In other news...

So its 6:30 AM day of departure... We're both awaken by a phone call we had never expected. NEWS 13, of Hampton Roads, VA called us for an interview. Tired and nervous we gathered our bikes and threw on the best set of biking gear we had. It turns out they wanted to do an entire story on our trip and how we came up with it. It was 40 degrees out and we must have done at least 15 different videos on our bicycles, but it was well worth it.

For those of you that live in VA/NC and receive NEWS 13 WVEC we will be on the 14th of April between 5 - 5:30 PM. We hope you catch it.

Hey Andrew,

It's Uncle Jordan! I saw your dad Easter Sunday and he told us about your trip. I saw the route on the computer and thought you can spend a night here in Charlottesville, VA. I'll cook you guys a kick-ass meal an send you on your way in the morning after a kick-ass breakfast! Let me know or go through your dad to tell me.

434-882-2931.
Good Luck.

Uncle Jordan

Hey Uncle Jordan,

Thanks for checking out our site, and your offer to give us shelter and food for a night!

As of now we are not sure if we will be coming back to the North of VA Beach or the South. But we will be pushing for the North so we can stay at your place.

We'll keep in touch!
