Just Ride

3 posts in this topic

Monday 6-23-08

7 AM met my youngest son (30 years old) at Mc D’s in Hudson Wisc for a relaxing breakfast and talked-read the paper. Then road Wisconsin side of the Mississippi south to the Winona bridge crossing then into Minnesota and back to Hugo, Mn. We stopped at wayside rest in Prescott on Minnesota side, stopped a wayside rest and took our leather jackets off really enjoyed the picture quest river vistas, stopped in Stockholm for a coffee and fresh bake goods and a shop walk through town and the park, stopped at This Old Bike in Pepin Wi looking at new old motorcycles and bike stuff, had lunch in down town Wabasha Mn, stopped in Lake City Mn at Wild Wings (which to my surprise was closed in January), stopped at Prairie Island casino for gas and lost 120 gambling in the blink of an eye. 250 miles on a beautiful motorcycle ride, lots of sun (my arms are red and turning brown), my sons good company on his new 2007 Yamaha Road Star 1700cc (and he even let me ride it) If I ever get tired of this or don’t enjoy it any more there is something wrong with me.

Those are the days that a man will remember when he is no longer able to ride, and the days the son will remember when dad is gone! N Joy every one of them to the fullest and try to get as many of them in as you can! Take care and N Joy the Hunt././Jimbo

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though. No use debating, though.      You guys would make me walk out first, wouldn't ya?      O this stupid merge junk....$#@! son of a 
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
