Duck, Duck, Goose!


It was pretty nice outside today (in the 50s) so I took out the Trek. Our destination was the Duck Pond in Boiling Springs, about 14 miles away.

Every time I go out, it seems like I have to ride further to get to the scenery.

Look at this: Some asshat plopped his particleboard McMansion in the middle of a corn field. He who walks behind the rows is not amused.

Right before you get to Boiling Springs, you cross the Appalachian Trail. Bikes are not allowed, but I did venture in on foot to yellow the snow.

When I finally made it to the duck pond, there were lots of people outside.
