New car, new computer, new me

Well I finally got a home computer. I'm loving it.

I also traded my Madza 6 in for a Ford Escape!!! I loved my Madza but it just wasn't bike friendly. I needed to have a vehicle that I could travel with my bikes in it. Found out yesterday that it will fit at least two bikes, 3 people, 2 dogs and luggage pretty comfortably I'm impressed to say the least.

Its a 2006, silver 4wdr and I have a feeling I'm going to love having it. My best girl friend has one which is 3 years older then mine and loves her's.

So its all coming together

Thanks Pheard. Today I'm recovering from a 120mile road ride (Triple By-Pass). This was what I was training for all year. I'm so happy I finished the ride and now I get to play, play, play. I'm going on a 4-day mountain bikng trip on Thursday to Crested Butte, Colorado. Its known to be some of the best riding in our state!!

Yea I remember you talking about the tri-bipass. So you finished then? Wow that's cool, 120 miles. 2 weeks from now I'm going to MOAB, looks like we're all having some playin' time.

Wow that's great snowy. It's nice to know that you can feel good about yourself because of something YOU do for YOURSELF and not for anyone else. Sometimes we spend so much time trying to please others that we often times put ourselves on the back burner. I really admire you, Snowy. I honestly do.

Yep, it's the peak of summer in the desert. Gunna be over a 100. I hope I don't die.

That ride definitely is an accomplishment Snowy. You should be very pleased with yourself.
