First off I want thank ALL the employees of Synovus. Thank you so much for what you do to support us. Also a big thanks to ALL the employees of The Wade Companies...my sponsor...I have already taken you to Key West and as I sit in upper Michigan, I'm looking forward to taking you to The Arctic Circle.
What a send off, but why July, whew, was it HOT!!! Had a little bike problem...day 1!!! Thanks to my fellow Blue Knights Jerry and Joel they had my back. Today it was not as hot, but wet.
So much has happened since I last wrote. I got to take my grandson Brody, he calls me Paco, to his first race at East Alabama, and his first Braves game. I miss that boy. I've got a video of me teaching him the chop. My son and I saw Metallica before we left. I took Linda to Hawaii, got a little more than we wanted, but I got to ride my buddy Kenny's bike, so in a few days I will have all 50 states. Had a panic attack Wednesday night...had to buy a new iPod....could not do 10,000 miles with no tunes.
To provide perspective, leave Columbus and go to L.A., then back to Columbus. That will be half way to what we are doing. This is not for everyone, but it is a commitment gladly taken. I've got a lot more to share with you. Please come back to the page often. And share your thoughts on the posts from the guys, we feed on your comments, it helps us stay in touch with home. I hope to make you laugh and reflect. I've got a lot to share. Life is not easy.
Today's song of the day...Beast of Burdenby The Rolling Stones...I had to drum that out Thursday night before we left..ask Linda...
