Day 1

Setting off on a 6-8 week bike trip requires sacrifice, not by me but family and friends. My wife, Marilyn, has been a constant source of encouragement and has listened patiently to all my crazy ideas... Thank You, Dear! And our kids have been very helpful. As well in making this dream possible... You're all the greatest.
My church family has also supuported me, even though it males no sense to them.
Well, I guess I'll tell my first funny story. I was setting up camp behind a corn crib and couldn't find the tent pole. Finally, I called Marilyn, in desperation, to see if she could locate them. She scurried from room, but no poles. What to do? To my great relief, they mysteriously appeared underneath the tent. Thank you, Lord!
Much more to say, but for now, good night.


  1. Glad things are going well. I have no doubt you will arrive there as planned. You have so much grit and courage. I am proud of you!
