Prepare to be hauled-
I’m not saying it is going to be at any particular person’s expense, or on any specific given day. I’m just saying that I am due for that breakout ride of the season. It probably will not happen in the course of a normal ride where, for instance, I bunny hop seven yards of brush and smilac to come around Mystery and race for the trail head at Cadillac. It could be that, but I think it is more likely that we will be miles and miles from home when confronted by some great emergency, like a small child trapped in a well, and everyone will say, “I’m just too tired to go get help. I couldn’t possibly make it. The child will simply have to remain in that well until I have eaten a Gu.”
I, however, can possibly make it and I will make it. I will save the little girl in the well!
The ride that follows will be legendary. I will receive the key to to the city of Miccosukee.
So that is one of my goals for the Summer, to save a well-trapped toddler with a heroic ride for help. What are you going to do this Summer? Lay around watching re-reruns of Ultraman?
As my mother used to say, “Turn that thing off and get outside!”
