Well Jamie came for my birthday (best gift ever). I want to say thank you to everyone who donated and made my birthday awesome. Tuesday morning Jamie left, much to my dismay and protestation. It was nice to see her and her dad. They really lifted our spirits as well as brought much needed supplies. Like new wheels, more food, and Kahuna stick blades. As you can see in the picture, it was very much needed.
|After months of riding and hundreds of miles it is|
time to retire the grip for the Kahuna stick and
put in a new one (right). The old one
(left) lasted a long long time and took lots of abuse.
We are super impressed with it all.
We have had some amazing roads, huge hills to push up and some exciting hills to ride down. During a break, after a particularly steep hill we had to push up, I started talking to Kenton. "If we weren't doing this for a cause, to help other people, but instead for the adventure's sake, do you think we would have made it this far?" I asked. "No," he said, "we probably would have given up, rented a car, and driven to all the beautiful views and fun hills to ride instead." Its true. What really helps us to keep going is knowing the good that is being done because of it.

People are awesome, and we have such capacity for good.
