I got the title for the Waverunner in the mail. This is big news. Now I know what registration numbers to put on the thing.
As you can see, not a whole lot is going on for me at the moment. Stickers are exciting. Maybe Ill put one set on, then wait a day or two to put on the other set. To prolong the excitement. Why get all the fun over with in only 10 minutes, when it could be like a multiple day festival! Kind of like Oktoberfest, only in March and with less beer. And no beer wench.
It is that exciting. At least for me. I really have nothing else going on.
By the way, I always admire a woman with talent. I can't carry 11 big ass mugs of beer at once.
But Saturday - ohhhhhh. Saturday. Saturday - it will be different!
You see, there is a full moon bicycle ride at Shark Valley. I have wanted to do this for a while, but never got around to it.
So what is Shark Valley? There are not really any sharks. Nor is there a valley. Well not really anyway. It is a 14 mile paved trail into the Shark River Slough - in Everglades National Park. You see things like this.
And other things. But mostly birds and big ass scary semi-aquatic lizards.
The full moon ride is different. First off, the park is normally closed when the ride begins. It begins an hour or two before sunset. Now who needs 2 hours to ride a bike roughly 7 miles? Who knows. I assume that the national parks ranger who guides the tour will stop and point things out. Like big ass scary semi aquatic lizards and birds. And ecology things about the Shark River Slough.
FYI - the Shark River Slough used to be the main drainage system for the everglades. Eventually it becomes the little shark river, which then becomes the shark river - which then empties into Florida Bay.
The Army Corps Of Engineers changed that system. The Shark River Slough is little more than a trickle - compared to what it used to be.
Around the time the sun sets, the group arrives at the overlook. The overlook is 6 stories tall, which makes it tower over everything else. As the sun sets one can expect to see a lot of birds, and maybe other things like deer and whatnot.
And then - the full moon part. You finish the ride under the light of the moon. I think lame ass safety rules require you to have a headlight on your bike - which I have. But really you do not need it. I only have it so some jackass in a car does not squish me. When I used to ride around at night. Which I do not really do anymore. I should start doing that again.
The light of the moon, when your eyes are properly adjusted to the dark, should be more than enough to light up the path. I think I will be able to see better with the head light off.
The point is, the ride should be fun. And healthy.
I can hide the beer in one of my water bottles. Nobody will ever know.
