Great Times!!

Great Times!!

 Well, another dry spell with the blog.  I had planned on loading up a recent canoe trip we made and then some La Crosse, WI stuff we did, but never got to it.  That being said, I will combine some things on this post.  The people that follow Face Book have already had the opportunity to watch the canoe trip video we uploaded to YouTube.  I will load those here for anybody that is interested.

These are the videos I loaded to YouTube and Face Book..

This is part two

 We spend three days on the Namekagon/St.Croix Rivers. 

 We eat breakfast in the early mornings, canoe up through the middle of the day and set up camp early afternoon.  Then it is time to relax. Set back in lawn chairs, read and most importantly...Relax!!

During our vacation, we also spent time on the tandem bicycle.  We have two tandems. One road tandem and one mountain. This mountain one is slower of the two, but is by far my favorite of the tandems. We have it outfitted with some good touring tires, as we do not ride the trails on the tandem. It still moves right along with two people pedaling. :-) 

Fall is in the air, as they say. The leaves have already started changing and this Tamarack will not be far behind.  I think the older a person gets the faster time goes by.  It seems like summer just started and it is already getting ready to walk out the door.

A video we made while riding the tandem.

It has been a lot of fun to be able to ride the tandem again.  I realize they are not for everyone, but we sure enjoy them. 

Thank You for watching and I appreciate any comments you may have!
As always,
Lets get outdoors and have some FUN!!

 Ummmm, yep still here!  Still riding!  I admit I have failed this semester of blogging.   I could sit here and try to make excuses, but there are no excuses.  I also could say I will make it up at summer school, but summer has about run it course and we will soon be moving on to fall.  I want to thank all of you that have taken the time to check in with me and see that things are still good.  They are! 

 Although the last few rides have seen me riding the fatty, I have put miles on the touring bike, the plastic bike, my normal road bike and I have had the mountain bike out also. .

 The title of this blog entry was of what...ummmmm!?!?!?!  No shyness here. Just nature at its finest. They rode along for miles. 

 This was one of the lunch spots's ride had two lunch spots...hehe

 The flowers are full out!  Lots of them.

 Fall is in the air around these parts of the world.

 The flowers were glowing today.

 Ummmmm!  I noticed a lot of flowers being pollinated today.  I took several pictures but this one I thought this one showed it best.

 A nice little pond on a quite road.

 This was a great spot for the second half of the sandwich today. I do eat here quit often though.

Again, I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to those who have recently inquired about me.  

As some of you may know, I have been uploading some YouTube videos lately.  If you like them, subscribe to the channel to keep in touch.
