Dear Homeowners,

Fall is arriving soon at Oak Point. I am looking forward to watching the community start to dress in its glorious fall foliage. Northern Pines will be working hard at fall cleanup. As always, we will do our best to notify homeowners of projected application dates as we get closer to them.

Thank you again for all your patience, understanding, and compliance during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are working with our staff, as well as state and local authorities to ensure the health and safety of our residents and staff.

As always, please feel free to reach out to me via phone or email with any questions, comments, or concerns. I look forward to seeing you all around the community.

Sincerely,
Eric Hurt
Community Manager

Go For a Spin

bicyclist closeup

When was the last time you hopped on a bike? Cycling is a fantastic way to get regular, low-impact exercise and some fresh air as the seasons begin to change.

While getting exercise is a primary health benefit, did you know that cycling also offers a host of other benefits like:

  • Increasing brainpower
  • Improving your heart health
  • Contributing to weight loss
  • Lowering your cancer risk
  • Increasing your life span
  • Contributing to lower stress levels

Any of the above pique your interest? Before you take to the streets, there are a few basic things you need to do to stay safe.

First things first, make sure your bike is comfortable and ready to go by checking everything from your seat placement to your breaks. Next up, make sure your helmet fits properly and doesn’t move when you shake your head – keep that noggin’ safe! To make sure the rest of your pre-ride checklist is up to par, check out this helpful article from REI Co-op.

It's About the Journey

Couple looking at map in car

Itching for a trip but not ready to deal with large crowds just yet? Satisfy your wanderlust with a scenic road trip! Whether you want to go cross-country or just over the state line, we have plenty of route ideas to get you started. For any West Coast lovers, consider driving all along the Pacific Coast Highway and enjoying the ocean views of California. If you’re a history buff, Cape Cod offers a scenic and historic route through some of America’s oldest towns. For the ultimate cross-country drive, Route 66 goes from Chicago to California, giving you a sampling of the whole mid-west and western USA.

So, you’ve picked your route, but how to begin planning your trip? Here are a few necessities to start thinking about:

  • Where do you want to stop on your trip? Make sure to not only choose sights you want to see, but hotels and rest stops as well. Road trip planner apps are a great tool to help you stay organized.
  • What’s your budget for the trip? You’ll want to include stops, attractions, gas, and tolls in your calculations.
  • Is your car ready for the drive? Make sure to bring your vehicle in for routine checks and maintenance beforehand, and don’t forget a spare tire!
  • When will you be heading out? Consider the time of year. Do you need to factor in increased traffic? Potential rain or snow? A little research can give you the best times of year to travel on your chosen route.
  • Finally, time to pack! Of course, your clothes and toothbrush are important, but another great idea is to stock up your car with medical supplies, snacks and drinks, and entertainment options.

Happy road tripping! Where will you travel first?
