Colorado Springs Touring Club--El Paso County Search and Rescue

I awoke to a cold and dreary day!  Brrrr.....

The high was supposed to get up to the mid 50's, but I do not think it made it to the day's high.  I was not planning on doing the ride since my son was in tow--we were just going to go down to the end stop and meet everyone.

Instead, we went down and registered and then headed out to run errands.  In the car.

Yeah, I got flak about it, but hey, my days of riding in the rain are about over.  I know I can do it, but if I don't have to.....

Unfortunately, with the weather being so cold (and this is the second time in 20+ years that the weather was uncooperative), attendance was down.  It's unfortunate, because the El Paso County Search and Rescue group is not funded by tax payer dollars.  Probably doesn't mean too much except if you get lost in the mountains, EPCS&R are the folks that get out and bring you in.  Which gets to be mighty important if it's you or a loved one that has gotten lost or fallen off a cliff.

Nonetheless, it was a fun day and the CSTC did raise some funds for the EPCS&R.  We won door prizes too!!  Not to mention having a good time laughing and carrying on with my friends. 

Next weekend is a race weekend.  Boyfriend Joe is racing at Pikes Peak International Raceway.  The weather is iffy for rain, but hey that's what he has raingear for!!!

The Mountain Shadow Riders are also having their Family Dinner Night on Thursday and and open house.  The MSR usually has two open houses--one in early spring and the other one in late spring.  If you guys are in the Colorado Springs, come out and check out the ladies of the Mountain Shadow Riders.  We'll be at Rocky Mountain Sports Plaza starting around 10 AM. 

That's all the motorcycle news for the day.  Didn't ride....well, not on two wheels anyway!

Keep the Shiny Side Up!

Sounds like a busy week. I like riding in the rain most times and cold doesn't bother me very often, but like you I have nothing to prove. It's about enjoying life and it certainly seems you and your son did that. Good on you.

Thanks for the share.
