Expedition Part 2 – 6th Bridge to Moberly Homestead

All photos taken on September 4, 2022.

Our path to the Overlander Trail started by crossing 6th bridge, basically a Bailey Bridge originally developed for military use in WWII. The Maligne River shone emerald green in the morning sun.

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. Not bad indeed, geezers. I think Bike-Fallen-Tree Limbo could be an interesting new Olympic sport. I’m picturing a lengthy obstacle course of fallen trees, under each of which various perilous objects have been placed.

    1. I like your line of thought, Leighton. There were a few things that could have been Olympic sports on this trail 1) the root and rock slalom 2) the fallen tree bike limbo 3) the rocky hill bike carry. Thanks for reading. Allan

  2. Wow, what an utterly scenic part of the world to cycle through, Allan. Maligne River is such a pretty river, especially where huge boulders unexpectedly sprout from the rapids. Thanks for sharing and have a lovely day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. Thanks Lyssy. I have read that the secret to aging is realizing there are some things you can no longer do, despite what your mind thinks. Thanks for reading. Allan
