Of Jeep, Bikes, and Tykes...

If I could finally shake this week-old respiratory virus, I believe that I would have Spring fever at full-tilt. The weather (rain and t-storms not withstanding) has been absolutely gorgeous lately. I thought seriously about changing the top on CHI-J for the Safari Bikini top -- but prudence would not let me (it's not fun getting wet riding to Church or work). But soon, very soon... you will see CHI-J sporting around town with the Safari top!

I finished adding the off-road lights a few weekends ago. Looks sharp. I still plan to add one light on the rear of the roof-rack for illumination while backing in unfamiliar territory.

Next on the Jeep list is: new tires (that's a whole story - one for a later time); Raingler cargo nets; overhead console for CB radio; rear tow hitch/receiver; tow hooks; and finally 2-inch suspension lift! Plenty to keep me busy for the summer.

Diane and I have made a pact about walking daily. I even bought us pedometers to count our steps. Our goal is 10,000 steps/day. Honestly, we are not averaging that amount yet -- hopefully we will increase up to that amount as we get over our colds!

I also plan to break the Mountain Bike out for service this Spring and Summer! Looks like it will need a tune up from Bike Shop - Having trouble shifting into last gear. Any of you game for some off-road biking (maybe at Swayback Bridge Trail)??? What about you Doobie, Crittle, or Ade???

And speaking of Tykes... there were quite a few at Church Sunday. It is a wonderful site to behold! I praise and thank GOD for the growth at Crestview. May we all be passionate in our pursuit of HIM.
