Last weekend we rode out to our friend James’ house in Phoenixville, PA. It’s about 34 miles from our apartment. Luckily the Schuylkill trail runs all the way out to his town. Then it’s only 5 miles or so on the shoulder of the road. It was a little hairy on the skinny country-road shoulder and misty weather. But we made it there safely and enjoyed some delicious BBQ courtesy of James.
We built a giant bonfire. Of course marshmallows were roasted.
We met some goats. Hearded them around…
The house James is living in belongs to his boss at a landscaping business. The boss wants to have a large-scale sculpture in the front yard to act as a kind of billboard. So Pete and James are constructing a 5-foot tall stone egg. We watched them dig the foundation pit and carry stones. James gets to drive a real Tonka Truck Bulldozer.
We spent the night and rode back the next day. I was absolutely exhausted on Sunday at work. They were great rides though so I didn’t really mind.
