Dear Dave, We were very impressed today after reading in the Bend Bulletin about your adventure. We did the same trip in 1979 and just celebrated our 25 year anniversary in Breckenridge, Co. My wife and I met on this trip and have 2 kids now, 15 and 17 years old. The 17 year old has had juvenile diabetes since age 9. So we have firsthand experience with the trip as well as the diabetes, therefore we know what you have accomplished and admire you for this. Our check is on the way. Klaas and Leslie Veenstra
