Range Road Conundrum

All photos taken on our 28 km bike ride on July 30, 2022.

Looking to enjoy another country bike ride, before impending rain showers, we set off East of Beaumont on Township Road 505 as usual. At Range Road 234, we turned North instead of South, until we reached Township Road 510. At 510, we jogged slightly West and again turned up Range Road…233…wait what?…how could the road numbering go down as we proceeded West? Looks like TR 510 must be some sort of correction line.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. There used to be a lot more variety here with Charolais (white/cream) and Black Angus, as well as Herefords. We have even spotted a few longhorns. Thanks for reading Marion. Allan


    1. You just gotta wonder what they think when they see us go by on 2 wheels. They do tend to stare. Sometimes they walk towards us like they think we brought them something. Still having iced coffee weather here, but it will likely cool off by the end of the week. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Hope all is well. Allan


  1. Lovely gentle landscapes Allan. They remind me, just a touch, of my exploring around Iowa some years ago. What perfectly handsome jet black horses. Cows, admittedly, just give me the creeps. Starey… vacant… they feel impenetrable and even after all my years having them around in The Scottish Borders I have never grown fond of them. Love those big old barns.

    1. We do enjoy our rural rides. It’s hard to believe it to Covid to show us what we had been missing since moving here 29 years ago. The horses are a joy to watch and yup the cows just seem to stand, chew and poop, all the while giving us this vacant stare as if to say “Mooooooooove along, Nothing to see here. I have never visited Iowa so will have to take your word for it. The big old barns, both old and new take me back to my childhood living on the farm. Barn lofts and hay bales were always a good place to play and catch mice. Thanks for reading Leighton. Allan
