Just a few more days!

Y'all... It's been a whirlwind for me and my family. My graduation, a friends wedding(congrats Boyer and Kelly deBoyer!), tom's graduation, everybody finishing up school, an interview with propel hr, Paul finishing up work, and all of the logistics that come with shipping our bikes via plane. 
But we have just a few days till we start!!!(June 6th)

Our last minute stuff includes a final bike maintenance workshop at the store we bought our bike from(Ride On), a final tune up, packaging up our bike in boxes that will ship with us, and a final check for all the items we need. 

Also, in other exciting news we have decided to ride across the country for a cause. Its called The Foundation For Fighting Blindness. Our Dad has a degenerative eye disease and this foundation helps research cures for these types of diseases. The way I understand it is the disease is called Ushers Syndome II, which degenerates both hearing and sight. The sight part of this disease is called RP(retinitis Pigmentosa) which slowly deteriorates peripheral vision and continues until near blindness. 

So we created a website to raise support and we posted the link at the top of our blog page. Our goal is to raise $10,000 and create any sort of awareness we can.All three of us are excited for the opportunity!

Thanks for all the prayers and encouragement for our trip, we really appreciate it and need it! Also, shout out to my mom and sister. They have sat through many conversations of planning and looked for any way they can support us. These girls are awesome, and deserve a lot of credit for helping us make this whole thing happen. 

More later. Love all you people. Y'all are great.

Much love,
