I was laying around watching some TV when I got a message from Tyler inviting me out to do a quick loop around Lake Kegonsa during the golden hour. I very briefly considered passing on that invite but thought better of it... I mean, I was just watching TV after all. So I quickly threw my gear together and set out to meet up with Tyler. I wasn't sure how my legs were going to hold up after all the fat biking I have done (including the shenanigans from last night) but they didn't do too bad. Albeit they were somewhat achy and sore. By the time we were headed back into town they were feeling pretty dead and so I requested that we avoid having to climb the rollers on Lake Farm Park Rd. It's not like they are all that steep but I just never enjoy that section of road. Tyler obliged my request so we rolled back into town pretty easy on the Cap City Trail and then had a post ride beer at my place.
Having friends to initiate these random adventure is great. I am also thankful that I have the ability, opportunity and freedom to do such things on a whim like this. All said we banged out 39 miles in just over 2 hours of riding on a beautiful evening. We even got a few partial rainbows and a lovely sunset.
The camera seems to have mostly recovered from the water leakage as suffered during The Golden Triangle ride yesterday. It obviously turns on and functions at this point which is a big improvement already over the zero response I was previously getting. It seems there is still a bit of fogginess to the images though and it's like having a soft effect filter on all the time. Perhaps another day or two of drying out will fix that, time will tell. In any case, I had already ordered the newer model a few days ago since the price has dropped significantly over the last year.
