I do not own an all-wheel-drive or 4-wheel-drive vehicle. So, as I tried to make my merry way to Loon a couple of days ago, I found that I had a decision to make.
“Do I continue to slip and slide all over the highway for another 4 or 5 hours, with a significant probability that I won’t make it, or do I get off of the highway, turn around and go home?”
My self preservation instinct prevailed. I went home and sulked all day. And racked up many hours playing “Ratchet & Clank”. I also, for the first time ever, thought about how nice it would have been to actually own a 4X4 (perhaps just for winter use (if I could ever find a fuel efficient one)). The madness, however, quickly passed.
But not the snow fever. Since my little brother is going to be with his dad this weekend, I’m going to attend the Outryders Virgin Riders day. And then, on Sunday, Loon!
