First Day Out

My wife, whether she knows it or not, really keeps me going sometimes.

Today when she got home from the gym, she was surprised that I hadn't put the tires on The Tick yet, considering it was just past 60deg and dry.  I had thought about it, but kind of kept putting it off, as I've had the last couple days off work and was just enjoying not having to do anything (even if I would have enjoyed it).

That said, thanks to the air tank she got me for my birthday last year, I got the job done in about 40min and we were on our way.

The Tick is back on the road!!!!!!

Winterized 003
This has been The Tick's spot since the middle of November...
I probably should have turned it on a couple times, but I just let the poor guy sit while I was working out this winter.  Guess you could say priorities changed. 
After 3+ hours on the charger last night, I put the battery back in and attempted to fire it up...and it caught on the first try!
