I'm back...

Hi all. I have been away for almost a year and a half. I have been off the bike for the entire time while nursing my wife through her cancer treatments and eventually through hospice. Ready to get back to some good rides and drop the 40+ pounds that I put back on. Wish me luck and good to be back.
