Our Awesome God! "We wheel on by the amazing grace of our Awesome God" is truly
the slogan for our journey!
I wish to thank BikeE Marketing Manager Lee Eckroth for his support and
encouragement. My BikeE RX is a fantastic piece of recumbent cycling technology
and it is manufactured right here in the Northwest at Corvallis, Oregon. I
would like all prostate cancer patients and others with similar problems to know
that they do not have to quit cycling. Often I remark that my BikeE "Sweet Seat
" is like putting my easy chair on wheels. Click
to check out BikeE. Thanks Lee. God Bless
I wish to thank Bryant Mayfield and his staff at Richland Schwinn. As the local
dealer for BikeE, Bryant has "customized" my RX for me and has patiently and
thoroughly answered my many questions and needs. Thanks guys. God Bless.
This is a HUGE Thank You to my very supportive family. I cannot thank "ALL Y'ALL"
(Chris says that's southern plural for y'all) enough for your prayers and
encouragement during the past four years of preparation, planning and sometimes
questionable medical times. Some extra special thanks go to: wife Pat for her
willingness to support the time and financial cost of this, probably my most "eccentric
" undertaking; son David and his wife Linda for all the computer help and taking
the time to drive Pat back to Kaukauna so that she can attend the 50th High
School Reunion celebration with me; son Randy and his wife Dianna for taking
time out of his busy life of fathering and managing the engineering department
at Genie Industries in Redmond (the Seattle area) to make the 2001-mile bike
ride with me . . . we will never forget it; son Jeff for the use of, and helping
set up the trip link on his www.lettau.com website; daughter Christine and
husband Mike for their computer and logo input; son Matt and his wife Heidi for
their uncountable hours setting up the website, communication equipment,
designing handout "business" cards, t-shirt and cap logos (didn't Heidi do a
great design job?) and for their continuing involvement acting as the webmasters
for the daily report and photo updates throughout the trip; grandson Joe for
taking time out of his busy work and 20-year-old life to accompany Randy and I
on this great adventure and to possibly be our "tow" on the longer, steeper
hills. AND, once again, I thank all of you in advance for your continued prayers
for Randy, Joe and I as we go.
Thanks to the Richland Missionary and Alliance Church's Pioneer Girls Club for
inviting me to do a "show and tell" about the trip and my BikeE RX on April 23.
It was a fun time and I appreciate your interest and prayers as Randy, Joe and I
go on this adventure. I will not forget you Stefanie Thomas, Heidi Sandburg,
Carmen Michener, Kirsten Lindquist, Zoe Wittman, Elizabeth Michener, Lauren
Roberts, Lauren Curran, Amanda Koopman, Ali Minette and adult leaders Nancy
Wittman and Ann Michener.
