So obviously we are getting really psyched for this as we are posting with still several weeks to go. Update on the snow, they have had some warm temps and rain, so the snow is melting, hopefully will be gone or at least almost gone in 5 weeks. Reports are indicating a faster than average snow melt this year. We also want to thank those who have donated to the American Diabetes Association using our link, we have received some very generous donations. Currently we are at 10% of our goal. Donations can be made from now until some time after we complete the ride in August. We have begun practicing with the video camera and Jen believes that she is just hilarious, laughing at herself, we will see how funny she is after a looong hot day in the saddle!
