We had planned a little road trip after the new year to visit family, but that darned flu bug took down some of our hosts. Germs are one gift we do not want to share!

So we did something we've never done before. We had our own little staycation.

There have been a couple of times in the past when we had to change plans at the last minute and leave a day late, both because of car breakdowns. I always thought that meant we weren't supposed to be on the road that particular day. Sort of like the 9/11 thing. Remember the people who went to get doughnuts that day and weren't in the World Trade Center towers?

We knew there would be other opportunities to visit family, so we stayed home, venturing out only for short little winter rides up Waterton Canyon in chilly temperatures but dry as a bone.

Our staycation was the first time Lizard had been able to ride back-to-back days since... Well, I think it's probably been close to a year or more. It was the first time I was able to ride back-to-back days since I was commuting half the way to work, back in September.

All in all, it was sort of like our own little private Ride the Rockies. Way fewer miles, but way less training required, and definitely a lot cheaper!


  1. Sometimes a staycation is just what one needs and is better than going away. And yeah, waaaay better than those flu germs.

  2. What fun! Staycations can be so relaxing. I love the frozen waterfall.

seldom heard, well must you keep your secrets
locked inside, hidden deep from view?
