Been perusing the forums for a while.
I finally got around to registering.
God has blessed me with a great wife and two fantastic sons.
We live in a small town, pop 3300, in West Central Illinois. The area is sometimes cynically referred to by locals as "Forgotonia".
I work here as well as live here so communting is very easy. In fact, I often ride the bike home on my lunch hour.
I've never been a very serious rider, but am beginning to feel more and more compelled to spend more time in the saddle. I mean I enjoy it, and there are health benefits to consider as well. (I'm 38, and could be considered a Shetland Clydsdale. My Dad has had a miriad of physical problems, and I know some of them are related to being overweight, so I need to address my own weight or look forward to problems similar to his.)
Very active in Church and since my sons are involved, I've been a willing volunteer for the scouts.
I'm a long time fan of the Andy Griffith show, which of course means Malcom Merriwether is one of my heroes.
That's it. Hope to become familiar with everyone.
