Today is the day! I will be heading to the first overnight spot today just North of New York City on the Hudson. Every year I do my own personal Ride for Roswell either before or after the event. On Sunday, May 18th I will be leaving Battery Park in New York City and begin my journey to Niagara Falls New York. Five hundred beautiful miles through the Empire State along the Hudson River and the Erie Canal. From the Statue of Liberty to the home of our nations first comprehensive cancer research center in Buffalo.
We are doing some final packing of the camper, should be heading out this afternoon. Waiting in anticipation to see if my star driver from my road crew will be able to make it. Last night we found out that the great lady that will be driving my truck and camper from site to site may not be able to come. She just had an urgent family medical emergency come up. We are working on Plan B and praying for Plan A. A passage from my morning read was so appropriate –
Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails. Proverbs 19:21
I am so tired of cancer and the toll it is taking on my friends, my neighbors and my community. Looking forward to riding, celebrating life and doing something to punch cancer back.
