Actually, I'm not quite sure what flavor chapstick that bug was wearing, but yum!
I'm glad to say that this week marked my return to bicycle commuting after the nearly month-long hiatus. The balance troubles have abated nicely since I visited that therapist. Between the exercises and the
I guess I was involuntarily smiling so much on my bike rides this week that the local bug population is notably diminished.
Other than that, it was a pretty uneventful week. Magnum and I had some time to kill yesterday afternoon, so we went to check out an outdoor RV show. We're not really in the market for an RV, but it seemed like something different to go do on a nice day.
There were tons of RVs there, really too many to count. The show made for pretty good people-watching. This seemed to be a different crowd than the one at the Tiny House Jamboree we recently went to. While the Tiny Housers seemed to mainly be curious looky loos like ourselves, the RVers seemed more serious about actually buying something - walking around with yardsticks and discussing all the different features and prices.
But I'd say they were still a pretty diverse group. Hunter/fishermen/outdoor types, older retired types, families with little kids types, childless couple types... As for me, most of the RVs didn't appeal to me at all. I found them big and bulky, with too much "stuff" - multiple TVs, sound systems, gas fireplaces. Might as well just live in a house. One even had a refrigerator larger than ours at home.
After we'd had our fill of houses on wheels, we decided to head a little further into the hills for a short hike since there were some nice trails close by. While in those boonies, we did search for one geocache in the area but came up empty handed when some dark cloud started moving in and we gave up. We'll get it next time!
But it was still a nice little excursion into the woods for a while. A few others were enjoying the trails as it's not too strenuous of a place and good for families with little kids and "old folks" alike. I'd like to think that Magnum and I are somewhere in between those two demographics.
