Getting really excited here! One week from tomorrow I fly to Missoula and begin the adventure. Preparations are in hand; I have been giving lots of thought to what to bring and what to leave home. I did a 1040 mile bike tour last summer, pulling a BOB trailer, and I want to keep the trailer as light as possible this year.
I’ve been having lots of opportunities to share the shark finning problem with people as I work to promote the campaign. I am heartened to learn that many folks already know at least something about what is happening, and all are disgusted and distraught about it. It gives me hope when I learn that people have empathy even for an animal that most consider to be a ruthless killer of people(which it is not).
Many thanks to Cambria Bicycle Outfitters who have been very generous and supportive of our campaign. They have given me a deep discount on parts and supplies for the bike, provided a free tuneup for my bike, and also boxed and shipped both bike and trailer to Missoula. Thank you CBO!
Talk to you soon!
