Talk about an Epic bike ride and lifetime experience! Go Dot! Go Hannah!

Today I am living my life - and my blog - vicariously through someone else!

Actually through two someone elses.

I have not been able to stop thinking about this since yesterday, when I spoke over the phone with Dot, owner of our local Sawmill Pottery here in Putnam.

She is on a cross country bicycle trip with her friend Hannah.

Did you just read that, stop for a minute, think about it, really comprehend what it takes to stop your life and do something like this?

Wow. WOW.  WOW!!!

Physically - you are riding a bicycle across the country, in the elements, in unfamiliar territory, without your usual comforts of home.

You set aside your work life or leave your business in the hands of someone else. 



Previously I have experienced such journeys in literature in books such as "The Memory of Running", "The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry", and "The Road to Grace" to name a few, and of course the now classic film "Forrest Gump". They were all emotional and thought provoking, but they were literature.

This is real - real people that live where I live. You see them around!

I will not divulge all the stories that have transpired on Dot and Hannah's journey. I will let you read and follow along with them in Hannah's blog. I urge you to read it all here. 

People are amazing and inspiring for a million reasons! WOW!

I am a Putnamaniac that is amazed at what people do!
