Another Mental Health Day was in order since I had to pick up SWMBO from the airport after midnight. A perfect reason to not show up in the office the following day, and ride. Sometimes it’s good to be self-employed…… sometimes. ‘Middle Age Adventure Therapy’ I call it.
As usual I had no plan and just started riding, but ended up at the General Store in Mill Village, after copious amounts of twisty pavement and rolling dirt roads. There’s a German butcher who sells his wares there and I can’t resist the smoked sausages…….. and ice cream. What!? It’s the perfect blend of sweet & savory! Who’s with me on this?
While exploring a forest road I came across Kelsow’s next project. Ok, Ok, so it doesn’t have the cache of a Vanagon, but it is free (I’m assuming) and does come with its own parts supply in the back (PM me for location Kelsow).
I made another brief stop at Petite Riviere Winery to soak up the feel of being in Provence, sort of. Love their building and the wines are really starting to come into their own. Nova Scotia wines in general have come a long way with some of the vinters in the valley producing quality stuff.
On my journey I passed the spot where the clutch cable on the old KLR gave out and spurred me on to buy the Sertao, which I am still loving. And the new pegs have made riding offroad a joy and I even get to wear my MX boots without feeling cramped. Worth their weight in gold!
