Today I dragged out all my gear and packed up for the ride that begins Tuesday. Here's my vest with patches of all flags of the states that I've visited since I started doing these rides. They represent all but eleven of the lower forty eight and over 10,000 miles in the saddle. The more important thing is the people I've met along the way. All have been supportive of my mission and some have revealed to me that they were having issues in their lives and that my message had given them comfort. That's what we are supposed to do, right? Everyone, especially these days needs comfort and encouragement. I hope to help someone along my way this trip to gain maybe just a little bit of peace. I hope you will follow me on this ride and share my stories and pictures. God bless all y'all.
