Today was an amazing day on the road! A bit over 250 miles of NY, VT, NH, and ME roads to end up at an awesome campground!
On top of that, while riding through Vermont I had a first of seeing what a maple syrup harvesting system looks like while riding a state road that was gravel for about 12 miles!
I’ll be posting the video that shows it in the next day or two!
My only complaint about today was when some sort of bug made it past my windshield and tagged me in the temple at 50mph... whatever it was had a stinger or liked to bite...
Luckily I was able to pull over and get it out of my helmet before it got me a second time!
Today while riding I was thinking about how we can stop suicide.
The last image I posted is one way that I think will help.
Children want time with us. Nothing more.
As a parent, I learned this quickly. Especially since I came into the kiddos life shortly after she turned 7.
Yes, she would have temporary excitement over “things”, but she is overjoyed when quality time is spent with her.
I think, on a nation wide level, that we need to get back to having diner at the table as a family.
We should have neighboring families over frequently to build stronger neighborhoods.
We should come together with block parties, making sure that EVERYONE, even that “jerk who mows his lawn every Saturday morning at 7:00am”, should be invited and encouraged to participate.
More games of bocci ball and croquet instead of video games and fight nights.
More togetherness and love.
I challenge you all to make this summer about vacationing in your own neighborhood and to pull the plug on the TVs...
In the end, it will make a difference!
Yesterday Trinity got a new @ridedunlop rear tire.
16,055 miles on the last one and I changed it a bit earlier than needed, but for good reason as I had some rain today!
Today Trinity and I crossed the 2/3rds mark for the mileage of this trip. On Tuesday I’ll get her oil changed and hopefully a bath, as she needs it!
