CEL-A-BRATE GOOD TIMES, COME ON!!!!
With apologies to Kool and the Gang, I could not contain my glee at having completed round one of the Cycle365 Scavenger Hunt in its entirety. It took an hour-and-a-half of cycling and scanning the neighborhoods of MY Town this morning, but I was finally able to check off the 18th ,19th, and 20th items on my checklist.
Oh, you want proof before you can celebrate my success? Well, here it comes.
The minute I saw Rich’s list, I knew the reel lawn mower was going to be the most difficult thing to find. My brother, the Park Tool guy, has one. He’s the only person I know who owns and actually uses one of those things to mow his lawn. But I didn’t feel like riding up to Minneapolis and back on a 93-degree day just to photograph his rare mowing machine.
I have to admit, today I just got lucky. After all these days of searching I found a reel lawn mower, quite literally, in my own back yard.
I’ll take a couple days to revel in my success, and then I’ll be back to start Round Two of the challenge.
