Hello all. A lot of people have asked what we are going to do now. I have hung my bike up and dusted off my running shoes. I am considering running a marathon the fall. 26.2 miles. We have also taken up kayaking. I did some whitewater paddling in college and it is good to get back on the water.

We work for an organization called CrossRoads Ministries - I am the program director and director of the Crossroads High Adventure Program. We have 5 weeks of summer camp and the 2 weeks of canoe camp. After that I will be taking goups on canoeing, rock climbing and rappeling, and hiking trips. Any groups are welcome to join us, e-mail me for pricing.

So, we hit the ground running. It is good to be back home though. I think Texas is very happy to be here and not in the car everyday.

My house - Challenger III Shelby, NC 11 miles

We had a great time at Challenger III. We were blown away by the strong winds , but everyone managed to stay upright!!

It was good to cross the finish line with a crowd there to greet me. The staff at YAP did a great job organinzing the event. Most of the volunteers and their mentorees were able to join us for go-kart rides and miniature golf.

I have not heard how much was raised at the silent auction, but I will update you asap.

Thanks to Mark Brackett, John Paksoy, Stephen Blackwell, and Frank Hannah for joining me on the ride to Challenger III. I felt bad for them because they had to turn around and ride back upwind.

If you have had a chance to look at the latest pictures on the web-site, and you happened to think that Rhonda is impregnated, you are wrong.!!!!

It is an optical illusion created by the horrendous wind that tormented us for the whole trip.

Tomorrow, the Youth Assistance Program is throwing a welcome home party at Challenger III on Hwy 180. All are invited. I will be riding my bicycle across the finish line at 6 pm. See you there!!!
