In the morning of December, the father and son packed up their gear and prepared to set off.
In 2020, Qian Hao will be 50 years old.
When chatting with people, he often missed the youth time spent in his hometown of Xiaogan, Hubei Province. It was his most carefree day.There, he married Wu Jianhua, a girl from the same village, and gave birth to his son Qian Kun. They had their own business, stable income, and a promising future.
Qian Hao is willing to endure hardships, love to study, learn by doing, move, welder, civil engineering, big and small work, is a well-known talent on the construction site, once had his own engineering team.
Life begins again.
In 18 years of Northern Drifting, Qian Hao moved 22 times.
In 2020, Qian Hao moved four times.
Now, he lives in an apartment renovated from a private house outside the East Fourth Ring Road. A family of three shares a room, which is not spacious but still warm.Qian Hao said that when he was young, the husband and wife were busy with their livelihoods, and they often locked their son at home alone, with no small partners and no one to speak with him.
Qian Hao felt deeply responsible for this.He believes that his son's introverted character was formed at that time.
When he was in junior high school, the teacher of the school's folk orchestra asked Qian Kun to choose between Erhu and Dizi. He did not hesitate and chose Dizi because it was cheap.
Qian Kun inherited his father's love for music and grew up to be the chief flute of the school folk band. The occasional performance on stage was a rare highlight in his youth.
Facing the difficult problem of reading, his father Qian Hao is also anxious.
College entrance examination missed
Although with the support of his parents, Qian Kun applied for the adult college entrance examination and obtained an adult education undergraduate diploma, but he soon discovered that this diploma was completely uncompetitive in the recruitment market in Beijing.
Wu Jianhua likes to listen to his son singing, but now his son seldom sings at home, playing mobile games has become his biggest pastime.
After working in a spicy hot pot restaurant and a milk tea shop, in 2020, Qian Kun decided to join his father as a takeaway rider.
Qian Hao is old, but his brain is as flexible as when he was young. After each order, he did not rush to set off, but first studied the map and optimized the route. He did not use the rack car as a navigation like other riders, but always Can arrive in the shortest time.
But Qian Hao rarely teaches these skills to his son. What he doesn't want to admit is that the criticism of his son is actually a criticism of himself. It is difficult for him to accept that his son has gone his own way.
Sing at the rider dinner
This is the largest dinner party in the Beijing rider circle, and it is especially attractive to single young riders.
But the purpose of Qian Hao's participation is more to broaden his son's social circle and get familiar with him, hoping to get the care of his seniors.He hopes that his son can speak up at the dinner and impress everyone.
At the end of the dinner, some riders have already started to leave. After being partially persuaded by their parents, Qian Kun finally got on the stage, but as soon as the beginning of a song was sung, the sound was turned off and the props on the stage were removed .
Qian Kun put on the mask again and put down the microphone, feeling a little at a loss.
Qian Hao was in a hurry, stepped away from the crowd, found the organizer, and begged his son to finish singing.
After Qian Kun sang one song, in response to everyone's enthusiastic request, he returned to sing two more songs.Off the stage, Qian Hao used his mobile phone to take a video of his son, and his wife Wu Jianhua next to him shed tears.
Every time she moved home, Wu Jianhua would throw away some things, but she kept Qian Kun's flute, drums and electronic organ, as well as large and small awards.Wu Jianhua still has a little thought, these things will be used by his son in the future.
A few years ago, Qian Hao bought a house in Wuhan and repaid the loan little by little.Qian Kun plans to earn more money in the new year to take up the pressure of repayment.
