The bike trip this morning was pretty mellow really, nothing out of the oridnary just alot of rabbits and chipmunks. My mind began to wonder all sorts of things. Like with all these chipmunks and rabbits running back and forth playing chicken in the middle of the trailway, what if I accidently ran one over? I would be devastated, and then I began to worry about deer jumping out in front of me. Lets face it, if that happened I would be done for because I have no protection. I mean look at the damage they do to cars then that thought led to black bears. They have been seen all over, what would I do if I crossed one, would it chase me and try and eat me? It made me think of our big bike trip next month and wondering just how many things we are going to encounter and will we be prepared?
I only road out to the end of the trail today, thought about heading to Haus's but with the weather being so chilly and the kids home with Jim, I figured it was best to turn around. Turning around was a disaster, the wind resistance made it so hard to ride, my legs felt like they were doing twice the amount of work that they normally would and I began to think of that humongous hill we got to climb for 125 miles.
