First day on the road

Today was the first day of our trip. After a great and emotional sendoff, we began our journey… under a heat advisory.  It was incredibly hot and sticky. We didn’t make it all the way to Waukesha. But, along the way,  we met some awesome,  generous people.
Tomorrow, we leave from near Elm Grove and will make it to Dousman.  Trust us, we’re not unhappy about a high of 78 tomorrow.
Assuming all goes well tomorrow,  we will post some pics and a longer blog tomorrow. Tonight we are incredibly tired, had to repack to reduce weight,  and are dealing well with the soreness and heat of today.
We want to thank everyone who came to our sendoff, donated money for our mission, wished us well, and honked or waved or cheered us on.
Day 2 promises to be a great day.  We look forward to stepping it out tomorrow.
Tom and Anthony
