So, where were we? Oh yeah, New Year’s day, that’s right.
So, Macgyver, Frank and I all went for a ride on the ATV’s. The trails didn’t seem too muddy but I suspected it was because we hadn’t ridden down the major trails. There were a lot of people on the trails though and everyone seemed to be having a great time.
We rode over to our friends campsite to see how much water they had on their property. We had heard that is was flooded in the weeks prior and we wanted to see if things had gotten better…
After riding around for an hour or so, we headed back to cabin to do a little yard work. Since it’s not really the type of place you want to run, I was looking forward to a little exercise so I was actually excited to mow the grass.
And it looked pretty good afterwards.
That evening, we gathered in our cabin to watch a few shows on the TV. Since the generator was already running and MacGyver had a full charge on his phone, he turned on his hotspot.
Then he got down to business. And just in case you thought I was kidding about the craigslist addiction, I’ve got proof. No actual utilities or running water in the cabin or the surrounding 10,000 acres, but Craigslist! Yes. Because, Priorities!
On Friday, MacGyver and I did a little work on the cabin and then we got down to some serious riding. We also had a visitor. Our little friend, Aubrey, who is 8 years old and rides an ATV better than most people I know!
Hank was also hell-bent on riding around with me. He would NOT get off the ATV.
If you’re wondering where Boomer was during all this….we couldn’t get his butt out of the pond. Labs definitely love to swim and Boomer is no exception.
Here’s a few pictures of the areas within Suburban Estates, in case you’re into the whole ATV, Mud Trucks, and Motorcycles type of thing. (We obviously are!)
After a few rides on Friday night and a few more on Saturday, we headed home. But before we left, we locked everything up and put the chain across the road. Gotta keep any trespasser’s out.
On Sunday morning I woke up and went for a 10 mile run. I wanted to run further but it was ridiculously hot and humid and I was a little tired. It wasn’t my best run, but at least I got one last one in which put me at 35 miles for the week.
And speaking of running, in 2014 I ended up with 1,398 miles run despite a few injuries and setbacks.
How many miles did you run in 2014?
Did you have any injuries during the year?
