So far I am hearing this works well with a mesh jacket…any real world experience with jackets like the KLIM Traverse out there? In hot weather ATGATT is how we ride and this is one way to keep the core cool. No different from wearing heated gear in the winter.
Enough said….even if it is over 30C or 90F…as most would say dress for the FALL….or don’t ride…just my opinion.

Just a quick post. I have been receiving a few emails about folks out there wanting me to post guest posts on our blog.
Presently, we are not accepting guest posts due to just being too busy with wedding plans and life.
Please hold requests until September and I will respond and review requests then. Thanks for your patience.
Had a great time with a bunch of colleagues that we also call friends at our home for our pre wedding shower. Traditionally the wedding couple do not host the shower but I insisted we have it here and all our friends brought the food and goodies to us. Beautiful day on our deck we built and finished, so all was good. Wedding date August 14th 2013….right around the corner.

My colleagues had this special cake made for Cheryl’s and my pre wedding shower yesterday, July 20.
It was a perfect get together of RCMP and BCT colleagues and friends. Thank you guys and only about 3 weeks to go until the wedding!
Cheryl and I have been working hard to build a backyard we can call home.
Almost all done and we have to be honest we feel pretty good about our team effort.
Two grrls living and building more adventures.
Powerful story about lessons learned….

One Year Has Passed
It’s hard to look in the mirror and think that my scars are already an entire year old. Touching my stomach and rib cage, I can’t imagine looking this way and feeling this pain for the rest of my life. I still feel as if at any moment I will wake up from this terrible dream and be comfortable in my own skin once again. Knowing that it’s real, that there is nothing I can do to change it, I am reminded of my mistakes every minute of everyday. I am also reminded how lucky I am to be alive as I close my eyes and remember why I still feel pain after an entire year of healing. Imagining that if I had not survived the accident, I wouldn’t have anything to touch at all, I smile when my fingers run over a thick layer of scar tissue in place of my once soft skin. I know my life has a purpose, and I strive everyday to live up to the task that has been placed at my feet.
It was a beautiful Sunday morning even through my blurred vision. I was on the back of my friend Shaun’s GSXR 750 and was excited to be on a sport bike, even if it was as a passenger, after a long streak of no riding whatsoever. I had shed my prescription glasses for a pair of sunglasses, my cowboy hat for an oversized helmet, and quickly thrown on a pair of capri jeans, tennis shoes, and a sweatshirt over my bikini. I thought nothing of the fact that I had practically no protection against the asphalt if anything were to happen. I figured that we couldn’t get into a wreck; it simply wouldn’t happen to me. It’s amazing how fast life came at me that day.
Approaching mile marker seven on highway 550, I noticed that I had to start fighting the wind to stay behind Shaun without pulling on him too much. I placed my hands on the gas tank and pushed myself into him as much as possible without crowding him. As we came around to the right and went down the hill, we kept accelerating. I was scared, but thought I could handle the force of the wind as it suddenly picked up much more than in the moments before. I started to slide back on the seat and felt the cool air fill the small space between my chest and Shaun’s back. Continue reading “Extreme Road Rash: Cause, Effect, and Lesson Learned”
