    It was very warm today - the warmest it's been almost all spring ... almost.

    I decided to go for a nice evening jaunt on the VFR and enjoy it. No rush to be anywhere, just a nice ride.

    I started in my town of Garson, MB and made a big loop through 3-4 other communities. It's very rural here - the roads are gently twisty and go up and down. speed limits are between 60 KPH and 80 KPH.

    Thanks for sharing!! Love the fort photos, beautiful sky. Lots of green in the grass.
    How warm did it get? When do leaves start filling up the trees?

    Bizarre. I replied to this earlier and it didn't save??

    It went to about 21*C today (about 69*F). This is the first real decent weather we've had. If the weather forecast is correct, we're in for a gorgeous week. I'd suspect we'll have a full canopy on the trees within the next 2 weeks or so.

    I was going nuts recently. I am certain a post I made never appeared as well.

    Nothing like a little fun outing eh.. ;) I did one too, but it wasn't photo worthy, there's just something about those quick and easy no stress get outs. And here I thought you where Randys neighbor.

    Haha... I would have been Randy's neighbor if I had lived where I am now when he was living in Manitoba. :)

    Yup, nothing quite going out for a rip.
