Sponors and Friends

When I first told some friends that I was planning this bike ride, one of them said she and her husband should give me some money for it. The immediate reaction from the husband and myself was, “What?!”

“You know, like sponsor him,” was her reply.

I told them that I didn’t expect any sponsorship, but I wouldn’t turn any down.  In fact, if they gave me any money or supplies, I’d happily claim they were my sponsor. I’d even wear a t-shirt with their logo on it (yes, my friend has his own logo.) I haven’t acquired any major sponsors for this trip, but I’ve gotten help from a lot of family and friends along the way.  Here are some of them. And if you want to be included on my list, you can contact me through the comments and we’ll be in touch.

  2. Thanks for the support. I am currently in Baltimore and tomorrow I’m on my way to DC. I’ve finished with the north for now, and I’m onto my southern half.
