What an awesome looking piece of kit. Is that what rhubarb is getting?

The new DF looks fabulous. Can't wait to see it in March.

Comment by JamesD yesterday

Probably have to do something about that, too. :)

The seat looks like you feel like you're sitting on a piece of wood after a while. :-)

... there's been repeated requests for a recumbent.

... And so it has started in earnest.

Comment by JamesD yesterday

Well, after visiting Pushies Galore with the son and heir, and him having to be peeled forcibly off Doc's green machine, there's been repeated requests for a recumbent.  As a little project recently I've resurrected the home built prototype I put together years ago and today was the first attempt at riding.

So after a few rolls down the gentler portion of the driveway and a few single pedals, he managed a complete circuit of the cul de sac (?) without crashing.

Now it looks like I need to find some short cranks, modify the handle bars, brakes that will stop, and probably even make a decent frame.....

I was on skype with Audrey last night, and told her of your suggestion Doc. She thought it was way cool, and funny.

Doc, you're too late, the hockey players already call me that. Forever more.......Audrey's Dad.

Now that your daughter is more famous than you, your fate is sealed Peter - you may as well call your RV "Audrey's Dad" because now, whenever someone sees you riding around in it, they're going to point and say to their kids

"Look over there kids, it's Audrey's Dad"

Not bad Mary, but a bit of a mouthful, and I think the Lorax is male. I'm sure my RV will be too pretty to have a male name ;-)
