We turned four today. And you thought my inability to follow through with anything would surely spell the slow death of this entity/gang/lifestyle/blog. “HA” i say, rejoice in our fourth birthday. Grab your bike, get outside, and enjoy the small things in life. 

Ride your ride

The crazy nice weather allowed us to perform a ride – camp trip in March this year. I never thought I would be enjoying a campfire this early in the year. Finally rode the I&M canal trail from Joliet to Starved Rock. Left on Saturday morning and were able to make it back to Joliet on Sunday to catch the 4:30 train back to the city. The trail itself had some nice parts, not many people that time of year. SnakeSmasher made an appearance and managed to kill two snakes on the path. I met a small turtle but did not take him with us. It was a great weekend, worth the trip. Pictured above is one of the locks along the path.

We also have been planning some summer events. First, to bitch a bit, what is the deal with camping around this city? Why is it so freaking hard to find a decent campsite? Many of the more popular ones now make you book for a minimum of two nights (rip off), there are also some convenience fee’s thrown in for good measure. Next thing you know you are paying 50 bucks to sleep on the ground and piss in a stinky hole in the ground. Come on. Not to mention most of them are already booked solid for the summer, who are these people that book a site for July eight months early?

So, now I am one of those people who book sites early (they forced my hand, i did not want to). August 18th, puppies return to Lake Geneva. Bike. Camp. Unsafe Carnival Rides. Fun. Put in on the calendar.
