All of north central Texas celebrates when that first little puff of coolish air arrives near summer’s end.
We all have our methods of celebration, and mine involves the bike, coffee outside, and a little hammock hanging.
The joy of spending time outside artificially cooled air must be like Mrs. Pondero’s dogs rolling in the dirt after a bath.
I’ve become fond of riding out to the State Park and finding out-of-the-way places to listen to the breeze and watch time go by.
A second breakfast, including freshly brewed coffee, pulls my sense of taste into the celebration.
My micro-tour gear is not what one would call ultra-light, but it is mighty comfortable.
When it seemed enough of the day went by, I pedaled a little more on the trails in the park, packed up my gear, and “unhurried” my way home. It is most definitely time to prepare for camping season Texas.
