Back to the hunt, down your way all day Friday looking at more overpriced junk, looking for a decent place.
That sucks... I didn't think the market was such that bidding wars were likely to happen.
I might just have to get my ass in gear here.
But that would cut into my riding time.... I'll be touring around somewhere Friday as I'm not working and no kids for once!

I'm thinking.... north... somewhere... lol

The file size is a .jpg and it is only 56 kb--is that still too large??

Has anyone been out lately?

Had 2 places fall through on the bids, one we got outbid, the other the closing date was just not gonna happen for us, that one was just over this past weekend.

But we looked at one after work today, made a bid, back and forth a bit, SOLD!

Door to door move for us, closes the same day as our current home, which is perfect. 3 year old place just north of Yarker, just off county road 6. Bit more than we wanted to spend (okay, a fair bit more), but considering the market in the area, we think we got a good deal. 2.5 acres, big garage, and it's ours.

I'm so happy to be done with house hunting. Put on almost 3500 kms over the last 3 weeks looking for a place, no more of that shit.

Now I can spend my time riding instead.

Well of course, that's how I decided on the DRZ!

Hair care tips? Ok, here goes.

Hmm. My wife pulls out the shears every 2 months in the backyard and mows it down. The only hair care product I own is a comb, and it's at least 10 years old, and missing some teeth.

I shampoo with "Mane and Tail".

That's all I can come up with

So when is the big move?

Since your just down the road... we have to get together for an impromptu ride to nowhere... and a few drinks. (once your done moving that is.)

15 July.

Heading up there now after I grab a bite to eat, gotta meet the realtor for some paperwork. Then we play on the way home.

Was on an old road allowance when I wandering home, hadn't been on it since last year. Came up to one water hole that was a lot bigger than before. Started to roll through it, and the front tire just sunk out of sight.

Glad I ain't any smaller, lifting 600 pounds out of the mud was a real bitch, took me 10 minutes to get it back 6 feet so I could get out of there.

Yeah, I'm sore this morning.

Back up there tomorrow for the house inspection.

That's not until 0900, so I leave out my usual 0550, gives me 3 hours to get there.

Maybe I'll go hit Flinton and the 509 on the way, then Arden on the drop down.

Arden Rd down to Tamworth is a nice twisty run.. How much is torn up this year? They seem to pick a stretch every year to upgrade and it takes most of the summer to get it done. I ended up sitting for 15 min. or so one day while they had a trench dug all the way across to place a culvert.

Here's a route I sent to Ooobah but I think he is thinking a different route.. Since I am from the area I figured I won't let it go to waste and hopefully one of you guys will run it!
