Where have I been? Nowhere. Did the bike trip happen? Nope. Why not? Nowhere to stay.
You see, the place that I live is beautiful and everyone wants to be here in the summer. Not so much in the winter, however, unless they want ski/snowboard heaven. So, for a few locals to think that they could find a fairly reasonable cabin or campsite on the San Juan Islands in July was, well, ludicrous. There was no room at the inn, or the campground, or the cheap motel on the island we wished to explore by bike.
And so we tried to reschedule for the next week, but there was the company coming from out of town, the work thing (blast!) and the scheduling conflicts among us and it just didn't happen.
Maybe in September. Sigh. Something to look forward to. More time to be on my bike, "training."
I live in the PNW. I recently started working from home as an ad copywriter and business writer. I was raised Catholic in a big 'ol Irish-German family. The love for beer took. The religion didn't take at all.
