Moose, Fish, and Roaside Porn

Hopefully the video from the other day kept you all entertained in my absence. 

I promised you all a post after my ride, but time just got away from me.  So here it is, a day late and $235 short (adjusted for inflation).  In a previous post, I mentioned my lack of dirt time on the bike.  Saturday’s 3-hour death march around Kincaid Park helped a little.  If anything, it more than fulfilled my moose viewing quota for the year.  Nothing gets the ol’ ticker pumping better than a near-collision (down hill around a blind corner) with a mother moose laying in the middle of the trail with her calf.  I think that was the longest, loudest stream of profanity unleashed at Kincaid since I went tits-over-ass into the cow parsnip last year.  The weather was perfect, the mosquitoes were minimal, and the trails were immaculate.  There were occasional soft spots, but 99% of the park was bone dry to tacky.  Here’s a peek:

Fun Between My Legs

I would have had more pictures, but I was supposed to be training, and the guilt got the better of me.  I did manage to get a video another picture before it got too overwhelming though.  It was so quiet at the park, that as I passed the lake, I could hear intermittent splashes.  I looked around and didn’t see any animals at the shore, so I stopped to take a closer look.  Here’s what I saw:

 Jumping Fish!

It was pretty cool!  Hundreds of little fish jumping out of the water!  (Couldn’t get the video to upload…yet.  I’ll update the post when I figure it out.)

Just to add to the “not quite right” atmosphere of the whole ride, when I finally popped out of the woods into the parking area, I saw a police car parked across the entrance and a bunch of trash strewn about the road.  Not just any trash, but PORN!  It was pretty good stuff explicit too.  Being the environmentally conscious citizen I am, I asked the officer if I could help clean up. 

“Need a hand?” I asked. 

 “Nah,” he said,  “we’ve got someone from the park coming already.  Apparently this couple had an argument, and she started throwing all his crap out the car window.  I’m just making sure there’s nothing of value here.”

“I’m sure those magazines weren’t cheap.”  I said.  He just chuckled.

So get out and play in the dirt!  You never know what you might (almost) run into!

  1. […] I had more to tell you guys, but after the strange ride Saturday, and the day trip to Homer, today was pretty uneventful.  Not uneventful in a bad way, mind you, […]

    asking some dude looking at porn if he “need(s) a hand?” wouldn’t exactly be my first instinct, but to each his own… trail/roadside porn is the best though. back in nj we once came across a box overflowing with dvd’s! naturally i took two or three home.

  3. […] call the wife to come pick me up.  Besides the ankle roll, nothing crazy happened on the ride.  One moose, no porn, only a few jumping fish, and only a couple of runners.  Anyone notice runners never smile?  Why is that?  I’m […]
