Blast from the past. I am still here!!

Yep - Tude here. Still bicycling, supplemented with running, and a member of several bicycle forums, but more into the conspiracy sites and I also mod a travelers site (hitchhikers, trainhoppers, squatters, rubber trampers, etc) hehe if you see someone busking (playing music) with a donation cup in front - perhaps with dreds, tats and some piercings - they may be one of my members, hehe. I'm also a couch surfing friendly person for the travelers - have a couple taking a bus to CT then trainhopping down here on their way to NOLA in about a month ... have had many people travel through my place.

Pretty awesome to see the neighbors do a double take as we take some final pics out in front and the last couple - Tashi has blue cropped hair with lots of piercings and Donny Derelict with tons of cool tats and dreads and their two traveling dogs outside - they busk with a washboard and a banjo. Ha. I've met some very cool people through there. One guy, who will be here maybe in the Spring - left home at 20 yrs old and never went back (he was orphaned) and he is now turning 40 so that is 20 years on the road. Anyway I have met some awesome people there.

So lots have changed in my life as well - met the guy I'm still with about 5-6 yrs or more? ago here - Couch Incident, and we had the long distance relationship (gotta love the greyhound from NY to Pittsburgh - ugh) - but he has now been up in NY for a year - after melding two families of animals - 3 cats and a dog. Cool. Couch and Tude Oh and I've done tatted myself up as well - nearly done with left arm sleeve with other big uns on the back and right side. I kinda discovered a great tat guy, Dewey, who gets my inspiration.

I've surfed through here for a few years and have not touched down so I thought I would put a footprint today.

Greetings all!

Oh and the kitten in my avatar - is my 2nd siamese - is now going on 2 yrs old - and he's 17 lbs. Big huge lilac siamese. He totally represents the dog-cat!
