A few weekends ago we went back to Durhamtown with Brad’s brother and his family. The first time we went was back in the spring…I’m fairly certain we’ll make this a bi-annual trip. It’s so much fun being in the woods, hanging out with family and having no schedule.
We spent a LOT of time at the pee wee track with David and took a bunch of rides on the other trails. Unfortunately, I got us deep into a trail with me on my dirt bike and Brad following with David in the cart that way WAY too muddy for a dirt bike. It was challenging and the place of my first crash (directly into a pine tree)…but our friend, Joe, said I handled the mud well since it was my very first time really riding my bike. 🙂 I was pretty sore for a week after we got back from that ride alone.
Leslee, Heather and I went for a guided night ride. It was great – we went on trails that are typically closed to the public….there were lots of hill climbs and freaky/scary places to some of these trails. It was my first time really riding the 4-wheeler and with the exception of it stalling the entire way down a VERY steep hill – it was great. It’s definitely on the schedule for our trip to DT in the spring.
David had a little crash too. His training wheel got caught in a whole and it kind of flipped his dirt bike over. He cried for a few minutes but got back on and rode it out of the woods. He’s a little trooper and knows he was safe because he had on all of his safety gear.
Pa wasn’t able to go with us on this trip – he had a wreck on his street bike the week before and he thought he broke a rib….riding in the woods with a broken rib is no fun….so he stayed home. Hopefully in the spring he can join us again.
Below are just a ton of pictures from the trip with some explanation of them.
