A Common Ground




A ride start that I seem to be making too much this year and am getting tired of it. The Strathcona High school start. Only today I pulled in like a chump just as school was letting out and quickly retreated to the Ronald McDonald house. "Does Ronald McDonald actually live there?" I murmured to myself like an idiot as I was getting the bike out of the Jeep. These are the kind of thoughts that remind myself as to why I am stuck where I am in the trade world.

We did have an absence lately and that was not caused by the weather. We were in fact securing the future of this blog by finally purchasing a new computer. The old Mac has been running extra crappy since my return from the north and figured there really is no other time to do this. So a new MacBook Air was purchased and we are now writing the first official post on it. This will end possible photo issues as well as the site completely crashing on my end which was a reality that was coming one day. Yes, it is a Mac and they do have me by the balls but considering the longevity of the old one with zero issues that was enough to sell me a new one. Although this is a laptop...

The ride? Lame. But hey you know what, better than you if you were working, am I right? The 76 ave bike lane took me to the valley by the horse stables. I didn't hang out too long in the valley and shit canned the idea of visiting Karenville (Laurier) and instead climbed the back trails out to the streets. 

The little bit of trail I did see seemed ok. I did get the feeling that there are areas that are quite rough now.

a frantic mid journey did not find the arm, it was however in the jeep, what a dork

 

Happy Days Off begin

Night recovery... Cue the bitching.
