hey guys, not sure if any of you guys are church going folk, but i am taking part in this bicycle ride called Sea To Sea ( details here-> www.seatosea.org ) (the leg from iowa city to grand rapids) to try to raise awareness and funds in support of those living in poverty around the world... i already have raised $1000, but i am supposed to try and raise at least $2500... i dont see a single dime of the money, i am doing for the sheer enjoyment of doing a long haul ride, whilst trying to raise awareness on the growing rate of poverty in not only our country, but also the world.

if you guys could spare some funds, and donate,i would greatly appreciate it, no matter what you give, big or small, will all go towards a great cause! you can donate quickly and easily here-> www.tinyurl.com/bogieboy01

and thank you in advance to anyone that does donate!!!

i also have a blog running about training updates and rides and so forth at http://bogieboy01.wordpress.com/ if anyone is interested in keeping tabs on my training and the actual trip the last week of July...

Good job avoiding the worst of it. And a good lesson for the rest of us--caution pays dividends even though it can be mean on luggage and essential parts. Good luck getting it all sorted out. I hope you don't have to pay for any of it yourself. Ride safely, all!

Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me! I want people to know "why" I look this way.
I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

I got stuck at the house yesterday and didn't get the chance to make the Moonshine Run. But got out and hit Redbird and put 30 miles of trails in. Now I'm feeling it and won't be able to move in the morning. Sucks to be fat and old.

Darn kevin glad your ok. We tried to stop by BearHardware at 5:15pm but apparently you guys close by then. Went to Tennessee for the weekend for a truck show but of course rode more than we looked at trucks. Hit a hwy 70 near Morristown,t
Tn that went into Virginia. Was a hilly mess of twisties. I was definantly aroused. O the way home tried to take back roads entire way. We did opt fod about 50mikes of highway to get through Louisville though. When we got into Indiana we took 150 i think it was north and took a section from the hnf ride. I wish I could remember what town it is but I definantly cleared the railroad tracks and turned around to watch adam case them. Its times like that I dont have my gopro on. Oh well. Here are some trip pics.
