I’m Back Baby!

June 18th, 2006

I have returned from a 350KM, 3 day bike ride to Parry Sound and then 3 days R&R at The Sound. My leg muscles returned to functionality sometime Friday, after a somewhat gruelling 150KM day Wednesday. But after passing through Bala and seeing the “Parry Sound 52 sign”, I was making it that night come hell or high water.

Riding that kind of distance, your mind wanders. Without further ado:

What I learnt:

“Just because people say something is crazy, even if it is crazy, that’s no reason not to do it”

One of my favourite lines, courtesy of Bloom County, “It’s never too late to have a happy childhood,” has some truth to it.

It may be true that it’s the journey, not the destination, but By God! There’s nothing wrong with getting there.

Dalton McGuinty is right, the Oak Ridges Moraine should be saved from development. Alas, he is wrong as well, and broke that promise too.

By the way, for a good long time I did a picture of the day series here. I stopped because I kept forgetting to put one up, not because I ran out of pictures. I now have a pile more, and will start again with a picture of the day, for the next week or two they will be from my trip.

and finally:

Addendum to the Bible : On the eighth day He created the insufferably stupid. And they would be called Assholes, and they would drive stone trucks.

    Thanks Joanne – did I miss much?

    You must be in great shape!

    Good shape, not great.
