I know this is a bike site so let’s all advocate and support the building of safe bike and mobility lanes. But if that’s not your cup of tea here’s a simple cause to get behind. I’ll explain, why I will not run to catch a bus or train, ever again. Nor will I ever… Continue reading Advocate for better!
It’s been a while since Lucky and Shelby have been to the waterfront. It started out as a foggy morning, but it ended up as a blustery and cool day. We pedaled Shelter Island, Harbor Island, and the old Naval Training Center which is now Liberty Station a (small)housing, shopping, and nice park area. Then… Continue reading Pedaling San Diego

Motherhood/Fatherhood vs the Cochlear Implant - It’s not going to be easy, but you kinda have to plan for the end results. I love my… Continue reading Life without hearing

We've only got the medium sized tent, because we can’t find the smaller one. I have a feeling it’s with one of… Continue reading It’s a lazy man camping trip
