Well, we made it 42 days and 400 miles, but the trail has been deemed impassable for us. The snow drifts on the rideglines were 4 feet deep walls with the rest of the trail about knee deep. It was difficult navigating since everything was frosted white. We've been dealing with winter storms since the first of December and there is more to come. We are grateful for our new found friend "Paul Bunion" who has welcomed us to his home in Atlanta, Georgia, after meeting on the trail. It's been great here but we plan to head back West soon. We are taking a detour to gain funds and gear for the next adventure. We'll keep you posted. Once again, we cannot express enough our gratitude for those who have helped us along the way.

The Winter is hard and we are trying to find the best way to move south. The snow has been falling for 6 days now. Sometimes i think back about the bike and how easy it is compared to this trip. We are moving at the pace of about 10 miles a day and that seems to fit us. This afternoon we arrived in Boone NC, and are waiting for some gear to come in the mail. For the the next few days this will be home for us. We hope everyone is having a wonderful winter and are having as much fun and love that can be found. To all of our behind the scenes helpers we thank you for you support and advice. There will be more news as it comes to us and we will be glad to post it. Much love to you all, Hope you find some of the new pictures as wonderful as we hope to catch them in the lens of a camera.

We've been riding the waves of life but moving forward with a new goal. We are sending our bikes ahead to Tampa, Fl. and we will be departing November 15th via the Appalachian Trail South from here and linking the AT to the Florida Trail into Tampa. We suspect it will take approximately 5 months to complete. There are only a few things we need to obtain to be more prepared for the winter hike. The anticipation has been growing more intense with every passing day.
Once we arrive in Tampa we plan to travel into South America by boat and continue our tour on bikes. *Any support would be greatly appreciated!
We'll update again soon.

Some people have this idea that thoughts of change can in itself manifest into a positive reality. We can meditate on ideas of peace and harmony all we want, but remember your human form. Life is movement. Push past your own limitations, think outside of your own needs and be amazed. I believe the "collective consciousness" is only a part of the solution that will come naturally once we become aware of the destruction that is happening all around us and make decisions on what can be done that will benefit the "whole". WE MUST TAKE ACTION! We must make socially responsible decisions and put them into motion.
I feel things have come full circle on reasons why I left on this journey. It's been a struggle to try to re-introduce myself into this uncivilized society, after having seven months of ultimate freedom. Having only to worry about my basic human needs, having the time to lend a helping hand, to connect to every given moment, to explore the depths of my true self; that has been both cluttered and undiscovered from years of conditioning; to become a part of the slave race we are today.
I am trying to find creative ways to obtain things that are essential for continuing our tour, without having to be sucked into this draining "Brave New World" of American society
We will be back on the road as soon as we possibly can for the sake of our sanity!

As we were packing up to leave the town of Roanoke, the Universe enfolded an opportunity to embark on possibly one of the greatest accomplishments of a lifetime. In the past week we have been volunteering at Grandin Gardens We've been working as Grounds Managers for the community gardens and starting a nonprofit coffee shop called The Bee Box. Grandin Gardens is a not for profit organization that educates on and builds self- sufficient and sustainable "green" eco-villages in both rural and urban environments. THE END........
...........If you dont act NOW! BP is going to buy the patent........just kidding.........we love you all and hope that we hope to see more of you on the life tour.

We are currently in Roanoke, Virginia. We've been helping out at a great bike shop called Cyclo Ward located downtown. And are staying with a really nice family that has let us pitch camp in their backyard. This town has alot of helpful resources that we are taking full advantage of. We'll be back on the road in a few days. Meanwhile we're going to enjoy the artwalk and free enterrainment this weekend in town. We'll have some more pictures updated soon. love, love!

We've made it to the beautiful mountains of Appalachia! It's been a great ride through the Smokies on the Blue Ridge Parkway. We had to get our bikes re-outfitted in Asheville. Much thanks to the guys at BioWheels for hooking us up. Also to Megan and Bryan for giving us a place to stay and hanging out with us. We'll be back on the Parkway today to the beginning of Skyline Drive in Virginia. The pictures don't give it justice for how beautiful it is here but I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
We can't express enough how grateful we are to Matthew in Silver Springs, FL and Michael for helping us out tremendously. Much love to you guys! Keep in Touch.

We are resting for a good ride ahead of us. Now just north of Augusta GA., we are looking towards the climbs ahead. Jenna, Al and myself are doing fine, we are now just looking forward to working in Tennessee and North carolina for some new gear. ( If anyone works at a bike shop we are looking for help. we are getting low on funds and need some new equipment to keep the tour going ) The Kona's are holding up well and so is most everything else.
We will be switching to a bigger tire soon, cross your fingers. Hope everyone is doing well and keep in touch, we read every email and try are hardest to write back.
Love Love, the The life Tour Crew
