EXCERPT FROM "OF BIKES AND VALLEYS"
The rocks got considerable smaller as we rode, and by midday we reached a stream. We stopped there and turned all engines off, I was the last one to make it. The site was perfect; we could actually hear the stream running playfully among the green surroundings.
"Well, Peter. If you want to keep riding with us, you have to get in there." John said pointing at the stream.
I thought he was kidding so I only smiled back at him, but then my uncle made it final by stating, "We're serious, kid. You either take a dip, or take a hike. We leave without you."
"I can find my way back, I am a Scout," I said proudly.
They all laughed at me miserably, but only for a second, then they turned all serious again, including Fred, the one who laughed about everything.
Mortified and resigned to my fate, I took off my clothes careful with the jacket so they could not see my gun, then only in my underwear I ran to the stream and dived.
