Three people showed up for this event: Tall Club Members Milanne & Me (Ace Reporter) and Tall Club Wannabe Dave S. A little chilly at the beginning, which eventually turned into a gregarious day. Just a few Blue Bell flowers were blooming, the frogs were out chirping, we saw one deer. Milanne told me to look into a mirror if I wanted to see a skunk. We ended up at a Gin Mill in Senica; a small town, which was beautiful as well as were the parts of Morris we passed through.
My bicycle horn blowing as progressed exponentially, I now have the amazing ability to “honk” with 11 different sounds, truly a Symphonic Masterpiece of honking noise akin to the sound of a garbage truck tipping over. I remain the “Official Paramount Tall Club Chief Honker,” a prodigious title of acclaim. Competitors could only come up with a pathetic tinker bell. We saw two really weird things on this trip, the first being a bridge composed of laminated wood beams OSB (Orientated Strand Board) (instead of steel, some parts were over 3 feet wide, I took a picture of that. The Second being some type of gigantic tractor thingy probably 35 feet long 15 feet wide with 5 foot tires, definitely homemade with at least a 1,000 HP engine, running around an enormous field blowing dust everywhere, looked like a kid driving this monster for a hoot! The 5 foot (diameter) tires, shook the Earth, it must have been going 40 MPH and weighed around 12 ton’s, it kicked up a lot of dust! Prior to this bicycle trip I had already logged in over 105 miles total for 2021; the longest trip up till now being 17 miles, but this trip put that to shame, still bike riding is so enjoyable.
