Hi from Virginia Beach, VA

Hello all!
I'm a 42yo Chief in the Navy. We just returned from an 8 month deployment and I'm in the process of upgrading to a new mountain bike... Time to put ol' Sugar out to pasture. I've seen alot of trail miles in the Newport News/Williamsburg area and in Pensacola but it's been tough to find the time since we moved back here in late 2005. Looking forward to many more miles on the new wheels... Browsing through the forums shows a lot of useful info that I could have used before when doing upgrades so I wish I had happened across this board sooner... I'm sure you guys will be a lot of help in the future! See ya 'round!

Ken

Hello Ken, I probably shouldn't ask what ship, should I? Let's just leave it at thanks for being in the service .

What new wheels did you get? Check out the regional forums for most VA folks.

Welcome to BF!

Hey East Hill!

No problem... I'm on the USS Eisenhower. Just don't ask when we'll be at sea... My new bike is a Trek Fuel EX8. In fact, I just picked it up yesterday... Looking forward to getting it dirty as soon as I can get up to the trails around Williamsburg/Newport News. Thanks for the welcome!

Hehehe, I work for the USPS and work in a section which is privy to ship's movements. But I'll never divulge military secrets, even if we are sometimes the last ones to know !

Enjoy the dirt, I actually look forward to the rain just so I can get muddier. Naturally, it doesn't take long for it to get around to raining in Puget Sound...
