My new/used bicycle

I might have posted this Image before, but right now it’s the only one that I have at the time. Over the past few days, I have been looking around the Internet to see what kind of riding trails are out there in my area. Geez! There are lots of them. So, what I do is load up the bike and go take a look at the trails that are out there. There are so many of them.

Yesterday was such a outstanding day, I went down to a Trail not far from here. Named the Gibraltar Bike Trail it was very nice, but a bit too “hilly” for me. Right now I can’t ride very far. My legs get too sore & stiff. Like I said the Trail was nice and very well kept. At the Trail Head there was even a place to rest, hang your bike to work on, a air filling station, and a map to show you were you are. Should have taken some pic’s of this, but I just forgot!

Engine Co. #7 New Rescue Truck

While down checking out the Riding Trail, I noticed there was a small “get together” at the park across the street. Decided to walk over and see what’s there. Was not a big thing. Just people getting together with some food stands, craft displays, some young Ladies performing cheer leading acts, and a display of the new Rescue Truck that was put into service last year. Since, I had been a volunteer with the EMS in our area for 13 yrs. and never paid for what I did, I walked over to see how much change there has been over the years after I stopped. There has been alot! Rescue equipment is more modern looking and the Driver is now paid for his time. I knew pretty much of all the equipment that was on the Truck and probably would still know how to use it. There are some people out there that just don’t realize how expensive this stuff is. The Rescue Truck shown is about $750,000. That does not include all the “tools” that are carried on it. So, when you see a Engine on display remember how much money it costs to run it.

Being retired I do enjoy Photography with my Nikon and Pentax Camera's, snooping around in Historic and Abandoned places, using my Scroll Saw, Reading, Travel, riding a bicycle on the many Trails that are around my area, and what-ever else will interest me at the time. Come with me and see where I go, where I have been, and my Life surviving Retirement.
