My 24 year old son and I are leaving May 1st 2013 for a 7000mi bicycle tour through South America. I am taking a hiatus from my job for 8 months. I just finished up 37 years at the same co. so I believe I deserve a break. What do you think? My son has racked up 20,000 miles on his bicycle. This will be my first ride so it's balls to the wall for me. I turn 60 a month after we leave and feel honored to have this Fantastic adventure with my son. I am truly blessed and a little bit crazy. We are trying to raise $10,000 to build a well in Africa for "The Water Project" Check it out One Ride One World. We invite All who wants to add a little spice to there life to ride with us for a while!
