A ride, a project, and a date - how I used my '16 Rancher yesterday

Howdy friends,

This morning I was thinking how perfectly my Saturday went, yesterday. Gorgeous weather, fun, and we got lots of work done around the house.

My 2016 Honda Rancher was involved 3 times during the day.

1. At 5:00am I did a 27-mile loop ride out into the forest and rode some new trails. On the ride, I saw 2 herds of elk and 2 herds of antelope.

2. At 11:00am I ran to the lumber store to pick up some 2x4x104 for a house project. (hit 2500 miles on the way back)

3. At 5:00pm we left the kids at home with a sitter and went on a date - took a 3 hour ride out into the forest just to get away from it all.

It was a great day. And, our Rancher was a big part of it. Pics below.

Sounds like you thoroughly enjoyed your day creed. Nice to see a Honda used for its intended purpose too, seems to play a huge role in your day to day chores as well as a hobby :-)

Good read.

Nice post Creed. What a day and retirement wouldn't add a thing! Besides, some one has to pay for all this stuff.

Not all Saturdays go that well...but I live for the weekends. Endure the work week to enjoy the weekends, I'm sure some of you are the same.

Yes, it's not like I think all week..."hmm, how can I use my Rancher this weekend." It just fits our family and situation right now.
