I’m looking forward to spring to finally show up.
The last few months have been hectic between work, and moving. Getting everything in order, being too tired by the end of the day to do anything but sleep, then the same with the weekends.
Spring will breath new life into me though.
I’m looking forward to getting back up into the mountains, doing some hiking and camping out of the way. Not to mention getting back on the road more.
I took the first “decent” jaunt out this weekend. I haven’t put in over 200 miles on the bike at one time in awhile.
It felt really good to get out, stretch the legs, and just ride somewhere.
It was rainy, it was cool, but neither of those bits bothered me.
I took a ride up North to the city of Blaine, which is located at the US/Canadian Border.
I went up to an area called Semiahmoo Bay, and to the park there.
That was really my only intent. Ride up, go to the park, ride back.
I did so, and it was a very very relaxing afternoon.
Overall, I probably put more miles on my bike this weekend, than I have at any other time in the last 6 months, which is pretty sad. I clocked in just over 350 miles.
I’m looking forward to those 500+ mile weekends.
As far as extended days out, I’m looking at making 2 trips this year.
First off, I’d like to head back up to the Cassiar, as I have mentioned previously, to hit the route that I wanted to before I lost use of my rear brake.
Secondly, I’d like to also head down south to Southern Utah, and make a loop back up through Nevada and Central Oregon.
The Cassiar trip is pretty straight forward, I know where I am going, so not much planning there, besides making a jaunt to Hyder.
I still need to plan my route for the Utah trip though. I could just wing it. Point the bike in a direction, and just go. For some reason, that seems perfectly acceptable to me, probably because after all of the planning I did last year, my trip went nothing to plan, and ended up being a snowball of greatness regardless.
I’m finishing up the new layout for Recipes. Once that gets finalized and I like it, I’ll start getting the old ones moved over to the new layout, and post up some more. I’m also going to start working on some new on the road/trail recipes here pretty shortly. I have some more idea’s I’d like to mess with.
Other than that, everything is pretty slow.
Here’s a Picture from Semiahmoo Park For yah all.
