It’s late March and we have a forecast of snow tonight and tomorrow night. It rains six days out of seven and the one day a week it’s sunny, or at least dry, I’m mowing the lawn or tackling other chores. Getting out on two wheels is difficult.

I feel like those two kids in Cat In The Hat.

The urge to get out on a multi-day trip is driving me crazy. I spend more time than I should in Google Maps planning out possible routes, paying special attention to trips that don’t require riding over mountain — snow-covered — passes. The idea of taking the same trips as last year occurred to me, but with the twist of riding them in reverse order.

I’m really itching to ride.
