Well, our last day of riding in VT was interesting....it was SO not my day.
Started off bad, taking the bike cover off became a major production. Every nook or cranny on the bike caught the cover. Got it off and put away. Started the bike, took off and my left foot got wrapped in the dog run lead. Stopped to shake it off and my right pant leg caught on the footpeg and I almost dropped my bike. Told Stu someone was telling me to stay home today...
Okay, we headed out to visit Granite Harley-Davidson in Lebanon, NY and before we know it, the GPS puts us on a dirt/gravel road for 2.5 miles. AGAIN...sigh....
We finally get to Granite HD and luck is once again with us....the store is open (I had forgotten to check the Sunday hours). So far so good. As I walk around I feel like I tripped on a rug. Another step, still feels strange. Third step...look back and the heel off my boots is falling off! They are like new but I got them on eBay so no recourse (they were HD boots).
Stu walked to a nearby auto parts store and got some Gorilla Glue and RTV adhesive and glued it back on. We sat around for an hour, putting pressure on it. We walked outside to leave...ten steps and the heel left the boot. Sigh....
Back inside and I try to find a pair of boots....three tries before they found some in my size. $140...eeek! Then the good news, they were on sale for 50% off...and since we were in NH, no sales tax!
We headed on down the road to Quechee Gorge area for some lunch and sightseeing. We stopped at the Farmer's Diner and I decided to splurge on a bacon cheeseburger. Placed my order....they were completely out of burgers!!!!
The rest of the trip was uneventful...fortunately...LOL! We stopped for ice cream at a little general store across from a beautiful lake where folks were swimming. As usual, Sadie was the center of attention.
But not the rest of the day....because of the severe thunderstorms moving into the area overnight, we decided to load the bikes tonight. Stu dropped my bike loading (neither the bike nor Stu were hurt) but the rest of the loading went fine.
Later in the evening someone started a campfire that was really smoky so I got up to close the windows. I picked up my Kindle that I had tossed on the bed when I came inside to make dinner. Under the Kindle....the bed was wet. Yup, sometime while we were loading the bikes, she peed the bed...all the way through to the mattress. Grrrr.....can I start today over again?
Here are some pics from the day....the gorge was beautiful, we liked it MUCH better than the Grand Canyon of PA.
So, wonder what tomorrow will bring? LOL!!
Till next time - keep on rollin',
Donna and Stu
