i was pretty bummed out the weather cancelled my tennis plans. instead of sitting around wasting my saturday, my friend and i decided to take a road trip up to squamish to pick up the plates another friend offered to lend me. it was a long drizzly drive, but it was nice to take shadow out for what might possibly be my last road trip with him. we got home and couldn’t wait to put the weights to good use – a one rep max kind of session. from the get go, i said i would be satisfied being able to deadlift one hundred and eighty five but i went on to attempt a twenty hundred and five which was a no go
the big milestone of shadow’s one hundred thousand kilometres has come quicker than i would have expected. driving is something i do a lot of, for both work and play. i get a lot of mileage just commuting to work, going to games and meeting up with friends. i put shadow’s work ethic to the test and it’s my reliable rock when it comes to taking me on adventures. for that i’m grateful knowing i have a trustworthy companion that works so tirelessly. don’t ever change all that you do
felt like taking a long drive out to the delta district tonight with one purpose in mind. i drive lots and i go all around the cities, but rarely do i get a chance to or have a reason to go so south past richmond. the atmosphere feels so different here where everything seems so sparse and mild. this is my new cool hangout place in delta, i guess there’s more reason to venture out here than before.
it’s with excitement i announce my shadow surpassed the 50000 mileage today. it’s taken me to a whole new level of smooth ride and i couldn’t have asked for anymore than what it has provided me. our relationship is approaching two years, feels like our bonding only began just yesterday. shadow is a true work horse working overtime all the time and still going strong to serve me day after day
what does this signal even mean?? already brought it into the service shop for annual car maintenance and very annoyed the light is still blinking every single start up. i must call into the service department to have them somehow to get rid of it, or maybe its time to change my brakes
leaving town and onto new york right after competition. tried to catch the full moon during our long ride to big apple. one of the most brutal drives ever driving nonstop overnight almost without any sleep and stoppages, talk about red eye drives. no place to stop even if we wanted to because all hotels were filled due to numerous flight cancellations at new jersey airport
