Hello again again
* I forgot to share a few things. The morning when we left De Smet, I met a guy outside the motel who had a car flat. He was in the process of riding across the country for MS. I forgot to share the story because of the mechanical problems, sorry. His name is Gabriel Redding. He is a musician and a real nice guy. He gave me a couple of CD's but I have not listened to them yet. You can check him out on facebook I think??? Just wanted to make sure I said hello to him and his business manager. Good luck the rest of the way!!!!!
* Met a guy names Scott outside of Spencer or Stuart?? He works for Goodyear. Great guy and we had a great conversation. It's nice to have so many interactions with kind hearted people. Take care Scott and thanks for the encouragement.
* Today I went into Knoxville to try and log on but the library doesn't open there until 10:00. So as I was leaving I pulled into a little store and grabbed a Powerade. The guy working asked me about what I was doing? As I was walking out he stopped me and gave me a 20 dollar bill. He said, " Here take this, your nuts, this is the least I can do, good luck!" I laughed and told him thanks. It was a kind act that wouldn't have happened if I wouldn't have went through that town. Kinda cool. So, that's $60.00 from just three people on this trip, that I never expected!
* Al Lamier. Al is a long time friend of everyone at the Cyclery and Fitness in E-Ville. He let me use his B.O.B. trailer for this journey. I never said thanks? Al, thank you. The trailer has been working great. I'll have a little something for you when I return it next week! Thanks man!
*** Sunday, August 2nd, 3:00p.m. I will be riding into my driveway. If you want to stop by and meet me as I get there, that would be great. If you can't make it, not a problem. My wife is inviting anyone who wants to come. You can contact her or Robin Zarzecki. Or you can just head towards 9206 Launius Dr. by 3:00. I will be there between 3:00 and 3:15.
Thanks everyone, it's off to Moravia. Tomorrow I'll be in Novinger, Missouri. More post soon!
