Saturday Ramble

I got out for a nice little ramble around the county this morning. I checked up on one of my geocaches and found it a little damp inside. I'll have to get a better container out there sometime soon. I stopped on the way to make coffee and oatmeal, only to discover that I forgot to bring the HEET to fuel my stove. So today, I boiled water over a fire instead. Worked great, just sooted up the pot a little bit.
Mmmmm... Coffee and oatmeal...
The snap-deck makes a nice table...

Perfect Saturday

Today was the perfect Spring Saturday. A nice ride along the Cedar River to Spring Park. Lots of stops along the way to skip rocks and play. Warm sunshine and 64 degrees... Perfection.

Spring is coming....

I saw two fuzzy caterpillers today... one on the trail, sunning itself on rock and another crossing the road.  That's gotta be a sign of Spring, right??? 
The Big Dummy relaxing by the Cedar River on it's new center stand and serving as a cooking platform for oatmeal... Yummy.

The Dummy is now rocking a complete set of stainless steel Klean Kanteens. 
Stopped in the woods to photgraph a fuzzy caterpiller.

Some new bike parts...

I got a box full of bike parts in the mail today. Finally bought a set of WideLoader racks for the Big Dummy and a nice KickBack center stand to replace my 6 year old wobbly kickstand. I got some new brakes and a chain for the Dummy too. The center stand is going to great for when I have the bike loaded up. 
My Titec H-bars came in teh other day and I like them so far. I'll have to get them out on a long ride to be sure if I'll keep them on the bike.  Later.......
