Transportation ~ 2016 Ford Transit Connect LWB XLT, Ordered, 02/01

A hope fulfilled…

Ford Transit Connect XLT Photo2.pngI am on schedule. My target was 1st Quarter 2016. Hey it has been since September 01, 2015 when my Ford Windstar died after 17 years. Now, I have approximately 5 months to wait for delivery–that’s JULY! That will require lots more walking & biking, and some dependence on others.

Thanks to Olivia for her help.

Thanks to Mario Blackwell & especially Jermaine Reed, both of Crown Ford of Fayetteville, North Carolina, for placing the order today for my replacement van.

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…

Waterway ~ Cross Creek, Fayetteville, North Carolina, 11/17

This is a part of what one will see as they walk within Cross Creek Linear Park. One can walk along the creek from Festival Park to the Cape Fear Botanical Gardens at the Cape Fear River and eventually on to  the Jordan Soccer Complex at Methodist University using the Cape Fear Trail. [Related Article–Cross Creek Park]  [Flickr Album for 2014 Cross Creek]
