News from the Dirt

28 June 2014 | Mars Hill, NC
No, I have not yet moved my blog yet- I have just been too busy to create a new site. We have gotten pretty much settled in the house and love it. We have plenty of space and are surprised to be beyond calling distance. I have an office with desk and space for a yoga mat. Hunter has a shop and a desk.

We have been biking almost every day and enjoying the hilly terrain. We are training for the Mountains to the Sea ride across North Carolina at the end of September. We do that ride in seven days with an average of 70 miles per day, so we need to toughen our seats and strengthen our bodies. We have some nice rides from the house and always see new wildlife or meet new people. Box turtles are quite active this time of year and when we see them on the road we stop and ferry them across, so far we have saved four box turtles from becoming road kills. We did see a snapping turtle and he and his snapping parts were facing away from the road so I assumed he had made safe passage and did not transport him. We also see deer, quail, turkeys, woodchucks or something of interest. The local folks are very careful and considerate of bikers. One guy passed me only to turn into his driveway. He flagged me down and apologized for being rude. He said that for some reason he thought he was in a hurry, but in fact he was not in a hurry.

Hunter built two garden boxes and today we made the soil for one box. It is late for a garden but a number of vegetables can be planted midseason. We have been helping friends with a project to build a pond on their farm and visiting with Kim and Scott from Bella Blue (also retired cruisers) who live about 20 minutes away. Life is good we are enjoying the dirt and the land.
