Riding bicycle and climbing mountains to meet and interview fellow survivors!
Sharing our stories to give hope and inspire others.
I have wanted to be back on the road a week ago for the last 35 weeks. Being on the road makes me feel alive and helps me forget about the details and the pain. Riding my bike controls my pain. I have planed a dozen rides and tried time and time again to make something work. Riding my bike is the only time that I'm relatively pain free and this is the first time since having cancer back in 1992 that I have been healthy enough to do something of this magnitude. I plan to take it easy so it really is something anyone could do. I sure hope I can talk some of you into joining me for a leg.
I boxed my bike on Wednesday so I could ship it on Thursday and have it waiting for me, to save money I have to break the bike box down to 36 inches. This should be no problem. I ended up just paying the Airlines $75 to ship it along with a bunch of my gear.
I took my daughter and her friends bowling. It was out going away party night with friends from her old school. On the way home one kid said it was the third best day of her life and that being born was one of the three. It was a good time and I'm glad we got to spend the night together. We were going to spend the whole weekend together, but her auntie needed them home. I can't wait to see her again. Maybe Eva and mom will join me on the ride soon.
I got all my food packed. I'm way over loaded so I'm going to try shipping some of my food ahead of me to post offices along my route.
At the airport. Got a pat-down because of my implants, but no cavity search.
Who knows what mountain this is?
Making new friends and getting into interview mode
Well I missed my original flight. I don't think TSA would have had enough time to search all my bags anyways. I had a few dozen Ziploc baggies filled with white powers like gravy mix and spices. Poor guys must have had to test every bag.
Traveling by plane with all that weight killed my body. I think I will rest here for a few days until I'm well and rested and my pain levels level out.
