What started out as a mini vacation changed instantly. Just 2 weeks before our real road trip traveling vacation, our faithful car died . With our ELF recumbent bike nicely strapped into our trailer we were off to the mountains when the engine blew in our little old van. Some days, it just pays to… Continue reading Rethinking the vacation
I was trying to explain what it’s like with my Cochlear Implant, and since it’s almost Mother’s Day I came up with this analogy. I think it explains it well. 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
Remind me once again why we thought pedaling to a campground at night after work, was a good idea. OMG the potholes! We had to stop a couple of times to temporarily fix the lights. Because of all those potholes we couldn’t see and actually hit last night, it jarred a few connectors loose. After… Continue reading So we went bike camping
Well this is going to be interesting. After work we're pedaling 15 miles, probably in the dark and stopping at Costco for a hotdog. Then we'll pedal a little further to the campground.

It's open and fun. But with the nasty weather we've been having I built side shields for it. The clear… Continue reading I love my ELF “Shelby” but in the rain, I wish, I had the PEBLs windshield wiper.
I really miss pedaling my e-recumbent trike everyday. But between the rain and my cochlear implant surgery it's not possible. But this morning it was fairly nice and the ear is getting better. Just for some reference. I’m 10 days post op from Cochlear Implant surgery, and I just pedaled my ebike a very short… Continue reading Everyday it’s a new adventure
Well I probably shouldn’t of done it, since I just had Cochlear Implant surgery 6 days ago. But I pedaled round trip 3.5 just to get out of the house. A simple stop to get a soda and back home has made a world of difference in how I feel. Anyone who says E-assist bikes… Continue reading It’s the little accomplishments in life that can make a huge difference
