It took longer than I would have preferred, but the second S24O is now bagged. My patience was rewarded with perfect conditions (leaving work early on a Friday, clear skies, low wind, cool temperatures, and so on). This time the short campout was solo. I didn’t have the social advantages of the previous outing, but was able to spend more time admiring the small amount of fall color we have in north central Texas.
The camping spot was very near the last one, but better protected from the notably cooler northwest wind. In addition, the panniers that I was not able to use on the last trip arrived just in time for this outing.
When we live our lives trying to get more done, optimizing efficiency, being more productive, and improving profitability, these are the things we miss.
When we carve out a few hours of solitude outdoors, we can soak up some of God’s greatest blessings.
It sounds like you’re getting everything dialed in on your S240’s. Time for a weekend tour now. I sure like the classic look of those panniers.
Funny you should mention the weekend tour. Now that the feasibility barrier has been shattered, the lure of the open road is very strong. I’ll try to be content with a very good thing, but if the opportunity arises…
those panniers are pretty good looking!!
