When our sons, David and Chris, were growing up we spent our summer vacations visiting our parents’ summer homes in Mystic, CT and Tuckernuck Island, MA. After our sons grew up and our parents sold their summer homes, we moved on to a new chapter in our vacation adventures. We bought a recumbent tandem bicycle and rode from Brooktondale to Nantucket via a visit to Tim’s mother in New Britain, Connecticut. I think our first trip was in 1994.
In 2001 we sold our recumbent tandem bicycle, bought an Organic Engines recumbent tandem tricycle – AKA The Triclops (http://www.organicengines.com/) – and continued our trips to New England.
After our parents passed away we changed our destination to Block Island, off the coast of Rhode Island.
Tim sent messages home from our early trips via his Palm Pilot. Later I wanted to add photographs to the reports and technology had advanced enough to make this possible. Here is a link to trips we took from 2003 – 2007)
After three years of thinking we didn’t want to make this trip via tricycle anymore, we have decided to try it again. And so the adventure begins.
