Outside our Comfort Zone

Seeing the mountain bikers ride through the resort yesterday gave us the idea to try the same trail. Turns out, trail 6d at this point is called Water Tower. Sounds harmless enough, but we would see….

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. Yup. I am getting too old and brittle for real adventure these days. That being said, we did put some miles on our bikes on this trip. Thanks for reading Maggie. Have a great week. Allan


    1. Our E-bikes may be rugged, but our bodies are not. The hope as one ages is that you realize your limitations before the earth comes up and smacks you. Glad you are on a beach. We are on a white beach here too, just not sand. ❄️☃️Thanks for reading Scott. Allan

  1. There is no denying that mountain biking is a fun activity. It aligns your mind and body with nature. On top of that, climbing and descending trails give a different level of thrill, well, at least for those who experienced it. But at the same time, you have to protect yourself and others on the trail.

    1. Knowing your limits and riding within them is the key, as well as having consideration for nature, the trail and trail users. Riding with wild abandon can have undesired results. Timidity is not a bid trait. Thanks for reading Aiva. Allan
