“The company we are working for wanted to hire two young kids who are a bit more tech savvy, and it just happened to be my wife and I. It has been great. We are out here helping to put together a …kind of an exhibit… well actually no, I guess it is an exhibit… on the Tennessee-Tombigbee River Waterway. The waterway was created back in 1985 through a series of dams, canals, locks and straightening out of the river. So we are out here videotaping and photographing barges and the waterway. Being out there on those water towers filming- it is one of the most peaceful experiences I’ve had in a long time.  You know- I did a bike trip about two years ago from Portland across the States. I surprised my family along the way, but had to stop in Tennessee because when I arrived, my grandpa got really sick and had to go to the hospital. But bike touring is for just about everyone. I remember my favorite people I saw was this couple. They had just purchased two bikes from Wal-Mart, put a child’s trailer in back, had their dog in that, and told me they were on their way to Utah! That’s the way bike touring should be done. The one piece of advice I can give is that if you can stop or do something along the way, do it.”
