Joe and James, it was a pleasure meeting you. I am glad you enjoyed your stay in the park in Raywick. I wish we had had more time to break bread and talk. I will spread the word around about your mission and charities, sending links to all my friends and hopefully help you fulfill your goal.

Wow it is Hot here in Garden City Kansas. Good luck on the miles to come. I hope the yellow handle bar tape will make it slightly better. Seriously will be awake tonight if you need a red van taxi. Call me with that number I gave you James. Best of luck you two!!
