we are low-income we cannot afford to take ordinary vacations, so instead
we do much better than that and still have a wonderful time! We have no
trips planned by bike yet this year, but I can tell stories about some
of our trips from last year.
to Grandma's House
rode to Monroe, WA to visit my parents. Once we arrived we pitched out
tent in their front yard. They live on a small farm and the kids really
got a chance to see what country life is all about. This was one of the
more difficult rides as the increase in elevation, the length of the trip,
and the weight of the trailer were all difficult for us. It was about 22
miles one way and we would stay a few days so we didn't have to ride the
return trip right away.
at the local (?) lake
packed up our swim suits and headed for the lake about 15 miles away. It
was a very hard ride as the lake is in the higher hills and the entire
trip there was uphill with very few breaks. Once we got there the kids
had a wonderful time and were so tired out that we requested assistance
in getting us back home again safely. It would have been a fun trip home
with all those long downhills!
