The season is finally ending. No, I’m not talking about summer, although that is also the case. I’m referring to the “hot and heavy” business season. Most years I hate to see it go, but this year is somewhat different. I’ll miss my regular clients, as well as meeting new clients which sometimes become new friends as well, but this time around I’m looking forward to leaving behind the rush-rush and enjoying the slower pace of autumn. For some reason mother nature has been tugging at me stronger than usual, so I’m finding it difficult to wait until I have time to get out into some of the more remote areas and simply enjoy my surroundings. I think I’ll do much more riding this fall than usual. While out conducting business I’ve been making notes on places I’d like to revisit. Hopefully most of those notes will be followed through on. What this means to you, my followers, is more ride reports complete with pictures and descriptions of the areas visited. Be patient. My “season” isn’t quite over yet, but it won’t be long. 🙂
