The first item is conceivably frivolous, but I’m asking anyway: My thirst for adventure is powerful. Now, I have no place to store a boat of any size, but I am really longing for a way to row around on Draper Lake. During the summer months the trails are impossible, and I’ve love to get out on the water and enjoy the change of exercise from pedaling to rowing. I wouldn’t care if it were a canoe, kayak or plain old rowboat. I have no idea how to work that out, but I’m asking.
On a related note, this summer I plan to mount my bike on the car carrier once Veloyce is off work and seek out some new riding adventures outside the county. I have no idea where to start looking yet.
Praise report: This week marks the first time I was able to do a long walk and some hill sprints without any brace. The knee is still a little tight and complains if I sit too long with my feet on the floor, but it’s working far better than I expected it ever would. I’m giving thanks. I still plan to go out to the scene of the crash and take a picture of myself with the bike on the anniversary 28 April.
FYI, the story is piling up in my head and I’ve got an outline for a sequel when this one is done somewhere around chapter 10 or 12. If this makes it to book length, the title will be The Shepherd’s Household.
God bless you all!
