Presently, a lot of the nation is beneath a blanket of snow, ice and freezing temperatures. Not Southern California, although – this previous weekend noticed temperatures north of 80 – I needed to bust out my flip-flops and work on my foot tan!
Simply kidding. I’m not initially from right here, and don’t have tan ft. I grew up with the chilly, and albeit, together with the seasons, it’s the one factor I miss most about house (moreover my household after all). However being able to journey bikes yr spherical is one thing I simply can’t take as a right, even given my earlier assertion, which might most likely be deemed sacrilegious by many Californians. Excalifornicate me then!
Please don’t, I prefer it right here.
Rising up, when it obtained chilly sufficient and the lakes and ponds froze over, that’s the place you might usually discover my associates, household and me. We might ice-fish (learn: drink beer), go skating, and take our dirtbikes/quads/snowmobiles/Jeeps and vans out, carving mini racetracks into the ice. We’d go spherical and spherical with our studded tires till the ice obtained too skinny and began turning to slush. Consider it or not, we really even constructed fires on the market – it obtained that chilly typically. Man, these had been the times…
The video beneath depicts a scene that isn’t that totally different from all of the dumb and humorous shit I used to get into out on the frozen lakes. The very best half is watching how shut, but up to now, they got here to catching the runaway bike. And many people most likely know the sensation too, of working on the ice, realizing you may run sooner however, due to all of your layers, heavy boots, burning lungs and lack of traction, it simply wasn’t meant to be… That’s life’s method of laughing at you, I suppose.
Like dangling a carrot earlier than the horse, take a second and revel in this group’s humorous misfortune as they attempt to catch the runaway bike. Hopefully it’ll deliver you some laughter and heat in these chilly occasions.
