August – 2017

Another good unicycling month even including the family.

I also caught the awards ceremony for the MR340, cheering on my friends!

It wouldn’t be a little adventure with some adversity. On my ride home, the throttle cable on the motorcycle broke on the highway. It was a bit of a close call coasting to a safe place to pull over, but I had some help from a fellow traveler. Almost 2 hours later, I made it home.

Hiatt and Kris came in for a baseball game and good fun was had all around.

Office Unicycle – 8/14/2017

It has been a while since I last brought my unicycle into the office. There were several new people that might be interested in trying it out. Let the fun begin!

Krista Goldman

Jeff Hug

Dave Bubinik

Brandon Chisom

Brad Pagel

They did okay, but I don’t think any of them are going to pursue it any farther.

Katy Trail Boonville, MO – 7/7/2017

I was going to KC to pick up Sonora after a week with her cousins. I got the bright idea to leave early and ride on the Katy Trail in Boonville, MO. So I jumped out of work early and packed up getting on the road quickly. I was in Boonville before I knew it and crossed north over the Missouri river to a trail head. I went east towards Rocheport, MO hoping to reach the town.

I did see some fantastic sights along the way. I turned around after the 8 mile mark and came all the way back and then some more to go over the Missouri river.

I ended up riding about 18 miles on a perfect evening. On the remaining drive to KC, I told my dad I was coming in so they would expect me. Then in the morning, I went out to the campsite and picked Sonora up. It was a very quick out and back, but worth it to spend that one on one time with Sonora in the car.

Katy Trail with Corvin – 7/6/2017

Corvin and I went out for a unicycle ride on the Katy Trail. We didn’t set any distance or time records, but we did spend time together. I like hearing Corvin talk about his life and the things that interest him. He even got up on the big unicycle for a bit. While he can do it, its still a little much for him. But at the rate he is growing and getting better, its only a matter of time.
