Down the Highway

We have staff who ride Harley’s and Honda’s (with dogs in tow!), several who have beautiful flower and vegetable gardens, and dogs of various sizes and breeds. We umpire baseball games, play yu-gi-oh! card games, do trivia, knit, crochet, cross stitch, and sew…….and let's not forget read.
I have worked for Sno-Isle libraries for 20 years. The library has always been a part of my life since I was very small child. I have a son 20 and a small dog, a chug (Chihuahua and pug mix) named Chico. I live on a farm that has 70 goats, 7 Llamas, 4 horses, 8 quail, 1 duck, 3 roosters, 1 hen, and 4 other dogs. We also have a big vegetable garden. I also like to ride Harley Davidson motorcycles! A couple of years ago I took a trip to bike week in Sturgis South Dakota. This trip is the one that I decided I needed a bike of my own! To plan for this trip I first picked up Rand McNally Road Atlas. We looked at the various different roads we could take to get there. When we picked out different stopping points I used the keyword option in our catalog to put in the different areas, such as Yellowstone. I had actually been to Yellowstone about five years prior so I was familiar with several books that I had used before but really liked Yellowstone & Grand Teton the best. Once I took the course for motorcycle riding and got my license, I started looking for a bike. I first purchased a 1986 Harley Davidson Sportster that is the traditional Harley Davidson blue, turquoise to me. I then found a 2006 Harley Davidson V-rod and fell in love with its beautiful burgundy color and comfort. My son also rides so we often go together. For rides around the sound I have used the Backroads of Washington: your guide to Washington’s Most Scenic Backroad Adventures by Diana Fairbanks and Exploring Washington’s Backroads by John Deviny. Where will my next ride take me?
