    Today I went over to cut with Dennis and fill my trailer. It was amazing outside today the sun was up and we where in a perfect wind block spot. I wish I had thought to take a shot it was not at all like March in Michigan on a normal basis and I am glad. Thanks Dennis for the wood! Then this afternoon on my way home I drove past a road crew cut up section that was mostly box elder from the look of it. I asked the owner if I could have some wood and he said take it all get that sh!t out of my yard and slammed the door :lol: So I said thanks to the door and filled my little truck right up to the top :exclaim: If by chance the gentleman that gave me the wood is reading this thank you for the wood.

    Thanks zap! It was a very good day though I fear Dennis wore himself out today and I am having a hard time walking tonight with my knee being bad. It was worth it to get out and enjoy the outdoors though I think we hit 60F today.

    You are welcome Pete.

    What Pete didn't say was that Dennis really was not worn out but Dennis was hurting super bad. The back just hurt so much that I couldn't do much so I mostly sat and watched Pete do the work. And if you think yesterday was nice.... Wow is about the best thing to say for today. It is 64 now. A bit breezy but nice. I also got in my first bike ride of the year.

    Hey Dennis, just a quick question does the bike help or hurt your back any? I have had back problems for 5-6 years and was thinking maybe something like that might help.

    Gary, when I still had a regular road bike it did hurt the back. Not so with the recumbent bike. Some seats though do not fit me very good and those do hurt the back. But the nice part is the angle of the seat is adjustable. New riders tend to be more upright but as you get more accustomed to riding then most lay it down a bit more.

    Perhaps the easiest one on the back is the recurve seat that Bacchetta has. I have one on a Giro26 but on the CA-2 (the blue bike) had a hard shell carbon seat. They also make a euromesh seat and that one just makes my back hurt.

    Btw, there are a few tricks to learning how to ride this type of bike and if you decide to get one, let me know and I can give you a few pointers. Better yet, come on over and we can go for a ride together.
