Bike and decoration and a Cycleblazer

The decoration isn’t on my bike, though. I have finally returned to the gym after a long long pause. I assume the decorative balloons are meant to attract new customers after the decline in business the gym suffered during the Corona lockdowns. I also considered quitting, but know it’s good for me to maintain strength, … Continue reading "Bike and decoration and a Cycleblazer"

Using Cycle365 In An Unauthorized And Somewhat Sneaky Way

That’s right, folks, this post is deceitful in every way. The underhandedness began when I checked the “Challenge of the Month” box. Yes, it does show me riding my bike decorated with a really cute dog and a predatory bird. But it’s a picture taken long before the “October Decorate Your Bike Challenge” began. In … Continue reading "Using Cycle365 In An Unauthorized And Somewhat Sneaky Way"

We did not have strong enough wifi connection through my phone to post anything here. So this is after the fact from our little weekend outing. We drove north from home for maybe an hour to our destination in Arlington (WA) and would camp at River Meadows Park for two nights. One of Susan’s fly … Continue reading "MUSIC IN THE PARK, A FACE IN THE WOODS, AND THREE BARN QUILT DAY"

Sad: Ending a Fun Bike Tour. Happy: Special Dispensation from The Feeshko to Continue On. And a Surprisingly Happy Ear Worm

I know I’ve been largely absent from my own monthly challenge and, again, that’s because I’ve been preoccupied with my bike tour in Idaho. But I check in on this site once in a while and I appreciate the participation.

Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon. Sadness Is Having To Leave It.

It was real easy to get down into the canyon — like, 40 mile per hour easy — and it was easy to ride in the canyon. Maybe that’s why I’m so happy. But possibly the happiest part was the 10 mile, 2,000 foot climb out of the canyon on a road that I can … Continue reading "Happiness Is Being In The Snake River Canyon.

What can make you happier than a stork in the field?

Two storks in the field, naturally.  We know they’re around the region in the summer but had about concluded they’d all flown south for the winter when we found these two on the way to Dinkelsbuhl.  The highlight of the day. Post Views: 16 ScooterThis is just a placeholder for now. I’ll add a real … Continue reading "What can make you happier than a stork in the field?"

Happiness is Putting An Old Form of Transportation on an Even Older One

For some reason, putting a bike on a ferry makes me really happy. Even putting a car on a ferry is fun, but biking onto a ferry just always seems to make me smile. Recently, my wife and I spent a long weekend in Burlington VT and I rode the Island Line Trail, an awesome … Continue reading "Happiness is Putting An Old Form of Transportation on an Even Older One"

Food Related Pictures From Our Road Trip

The Feeshko and I took our time driving out to Spokane, WA for her niece’s wedding, dividing the 1500-mile drive into four days and three nights. The first night was spent in Bismarck, the capitol city of North Dakota. You might recognize the capitol building pictured in the featured photo. Once I wrote extensively about … Continue reading "Food Related Pictures From Our Road Trip"
