In the last third of my life, I have taken up off-roading.

One of the toys we have on the property is a 4-wheel all-terrain vehicle, also known as a "quad". Although any good 4-wheel-drive vehicle can get up and down the road to our cabin, the quad is really essential for more off-track destinations. It's also a good workhorse for carting things around the the property, like 5-gallon jugs of water, gasoline, or building materials.

So, it makes sense that I learn to drive one.

Which I did, before Keith even got here, at my daughter's insistence. So today, when it looked like we'd have fair weather for awhile, Keith and I hiked up the hill to get it, since we anticipated needing to fetch water.

Keith and I hiked up to get the quad. We could have driven the Jeep, but wanted the excercise.
