    So will we see a snowboard strapped to your Phatrike in the near future?

  2. You’re more likely to see a pair of snowshoes strapped on board if I find my way into the high country. Snowboards are great for going downhill, but exploring the backcountry during winter means flat and uphill ground also, where snowboards would be kind of useless I suspect. Snowshoeing is great exercise when the white stuff is really deep!

    Well I hope you have a great time when you decide to strap them snow shoes to your FFT…! Personally I’m not a snow person, but from the accompanying video it looks to be fun, but you couldn’t catch me dead in the snow, or maybe that’s the only way you could get me into the snow, is dead…! Lmao…! I am a lot more comfortable in the sand, you could find me down at the beach almost all the time when I lived on the island… But now that I live inland, I’m more on the old grove trails, with the Fat Cat Custom Quad, rounding the berms or just hitting the trials till the sun near reaches the tree tops…. I miss the beach, and I go there from time to time, but it not the same as when I lived on the island, and I’m thinking of moving back out there so I can be where I love to be the most… May be one of those little homes that we see on TV now, as I don’t need more, except maybe another dog, like my beloved Otto may his soul rest in peace…! But that’s way down the road yet maybe…
    Well Steve I wish you, and all our fellow recumbent riders all A Merry Christmas,
    and A Happy New Year….! And may we all have a new year of many miles, all filled with smiles, and memories of happy trails, and stories of our conquests, to share in 2016…!
