Back in the saddle, now in Redmond WA

Besides trying to figure out which forum to post in, do I have to change my alias now that I've moved?

Sidelined with a little problem over Christmas that looked like my riding days were over. Then in the Spring moved and settled in the great Pacific Northwest. But in late August flew back to NC and rode back out, so got one half of the annual x-country ride in. Following the advice of well meaning friends, only made 475 miles the first day back on the bike and took a leisurely five days to get to Redmond. Life is fairly hectic and have only made a couple of local scouting rides in the area, but am sure glad to be riding again and looking forward to exploring this area.

Joel,

It's very good to hear from you. It's been awhile since I've read a post from you. It sounds like things are looking up. Best wishes for good things to come your way.

Not unless you wish to. I moved from Juneau down to Portland area in 2003, but decided it was not worthwhile to change my Web Name: AlaskaFish, since it is what I would really like to be doing if I can't be riding anyway!

Welcome to the great Pacific Nor Wet!
