"I am traveling 12 to 15 hours per day. The question as to whether I will have time to go both ways has been answered; I won't have time before school starts. Two sponsors gave me t-shirts before I left. I had to leave the Brown's Tree Service shirt on the road with some skin attached after my first fall. I have had two close encounters with 18 wheelers, both of them survived! My Axtell's seal coating shirt is soil coated. I am thinking of writing a book entitled What Not To Do When You are Over 58, but I have a few things to add to it before I write it. I will try to write later. People have been great. I had a few repairs to do after my spill."
