8/9/09 -- Yahoo!! Wow, we made it to Virginia Beach VA!! That afternoon there was a heat advisory as we biked up Atlantic Ave to the 24th street access to the boardwalk on Sunday, 9 Aug @ 6 PM. We were amazed by the reception we received with cheers, laughter and lots of smiling faces of family, friends, the NAS Oceana Boys and Girls Club, First Command, FOX43 TV news crew and NAS Oceana base paper, Jet Observer. Our arrival celebration included the ceremonial wheel dipping, pouring water that we carried from the Pacific Ocean into the Atlantic and a few words of thanks; to include lots of hugs, laughs, and congratulations!! Afterwards we finished up by meeting at Murphy's Restraunt for drinks and dinner. It was a great way to end an epic journey that had started 43 days ago and some 3,900 miles. Our many thanks to family, friends, sponsors, donors, and the great folks across America who made this charity bike ride a complete success for meeting our goal and raising monies and awareness for the Wounded Warrior Project and the Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Thank you all for your support and generosity!!

8/6/09 -- We had a very warm reception when we arrived at 1600 on 6Aug09. The Roanoke Boys and Girls club youth were outside holding signs when we arrived. They were really excited that we were there. We talked about our trip and what it takes to make something like this successful. We also talked about safety and goal setting. Afterwards we had a Skype teleconference with the B&G at Oceana NAS. We will be visiting them next Monday. They are going to have a luncheon for us. The last 1/2 hour the boys signed autographs and played games with kids. We all had a really great time!! Thanks you all are AWESOME!! Tyrell McElroy and his staff are doing a great job!!
