Here we are in.. where are we? oh yea George West Texas!

It has been a long day.  I was able to do 53 miles in 2:30 minutes this morning (averaged a little better than 20 mph) then i did another 53 this afternoon .  but I did these miles in 3:30 hours.  I had a strong head wind that slowed me down so I was not able to finish the second leg of the ride untill 8:30 pm!  And spent the next 2 hours driving forward because all the hotels around here were full! 

 But we are now finally here, im showered and ready to go to bed and see what tomorrow holds for us.. 

Untill now I have been working as hard as I can (and will continue to do so) I have workled through pain and mental barriers and you all have been great by saying the right thing over and over.  Thank yo uvery much again for helping me get to this point.

Now, I must ask you again to help me.

I am happy I can do this and that I haave so many people helping me through it all. 

But the reason we do this, ride miles and miles to Mexico is this:  Right now in this instant, there is a child going hungry, a mom wondering how is she going to buy her kids school supplies.  A father leaving home to try and find food for his family.  A child not complaning about the pain in her stomach because she knows her parents cannot afford to take her to a doctor…

We have seen all of this in just one village..we work with at least 12 villages.  We have told you about all of these issues numerous times, and numerous times you have come through, you have helped us.  I am asking you again to do so.  How? please donate NOW, now is when I want you to get in our website and donate, sponsor miles, or just donate.. 

This ride cannot be a success without your donations..without your donations we cannot help these people..

I will be crossing the border very soon..the day after tomorrow actually, and my hope is that by then I have already seen the do nations come in..I want to see that you, my frieds, my family..people I have never met ,decided that you can give me one more push, one more reason why I need to get though the next 10 days..This 8 days have been long but the hard part is yet to come..As soon as I cross the border the terrain is different, no longer flat..I will be climbing almost every day..Climbing is a lot harder..I know i can get through it, I know I can count on you to help me get through it!

But for now, donate.  Just give to Vidas, I promise, your money will be very well used, many children and their families are counting on us, they are counting on you.

Thanks to Dr, Steve kizer who made a pledge that he would donate 40 cents per mile..who is next? 

Now is time for me to try and get some rest..stay tuned,


To Liliana, Sulema and Eva..The Vultuers are back! Yes, they were chasing me again today, just like they did the last time I did this!   i guess papi smell like a dead carcass now because those birds were cirlcling around me like they wanted something!! they followed me for a little while.. So I decided to sing to them, you know? like i sing all the time with my very nice voice!! But i guess they just dont know a good voice when they hear it because as soon as I started singing they took off!! I just think they have bad taste in music to be honest with you..but htey defenitely liked my smell..may be I should try showering more often, weather i need it or not, what you gilrs think?

Ok mijas, be good to each other and to Caly, please tell mami I love her ok?

Love, papi
