If my wife is reading this right now, she might injure herself rolling her eyes so hard. I have a few hobbies… to say the least (golf, hiking, motorcycles, ice hockey…). As a salty Army Veteran, my rucksack is like my security blanket; every chance to put it on is like reuniting with a long lost friend. Family vacation left me with a few more pounds on the waistline than I can stand, so it was time to venture back outdoors to tighten the belt a notch or two. While hiking a few weeks back I came across some bicycle trails that were well within riding distance of my house. The weather as of late hasn’t been completely conducive to riding (the trails are excessively muddy), so I’ve elected to hike a few days, taking photos of derelicts on the property. After a couple sunny days, I did finally knock the cobwebs off the trusty mountain bike that’s been sitting in the cellar for the last… ten or so years. I’m hardly in fighting shape, but I’m enjoying the ride anyway; Just figured I’d share some of the highlights from the past few weeks.
