I am departing from the usual rule of posting my own photos - except for picture prompts.
This is a photo (not mine) of my son Scott at Ecuador.
He has just begun the ride of his life - for 5 months.
(He is currently up to Day 5 of riding.)
Quote from his blog post Friday 29th June:
The ride involves riding my mountain bike 11,000km alongside, on and crossing the Andes mountains in South America. Riding south from Quito Ecuador at the equator, to Ushuaia Argentina. Ushuaia being just about as far south as you can get before going for a chilly swim to Antarctica.
Yes, I am worried, but I am also very proud of his inner strength and courage, daring to challenge his body, mind and spirit.
And he does it all with a purpose in mind.
He is raising funds for the Kids' Cancer Project.
If you have time, I would so love you to check out his blog and maybe leave an encouraging comment.
And if you have a little more time, maybe insert his widget (on his blog's right sidebar) so you can keep pace with his posts of this amazing journey.
Courage means daring
Daring to push barriers
Courage means dreams
Convert to reality
Living inner strength
