Kudos to everyone of you who is out there making your adventures happen, regardless of the conditions mother nature has thrown your way. These last couple days have been tough, pushing through the sunny 70 degree weather on the Gulf Coast of Florida. To be frank, I don't know if I am going to pull though these next three weeks of long sunny miles....

I will leave you with the words of my Road Manager, Jimmy D, "Vivi il Songo, Vola come il Vento," translated means, live the dream, ride like wind.

Okay, punk. I'm up here in Milwaukee, freezin' my bag off trying, to retrofit Triumph TR8 brake pads on a '72 MGB, with only a kerosene heater and Wisconsin public radio to keep me company, and you're out there bicycling around Florida, telling me to "live the dream, ride the wind". Well I've got "wind" for you, and it doesn't smell like a sea breeze! For me, the dream is temperatures above my shoe size, and a wind that doesn't cause frostbite on my way to the garage!

In all seriousness, Kate and I are very proud of you and your
accomplishments this year, and hope your holidays with your mom are world class (give her a hug from us).

Lotsa love,

Uncle Chrispy and Aunt Kate

You keep me smiling Uncle C, keep that "wind" away from the kerosene or you will be "retrofitting" a little more than your brakes! Thanks for your support guys! Right back at cha, much love and respect, Nick
