This is incredible! Why didn't you ever say anything to me, either by private email or here on the site?

Please say more about yourself. Have you been riding for long? How old are you? Where do you live? How has the fundraising been going?

>I was hoping to find you to introduce myself.

You should have told me! I would love to have met you.

After reading your message yesterday, I wrote to Steve Davis to joke that he's now a PMC grandfather. (He brought me into the PMC.)

>I even asked my riding friends to look for you.  I told them your name
>and you were quite tall.  That's all I knew.

Well, there are pictures of me that could have helped, but nothing would have helped like saying something ahead of time. :-) Oh well. Like you said, maybe next time.

Oh man... you're a survivor, too?

Good grief. I'm such a proud papa. ;-)

Corinne says she needs to tie a string to me so I don't just float away. Really, this was a great message, and I am riding a little high because of it.

>Sorry I missed you.  I wanted to compliment you on you website and
>your writings.  I've read most of it.  

I'm sorry, too, and it's doubly frustrating because we were obviously within eyesight of each other for at least an hour.

Thank you for the kind words about my writing, and for the whole letter. I hope you post more, at least to say a little more about yourself.


P.S. If you live in the Northeast, perhaps you'd like to join us for one of the other rides in the area? (Are you a regular rider? By now you know that lots of people in the PMC don't to much riding other than that weekend, so I have to ask.)
