First of all I would like to appoligise to everyone about not having updated my blog in a bit. It has been a busy week and my computer has been acting up. I think i've fixed the problem but it might be the satellite internet thats messing up things.
Things are going very well! Yesterday (saturday) we biked up two mountains... it was a good climb. I'm pretty wiped but am thrilled I made it. I never knew the top of a mountain could feel so good. Also, the downhill is pretty good! Made a new top speed of 87.5km/hr.
This past week went pretty well. We started off in Boise and worked our way to Mountain Home. When we got to town the Tour de France was on and we stopped at a restaurant and FILLED then entire place with yellow sea to sea jerseys. It was a blast! We played pool there and hung out for an hour or two and then carried on to the school to set up. That Mark Brouwer and I went to a Walmart and did some shopping and then went back to the school and went to bed.
The rest of the week Mark and I kinda hung back and just took our sweet time. Not alot exciting happened. Lots of amazing scenery. Met lots of nice people. Handed out lots of cards and talked to alot of strangers and told them about the cause. Its been a good week all in all.
I think the best way to tell the story is by me posting some photos.
Here is a fire that was just outside of the town we stayed in on Tuesday. We met a bunch of local kids watching the fire and treated them to Icecream and we took them swimming. They didnt have dads and didnt have enough money to even go to the local pool. It was a blast.
Ok... now the computer wont let me upload any more... yay! hehe gotta love technology!
For all the people who supported this tour. Its an amazing thing and I really really appreciate being able to represent our church and our area.
Thank you very very much!
