Bike Ride

I think the picture above would have turned out much better with my SLR, but I really don’t want to lug around such a big camera while out on a bike ride.  Today I left the house around 8am in search of some good deals and a great bike ride.  I was only able to satisfy one of those however.  I went to three garage sales.  The first one was pretty good, seemed like nice folks, didn’t have much out, but there were some DVDs that I should have probably asked how much they were, but I hate it when people don’t mark things with prices, its garage sale 101!  The next sale was a total bust, they hardly had anything out.  The last place I stopped at was equally disappointing.

The best part about the ride was ride. While disappointed in the garage sales, I did have a good time and it made my bike ride interesting. I printed out the map above before I went so I could find everything. I thought I might see some other garage sales while I was out that didn’t have anything listed on craigslist, which is where I found out about the ones that I went to. Irvine has great bike paths, I really enjoy riding them and am thankful that they are there.


It’s all in the name!
