The Loooong Fall and Winter

As some friends and I are starting a new blog (more on that in a moment), I logged in and realized I haven't posted since July! How dare I?! There have been quite a few trips on the bike since July to include Raleigh Bikefest and Myrtle Beach Fall Bike Week in September.

Raleigh Bikefest-Sept. 2011

They start 'em early at Myrtle!
There was also a cold trip to Rider's Roost campground in the NC mountains in October! Much like the trip last year this trip was full of winding roads and cold weather. However this year, we remembered an e-blankie. That's the only way to camp (if you can still call that camping).

One other semi-milestone since the last post was getting my "M" and renting a Harley from Ray Price as part of my riding class last July.

The bike was rented, it was ridden, and then it was dropped. After some nasty bruises and some tweaks from Jim's wrench, it was returned good as new. There may or may not be another blog post in the Spring about the next rental. My bodily bruises have healed, but the ego, well we're still waiting on that bruise to disappear.

Ok, enough of the biking, now, back to the blogging. Yes, we're at it again. In case you didn't know, 2011 was spent reflecting on the full moon of each month in "My Moon, Your Moon". Two very talented friends each shared their perspective, one in written form, one in visual form. They allowed me to tag along for fun and sometimes for my editing skillz. This year, we have a new project, Five Words Musing, the explanation for which can be found here. Stay tuned for more on the 5th and 20th of each month.
