Olympia High Vis JacketLast Wednesday I purchased a new Olympia riding jacket from Maxim. I have wanted one of these ever since I saw a group of riders wearing a high-vis yellow jackets. I could see these riders literally from a mile away but the other riders in the group seemed to get lost in the background. I thought “if a jacket makes you that visible I want one.” So yesterday I rode the VFR to Sherman to have lunch with my dad. After lunch I rode over to my mom’s assisted living place to check on her. I walked in and I walked to the dining area to check and see if she is still at lunch. (She was not.) As I walked by a table and one of the inmates asked me “what kind of uniform is that?” I had on my Olympia two piece riding suit with my newly acquired high-vis yellow jacket. “Uniform” I asked? He said “you must work for the highway department or somethin’!”
