Last day on the trails…….. for a while.

Slept in a little bit this morning, without the effects of being ‘behind’ for the entire day….. Had our coffee… a small bite to eat and out the door for another day of leading people up the mountain top and through our local rain forest.  Two very unique groups today — first tour was one of the slowest tours I’ve ever done — but I’m good with that…. I’d rather have some one say they have never ridden before and is scared to death – than the hot dogs that says “Yeah – I’ve ridden my entire life” when it becomes quickly and painfully obvious….. they rode a 4 wheeler once in their life, 15 years ago…… and trust me – I can tell you who is who before we get off of the lot real good……… First group was friendly, engaging and did not deny they were VERY inexperienced.. I like and appreciate those type….. SOOOO much easier to deal with.  Second group – all said they ‘grew up riding’…… like wise… it takes less than a couple of minutes to realize… they were indeed… very experienced riders. That can be a fun group too [a very fast tour] Only down side….. is these folks tend to “abuse” a rented machine. Happily, one ‘light’ warning about machine abuse….. and everybody behaved and made for a very fast paced fun tour……. one extreme to another today. We had a couple of decent tippers today – but the majority let us [collectively] work our a$$ of to ensure they had a good time and didn’t bother to express their gratitude through a tip. One of the struggles of dealing with the general public.

The day finally done, machines washed and filled with gas and put up – we had JUST enough time to clean up a little bit and jump into vehicles and get to the airport to pick up island ‘kids’ and their kids and deliver them to yon mountain top. Back at our place…. a [small] bite to eat – a LOT to drink and trying to get my stuff up here before I go back to diving ‘for a living’………………………. I’m out….. tired and a lot to drink……. gotta love island life………

Good Night Ya’ll ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Thankx for stopping in~!

Born in Germany as an Army brat - I moved permanently to the United States about the time I was ready to start school - Dad put to me to work when I turned 13 tearing off roofs and packing shingles.. I did that, DE tasseled corn and bucked hay all the way through high school. After graduation, moved down South for a year or so trying to figure what I wanted to do. Finally came home and joined the Air Force serving almost 5 years - which included a 3 year tour in Germany, where I met my Queen. Came home and started working as a roofer. Economy went to crap and I knew I would not be able to support my growing family the way I wanted to, so I pestered the HR department at General Electric until they hired me. A very quick almost 34 years, 4 Daughters and 9 Grandkids later - here I am .... waiting as patiently as I can, to start the next chapter of our life - romping around in the Caribbean Sea checking out the various islands that we have not been to yet. Holy $hit what a ride~!!!! ;-)
