We are really zeroing in on the big day. June first is fast approaching.
The last few days have kept us busy. I made the trip back to Kansas City after spending a few days up north. Josiah just left to go back home to Phoenix. But whats a vacation without grant writing and proposal letters?
I've been talking to my friend JJ Kelly of DudesOnMedia.com. He's one of the two geniuses that created the documentaries, “Peddle to the Midnight Sun” and “Paddle to Seattle”.
He has been a huge help throughout this process. Check out his work, it's great stuff.
Today, the news release should appear in the Leon Journal Reporter- my hometown newspaper. If you're visiting here because of the good 'ol LJR.... welcome- it's good to see you!
A huge thank you to all the donors. Thanks for believing in adventure, charity and Josiah and I. We couldn't do this without your help. The donors club- its a good place to be.
A special shout out to Hamish- my aussie buddy. Thanks for the help old friend.
Now for something you'll really like:
The other day I was in the gym bicycling like a hamster wheel. Conversation started up between a fellow rider and myself. We talked about past adventures, where he had been, what he had done. Soon, our adventure came up and his face showed some strong opinions.
“Don't do it man, people don't deserve it.”
I couldn't disagree more. Now especially, people need something... kindness... time... faith.
I politely point out why I don't agree and ask where those feelings came from. He couldn't put his finger on it until he blurted out, “because I don't think we're supposed to believe they do.”
But thats why we're going.
We have to believe that people deserve some trust.
Thanks again for all the continued support!
