day 31 Rest day San Antonio

It must be important to have an impressive entrance to your ranch. I have pedalled past a boatload of them. Large cut stone, custom wrought iron security gates and lintels, and attractive fencing seem to be the standard. A circular tree lined driveway leading to a distant house, and a private airstrip adds a nice touch. We sure devote a lot of resources to appearances. It is nice to create a peaceful and attractive setting, but I can't help thinking about that camel and the eye of a needle.

My rest day started at 4:30 am. I drove to San Antonio for TV interviews, 3 high school talks, and meeting with the Teens in the Driver Seat program. Enjoyed a late afternoon visit to the Alamo and historic sites, the riverwallk, outside music, and a boat ride. Heading back to Austin tomorrow afternoon.


  1. Thank-you so much for meeting with those kids and sharing your and Eric's story. You are doing so much good in getting this message out there in our minds.

  2. Even on the other side of the continent, your ride and writings are tremendously moving and inspirational. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family as you continue on your journey. _ Laura Webb in North Carolina
