While the world was heading to the theater for opening weekend of The Hunger Games, hubby and I packed up the jeep and headed west to meet up with some friends of ours. Our final destination? DuPont State Forest. What I didn't know at the time was that DuPont was one of the filming locations of The Hunger Games. So, I guess in essence, I got to be a part of opening weekend too! (Though I STILL REALLY WANT TO SEE THE MOVIE...just sayin')
Now, if you look at the sub-line of my blog title, it says "a chronicle of mis-adventure on the trail, lake....and the road." I've done a pretty good job with "the road" part, but I've been remiss at the trail and lake. So, I bring to you my first biking adventure. No technical trails, thank goodness, because it was all I could do to stay on the darn thing as it was.
|This is me.|
I would say, "safety first" with my helmet
and protective eye gear , but I am on an air strip.
|"Hmm, what does this do?"|
|We found plenty of little gems like this!|
|"Look Ma, no hands!"|
|This is me, doing my 'Vanna White' interpretation.|
|My shadow says hello!|
|Me, pretending to be all triumphant-like after this 15 mile excursion|
when all the while my quads are FREAKING BURNING.
Then, the following day, we took a little jaunt to Rainbow Falls in Gorges State Park.
|Hence the name, Rainbow Falls. |
I know, I'm a genius.
And there you have it. Cheers!
May the odds be ever in your favor.
p.s. I'm Team Peeta, by the way : )
