Vanishing lines in Oz

So the feature photo has just one example of vanishing lines from a short overnight ride the guys and I did on Fri/Sat. There’s more vanishing lines to be found in my journal entry which can be found here: https://rambleoutyonder.org/2020/10/04/shifting-oct-ride-1-re-emerging/

    Good news that the project is finished and that you will be getting a few days off for overnight rides. You deserve it! Hope the reduced workload gives you a chance to recover some of your lost energy and strength.

    Those magpies sound really vicious! Otherwise sounds like a great ride.

      Thanks, Suzanne. The magpies aggressive – but luckily, only a few are vicious. And once you know where those are, you can avoid those roads and just put up with the slightly less angry ones on other routes πŸ™‚

    Really good to see that you’re back out on the bike.

      Thanks – and it’s good to see you posting here again, too.

      By the way, the Christmas pudding is still a big deal with little old ladies here in Oz. About this time of year there will be a run on dried fruit and fruit peel at the supermarkets πŸ™‚

    Great ride and photos, glad you could get away for a while.
    The magpies sound vicious!
    Vanishing point photos are great, we could use some ‘vanishing’ of certain things here — meantime, Im brushing up on my Poll Watching skills. πŸ˜‰

    Lets see, what did former Sec of State Tillerson say??

      Yes, I thought the virus was supposed to go ‘poof’ and ‘vanish’ like a miracle for Easter. Did that not happen?

    All that drudgery of word does take a toll! So happy to see that your are done work for a while and able to get out there for some fun on the saddle. And a few days off with no worry about anything but riding your bike. Can’t get much sweeter than that!

      The four-day weekends coming up are public holidays that coincide with my Mondays off (one on a Friday for Oz’s version of the Superbowl; and one on a Tuesday for a big horse race). You’ve gotta love Oz getting public holidays for sports and gambling. I only managed to get this Monday off before I already have to work this coming Monday again. I really am only supposed to work 4 days a week – no rest for the wicked!

    I love your picture! The guys are so cute. I used to carry a rubber ducky, but he jumped ship on my ride from southern to northern Indiana. I’ve bought a few others, but none have the cute face as the one who abandoned me. I’d seen some geese and think he must have joined them..

      Maybe it’s time for a new mascot – I’ve ridden with my guys for 10 years now and couldn’t really imagine riding without them, even though their fabric is in such a state that they could retire right now with a full honourable medical discharge. Hope you can find a replacement for you duckie and that the duckie found a good home. (I rescued a tiny little elephant from a rail trail in 2012 that I almost ran over because she is grey and just looked like a rock on the trail. That little elephant hangs out at my ex-husband’s place most of the time these days).

    I’m so glad you were able to get out on you bicycle again! I really love your pictures and writing. I’m so sorry your health is doing worse! You are really tough!! You are right that very few people understand that addiction to bicycling. I hope you are doing well after your ride.

      Thanks, Rocky. I try to check in on Team Anderson here and there to see where you are at and the adventures you are having – I just don’t get a chance to check in too often with all of my energy spent on less fun things lately! Keep staying safe and having fun!
