Tomorrow is the beginning of a two-month adventure of driving to Yorktown, Virginia and peddling home on bicycles. Everything is packed and ready to go, I think. All day long I have been going over my lists, racking my brain trying to think of anything I may be forgetting. I have my bicycle, and my bicycle cloths, my camp cloths, and clothes for church, my tent and sleeping bag, a stove and enough food for a year😀. I have tools, spare tires for the pickup and trailer, spare everything for my bike, three tubes of Butt Butter👍, all my meds for two months, sunscreen, pepper spray for dogs, tooth brush, tooth paste, shampoo, razor, lots of liniment, several big bottles of ibuprofen, and my pillow. Oh yeh, my reclining lawn chair, and my Ipad and all charging stuff along with my cell phone. I can’t think of anything else, but if I discover anything I need we can always stop and buy it along the way.
As I ride 8 to 10 hours each day on my bicycle I will be doing a lot of reflective thinking about who I am in character, where I am in my growth, what needs work in me, possible goals for this upcoming year, and the years following. I will also listen to several sermons and lectures on podcasts each day, and my hearing aids blue tooth with my cell phone making it very easy to listen to what I have downloaded. We usually get into camp by 2:00 or 3:00 pm each day so I can easily get 5 or 6 hours of sermon and blog writing in each night along with some reading.
I am very excited and looking forward to the trip, and anticipating some great adventures and experiences.
