Wow we have been MIA! We have been so busy between build days in Loveland Colorado and Lawrence Kansas and climbing through the Rocky Mountains!
Our build days consisted of dry walling the ceiling of a 5 bedroom home in Lawrence and landscaping a 3 bedroom home in Loveland.
We also hosted our second bike clinic for kids in Loveland where we fitted 15 kids with new helmets and taught them bike safety. Interacting with kids and seeing how excited they are to hear about what we are doing is really rewarding.
We finished climbing Trail Ride Rd, the highest paved road in North America and we were just above 12,000 ft with 18 miles of climbing. The climb was definitely one of the more challenging experiences of the trip, but also one of the most rewarding. At the top of the mountain the weather was roughly 30 degrees cooler and our jackets were a must.
Jacob and I both bough hammocks and have been busy finding awesome nap spots along the route! Let’s just say napping is more tempting than ever.
We have roughly 1,500 miles to go and this has hands down been the best summer of our life. In Loveland Colorado we were fortunate enough to have our friend Hannah and her family visit us.
The 30 of us are getting closer than ever and we are truly learning to live and operate as a team. I think it is fair to say we are all string nervous for this amazing experience to come to an end.
We had our first night of camping out the other day in Nebraska after a hard ride and a few hours of swimming at the local pool. We are going to be camping out again throughout Utah.
And some amazing photos…
