7/10

Holy cow - it's been a good day for pledges to the MS. With the help of another former Navy fellow, Dave - living down in Texas (Austin, so he's cool), I'm at an even 70% of my personal goal.

Once again, thanks to all.

an even 600 and 60%

Thanks to the fairly unusual donation amount from JP, living up in Alaska, my total is at an even $600! And now I'm at 60% of my personal goal of $1000 for this MS ride.

On a side note: for those of you out of the know - JP is one of my Navy buddies - one of the smart ones, like me, that saw a brighter future elsewhere and got out when he had the chance.

Mid-Week update and a few photos

A late breaking pledge from Dr. Dibs, all the way from Tennessee! Thank you, sir.

Weekend Update

You should know that most of the currently ten strong team of 1FS showed up at Adam and Jessica's house last evening for a team meeting and get-to-know-you social. A reminder to anybody that makes a pledge to me that there will be an equally if not more impressive gathering a week or so prior to the ride, thrown by myself in your honor - of course it will likely be warmer at around that time, so you won't have to wear so many jackets and outer wear type clothing.

This is my bike last night en-route to Adam and Jessica's place up in NE Mpls - yes, that's a 5L mini-keg of König Pilsener on the rear rack. What's that you say - you've never heard of that beer? That's because you can't buy it here, that's why. It was flown over in the suitcase of a German buddy of mine a week or two back... That's the level of detail we put into being team 1FS - only the finest and most difficult to come by material possessions will do. Nothing is too good for us - unless it comes to your pledge - keep them coming - large and small pledges are both gladly accepted.

53%

Thanks to a late night donation by Dr. Vatson, the MS is getting 53% of personal goal of $1k.

Just a reminder to fence-sitting potential donors - this money is not going to me or my team - this money is being used "to support MS research and enable the many programs offered by the National MS Society for people affected by MS."

and yes, the comments are open for discussion - if you have any questions, you can do so by leaving a comment or by emailing/calling/visiting me.

Thursday Update

I'm at the half-way point of my personal goal - within a few cents, anyway. Our team is still a bit shy of their goal, so if you're a business, please help out the team in any amount possible.

Thanks to everyone thus far!
