It's April????

Well, it's been crazy weather here in Colorado. Or has it been "normal" versus the previous years of superfantastic weather?? I dunno, but pleeeeeeeeaze bring me back superfantastic!!!

I did get out for a bit last weekend. No mountain riding, but rather, just riding the roads in town. I've been out house hunting since I'm having to move. Not from this lovely town, mind you--just having to leave my house. The homeowners are not renewing my lease. Something about a biker and her biker trash....

NO NO NO! Not really. My landlord has been overseas and is finally returning and they want their home back. Can't really blame them...I love it here.

So my weekend has been filled with riding the neighborhoods on the bike--out scouting homes. Not too bad, by any means....I've gotten really good at making U-Turns in neighborhood streets again. It's amazing how quickly I've gotten "rusty" at those skills.

Interestingly, I've discovered that while out on the motorcycle, I pull up to a home for sale, hop off the bike and grab a flyer...and while I stand out front reading the info on the home, the owner comes out and chats about the bike, and then I get an invite to tour their home! No pressure and I get to ask questions like "how are your neighbors, how much is your utility bill" kinda things that an agent really can't answer.

I've got an offer out on the table at the moment and I think it's been accepted...I should find out later this afternoon. If so, I'll be packing. OH wait, I'm packing anyway since I know I have to move. At least after today, I'll know where I'm moving too...I hope.

I should have a riding adventure soon enough...at least hope to.

Until then, I hope that you've gotten out for many putts and adventures...I need to live vicariously through you!!

Keen the shiny side up!

I hear ya, Christine. After a few days of fantastic weather last week, we actually got snow last night and sub-freezing temps today. Arrrhhhh! OK - thinking of a happy place ;-)

Good luck with the house-hunting, be sure to pick one with a nice garage for the bike!

Cheers,
Lucky

Good luck on the house thing. Owning your own place is so awesome.

Don't worry about the weather. Despite winter temperatures averaging a few degrees warmer than usual across the nation, it seems that spring has been slow to arrive everywhere too. Hang in there though. We will all be out riding soon!
