We got some exciting news from K9’s For Warriors last month. You have donated enough for us to sponsor another Warrior and K9. It was so gratifying to see Adam and Blaze graduate 15 months ago. We are beyond excited to have this honor once again. Thanks to all of you for your support.
Now, we just need to come up with a name for this next K9. Blaze was named for the white blazes which marked the Appalachian Trail. I’m hoping for something related to the Camino de Santiago. If you have an idea, please let me know.
I get asked on a frequent basis what my next adventure will be. My response has been that I have a few things in mind but that I wasn’t ready to commit to anything yet. Well, I’m ready now.
Get your bike tires inflated and strap on your helmet. We’re going on a little bike ride. In the summer of 2021, we’ll hop on a bike and ride from Anacortes, WA (very NW corner of continental US) to Key West, FL.
It’s somewhere around 4,700 miles so should be a challenge. I have as much cycling experience as I did hiking experience before the AT. That would be 0. I have ridden a bike before so it shouldn’t be a problem!!
One of the highlights of this ride will be travelling along Hwy 12 in South Dakota from Mobridge to Ortonville, MN. I will pass right through my hometown of Bristol, SD! I’ll also ride right near our current home in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL.
Thanks once again for all the support you have given me in these adventures. I can never tell each of you how much that means to me. I look forward to taking you along once again.
