Some weekends all that fits is a short bike ride. It is wood splitting and stacking season. The apples are ripe, but I haven’t gotten to applesauce yet. Our neighbors up the runway are moving out and leaving us their shop equipment. We had to upgrade the wall in our shop, and now we are […]

Isaac spotted the milk snake and told us all to stop. That’s what he wants me to write in the post. We were out for a Sunday afternoon bike ride. We had enough time to make it out of the neighborhood, but not enough to go far. Motivated by last week’s post, I picked a […]

We bicycled to the new soft serve ice cream bar, Sundae Drive, near the Milford town line and the high point on Rt 13. Our weekend was already full preparing for our Utah vacation, so we only had time for a short bike ride. Issac’s goal for the year is to bicycle as far as […]

The next closest I could find was in Townsend MA. If Tyson and I bicycled there by ourselves, we would […]

Friends and Family Ride for Ice Cream

Emilie was agitating to get out. We had hoped to take Isaac to ski something big on Mt. Washington, but the fresh 16 inches of snow created avalanche ratings of “considerable” and “high”. It is also hard to motivate Isaac up hill when there are no friends his age to chase. Everyone we had queried […]

Flying home from Adina’s in New York, I realized I enjoy flying with other people. So, I tried to organize the Brookline crew to fly to Mountain View together. There was a chance of rain that Saturday, so I didn’t send out the coordination email until the morning of the fly in. One other pilot […]

Between commuting and Isaac’s enthusiasm for bicycling, we have been doing more and more bicycling trips. So far it’s mostly on roads because that’s easier.
