That is a real shame. My prayers are with Josh and his family. It sure was a pleasure to see the country through his eyes.

OMG, not again.

My prayers are with him...

Here in Charlotte...

If I can do ANYTHING to help from here, consider it done. I pm'd Josh at the start of this trip and it still stands; whatever he needs. I'm only minutes from UNCC, know some folks there if he needs any help that way.
Just missed him by a couple days in Iowa, wish we could've met up.
Really hate to hear this after two great days with CJ, another epic traveler.
Prayers and well wishes Josh, we're here bro'.

I have been following his ride and to hear he's hurt is heart breaking for all of us who believe in him and enjoy reading his reports.
