TRIP 2012

Update #02 - January 31st
Baton Rouge, Louisiana
00.00 miles (00.00 KM)



I have been here in Baton Rouge for twenty-five days. I was truly hoping to be on the road in a couple of weeks around February 13th but that is not going to happen. The first reason why is that I haven't got my recumbent back from the bike shop. It took a while longer than expected to get the new parts. Hopefully, I will get Alice back by this February 03rd. I really miss going out on rides on Alice. Walking is okay but I miss the exercise from the ride. Besides, I need to get a couple of weeks of training rides in before I head out. I didn't have that option last year and for the first two weeks I was hurting.

The second thing is that I've got the chance to get some medical needs taken care of that I've not been able to before. I am not going to talk about what the medical needs are but these things should have been taken care of years ago. I am truly hoping that this will take a month or two.

For now, I am really hoping that I'll be on the road by March 27th. This will be the 19th anniversary of the official start of my ministry. Because of the late start, I'm making new plans for my upcoming trip. My original plan was to ride to the West Coast and back. I do not want to get caught in the SouthWest through the desert.

Instead, I will be traveling just as far as the Rocky Mountains and then turn North. I'd like to ride through San Antonio, Austin, and Waco, Texas before turning Northwest. I've got friends in the Colorado Springs and Denver, Colorado area. The only concern is that I will be possibly crossing Kansas and Nebraska during tornado season. I've stopped and helped after tornadoes but I don't want to get caught in one. From Colorado, I'll probably be riding up into South or North Dakota before turning Eastward to the East Coast. I haven't figured out where I will be ending this year's ride.

I'll try and add a new update every two weeks along the way so the next one will be around February 14th.
