Now Introducing the RustyPelican

Hello all, I am re-invented Bike rider. Since the Navy sez that I am Fat and need to loose weight, and I have cartiledge issues with my knees, and they don't want to operate until I loose some weight. I picked is a bike for the first time in 10 years, and I wish that my dad had never sold my bianchi when I was in boot camp, I would be better to ride up the side of a mountain that work calls home than my hardtail mountain bike.

I have fell back into love with biking...Even though we were receiving 10 inches of rain in 2 hours I was out doing maintenance and hoping that it would stop raining so I could try out my new saddle.

I am married with 3 kids 2g 1b, and currently stationed in Pearl Harbor, but transferrring to San Diego in May.

You may want to hook up with William Karsten (a member here). I think he is Navy and in SD too.
William? Oh William...

I was stationed there before Hawaii, and I did love it for trail and road running, so I've got an idea as to what is available for outdoor activity.

Also I'm looking for a ride partner for the time that I am still here in Hono.

I'd give you the name and number of a good buddy of mine, but he's ARMY, and you probably wouldn't get along. j/k.

a2psyklnut,
Hey I work at a joint command, so I can speak, marine, soldier, and chair force. Any buddy will do. We are all on the same team in the end.
