Let's play a little catch up shall we? I think I left off turning 60 and don't remember anything else. Just kidding. We finally did something we've wanted to do for a few years and that was do dinner and a movie in Yellow Springs at the Sunrise Cafe' and Little Art Theater. For 49.95 plus tip we got a good dinner and saw the movie Moonrise Kingdom, about 2 runaway kids and their adventures. After a stop overnight in Jonesboro Mo. We drove to our destination on the Katy trail, Katfish Katy's Kampground on the Katy trail. Full HU in full sun on the Mo. River with temps hovering around 106. What's the definition of insanity? The answer is take a record breaking heat wave, on the hottest day of the year so far, and the hottest time of the day, in the hottest part of the country and go for a bicycle ride on a dusty trail. And on this bike ride, stop on the way back lock up the bikes and hike up a bluff .3 miles to get a glass of wine. That my friends isn't insanity, the fact that it was fun, is. So I guess we're insane, ahhhhhh! 7/20/12 WOW, a respite from the heat with a breezy high of 97. The news of a 24 year old prick shooting up and killing and injuring people in a crowded movie theater opened the otherwise beautiful day. We rode to Columbia Mo. For coffee and a look around town. The trail was very busy and very dusty with walkers footfalls kicking up clouds of dust. The bikes and we were a mess after that ride. For lunch we rode to and hiked up to Les Bourgeois vineyards for lunch. Sounds like we're living high on the hog but we haven't moved the van for 2 days so we're spending the gas savings. As for the asshole in Auroura Co., I wish someone with a concealed carry would have taken the dirt bag out before he did the damage he did. 7/23/12 We'll be here in Olathe Ks. For a week visiting Cindy's folks and trying to get an early morning ride or two before it gets too hot on the Millcreek Streamway, and Indian Creek trails.
