I thought I had a tire appointment for my van at one. Good thing I checked the tag as I found it was at 3.
Barry was in the yard ready to go for a ride up into the hills, so now I had time to go too as long as I was back in time to head out for the tire shop.
Off to ride
Barry lost me in one spot. I thought he didn’t turn off on another road, but I went down it a short ways and listened for the sound of his bike. I didn’t hear it, so I took the other road and he wasn’t were he should have been so I went back and went down that road and listened again. I thought I heard him and went down that road, but he wasn’t there, so I knew we were just missing each other looking for each other. I finally found him where I thought he was at first. We took off riding around some more and ended up at this ridge top for a rest.
It was getting time for me to leave for my tire appointment so we left the rest spot and headed for my house.
I always have to drive my van in as not many of these guys in this modern age know how to shift, three on the column with a manual clutch. To be sure they don’t mess things up, I always do it just to be safe.
As it turned out, my tire was worn more than 25 percent so I had to pay 75 bucks for the new tire. If it was under 25 percent, it wouldn’t of cost me anything. That was still better than full price. A damage warranty comes with the tires and it’s prorated to how much of it got used.
It’s interesting just how many people notice the old van. Two different guys came up to me while I was waiting and said, is that your old van? I saw you drive by, neat van. Then we have a conversation for a bit which helps kill the time.
I’d picked up the cam cards earlier with Barry, but when I checked out the cards, the cams were set too high and shooting over most stuff. I rode back up there just before dark and put them down a bit lower, I think. I moved this one down a bit lower and made sure it was pointed down lower.
This was on the lower cam and is all I got on it when I picked the card up earlier in the day.
