Just found some interesting things while reading my morning blogs.
Gin and Syl posted a link to an “E-Bike” kit. An E-bike is an electric bike. I can just hear some people thinking how lazy you must be to have an electric bike. We got ours a few years ago and we found that we actually got much more exercise than with our regular bikes. We traveled further, and went more places because we knew we could always get back if we got too tired. We worked on peddling more and using electric power less, and found our endurance steadily improved.
Here is the link they posted for getting a kit to retro-fit your bicycle. It’s still not cheap, but cheaper than buying an E-Bike. We got ours a few years ago for under $300 each. We got a really good deal. They are a lot more expensive now it appears. Unfortunately we haven’t ridden them much since we’ve been living in Georgia. There is no good, safe place to ride and we haven’t taken them camping with us lately because the batteries needed replacing. We replaced a few weeks ago, so they’re ready to go. I’m not sure if we’ll take them on our next trip since it’s going to just be a short trip. We’ll see.
Margie wrote about an article she read where a lady fell out of her motor home while traveling on Interstate 10. Ouch! She was severely injured, but not dead.
Some Tampa friends of ours had something similar happen to his Mother. She got up (like we all do) to go to the bathroom, or grab a cold drink) and fell into the stairwell. She didn’t fall out of the motor home, but was hurt pretty badly. I have tried to be extra careful and always think about her when I get up. I try to stay seated and belted in as much as I can. It seems most of my excursions involve a cat who has thrown up in her cage! We seem to have a little car sickness going on :)
I think we have pretty much decided that we are going to take a short camping trip this weekend. That is if the weather holds up. We have had no rain for weeks and weeks, but now it’s looking like some storms are heading our way. Doesn’t it figure?
