Ho Hum...

Ok, so this is excruciatingly boring to all but a few. Footage by bicycle from last July when I was at Taos Toolbox because otherwise the Dude's black wagon wouldn't be in the driveway along with my brown one. Two miles of very, very slooooooow footage. Questions answered in comments or by email.

Hey Oz! I enjoyed it. Only gave me a bit of motion sickness. ;)

What it needs is a soundtrack, you know, spy-movie music or something. *G*

I think a soundtrack would be better than labored breathing or cars whizzing by, which is on one of this biker's other videos. Hmmm, I'm thinking JAWS as a soundtrack.

"Land shark..."
"Candygram, ma'am."

etc.

Jaws, yes!

The Dude, in his capacity as a former professional musician, suggests "Dueling Banjos" from Deliverance for the sheer redneck aspect.

And then I suddenly had this image that the Beverly Hillbillies should come pouring out of what used to be a garage but is now a woodshop as the bike pulls up, waving at the camera.

Perhaps the Dude and I can collborate on the theme song, eh?

Dueling Dudes! The Dude and this dude. *G*

Wow, it's so green where you live. Cactuses grow here -- not native, but prickly pear and yucca have decided they can live here just fine.

You are going to go into shock in Madison, then. Actually, I have yucca here. But it doesn't do well in wet years, I have to admit. And that greenery? We were in drought conditions last summer, though it got worse in August. The field on the right hand side of our driveway is the hay we grow for the neighbor's cows. It hadn't been cut yet and is looking much too brown. They often get two cuts of hay in Virginia, the weather is so mild. Memorial Day is traditionally the first cut. Our neighbors only take one from our 5 acre field, as our "farming operation." It's too small a field to hay with any efficiency.

Thank you for viewing. I wanted to share what it's like.

I grew up in Wisconsin, so all the greenery seemed normal -- until I lived somewhere else.

Spain is in the midst of multi-year severe droughts, though it has long been a semi-arid country with a Mediterranean climate. It commonly doesn't rain at all from June to September. Wheat in this area is harvested in July. Oranges are in season now.

I recognized the hanging oak! I also got a nostalgiac feeling because the drive from the oak was where I ran at Ozcon! The bike seemed to go pretty fast downhill. Scary.

My core audience, the OzConners! I was hoping it would make you nostalgic and you would recognize some of the footage. Not to mention letting you see what it looks like in full summer.
