I have a “friend” kind of an internet acquaintance, who was a college professor at Indiana Wesleyan University. He name is Keith Drury. He would always go on adventures during school breaks. I love to read about them. Once he section-hiked the Appalachian Trail. Another time he floated the Colorado River. He has hiked the length of the
Southern Upland Way and the West Highland Way in Scotland. He has canoed the Missouri River. Here is the one that captured my attention: one summer he and a friend rode the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway on mopeds.
Lois has always said she want a moped. I’ve never thought a moped would be useful where we live, but today I got to thinking. Some day I would like to ride the length of the Blue Ridge Parkway with Lois on mopeds.
Together we could see the blue mountains roll into the distance. Together we could smell the mountain laurel and feel the fresh breeze in our faces. Together we could sleep in little quaint places along the way and eat outdoors. We could sample the local food together and see the local sights and breathe in the spring mountain air. I think that might be a unique way to keep our love fresh. I have a file with maps and I’m making plans. We will see what happens. I don’t want our love to get stale.
What do you all think? Anybody have any ideas that might help us?
