worthy!!

Someone has to do it... But I haven't been getting out very often this winter. Too many excuses.
