I try to use this blog to record something about my life everyday.

Chris gave me a Bicycle

I spent the evening working with an old bicycle that Chris Wilson gave me. I guess he felt sorry for me. I'm always talking about needing a bicycle to find geocache sites that are located along bicycle trails.

The bicycle had a flat on the front tire. Chris even gave me a patch kit. I went to the store and bought a $10 tire pump. I quickly found a thorn in the tire and fixed it.

I took it for a spin down the Indian Trail for about 3.5 miles. It normally would have taken me a little over an hour to walk that distance. I was able to do it with the bicycle in about 20 minutes and I was taking my time.

Thank You Chris. Looks like I'm ready to go caching on a bicycle.

Then I wondered how I could mount my GPS to the handle bar. A Ram Mount would cost about $30. Somehow that just didn't seem right to pay $30 for a mount on a free bicycle. I went to work with spare parts and some plywood I had on hand. Here's what I came up with.
