So, this is Keisha, my first truee northern acquisition. Actually, speaking of something which is living in terms of 'acquiring' is a bit heartless. Basically, this is my new dog - one which is uniquely equipped to deal with the north.
Me on the other hand? How prepped am I for the north? I have the coat, the wind pants, the mitts/scarf/toque, and - I like to believe - a bit of the right mind-set. All that was left to complete the package was this...
This is the new machine. I wish I could get together a better picture, but those will come. I'm having problems with the starting system...and not just because it's a big piece of machinery; actually, one of the problems was that I had too much power in my pull! How is that even possible?
When you see this Cat in real life, you can see the dark windshield, a leather double seat, and an altogether sleeker look...it just looks better. Right now dusk starts around 1pm and is fully dark by about 2:30. I'll try to get some pics of me on it sometime at lunch!
'Aloha' to all those northerners starting on their southern vacations!
