Updates From the Team

A hand-dug well in Cameroon

The ride wears on, the daily grind sometimes becoming so mundane and mechanical that I loose sight of its purpose. We seem to have streamed across the north in the blink of eye. Once over the Cascades and the Rockies the only natural obstacle in our way at first glance would be weather. To ride [...]

Half Full (Day 71)

It’s been a while since any of my updates have made it public, so here are a few images and thoughts from the 71st day of our journey. We left Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church Monday morning. This church gave us record-breaking donations for clean water and demonstrated incredible service through hospitality. I’m also going to [...]

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 [...]

Wandering for Joy

Less than a year ago, I found the answer to my question.  I had been tiresomely searching for years but to no avail.  Substituting and creating things with my own hands to solve a problem that I did not know existed nor needed to be solved.  Joy was what was lacking.  Pure and genuine joy.  [...]

From the Canyons of Zion

Thursday, July 7th we crossed yet another border, rolling past the great Lake Powell and into what is known as southern Utah. We slept in Kanab for the night before continuing on to the Canyons of Zion. Upon entering Zion I must admit that in all my travels I haven’t seen anything quite like this [...]
