Water, mud and fire mark weekend of wheeling

Smokey and I hit the trails at the Canadian River on Saturday after riding in the annual Tri-State Fair parade in Amarillo. It was a brief trip, as one of the Jeeps in the group was suffering repeated starter issues. But, it wasn’t entirely without incident, as one of the rigs got buried in the river, and another caught fire after I left! (Thankfully, it was a small blaze, and both occupants were unharmed.)

I recorded a little video, but work has prevented me from scrubbing through it for clips to share. So, watch for more soon.

NOTE: Thanks to Jessica for the photos of Smokey at Big Red!

I’d not planned to do any wheeling this week, but when an unexpected invite for a night run came my way, I took advantage of it. So, while my wife and daughter did some clothes shopping, Tommy and I took to the hills along the Canadian River.

Tommy enjoyed hitting the trails as the sun crept closer to the horizon, but his fears got the best of him after sundown. (For the record, he did an admirable job of trying to hid them.) So, we parted ways with the group only an hour or so after sunset, but, it was a good time out as father and son!

I didn’t shoot much in the way of photos this weekend (and, half of these aren’t even mine), though I did capture some video that I’ll post later.
