The Tragically Hip @ 1st Ave. The Fully and Completely Tour

Excuse this non biking post for a moment…….

I’ve been a fan of these guys since 1991.
A couple friends turned me on to The Hip….. and the rest, as they say, is history!!
Since that time I’ve seen them perform live 17 times. If you have never seen them live, I can’t stress enough how good they are live, plus their music will definitely get ya hooked!!

Cindi got two tickets days after they announced the tour, in May I believe.

In all those shows, I’ve been waiting for one song, and Monday night at this iconic venue……

I got my wish!!!
All I can say is DAMN DAMN DAMN!!!!

The only thing that would’ve made hearing this song live that much better, would’ve been to have had a friend of mine (who loved the Hip as much as I do) by my side. Sadly he past away 8 years ago.
Jimmy K. You were in my thoughts as I jammed out to that song!!!!

My lovely partner accompanied me on our journey to Mpls.
Thanks for joining me Cindi….. we witnessed the best high energy Hip performance I can ever remember!!
Love ya!!!

Cindi took some awesome shots!!!

After the show we walked across the street to O’Donovan’s for a quick bite to eat, and a drink or two….. we used to visit this establishment when Cindi lived in the Twin cities,  and were home in time for me to get to work by 5 a.m.
It was SO worth it!!!!!
Peace……..

Legion Trails: Grand Rapids, Mn.

Today was my day off….. Thursday….. what a suck day to have off!!! I guess it could be worse…. LOL

Anyway, we made the best of it and drove the 40 minutes west to Grand Rapids and rode GRIMBA’S sweet single-track.Β 
Almost an hour and a half, and we had 6 miles under our tires.

Our two are starting to really get comfortable riding here!! I guess it helps that they’ve now been riding at the Legion trails for 4 plus years.

Both of them have a soft spot for the area of trail known as “The Plantation.”
I have to agree with them!! πŸ™‚
Grimba has done an awesome job mowing this area recently…. I think kudos go out to Wallace K. and crew; we didn’t run into one downed tree or any trail obstruction!! Good job guys!!
