|Sidney has a great heart.|
Not so much on the pancreas.
I feel honored by every donation, however, small and I'm glad former students are donating. You know, they could be sending hate mail. (Just so they don't use the words "things" or "stuff." One of my favorite donations comes from Sidney S., the 7-year-old girl from Bozeman, Montana and type-1 diabetic I met while doing a practice ride in Florida in February. I'm already riding in her name; but she decided to help out by donating all the money she's received so far from the Tooth Fairy.
I wish all of you could meet this sweet young lady.
I'd pedal to the moon if we could cure diabetes.
I plan to skirt below Lake Ontario and across northern Ohio, maybe stopping in Akron, where I grew up, and then aim south to Cincinnati. My wife Anne and I are headed for a wedding on Cape Cod, July 16. So that means taking a week out of my ride. Then it's back to Cincinnati and head west.
If I'm feeling good about bicycling across America, I may try to go over Rocky Mountain National Park and then head north to Yellowstone, then bend south again. All I know for sure is I plan to go through Yosemite on the way to the Pacific coast.
