Anyone else finding it really difficult to resist peeking at the voting thread twenty times a day? I am thinking a bike packing trip until next Thursday. There is a rails to trails trailhead near my house that goes all the way past Texarkana. I figure if I leave now I wont have service until I get to Paris. It's about a three hundred mile round trip and probably needs some maintenance. I am asking here for ideas because they are more class I's than two's. We are expecting a cold front today.

I guess it would help if I didn't have a computer in the shop. I even threw a teens Motorbike back on the stand and started building some NOS Lobdel's for it. I am thinking I need some lost in the woods to save me man

Window repair and repaint. Total remodel. The build off was a small distraction from the work I’ve been doing on this house. Been away from my wife for many months. Finishing the bike build was a small but needed victory. Gotta have some fun. 1945 brick house.

We got our gazebo ( #sheshed) shingled a couple weeks ago. I'm too old and stiff to get up on a steep small roof to do that anymore. I did have enough in me to get it freshly stained though earlier this week.

My step son and his brute of a buddy came up to the campsite in the Northwoods of Wisconsin for the past couple days and helped me 'make some wood'. I run the chainsaw, cut the trees down and into chunks, and they haul out on the ATV and my Chariot of Firewood I put together during our Pedal Car, Wagon, Cart build off a few winter's back, and then stack the wood for next year's season.

On our way home yesterday we stopped in Minnesota's first city, Stillwater, which is located on the St Croix River that separates MN and WI. Fun town, always something to do, even safely in the Covid era. Dinner outside, get an up close look at the recently converted lift bridge that is now foot and bike traffic only, and some outdoor music by a favorite acoustic trio.

And on Tuesday morning, I climb back into the driver's seat of this beast. Well, not exactly this very one, but it's 40 ' long, 8 ' wide and yellow. And carries our future inside.
