First Ride

After several months of chomping at the bit to get out and ride, the day finally came!!  Saturday the forecast was for 45 degrees and sun, what better day for my first ride of the year?  Friday after work, I spent a coupe of hours chipping the ice off the driveway in a path wide enough for my bike to get down (uggh…good workout 🙂

Saturday afternoon I donned all my gear (felt like that little kid from “A Christmas Story”) and headed for the shop.  Apparently, I wasn’t the only one with that idea, tons of riders were out and the shop was full.  I hung out for a while and had some much needed Mt. Dew, then headed back out.  Total, I only rode about 60 miles, but a ride is a ride and I was happy!!  Yesterday was my first commute into work on the bike of the year and I managed to ride in again today.  Hopefully I can keep my car in the garage more and more (keep the sun coming)!!

Starting mileage on the Ninja for the years:  20, 637 miles – I hope to have that well over 30,000 miles by year’s end.

I’m currently in the process of transferring the current blog onto WordPress as I’m using a Windows based netbook for my big trip instead of my Macbook so please bear with me.  I should have everything done fairly soon.

I'm currently on a long stretch of work (ends tomorrow thankfully), the dogs haven't gotten a ton of activity over the past week or so.  Today I too them out to a local lake for a dip.  Mira was so tired she could hardly pull herself out of the water and I had to drag Yukon, the lab, out by his collar because he was having a tantrum - didn't want to leave 😜. Mira looks a little chunky when she's dry, it's always funny to see her wet when all of her floof is plastered to her sides! #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #labmix #blacklab #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram  #labsofinstagram #swimming #michigan #summer Early chicken spotted on our hike this evening.  I brought a couple home, I'm giving them a second chance. #chickenofthewoods #mushroomhunting #wildmushroom #sulphurshelf #woodstotable #publicland #huronmanisteenationalforest #michigan #foraging RAWR!!!!! Always on turtle patrol, this little mossy-backed Snapping Turtle was in the middle of the road.  I helped it to the other side even though it was ready to fight 😂 #turtlepatrol #snappingturtle #turtle #michigan #baldwin Always cherish time on the trail with this little old lady, she might not be as fast or hike as far as she used to but she still loves to be out exploring.  We knocked out 3 miles on the North Country Trail this morning north of Timber Creek (near Baldwin, MI), nice to have a little cooler weather! #hikingwithdogs #hiking #northcountrytrail #nct #hike100nct #michigan #baldwin #olddogsrule #traildog #australianshepherd #australianshepherdsofinstagram #rescuedog #rescuedogsofinstagram
