I normally ride with others, and it gets a bit competitive at times. It's a strange sport where the pace is too high for a chat, and we communicate mainly be our actions. After the ride, we stop at a café, but I soon get tired of the worldly aspects of it all, and say my goodbyes. Ham radio is also a type of conversation where most are brief and to the point. In either case, I like the idea of being seen yet not being seen. Anonymity amongst friends. Some would say I was a social hermit.Ok, after having had 1 people visit for the summer, my wife is now on a week long road trip to see her brother and her collage roommate. I am home along and enjoying spending quality time with myself and the dog. However, not sure I am ready for total isolation from the planet.
I am happy when I get visitors, and I am also happy when they leave me alone. So, I am happy regardless.
