Well, as we journey onto Colorado, 4 of our riders have left to head home. We have many people who are doing sections of the cross country journey because it is hard to get a full 2 months off work and responsibility at home. Also, we have about 9 (not sure how many yet, I haven't met them) new ones joining us on this next section, labeled the Rockie Moutain Tour. I am going to especially miss, Charlie, who has such a great sense of humor. I really enjoyed my time getting to know him. He is going to met up with us as we pass through some other towns to say hello. I look forward to seeing him again (pictured here).
So far all our riders who are riding the whole way are healthy and doing well. No one is near dropping out but I think we all are looking forward to exploring more of the USA together. I am feeling at home with everyone now and am feeling comfortable and connected! It's like having a family away from home. It's fantastic.
