Want to support me? Follow my lead on a weekly challenge!
Can you put an obstacle between yourself and one of your distractions/addictions?
OR can you add something positive, such as a friend, teacher, or community?
I spent some of my week handing out environment-cleansing guides from EWG!
Post below (or on my facebook) to pledge you will attempt a variation of this challenge!
FACT OF THE WEEK
“Buffalo wings” are named after the city of their origin of popularity, Buffalo NY! Not for a funny idea that the buffalo animal has wings, as I always thought. Was is just me that assumed this? 🙂 Here, they call them simply “chicken wings,” never “buffalo wings.”
Rested in Rochester for a few days. Then found out last minute, my friend Rob (above), had a few days off and wanted to join me for 2 days! One of my favorite memories, was when the two of us got stuck in a bad storm, and consequently offered a place to stay by kind Chris (also above), whose house we were passing at the moment. Chris showed us a hilarious/scary homemade movie he made featuring his 4 year old as a swamp monster!
To give you an idea about how many good people I am meeting, and how much help I am receiving, I decided to keep track of all the items I received this past week:
2 energy booster shots, 2 peaches, 12 plums, 2 gatorades, 1 powerade, 1 roast beef sandwich, 5 bottles of water, 1 turkey sandwich, 2 hotdogs, 1 bag of almonds, 7 granola bars, 2 salads, 3 chicken wings, 2 vitamin waters, 1 spaghetti dinner, 1 bluegrass history lesson, 3 places to stay the night, and 100+ conversations, honks, waves, and peace signs.
Sometimes people ask if I have any official sponsors for my journey. I don’t, but I do have hundreds of unofficial sponsors, who I find in every single town I enter. I never ask for anything, but when people are extremely happy to help, I am also extremely happy to accept. I wouldn’t be able to keep going without various forms of encouragement, so thank you all, once again. 🙂 🙂
