Fun 4 Wheelin'


After having dinner with my family today, I was walking outside their house trying to burn off a couple of those calories I inhaled at lunch. My nephew came out and asked if I wanted to go ride the four wheelers, so I said, oh, I've never ridden one. Well, that was enough to get him to lead me in the garage, and since it did look like fun, I said ok, let's give it a try.

They live on a farm with about 40 or so acres of woods behind them, and he has some trails, so after showing me how to actually operate the thing, I started to follow him. It took about 3 seconds before I realized I was hooked. "I gotta get me one of these"! was my thought from there on out.

We went through trails, through woods where I certainly didn't see any trails, across some creeks, through mud and water and over fallen trees...I can't remember when I have had so much fun.

When we got back to the house, he was telling me about going riding with a group in the mountains not too far from here, they even go into West Virginia where he said I would have to practice and be skilled to try those mountains. Then asking if I wanted to go with them next time, just load the second ATV on my truck and join in. Did he really have to ask? I think I'm going to have to find one of these because there's about 200 acres behind my house just begging me to explore now (since I've found a way to do it without walking).

Anyway, it goes to show you're never too old to try something new and exciting. I'm glad I had the opportunity, and I can't wait to do it again.
