SCOOTIE-POOTIN: My Terra Trike

Friends, Romans and Countrymen give me your eyes and take a gander at my new steed, a Terra Trike. It is the magic carpet that is going to transport me across this beautiful country of our this coming winter.

Several of you have said "show us a picture". Here are the pictures of Walt coming, Walt going and of the Terra Trike. My friend Cindy provided the pictures but I couldn't figure out how to get them from the email to the blog site. Today Mark used a day of his vacation to take me to breakfast and then gave me a half a day's tutoring on how to use the computer. I owe so much to so many. Thanks one and all!

It is only 72 days until I plan to commence my ride from San Diego to Saint Augustine, FL. The strained back cum inflamed siatic nerve has prevented me from riding much during the good weather of October. I went to the doctor today and he feels I should immediately commence therapy to insure that I am ready to ride when the time comes. As he pointed out, I hurt my back in September and we are now well in to November and I'm still having a problem. I'll take his advice. He gave me a flu shot and made an appointment to recheck me two weeks before I depart. He also discussed monitoring my heart and a target max heart beat.

To help me get in shape during this inclement weather Mark has loaned me the equipment necessary to ride the trike inside. That will sure be a big help. I also need to get back down to Cincinnatti so Todd can complete the addition of equipment to the trike. Lots of work yet to be accomplished. I'll get there, the good Lord willing and the krick don't get too high!

A friend in need is a friend indeed. Thanks friends!

God Bless!

Walt,

You really have me looking forward to your trip! I hope you can blog everyday. Some of us have to live vicariously. You look great sitting on the Trike, as if you could just peddle away this very moment. I think it's going to be a wonderful experience for you, as well as the people you come in contact with. You are very inspiring!

God Bless,
Cheryl
