Old Rollerdave still exists! Come on, pick your jaws up off the floor, you'll get carpet lint in your mouths.
Anyone still even remember me after my lengthy absence?
Oh the stuff I've been through....
But I got Eagle (my Lightfoot Magnum recumbent trike) all tuned up and ridden today, and for the first time in years I was feeling pretty upbeat and hopeful about the whole thing, so I decided it was time to reconnect here.
Those who DO remember know that I could fill a thread with a novelization, so I'll keep it short.
I've been living in a town of 50 people for a few years and just moved into a slightly larger town that affords me the ability to get out and ride more. I got married last Nov 5th, we're expecting a baby sometime around Aug 1st.
I was nearly 500lbs when this odyssey began, I got down to 350, but towards the end it wasn't a healthy thing. Moved from Minnesota to Michigan, gained back probably 50 or 60lbs of it.
I had been ten years in a chair, very glad to have gotten out, haven't had to use the thing at all. I might not walk/ride as easy or as fast as everyone else, but I move pretty good for a guy my size/age.
Well, glad to be back, and I'll be on more because I missed posting here.
Peace out, Rollerdave
