Milestones


The new car... to us
It's going to be interesting being "Free"!

We all have milestones in our life and as of late, Kera and I have hit a few of them.

First…the fives….

Five years of marriage
Five years in Germany
Almost five months since my accident

3 years without a car (should have our “new” one tomorrow evening). See above for what we are getting. We tried doing it for as long as we were able. We’ve used public transport (trains & buses) combined with rental cars and car sharing to make up for not having an auto. We’ve finally decided that we’ve done enough of the train thing for now. It’s just that we would like to be more spontaneous and go where we want to go for once. It’ll make hiking and cycling trips much easier, especially since it’s got room for our gear and with the back seats flipped up, room for at least 2 bikes if not more. We’ll, eventually, get a rear rack for it and a roof box to fully outfit it for various activities.

New milestones…. well, Kera and me soon, has Permanent Residency in Germany.

Also… I’ve got a new bike that I’m really enjoying. It’s an Independent Fabrications Ti Deluxe 29’er. You can see a photo of it below. Hopefully, I can order my other bike soon. It’ll be a Retrotec Triple 29’er.

Here's the new ride

What does one say here. Hmmm. First, I'm a "trailing spouse". Kera, my wife, works hard and keeps us afloat. I work... not nearly as hard and contribute enough to let us have fun. Oh, I also make bags for bikepacking under the name of SpoK Werks http://www.spokwerks.com I'm an English Teacher (English as a Second Language) here in Germany. It's an amazingly rewarding thing to do. I'd never have believed it until I'd tried it. I also make bikepacking bags under the name SpoK Bags. Just search for us in Flickr. We're adventure nuts (i.e. cycling, travel, life, friends, etc.). We attempt to live each day as fully as we can manage.
