Houston to Austin, TX – on the bike

Between the road and the trainer that’s parked upstairs in Ben’s old bedroom, I’ve put over 350 miles on a bike since late December until now.  It’s the training regimen I’m doing so that the ride between Houston & Austin on April 21-22 won’t be as difficult.  I”ll be driving out toward Houston on the 17th or 18th, arriving on Thursday or Friday morning & make the final preparations for the ride.

The picture below was taken on the 2010 ride.  That’s the first year I did the ride with Don. Last year, Don, his daughter Erin, Mark, his niece Courtney, & I all rode.  Hopefully, we’ll all ride again this year.

If you haven’t yet, please take a moment to click on this link & donate to the MS Society.  We ride to help those who can’t.  God bless.

Replies are good, right?

I received a reply from one of the e-mails sent to crewers on Friday.  I had mistakenly left off Steve’s name (he who recommended me) on the original messages, so I re-sent them yesterday.  Unfortunately, I don’t think the responses will include work very quickly, so I continue to search other venues for income.

Spent the day “talking” to Steve about possible contacts for some freelance work.  We were exchanging FB messages and he was giving me contact info for crewers.  Thank you very much Steve.  I’ve already sent resumes to 2 of them and he promises to send contact info for 2 more.  Say some prayers.

Also sent resumes to other companies found doing a search on DuckDuckGo.com.   A decent search engine that doesn’t give you a bunch of “I want to sell you something” sites before actually getting to pertinent locations. It was a busy day of trying to get busy!

Lastly, MANY Thanks to Geoffrey for teaching an old dog new tricks.  (Not that I’m old or anything!)  I now have a link to download my resume here.  I’d like to have a pageview of it as well, and I’m sure that it is possible, but you can’t teach the old dog EVERY trick in 1 day, right?
