Well, it certainly has been a while. Been working on finding some sunshine in the cloudy days that have become my norm. Spring is about to commence, 90 degree weather is predicted for Saturday, cold morning commutes are warming, Spring Break week is here, and summer looms.
Summer. The time when a man needs to begin to think about the necessity of some serious, long distance road therapy. Something that has been absent, and missed, for a couple of years now. Where, when, for how long, and routes are beginning to invade that empty space between my ears. I’ve got a vague idea and got the maps out, but as I look across the room they are collecting dust, laying, waiting for that former desire to take hold and kick this fogginess in the ass.
In days past, I would already have a destination, the route, and a complete time line mapped out. Weekly, I would be pouring through the book of maps searching for interesting highways to travel. Reviewing on http://byways.org/ to find tempting roads that would call to me and allow Petunia to carry me to the scenery that I need to fulfill something inside of me. Remembering a site like http://www.roadsideamerica.com/ for a few oddities that may or may not be worth the time and effort to find.
If I’m going to sit on my ass this summer, it needs to be looking over the windscreen on Petunia. This recliner and TV are getting old and making me old also. Summer is coming boys and girls…..where will you be riding?
