Thursday was Thanksgiving and this year we spent the holiday with Meghann’s family in Townsend. I took advantage of the afternoon nap schedules to try some fishing. As previous couple days of heavy rain had the water flowing. The cold wasn’t that big of a deal, but with this much water its hard to fish effectively. I lost a lot flies and should have used my 5wt which is 9′ versus my super soft 7′6″ 4wt, which just doesn’t throw heavily weighted flies very well.
On Friday we went on a hike at the Windrock XC trail. I wanted to do a little work on the trail and Meghann just wanted to get the boys out for the day. We had a good time and it absolutely wore the boys out. Even Wyatt took a nap.
Friday night I HAD to get my bike washed so I could replace a leaking gasket. I wanted to ride some moto on Saturday, so it was a busy Friday evening. I got to ride at a practice track on Saturday and the weather was really nice. However the ground had been frozen since all the rain from earlier in the week and as it thawed it made the track a muddy mess. I couldn’t clear a single jump, but I made the most of the ruts and slick conditions.
Over the last 2 weekends we have been working on building a for the lawnmower. I have been wanted to free us space in the garage to park the 80. I’d like to keep it out of the weather as much as possible to help protect the paint and weather striping. With tonnes of help from Meghann, Wyatt and even Rory I think it looks great. We still need a door and some real form of siding, but for now the old tarp will do.
