Transportation ~ 2016 Ford Transit Connect XLT, 1st Quarter 2016, 01/01

Let’s hope…

My 1998 Ford Windstar Cargo Van died September 1, 2015. I have been without personal transportation since then. It has been tough! As I pay off the debt for new heating and air conditioning [3 months early based on my TIME Magazine Cover Photograph],  I hope I can buy my last vehicle sometime before the end of March 2016.

I’ll even be able to drive to Utah to pick up Fargomy quadracycle.

The Transit Connect is a cargo van [as was the Windstar] which works best for my cycling and work around home. I’ll even be able to drive to Utah to pick up Fargomy quadricycle. I shipped it back to Utah Trikes following a breakdown in Connecticut during a tour that was to go from Maine to Florida–that’s another story…

Anyway, it will be GREAT to have my own transportation again. I appreciate Olivia’s help and the use of her SUV, from time-to-time, as well as help from other friends–Steve, Ellen, Michael, & Pauline.

We hope for a change soon. I need to get back to the gym and do so many other things…

I just happened to have a perfect-fit [28.5″x72″] piece of Lexan under the house. It remains from Fargo I. BTW, Fargo II is still at Utah Trikes.

Fargo II ~ The new graphic [by Andie Styner]

Fargo has arrived in Payson, 04/25

A week ago, I shipped the remainder of my Fargo parts to Ashley Guy at Utah Trikes. Soon, I hope to share the transition of this quad into Fargo II. I know it will be exciting to see what Ashley will do the his first touring quadricycle.

Fargo II ~ The dawn of a new era, soon to begin…

The time has finally come for the remaining parts of Fargo to head west to Payson, Utah–Utah Trikes, and the innovation of Ashley Guy.

I shipped the failed rear-end almost 2 years ago–07/02.

Ashley will soon transform Fargo into Fargo II.

I plan to go to Payson to pick it up and drive it back to North Carolina. I guess it would be interesting to ride it back. That, I’ll have to think about.

I know many of you are interested in what is to become of this quad. Please stay tuned…

Fargo ~ Cleaned and ready to be shipped to Utah Trikes, 04/14

I now await an appointment at a Greensboro, North Carolina Bicycle Shop for my bicycle mechanic to pack it for me. He relocated from Fayetteville to Greensboro. I trust him and know he will do it right.

Added: I shipped yesterday. I decided it is more important to get Fargo to Ashley. I said I’d ship mid April. I try to be a person of my word. –jim
