Ride Home....

Teri and I ended up riding home then going to pick Izzy up via gas guzzling vehicle....Teri wussed out on me. We were attempting a longer route to daycare on the way home. Purdy much ride back into the city and jump on thee Trestle to Trestle trail back up and into Johnston. We came off of NW 42nd on to Morning Star Drive and then jumped onto the Niel Smith via the little dirt road/path by the creek. Two trees were down but there was a path beaten in already around the debree.

Teri skirting the second tree....

No going past East Euclid with out getting muddy. We were starting the Trestle to Trestle trail in Targhetto parking lot, once too the lumber yard though it was obvious it might get rough. The city buildt a dirt wall all the way down the trail til MLK turns back west....this is where Teri said fuck it:) I'm sure there is still water under Beaver Ave too. So we didn't make it.

On the way home I did manage to get some casters off this cart for my SpinCycle project....I still need a fork then just weld'ur up:) Said cart has been here for awhile so I simply assumed the soon to be closed Hy-Vee emplyoee's have left it abandoned:)

CITA meeting went well last night. We met at Irina's on 50th and EP True....literally just off the black label. Thee Russian Lager beer was good although nobody including the server could pronounce its name:)

Heading for Tattoo Dans today....Teri is getting her eye bike.....and she's going with the not so hidden spot....that'a girl:)


Peace & Good Day
