I rode up Mt. Lemmon today to the 7 mile point, higher altitude then I have been in a while. I saw at least 20 riders. It was so great, a couple of the riders ended up being some of my good friends, Terri Wyman and Rob. It was really good to see them, and Rob gave me news that his wife Molly one of my good friends is pregant. I also got to see one of my best friends today Maria, and her little boy Jaxson. They are doing very well. It is so nice to be back amongst many friends that I have lost touch with. Even the kids are into cycling. This girl in the picture was reciting her numbers up to 100. It was so cute. Posted by Picasa

Well the plan was to rest when I got here in Tucson, but then I hooked up with the Stephen's. Jessee was in town for one more day before he flew back to Hawaii so he took me on a Mountain bike ride that was so fun. I forgot how to do technical riding like sand and rock drop offs, so Jessee had to wait for me alot. It was a blast though. Then we all got together for dinner that was fantastic. And then Jessee's sister, Meryl said let's ride in the morning at 6:00am which was very early considering that's 3:00 Hawaii time and I am still not adjusted. It was way worth getting up that early, it was actually cold this morning. So once again the Stephen's got a chance to rage on me. Dave, Jessee's dad and Meryl made me work, but it was nice to be back on the trails in the desert.  Posted by Picasa

Well I made it back to the mainland. I drove into Tucson last night. I forgot how beautiful the desert can be. I got to view the sun set and the sun rise. I am staying with my friends Kim and Rob, and they have this beautiful house and two dogs that I am watching for a couple weeks while they are in New York, it is going to be pretty hard adjusting, I will take pictures and show you why later. Here are some shots already of Tucson. Kevin should be up and running in Hawaii as soon as he gets the camera in the mail. Posted by Picasa

Well last day for me in Hawaii. I have done pretty much everything I wanted. Thanks to family and friends I will never forget all the great memories and love shared in this amazing place. Me and Kevin are so fortunate to have the greatest friends & family, without everyone's love and support we would not be where we are today. Stay in touch, although me and Kevin will be apart for a while we will both be updating you from Tucson and from Hawaii with our adventures.

Thanks again to everyone that could make it out, we had a blast.
