Need more info?

The first trip, I was asked often what my cause was, that one I really didn't have one, but now I do. I am riding for awareness, not just about Uterine Cancer, but our health in general. We know ourselves better than any doctor, stand up and fight for yourself, it may just save your life.
Head to the Facebook page, Kathleen's Wild Ride, once again updated most days by my friends Mary and Jay.

and so we wait . . .

This journey has been rewarding beyond measure for me. I have regained a lot of what I had lost of myself in the last difficult years of my life and feel that I have grown and strengthened as a person. Which is a funny statement cause what else would I grow as, a flower? Or perhaps a pigeon. Anyhow I digress, So it is with mixed feelings that I completed my journey. I reached my original goal of New Jersey and while I feel jubilant I also am sad to have finished my trip. That is until I remember that I am not home yet.
The girls and I are not done with our journey til we have reached our homes. They to the barn and me to an as of yet undetermined temporary haven while I get working again. The trip home is proving to be more frustrating and difficult than the ride ever was. I think that is because it is out of my immediate control. I am having to rely completely on others, and it is a bit disconcerting. Once again the people that are stepping up to help me are amazing. So far Claudia and Mare have hauled me to White Haven PA, where I wait for a ride to the border of Ohio. Once there I have rides across Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. I have a possible lead on Iowa, not sure yet, and if I can get 100 people to donate 10 to 20 dollars to my paypal account I can have a friend drive out from Oregon to pick me up.
But that is still a lot of ifs,so I am stuck in PA trying to find rides home and all I can do besides call everyone in my phone book is to wait. The only person that might be as frustrated as I am is Kevin, who wants his bed back.
