i got lost today.

August 20, 2005

At 7:00PM, i went out for my daily bike ride. The plan was to go from my house, to the aunt’s house, and back – the usual 40 minute ride.

Well, i left, and I was more tired than usual. This is because i didn’t get much sleep last night. Somehow, I managed to get out to the aunt’s house in a more timely manner than usual. While out there, i looked ahead on the pollyann trail, and i thought i could see it curving back in a way that would send me back down lakeville road. So, i continued down the pollyann trail.

Well, before i knew it, i was lost. I just continued down the trail for a while until i found some trails that lead off the pollyann trail.

When i was off the pollyann trail, i rode through some kinda farm-type area, until i reached a residential road. When i reached that road, i went around the area for a while until i found something i could recognize; Leonard Elementary. The school i went to through grades K-4. The school seamed to have changed alot. The playground has lost alot of it’s good things. No more black-top, no more basketball hoops, it’s as dull as dullsville now.

Well, after riding around, i still didn’t know which way oxford was. So, i asked a guy, and he told me that i would have to go down the road, and around rochester road, and that would lead me to lakeville road.

So, i went all the way through there, and it took me a good while to get through it all. Eventually, i made it down to lakeville road.

After that, i just rode for a very long time until i got home. The road-side traffic was pretty unnerving, and i had to get off the bike to avoid accidentally swerving out into traffic a few times.

When i got home, it was 9:05PM. So, there’s my longest bike ride of the year.
