See this guy is a lot more credible than Tellman...he is only trying to raise a million dollars and he is not doing it barefoot. Plus the credibility of he is well on he way...and don’t forget his education.

Wow a 100 miles a day...I did 45 miles yesterday going back and forth between Greenfield. Almost killed me and my butt will never be the same...but I feel great this morning. But for these professionals cyclist, they are quiet amazing what they can do. Wonder what kind of bicycle he has.

I admire this guy a real lot, and really respect his better half, his wife.

Solar powered bike?

There is only one kind of biking...and it is all solar powered. Right, all the energy, the food we eat, it all comes from the energy from the sun. All life on planet earth is built by the energy of the sun.

So I get half way to Greenfield when I hit the line of thunderstorms. I am in Gill, there is lightning all around, out in the middle of no where. I try hiding under the tree, but to no avail. The lightning simmers down...so I said I just might a well continue on to Greenfield. I ride in the rain for the next hour or so.

I reach my goal of being in down town Greenfield...I am sitting on the benches by the Congressional churches....by the bus stop. I figure it is going to rain all the way back to Hinsdale. It is about 75 degrees out...I am temperature very comfortable...but it is raining cats and dogs out. I am just happy to be off my bike. So I figure I might as well get out my lunch and drinks...and eat on the bench. I am really enjoying my time sitting on the bench. It is pouring rain out...people are eyeing me carefully as they passed me with their umbrellas...I am sure many they think I am mentally ill. I had some church people come over to talk to me to access my mental health. I had another kindly women telling me the church is putting on a dinner for the homeless and poor people...you are welcome to come over, it just starting...she wont take no for a answer. I finally ask do they have coffee over there? She says yes. So I get my bike and follow her to the church...park the bike in the cellar. I will do anything for free coffee!

I bet you there was 50 to 75 people in the church cafeteria coming from diner...mostly the homeless and the mentally disabled. They had egg salad and tuna fish sandwiches, macaroni salad, a big bowl of Cesar salad, and Watermelon pieces. I had already eaten. I had three great cups of very good coffee.

I had been riding in the pouring rain for the last almost two hours...and sitting on the bench in the rain for 45 minutes. As I walk around the cafeteria, I leave wet marks all over the floor...rivers of water are being pumped out of my sneakers. Everyone in the joint was eyeing me, thinking why am I soaking wet and am OK mentally. I had many wet marks to and from the coffee pot. They got a church volunteer to follow me around with a mop...they had to mop up my wet marks in front of the food table. Nobody said a thing to me about being wet....i was nothing but welcomed and smiled upon.

What a beautiful day I had in the rain all day yesterday! It is amazing how durable our bodies are outside our temperature control environments and our bodies have been designed to spend hours out in the rain without melting or rusting. Our bodies have been so amazingly engineered for us?
