Yesterday my fears were realized.
Jeri and Terry invited us out to their place for dinner and a chance to ride their quads. Definitely couldn’t pass that up even if the weather just was not cooperating. Rainy and cold.
We got to their place about 3:00 p.m. They are at the Arizonian Travel Trailer Resort east of Apache Junction about 10 miles. Nice park out in the desert which is perfect for quad riders. You just need to ride out through their back gate and you are on state land.
After some instructions we were ready to ride. Thanks goodness they let me have the automatic. I’ve never been really good with clutches and gears.
Being the only sane one in the group, I took a leisurely ride through the beautiful desert. I discovered that 8 mph was a wonderful speed to travel and enjoy the beauty of the land. Jim started out riding with me but I knew I was holding him back so I told him to go ahead and meet me back at the gate. Didn’t think he was ever going to show up. Jeri went looking for him a couple of times but I think that was just an excuse to ride.
Now for my fear coming true. Jim had way too much fun. It look a lot of fast talking on my part to convince him we weren’t going shopping for a new toy. That’s the thing about addictions – they can be soooo much fun.
For those of you who went to Sassy’s blog, Sassy is in Canada and can’t come south until after the first of January. She doesn’t like the cold any better than I do and this was her attempt to stay warm.
