So very exciting, having our own house. For that matter, here I am currently putting stuff away. Johnny seems to think that I like putting things away so he tries to oblige me as much as possible by leaving stuff lying around.
Our very classy fridge and contents. If it ain’t liquor, it ain’t in here…
Ooops, should have parked the van BEFORE Johnny got into the fridge.
The next day, somehow the van was parked on the sign from the other end…
Oh well, time to make it official. We live here now.

After doing some chores around Mom’s house, we did some exploring around Trout Creek today.
This is right outside the parents pad. All XC access, so we took the hardtails. Honestly, the trails are so smooth here I can’t see a lot of use for any suspension. I know, we’ll find some use for the shocks soon enough, but after the Shore this is something else altogether.
Johnny needs about a 300mm lens to get the right shot of this trail, but we’re on a thin spine of volcanic rock above a canyon here. The only problem is the angle. Perhaps another time….
A short afternoon of bliss.

I got my weekend mid-week, so it was up to a few misplaced locals to provide the entertainment.
That’s Dave Diplock, another former North Shore bike type (now hailing from Rossland) in the orange.
Not much to say today. Just another great little ride on the Rusty Muffler. Hi Barb….
From this point on, it was all downhill – rolling and fast! Pedal as hard as you can in your hardest gear and best of all….no fingers on the brakes at all!!! And another thing, just the sounds of the wind whistling past your ears…….
Did I mention how dry and dusty its was???
