    Weekend in Hyde Park

    Although not an official "Trip", we thought we might post a few pics from our weekend in Hyde Park. We were in Hyde Park for the weekend for an Easter celebration with the Reese family. We went fishing in the morning at a place called "Sportsman's Paradise" in Paradise. It is a place for fly fishing catch and release only and requires a membership which Gordon had through his business. Everyone had fun and caught a lot of fish. We then had a weenie roast at Gordon and Gretchen's outdoor fire pit, then we went back to Shelly's parents house where the kids colored eggs. While we were there I had a chance to try my new bike out a bit more, and Shelly drove her buggy around a bit also. The area is a fun place to ride with lot's of steep hills, and a few places to jump as can be seen in some of these pics. These high quality pictures were taken by Wayne Reese with his sweet camera. We really appreciated Wayne taking the time to do this especially in light of his recent knee operation. I suppose I was testing the new FMF pipe in these pics. FMF stands for "Flying Machine Factory" Professional freestyle and free riders jump roughly 200 feet at times on dirt bikes such as these, so it's easy to see the connection to a "flying machine" I don't think I will be reaching the 200 foot mark anytime soon, but it was definitely fun to catch a little air.

    Although not quite the "flying machine" that my bike is, Shelly's buggy is still a blast to drive around and a whole lot safer. It worked really well and doesn't require as much skill to drive.
