Thanks Nathan. I guess it is time to officially announce the Ride. As all our HDDC friends know Doug and I are riding to the Arctic Circle, leaving on June 16th from A&S. Doug has been the motivator for the trip as I didn't think I would physically be able to do it. After a number of discussions with Doug I said yes. After all, who can say no to Doug

The goal of the trip is to have a good time. It has been Doug's dream for many years to do this trip and his enthusiasm has become infectious. So the primary objective is for two "old guys" (sorry Doug) to be off on the adventure of their lives.

On the other hand because so many of my friends have questioned the wisdom of an active cancer patient undertaking this trip I thought I should make this trip a little more public and raise awareness that a cancer patient can do almost anything s/he make up their minds to do.

The Roseville Sutter Cancer Center is partnering with me to make this a ride to raise cancer patient awareness to their own potential and to hopefully raise some money for the Cancer Center.

Please visit the ride site for detailed information:

http://www.dellfields.com/ArcticCircle.html

If you have any friends or relatives who are actively dealing with cancer please show them this site. As you can see from the Cancer Center donation page this ride is not about finding a cure, it is all about helping people cope with their or their loved one's cancer.

Thanks,

That should be about 240-280 miles or so if they don't do a bio break.


Oh, you mean first overnight stop.

Dell, I'm awe of you. My wife's a cancer survivor, although her ordeal has been a picnic compared to yours. Actually, your story sounds a lot like my best friend Chip, who unfortunately didn't make it. You're a fighter, and I think you're doing the right thing by going on this trip. Hats off to you, and Doug as well. It's a gift to have a friendship like you guys have.

I look forward to hearing about the trip. Please keep the updates coming.

Doug and Dell,

Wish I could ride out with you guys... but it is my Grandsons birthday and he is visiting from Georgia just to be with Grandma and Grandpa on his birthday... I think that Grandma is going to spoil him....

this is going to be an adventure of a lifetime...

Rob, Phil, Tom and I are still planning on leaving on July 7th ... so maybe we will run into you on the road....

Have a fantastic trip.....

Mike Harrold
