Its Electric!

This is a really cool project. I really want to do an Electric conversion of some kind in the near future. I have been reading about all these guys for years and I guess I should just get started. I am not sure whethe
it will be a 2 or 4 wheeler but look for it here.

Tour de Cure

Testing my scribefire extension for firefox. I thought I would tell you about my tour de cure ride this year. My 2 year old Granddaughter Mattie is type 1 diabetic. Being type 2 myself, I never gave it a thought to ride in the tour. Because it was a last minute thing, I only road the 30 miler. Next year I am going for the full 100 miles! Here is a pic of me at the starting line. I was the only recumbent in the group. It was a great day for cycling.

I combined it with another hobby of mine, Ham Radio, and had a radio tracker plotting my position though out the course. It worked OK until I got out in the sticks. I hope to fix that problem for next year. I will be looking for sponsers so get out those checkbooks!


Hello all,

Well, I have moved my blog to wordpress.  For those of you who don’t know, I am not very good about keeping my entries current but I do write about things that I think are important.  I have a very wide range of interests so you never know what you will get here.  This is mostly for my family and friends to keep up with me.  See you down the page….
