    Well in one week from today I'll be driving to the west coast with my dad.  I cant believe how fast the time has gone since we started the planning of this idea.  I'm super excited to start and a little nervous.  I'm realizing the hardest thing about all of this is not going to be climbing mountains or biking crazy distances every day for two and a half months, but its going to be leaving my family for the whole summer.  Sarah by far has the harder job this summer being home with the kids.  They are loads of fun and super draining but Sarah will be up for the challenge.  We will also have lots of helping hands between our parents, siblings, cousins and wonderful people from our church who have offered to support her in any way they can.  It will be tough not to wake up to Jonathan and Charlotte's smiling faces everyday but I hope they wont hold it against me to much.  I really want them to know that sometimes its not all about doing things for yourself and its important to make sacrifices for those you love, especially your family. So next Sunday we will begin the drive to Victoria.  It should be a fun drive with my dad as I cant remember the last time we did something like this.  I hope he is not to bored following me on my bike.  I am super thankful for his willingness to give up his time and vehicle to help make this idea come together, without him it would not likely happen.  Anyway if you are reading the blog keep your eyes on it for updates along the way.  I'm hoping to update it everyday depending on how the days are going etc.  We are almost at 13,000.00 raised so if you have not yet donated and wish to we appreciate it.  Im really hopeful that by the end of the ride we will reach the goal of 25,000.00

    Kevin your kids won't hold it against you. When they are a little older and realize exactly what you have done to help others they will be so proud of you... just as we all are
