I'm not sure if he is doubting me or trying to motivate me. but, my dad gave me some advice today, which was why the heck am I doing this? an you will never make it down there. I hate to tell him but the effect its having on me is making me more motivated to prove him wrong. end of rant my aid got her bike today and she is taking it to a LBS to get everything adjusted on it

training rides went well this week and weekend. right now I'm trying to nail down my routes to Texas. So far I've got everything down to to just north of New Orleans. Basic of course, some changes here and there are needed. But, I've got to wait on the maps that I requested. I ended up adding about 300+ miles to my trip by choosing the more safer biking route. But, I think it will pay off in the long run. I just got off of the phone with Mr. Douglas who works for the Texas state DOT. He provided me with a wealth of information on how to get through Texas to Dallas. I guess I will owe him a beer when I get down there for all of the info. he gave to me. Well in other news my aide is buying a very nice bike from one of her friends. The cool thing is that its all set up for the road trip already.

it's raining today and I've got a head cold. So I opted to stay in and nurse my cold and get better for my vacation next week. Well my rides went pretty good this week. It was the first time I was able to get out and ride with out being all bundled up. Yesterday (thursday) my aide went with me for her 1st ride. we will slowly work up to doing 70+ miles but, she did pretty good for not riding a bike for a while. when we got home we worked on our route. an we've got it down to Ohio, Ky, Tenn. thats good enough for right now I'm getting allot of assistance from the Adventure Cycling Association. for my route down to Dallas
