It’s now only 36 hours to liftoff! That’s the time I will rouse myself at 4 am and eat a hearty breakfast prepared by my lovely wife Brigitte before she piles me and my riding buddy Merritt into our minivan and takes us over to Smyrna, GA . . . about 25 miles away.
At the Zero mile marker off Mavell Road in Smyrna, we begin the Silver Comet Trail. Brigitte will help us unload, Merritt will hook up the bike trailer and I’ll hop on my 36-incher to begin a 200-mile unicycle journey to the Alabama wilderness and back!
The ride will start around 7:30 am and continue for about 38-40 miles. We hope to arrive in Rockmart, GA that afternoon around 2-3 pm in time to catch a late lunch at Frankie’s Restaurant near the trail before heading over to our hotel – the Garden Inn & Suites. If you happen to be in Rockmart around that time, join us for lunch!
We’re riding for the Himalayan Children’s Charities – a non-profit foundation that sends 100% of all donations to the orphans in Nepal. So be sure to stay tuned to these pages . . . and sponsor my ride by clicking on the PayPal Donate Button in the upper right-hand corner of this page!
I’ll try to blog every day from now until the end of the ride. So keep checking back…
