    I did not see one TW, let alone a motorcycle, in that video.

    Whole idea is to get out and enjoy the outdoors. So what if title is inappropriate? Sorry.
    No TWs or motorcycles in this one either but I tell you I think mountain bikers make some of the best TW trails. I'ld like to poach these:

    I have been out in my shop building a King size bed and backboard for our new mattress. I am up to my arse in alligators and working with very expensive quarter sawn White Oak and can't afford mistakes such as cutting a board three times and finding it is still too short! I jump on my TW when ever I get a brain cramp and need to air myself out from all the dust and numbers running through my head. Just yesterday I dropped what I was doing and since the lawn needed mowing I jumped on the tractor instead but it served the same purpose, get away and clear my head. Sometimes I just go fishing and other times I strap the rod and my dog on the TW and go find a nice stream to fish for a while. There is something very relaxing about taking a quick and even very short ride just to forget about the moment and put my head in a very different place. Since I can't drink beers or other adult beverages while working with very unforgiving sharp tools the TW is the perfect escape medicine and the same could be said for the mountain bike or kayak, just take a break.

    Just got a chance to watch that video Fred and I learned a few things that may help me get the wife outdoors with me more often. Thank you. There were both wheels and horsepower in your video so close enough! Who knows maybe one of those beautiful women were named Betty too......

    Getting outdoors in nature is my spiritual rejuvenator. Sure sometimes it is on the TW or behind a steering wheel burning petrochemicals but it is still good. Often hiking shoes or a paddle provide the motion. It is all a tonic for the soul. Take a romantic stroll with your significant other, a hike together is a pleasing bonding experience. IMG_0103.JPG

    Some of my pals just have to rub it in when I am stuck on projects!

    Here is Bucknutz doing what I would normally be doing with him!

    unnamed (2).jpgI didn't mean to rub it in. Next time, you come along. ( maybe 9/13? ) For me, being surrounded by nature is the closest thing to being near God. ( at least so far, I hope :-) ) As mentioned above, it rejuvenates my soul. This time kayaking, next time riding the tw, taking a plunge off some cliffs into a pristine mountain pool, the sky is the limit. I've got many projects to do, but sometimes I just say f--- it. I know your bed frame had to get finished now Gary. My projects can wait a couple days. Just last evening, Zolar and I kayaked fished for Bass on a beautiful 40 acre pond. I caught one about 4 lbs., and watched a Black Bear come down to get a drink at 75 yards. The fishing could have been better, the experience could not have been. That is, unless my wife was along to enjoy it, too. ( sorry Zolar, feel free to post up some go pro video, I think his TW is in it. :-) We are hear for a good time, not a long time. Rubber side down, Dave

    I had a great time with Bucknutz and even though I did not catch a fish it was a beautiful day. Here is some Vid I put together . [QUOTE=Bucknutz;212777]
