It’s been a while since we’ve actually had time to go on any road trips. Life’s been busy here, it sucks but hey what can you do? You take an impromptu early day off of work and load up!! When I pulled into the driveway, Jared had the Jeep doors pulled of. Ooh this was going to be fun! Boy was it a windy ride!
Watching the pavement roll by…as we headed North to one of our favorite places to go. The Kisatchi forest, Fullerton area. It’s so pretty and so much cool to explore.
I always see this wild flea market when we pass, I finally got a shot of it. No telling what is hidden in that place.
This next shot was actually after our ride. Sweaty boy trying to get bikes loaded back up. The trails out there are not bad for biking. There are some hills, sand in a few spots, fun twist and turns, oh and the down hill is my favorite part 😀 I’m a wimp and end up having to walk my bike up the hills half the time.
This is a shot of Fullerton Lake. The spot where the old Saw Mill town used to be. Oh. wait did I not mention that. Yes, this really cool place in the early 1900’s used to be a thriving saw mill town. There are even some great foundation remnants out in the woods there. I’ll get together some of my photos from our past trips out there and do a post soon on the history of the area.
For now, I’m still trying to comb the knots out of my wind whipped hair. And Icy/Hot’ing down my thighs from all the pedaling.

My twin brother Mike and I went motorcycle trail riding along Clear Creek near our house Friday. I was so sore after riding for 4 hours that I could barely walk or stand the next day.
The last time he I went trail riding, a few years ago, I woke up in the emergency room with a broken jaw from a crash I still can’t remember. I wasn’t wearing a helmet that day so it was my fault. Dawn still doesn’t like me going riding to this day. When I told her I was going riding with Mike she said “you better have a helmet on this time”.
Dawn asked me to get her a bicycle so she can go riding through the neighborhood trails with the boys and I. Maybe I’ll get that for her this week and next weekend she can start riding.
I like reading your blog, keep it up!

Oh gosh Dan! Helmets are always a good idea, I wouldn’t dare ride without one. Especially since I’m not that great of a trail rider to begin with. LOL!
A bike would be cool for her, I bet she’d enjoy it! I used to love riding around my old neighborhood. Can’t really do that now, but maybe when we buy a house.
