2014 Gatorback Hare Scrambles

We went to the Hare Scrambles put on by the Florida Trail Riders up near Gainsville today. Hare Scrambles are different from motocross in that they typically includes sections of woods and are not confined to just a closed track.

They have an age 50 and over class that I thought might be fun to compete in, which would at least give me an excuse to get in shape.

Was hoping Derek would take more of an interest though… hint, hint!

Thumperbay Open!

ThumperbayLisa and I have been hard at work this week shipping dual sport accessories out the door :)

The Thumperbay Website went live on Sunday and orders are coming in, slowly but surely.

Hopefully as we get more products listed the traffic will increase.

Homecoming 2013

Danny and Devin ventured out this evening to homecoming at the Melbourne Auditorium.

It was an extra special night for both of them, as it was Danny’s last homecoming (being a senior), and it was Devin’s time to shine after having been voted the Sophomore Class Homecoming Queen! Congrats to both of you.

Derek turns 12

Happy Birthday Derek!

We celebrated Derek’s birthday a little early this year so Devin could be a part of it before leaving for New York.

Sorry for the bad photo, the elusive ‘Derek’ moves around so much his species is very difficult to photograph.

2012 Tiger 800 XC

P6290226

Lisa and I headed over to Tampa to pick up a used Tiger 800 XC today. It was raining off and on, but cleared up for the test drive. The bike looked good, so we loaded it up in the back of the pickup and headed back. When we got home we had lots of help unloading it. Devin was tasked with taking photos.

South Carolina Vacation

P6120175sm

Just got back from Lake Murray South Carolina. The area has some really interesting history which you can see in the Link above. The lake itself is a reservoir and is approximately 50,000 acres in size with over 500 miles of shoreline.

The house we stayed at was up near the West end of the lake and was really nice, with a very big yard and great access and views to the water. Kids had plenty to do, and was nice and quiet for everyone else.
