Going in to the weekend I had great plans for riding every day, enjoying time with my lovely and hitting up roller-coasters at Carowinds. Can I tell you that I did not do almost any of those things? While the closest I got to riding was overhauling the Airborne Goblin Saturday morning, and cleaning out my car from all the water bottles I have been…

Flow at Lake Norman State Park

Yesterday, after attempting to play a few rounds of paintball games for the first time, I quickly loaded up my Green Goblin to hit up Lake Norman State Park before the daylight faded.

As my family members can vouch, I could sleep a day away and believe me I have! I think it is a trait that I learned…
