Being Interview by Fox 12
Home away from Home
and their off...
It is now official Mikael and his dad have started their amazing journey, the bicycle tour around the U.S. a total of 12,000 miles. We all met at Aloha High School this morning, Mikael went to High School there. For him that is where his athletic life started and ultimately where it ended as well. It seemed appropriate to leave Portland from Aloha High School. Fox 12 News interviewed him and you will be able to see it on Sunday July 22nd.
His mom Trish and his cousin Kandis are their support team. They will be driving the truck and trailer and making sure they stay safe. We couldn't do this without them, so thankyou...
I want Mikael to know how proud I am of him and how honored I am to be his wife (insert tear). Not many people get the opportunity to live out their dreams and he gets to live his for the next four and a half months!! WOW!!
Mikaila and I are really going to miss having Mikael around but fortunately we get to visit him along the way. We are meeting up with him in Chicago, IL and staying until Atlanta, GA which will be fun. I've always wanted to visit NY and Boston to name a few. Maybe I'll even get to mark some wishes off my dreamboard! We'll keep you posted of how we're coping without him and what kind of trouble we are getting ourselves into. Also please check out Mikael's blog at http://www.12000mileride.blogspot.com/
We love you Mikael, Dave, Trish and Kandis
