    Tractor up!

    I happened to be wearing my BFN Great Lakes Region jersey today when I came upon this guy out on County Road 14 just west of Ionia.



    Yes, that's a real pumpkin. Since it's so early and so warm, I expect he'll need a head transplant before Halloween. I'll have to go back in a couple of weeks to check.
    My two favorite things in life are libraries and bicycles. They both move people forward without wasting anything.

    Lucky for me, I work at a library and bike to work.

    Does anyone know where the love of God goes, when the waves turn the minutes to hours?

    I like tractors. Lots of them out around here now. A couple nights ago I was drafting an International with an empty hay wagon at 23.5 mph for a bit, then decided to try and pass. I cranked it up and went around, stayed ahead for maybe 1/3 of a mile, but tractors don't get tired. He started catching back up, but I knew where he was turning off and managed to force my legs to keep ahead of him. I was only about a 1/2 mile from home, and my legs were smoked. I couldn't even walk into the house, had to sit next to the bike for a bit. BTW, combines are the best to draft behind, and provide the most motivation to stay way in front of them.
