Tomorrow (01/16/16) we’re going back across the river to Beaufort with some friends.

Our plans are to stop at the bicycle shop and afterward we will go to No Name Pizza for lunch.

The wife wants a set of lights for her bike and I want to speak with the owner about new AND BIGGER tires for my Rocker!

Went across the river (short ferry ride) with Mr. & Mrs. Billy D yesterday.

The women went shopping at Belk’s while Billy & I visited Hobby Lobby.

Then we went to a mexican restaurant and had a fabulous lunch (I’m all about lunch)!

Stopped at Walmart on the way home and they had TWO of the single speed fat bikes. After looking at them I’m so glad I didn’t buy a Malace!

Update… Today (01/02/2016) I finally got my new fat bike!

My wife & I visited the bicycle shop on December 26th. I told the dealer I would take the bike but I wanted a rack. Installing the rack required a new kickstand so a new kickstand was ordered…

We finally got a chance to visit the shop today and bring the bike home!

Upon returning to Oriental I unloaded the bike while my wife made a quick lunch. We ate and then went for a ride around the village.

I was amazed at all the looks my bike got. Several people complimented the bike and one lady said she was thinking about making me an offer on it!

The bike is sitting in our dining room right now… The wife was concerned about someone stealing it.


Merry Christmas from warm & wonderful Oriental, NC!

Wife & I enjoyed the traditional Christmas dinner (lunch), then went for a bicycle ride around the village. We were amazed; Oriental seems like a ghost town today!

Tomorrow we are hoping to visit a bicycle shop in Beaufort. I have a great desire to try a fat bike and they have a couple!
