Our New Toy



Gus and I have a new hobby. When I returned from Germany Gus told me he'd had a fantastic time in Utah with friends who had a quad and he wanted one. He caught me at a good time, because I was feeling guilty about spending all that money on myself for a trip to Germany.
So......we went out and bought this.


I have to admit I wasn't too enthusiastic about it until we took it out for a day and realized it could be fun dashing around the hills in this cute little thing.


Last week we took it up past Idaho City and roared up the mountain trails and couldn't believe how well it handled.


We stopped at 6100 feet and had a picnic lunch with that fantastic view to enjoy while we ate.


We stopped off at Amy's on the way home so we could get a picture of the two of us with our new toy. Since the weather is getting a bit cold, this was probably our last chance to take it out this year, but look for reports of our adventures in the spring.

Too late. My hubby already saw it...and drove it...and has been nagging me ever since.

Whoa, that thing is waaay cooler than what I was picturing. I was imagining something smaller, and something you have to straddle. I want one! Have fun, you crazy kids!

PS. Dad looks like a total stud in that last photo.
