New Wheels

Our new Cub Cadet!

Okay, it’s not what you think. After selling my motorcycle we decided to invest in a lawn tractor. Meet the new ride!   This is sure going to make mowing our 3/4 acre a whole lot easier.   Here’s a little clip of my son mowing. No helmet needed! Thank you for stopping by today! I am still looking for female motorcyclists to profile. Please leave a comment and I’ll get in contact with you.  Enjoy the ride!

Wind and Road Snakes!

Yesterday coming home from work I took a more covered route because of the wind. A little too gusty for two-wheels! There’s only one open stretch on the road I took and almost lost it twice. I’m guessing many of you have experienced that type of wind. The sudden burst of wind that hits from the side and you feel your bike being pushed out from under you. Yup. That was the kind of wind we had here. 

A little farther down the road I ended up in a residential area with a lot of cover so I knew the wind wouldn’t be such a hazardous factor.  But, there was another hazard that was new to me. Road snakes. It’s not what you think. Road snakes are that toilet paper tar road crack filler used around these parts! They look innocent enough, but if you hit them at the right angle on two wheels they can be rather slippery!

Well, I had my first encounter with some fresh ones shortly after getting out of the wind! There were many of these road snakes running parallel with me and I could feel the motorcycle wobble a little. Yikes! Kept everything upright. Big win!

What is that stuff? Looks like toilet paper and tar!

These photos are from today and not the ones I encountered yesterday, but you get the idea. Do you have road snakes by you?

Extreme Barbie Jeep Racing?!

If you find Spring can you send me some?

It’s Spring. Well it is suppose to be Spring. This is what it’s looked like this past week.

It all started Thursday while I was at work.

This was my commute home.

When I arrived home my neighbor was outside with his 2 1/2 year old making a snow man.

And when I woke up on Friday there was more snow!

Friday morningThe poor Robins are so confused. I think I want to go to the bait shop and buy some worms for them.

I so miss riding my motorcycle.  Here’s to hoping the weather warms soon!

Take a Dirt Road …

I’m hankering for a ride. The weather will eventually catch-up to my dreams and I’ll be on two wheels again. In the meantime y’all who are riding enjoy!

Take a Dirt Road
See Where It Leads
Search for Adventure
See What’s Over the Hill
Take Your Shoes Off
And Play in a Stream
Run through the Woods
Be Wild and Free
Take a Break from the Chaos
Of Everyday Life
Take Some “Me” Time
To Discover the Sublime
And While Exploring the Back Roads
You Might Even Find
More of Yourself
Than You Ever Dreamed
Was Inside

Snow Rider

Just reminding myself the snow is coming soon!

Living in Minnesota it is only a matter of time before the snow flies. Some creative person created this Snow Rider and is a good reminder the snow will come, but it is followed by Spring!
