Wow! Is that an urban camouflaged bike? You know, alongside the apparently functional WWI tank? I imagine there's a story there. I feel like I may have seen a tank like this in Anime, with eyes and an attitude. Alas, my Google-fu is as weak as my memory.Life During Wartime
Apparently, Flatahoma is taking this heavy weather more seriously than I had imagined. The next storm won’t find us defenseless.

I'm glad you got pics, regardless. What a cool random find!It's a mystery story. I was finishing up my day's ride, looking at some empty lot where apparently heavy equipment for a road destruction project was parked .... I assume the crew drove through a time-warp and parked there while looking for coffee and groceries.
I might have to check the local news and see if there is a less plausible explanation.
That's what I get for not bringing a DSLR on every ride .... but most days I don't even have my phone camera, so I am not complaining.
I'm pretty cool, and Robbyn the Ice Cream Truck is even cooler, but even at the lake's present low level, crossing it by bike would require the use of SCUBA equipment. Alas, I am unqualified to use such advanced gear. Please forgive us both for the terrible let-down .Can you ride across the lake or do you need bigger tires?
On this ride, no. Seriously. On other rides in this area? Let's just say they weren't Daquiris, but adult beverages may have been consumed here and there. The wedding's reception may have featured a beautiful location...and an open bar. Not that the latter fact has any bearing on...well...yea. .Adventures on the Frozen Daquiri Truck?
It's been such a wonderful break in period, too! I love that its first metric century came on the Katy Trail.You are definitely putting THAT ^ bike to the test for its break in period.
Wow. Great ones, as usual. I would love to ride a covered bridge at some point, but never considered what all that lumber might mean for bicycle tires. Yikes!From yesterday’s ride:
Just inside a covered bridge.
If you’ve never ridden through one, CAUTION!! While I didn’t have trouble this time, the groves will gobble up a skinny tire!!!!
Through farmland with old farm houses is a great feeling to me.
The section that weaves ribbonlike through the rocks & pines is pure sweetness to me. I grew up around white pines. I love their aroma and how they whisper with the wind. Rushing through this is a prize to me.
