So this didn't exactly happen on Christmas, but it was close. Once again I am blown away again by the tremendous support I've received from the motorcycling community. A fellow inmate noticed I'd had computer problems a while back--and also probably noticed that my laptop is anything but small or light (or reliable). Here was his message to me:

"I have a Macbook Air that I would be more than willing to donate to the trip. Don't want anything for it, nor would I take anything. It is a perfect computer for what you are doing...."

I am still blown away, as I hope you all are. Pay-it-forward-type generosity isn't just the stuff of fiction and film.



I've said it before, but I will say it again--six months ago I had what I thought was a very realistic view of humans: that most (nearly all?) people were were selfish, manipulative, unethical and hypocritical (all while having a good conscience none-the-less). Though I'm totally stoked to have received such an elegant, powerful and sleek MacBook Air (wow this thing would have saved 20% of the weight I have been carrying and about that much space, too!), I'm most grateful to have found like-minded souls who give and ask nothing in return; people who, in essence, fight for truth and justice in their every day lives wielding nothing more than a code of behavior. It's everyone on this forum, everyone I've met or corresponded with or been fortunate enough to share a sandwich or a Hendricks with who have completely overwritten my estimation of humanity. Merry Christmas to all of you, sincerely, from the bottom of my cold (but getting much warmer) AntiHero heart.
