Not a Gift Guide 2017

Merry Christmas! As has become my tradition I’m going to share with you the things I bought this year that I really enjoyed. Trailer Jack Stand I bought this as an impulse buy when getting tire covers for my brand new trailer tires. This stupid looking plastic cone that my trailer jack rests on when […] more

I haven’t been very good about writing here, mostly because I’m uninspired, tired, and not doing any riding or running which doesn’t lead to much of that third (w)R.
