Continental Divide Charity Bicycle Ride-Follow up.
First off, we want to thank all of you who have followed our journey and experienced with
us the wildness and beauty of our great country. Your encouragement and support has been amazing and vitally important to our effort.
I do not regret for one second our journey even considering my broken leg. We hope this encourages you to do something difficult, what seems impossible and lets you develop the strength within you. As you can see from our efforts, ordinary people can do the extraordinary.
My leg is broken across the bone where it goes at a right angle into my hip. I had surgery this morning. They put two rods and a screw into my bone. I am collecting quite a collection of metal parts in me. I should recover completely in a 3-4 months. I will be discharged from the hospital probably on Saturday and then David will drive me to Salt Lake City for a flight home. Once I recover, I will back at it(sorry Kenny). At some time in the future, David and I will complete our continental divide journey.
We had a difficult time during our journey and I have a broken leg, but we always knew the difficulty would end, and I know I will recover. The people suffering with mental illness or veterans hurt, injured or killed and their families do not have such a luxury. Their journey continues on into the indefinite future. I encourage you to give to our great charities.
David and I would like to continue this blog with not only our efforts, but with your efforts as well. If you want to share your experience and get the support of The extraordinary people who are our friends, please let us know. If you would like to unsubscribe the our blog, just let me know.
Lastly, this country is full of outstanding people. Every time, and I mean every time, we needed help somebody was there ready and willing to help. God Bless America.
