I think it's time I revive this blog. It's been awhile since I've posted and obviously lots has been going on since my last post, too much even. Because my life has been up in the air, I've been avoiding documenting it on the web. I think I'm going to abandon the Tree Squirrels blog and either revive it here or create an new blog describing my new conquests as a single dad exploring all new avenues of life that I hadn't thought I'd ever have to deal with.
Either way, keeping with the current theme of this blog, this year has been a slow riding year. My foci have been elsewhere and though I long to put on some major mileage, the oportunities have not presented themselves. Life is hectic and busy and I've been lucky to just ride my bike to work on occassion. However, with the avent of Spring upon me now (yes, I did say avent of spring. I do live in Montana), I have high hopes to get back on the bike and putting on some mileage. And hopefully I'll be able to do so with a few more companions!

I'm also excited for the possibility of riding with Tara, my 9 year old. She just asked for a new bike for her birthday and I opted to go for the real deal with an 18 speed Trayl bike from Sport's Authority. Not the top of the line by any means but a big step up from the Target brand bike she was riding. This is a 24" bike too so it should last her awhile. I hope she's as excited for it as I am.
I am excited to be back in the blogosphere and hopefully can keep this up a little better than I have been recently.
