Manage episode 337749980 series 3293377
In the spring of 1973, Rochester Michigan, Grandpa Hill found freedom, fun, and adventure on his light and fast 10 speed bicycle. He had saved up for this bike and it met all of his needs and then some. Grandpa had plans of pedaling his bike on many long rides packed with adventure. In this episode he takes his bicycle on one very risky ride with his friend Bill.
His plans to ride that bike on trips that were 100’s of miles long were shattered when the bike crumpled against a curb. In the wreck he loses his bike, breaks his arm, all while skipping school. He does not want to admit his pains, especially not to his Dad that offered help.
Gorf and Marshmallow help the younger listener figure out what this growing up story is about. There were losses, and, yes lessons were learned, the hard way.
