What just happened?

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. Now, we are back home and there will be a lot to process before we better understand what we have just been through. It will be time before we know what God still has to teach us from it all. I’m thankful for [...]

Am I crazy?

Am I crazy?

[photo by Audrey] This seems to be a question that some ask me with their eyes and sometimes even outright. I am driving around the country helping cyclists out with my wife and three year old daughter. We left our families and home behind for this five month trip. Sometimes we don’t know what we [...]

If only for a short while…

If only for a short while…

Today we went from Wilbur WA, a wonderful and generous town, to Spokane. For the most part it was fairly uneventful. We saw a fox or two and a whole lot of wheat fields. One of the best things that happened was that a Dominos donated three pizzas for a rest stop. A wonderful blessing. [...]

Olympia (day 48)

Of all the places we have been I think that Olympia was the first place that I thought, “I could really live here.” That may have just freaked my mom out, but not to worry. We will wait a couple of weeks. It’s not that we haven’t likes other places or thought they were wonderful [...]

A View to a Kill (Day 34)

(Note about the title: It really has nothing to do with anything other than that it was the first thing that popped into my head when I thought about the view at Renee and Paul’s flat… and I wanted to throw in a Bond reference…) We woke up this morning in a San Francisco hotel [...]

Six Degrees Of Separation (Day 27)

What an interesting day! Until about 10pm last night we had no idea where we were going to stay in Mammoth Lakes. Originally we had found a church, but due to reasons that we still don’t completely understand, they had to back out. So the pressure was on because I was responsible for finding a [...]

Peace (Day 20)

What is there that can be said about Zion National Park that can best describe it? Beautiful? Breath taking? Amazing? Every word that I think of doesn’t even come close. To have a rest day here in Zion has been a huge blessing. It is such a peaceful place. I am in awe of just [...]

Rest has never looked so good (Day 13)

A rest day is nice, but two rest days in a place like this is unbelievable! We arrived in Farmington, NM yesterday after a pretty long hard day full of crazy hills, and for us a busted water jug that leaked all over the trunk of the car. So it was wonderful to be hosted [...]
