New Start Date
After much delay, I believe that Spirit is ready to let me set off on my upcoming Bike Around America tour. My delays have run the gammut from gear to weather, but now I think everything is finally coming together. My current plan is to set out on the Southern Tier route starting January 2nd. This will allow me to ring in the New Years with family and friends while also allowing the much needed change in the Jetstream to take place this weekend, bringing some welcome warm air to the south.
There are a couple of days left in 2010, so please, please, take a moment and make a donation to the fight against Childhood Obesity. The donation is completely tax deductible and allows you to help make a difference. I have said it before, but it is worth noting again. This is an Epidemic and it will have profound affects on all of us. The estimates of projected health care related expenses are staggering and as we are all well aware of, these costs are born by the population at large. So if you are thinking that this fight is not something that you need be concerned with, well, you are just plain wrong. While I know how bad the issue is in America, it is equally clear that this is a Global fight for children all around the world. This is a problem that is not just simply going to go away. It requires change to occur on a multitude of levels and these changes can't take place without your support and your voice.
Please, take a moment, follow the Give Now link and share $10 to help a worthwile charity.
