Riding Everyday in November • Week 2

Riding Everyday in November

So here's some of my rides for the 2nd week of riding everyday in November. 
And a little note on blogspot. I've debated continuing with Blogspot. I still like blogging. Like the format and the layout  so much better than facebook, and without all the Facebook garbage. But blogging from my phone is tedious at best, and getting all the elements, video, photo, and text all onto my computer is time consuming. Blogspot has it's own issues as well. It seems like facebook makes it so easy to share, video, photo and text and Blogspot tries to make it more difficult than it should be. Partly my own fault trying to blog from a phone. 

MONDAY, NOV. 9
‘Tis the season of Christmas tree harvesting. 🎄
A side note: In this year of COVID-19 many people are decorating early for Christmas. Trying to add some joy in this dismal year.

Looking up the hill at the summit. The real summit.
I’m standing on the false summit that breaks your heart. 😈

WEDNESDAY, NOV. 11
Short ride today. I was supposed to run today, but I jammed my foot into a piece of furniture, so running might not happen for a while. Felt ok to ride though, so that’s good. 😊 
8-11

THURSDAY, NOV. 12
Thar’s fire in them thar hills! It’s hard to see but there are slash piles burning up in the foothills around Lacomb. It can be a frightening sight after dark if the fires are really glowing. Most of the time all we see is some smoke. It’s a controlled burn, so no worries. 
9-12

FRIDAY, NOV. 13
A tree died in Lacomb. It left an ugly trunk. A local chainsaw artist turned it into something beautiful and fun. There are little animals and objects carved on every side. 
10-13

SATURDAY, NOV. 14
Saturday is usually a long ride day, but today was raining and windy, so I went a did intervals and Ron rode along with me. We stopped for one photo only. A covered bridge. Classic!
11-14

Larwood Covered Bridge
Scio, Oregon

SUNDAY, NOV. 15
A short recovery ride out to the big water wheel. I think they lock it up in winter as it only spins during summer. It’s a cool wheel in a humble setting. Not a pond or stream, but simply in an irrigation ditch. 
12-15

What I’ve been doing is getting all of the pictures, video, etc. uploaded using the phone. Then use the laptop to format, change size, and add text. Seems to be easier than trying to deal with their horrible interface on the phone.

I e given up trying to blog via blogspot via phone, I use a laptop exclusively....if you ever find an app that actually works, let us know!

Nice pics, I like the way that dead tree was re-purposed

Thanks Dom, I’ll let you know if I ever find something. Just seems a misstep for Blogspot not to offer a decent phone app.

Richard, that’s kind of how I end up doing it. You’d think they could come up with something less cumbersome.
