|Uphill biking with tween: whimpering guaranteed.|
When you are huffing and puffing through the grassy trails of the Black Hills National Forest on a mountain bike, you also find yourself wide awake. The pine-needly smells, rocks, boulders, skittering animals, spooked deer and the occasional whine of your child, on a bike for almost the first time in a year, conspire to keep you far from drowsy. It is nice to have the (almost) full faculty of my body again after weeks of Dengue fever -- even if it means lots of sore spots from climbing, biking and eating far too much wonderful, very-much-missed cheese.
Too much cheese and a foreign climate have given me less-than-ideal skin. Fortunately, there are products like Royal Canadian Laboratories' all-natural Mineral Water Spray to help with that...
Have a tween who prefers video games to biking in the forest? Lucky Gameplay's channel has lots of tips, including this one for Minecraft.
