The membership listing shows his last login being May 15, so I'm thinking he's still around, just laying low.

Okay, okay, I'm still alive. People have been bugging me, so here's an update.

I am back in school for the umpteenth semester (I should finally graduate in December). Right now I am studying my ass off for the medical school admissions test in the middle of June, then I will apply to med school for the 2011-12 school year.

So whether I get into med school or not (I figure my odds are a coin-flip at best), I will be out of useful things to do with my time from at least December 2010 - August 2011. Obviously I know exactly what I WANT to be doing with that time, but I am focusing on one thing at a time right now.

I still don't have a bike, and still want some sort of hack very badly. I am actively looking for a cheap (relatively new) Ural, or some sort of rugged type of 3 wheeler. Hopefully I will be able to find one reasonably soon, which is half the reason why I log back on here every once in a while.

Anywho... if I can track down a rideable hack and mod it up to carry me and all the baggage I have to carry around nowadays, I will be back on here much more often.

I used to log on more, but I just haven't been able to do it the past 18 months or so. It's super frustrating to read about other people doing rides that I want to do, and not being able to at least go for a spin on the weekend.

Oh well, I will try and keep you guys updated a little more often, seeing as how my last post was almost a year ago. One day (hopefully soon) I will be back in the saddle.

That's the spirit Funk!

Med school, eh? Talk about a glutton for punishment!

As for the hack - you never know what might turn up - in place this big there's bound to be something out there. I hope you find something suitable soon.

Thanks for the update. I missed it, but was just digging around to see what you'd been up to. I'll keep my eyes open for a hack.

Well I will give you guys a quick update.

Just got accepted to medical school, so the pressure of that whole application process is off.

Now I am looking for some kinda cheap sidehack-type of ride to head back out on the road. If you got eyes on one reasonably close to NC, shoot me a message. I got at least 8 free months to kill...

Congrats on getting into med school! I hope you can find a hack to suit your needs in the meantime.
