I'm home again.
We are back from the lake and in true family tradition, the thunderstormes hit just as we got in the lake, and the plumbing to the kitchen sink developed a leak, DD came Tuesday morning and her front tire was just about flat (nail in the siedwall) so had to get that fixed. Just can't have a trip without something going wrong. We did attract quite a following as we rode, DH and me on the tandem with DGS in the trailor behind. DD came and Tuesday and spent the night. She brought him home this morning. After she got there DH and I got to ride without the trailer and managed to get up to 6 miles at at time and rode 4 times. The new seat is wonderful! DH rides in the front, all I have to do is keep my balance and pedal (or not) and have fun. It is nice having an experienced rider in the front to pull up the hills. We managed quite nicely as long as he remembered to let me know when he was going to coast and when to pedal. I'm not planning any long rides for now, but I must say it was fun.
