I want to make you smile!

I would like to give a big THANK YOU to Laura Daley. Laura donated $50 to the cause and with a $50 donation she was able to dedicate a day of our trip to anything she wanted. She choose probably the best dedication possible. It certainly was fun for us. Laura asked us to make everyone we came in contact with smile, at least for the day if not the whole trip.

Laura is a good friend of Mike's. They met through work and have not only keep in touch but have become good friends. Mike was supper excited when he contacted Laura about the fundraiser. Mike feels that Laura is someone who understands how important an event like this is to him. Mike and I were. On this side of the freeway about to embark on Day 1. A few minutes earlier Mike told me a few stories about Laura, how they met and then told me about the dedication. This day, our first day, Mike and I were gong to smile at everyone we saw, waive and say hello. The look of us cruising down the Pan American Highway alone put a smile on people's faces but when they saw a big grin under the bike helmet with a Hola...buenos dias...people had no choice but to smile and waive back. All this interaction was a great way to break up the sound and smells of big rigs flying by us at 80 kilometers per hour.

Thanks again helped make day 1 extra special!

If anyone would like to make a donation and dedicate a day here is your chance...
