A disappointing TB rescue trip out Barber Road

This time the trip was a visit to one of my caches to rescue a Travel Bug that hadn't moved since Jahoadi dropped in July 30. I rode my mountain bike the three and a half miles from my house. Wheeeeuuu! That was tough. I stopped at the top of the hill and visited with a man riding one of those recumbent bikes. While we visited, an ambulance went by, then a fire truck, then another fire truck, then a helicopter flew overhead, and finally, much later, a tow truck went by. And, while we talked, some motorcyclists went by, riding fast and leaning into the blind curve just past our shady spot.

We finally parted company and I got to ride the mountain bike on a trail it was better suited for than the pavement.

Since I have taken so many pictures, I didn't take any today, and since the TB wasn't in the cache, the trip was sort of like a dream. Did it really happen?

It did because I emailed the TB owner and marked it as Missing from my cache. The TB owner is still trying to track it down and get it back on the road to New Jersey where it is supposed to be later this month.

After I got home, I found out all the emergency vehicles were going to a head-on crash between a speeding motocycle that crossed the centerline and hit a Thunderbird head on. Ouch.
