Walt Hates The Trike Wheels!!

So picturesque! by AGreatEuropeTripPlanner!.

Hey Ya'll,

Well, we finally got the Trike Wheels delivered, and Walt finally got them on the Bike (temporarily of course), he rode it around the block to test them out, and.....said that he hates the way it rides with them, and when they are on the Bike, the Bike is MINE!!!  LOL  And the worst part of it, is that the pieces he had to attach so that we would be able to take the Wheels on and off easily, makes the Bike to where he can't make tight turns, as the attached piece will scrape the ground!!

Today we rode the Bike over (sans Trike Wheels of course) to my SIL'S house in Sacramento, to visit with her oldest son before he goes back to Hawaii.  We haven't seen him in several years, and it was really nice to see him again.  And I noticed a new NSV today.  My riding gloves didn't take an arm and a leg to put them on and take them off!!  So my hands have shrunk down a bit too, not just my fingers!!

So now I am working like crazy to get our road trip figured out, as to stops along the way for resting my Freaking Tailbone(!), and for Food and Fuel.  LOL  Since we will be riding about 300 miles the first day, and 265 miles the second day.

Plus I am hoping to meet some of our Blogging friends on this trip.  I am definitely meeting with Tina (Losing It!) in Portland.  And it looks like we will be meeting Amanda (A Weight Loss Journey) in Eugene.  She has said that she wanted to meet, but I am still waiting to hear from her, so we can lock down specifics on where to meet her!  

I am also hoping to meet with Christine (Magic Cat Purrs) while in Medford (and anyone else from that area that would like to meet).  She may be attending her local Support Group Meeting while we are there, so I am hoping that we can meet for an early Dinner, or for Coffee (Drinks, Soda, whatever) after.  I am still waiting to hear from her regarding this though.

Well, I should go, got lots to do.....and so little time!  Till next time...

Aloha My Friends  :)

Are the trike wheels a pain in the butt to put on and off?
Your trip sounds like it will be a lot of fun! Driving through northern california through the redwoods is going to be gorgeous.

Thanks Christine! I am not sure, but I think the Redwoods are seen on Hwy 101, and we will be driving up I-5. Which is too bad, I remember driving through them as a kid and loved them!

As for the Trike Wheels, Walt says that they are supposed to be an easy trade, on and off. It is only supposed to take about 10 minutes. I think it is taking longer than that right now, but I am sure that eventually, if they are traded off enough, then it will only take about 10 minutes!!


Hay Deb, Looks like I will not be coming to Medford on the 22nd :(. I have a class on Monday the 20 and I was there today too. I wouls have loved to meet you in person. Maybe another time.

lol Trike wheels sound interesting.
Riley caught sight of your blog page and went "Whoa! Is this yours? I told him no.. he said, "Pity, the background page is fantastic." Come to think of it - I agree. Its gorgeous.

Debi said...

Ok, thanks for letting me know Christine!! Maybe some other time.

Debi said...

Wow! LOL that's funny! BTW, Walt loves to read your blog. He feels like he is your friend too! And he is. Thanks about the blog! I love it too. I love the colors. But then, I am partial to Pinks!

Sounds like a great road trip.

Debi said...

Thanks Bonnie! It will be my first long distance trip. The longest I have been on so far, is about 240 miles in one day.
