How to Follow Us on The #RickshawRun

9 Comments 03 April 2014


Starts Sunday April 6th, 2014

This Sunday we say bon voyage to what slice of normalcy we have created for our selves in India so far and hop in our Rickshaw to travel Northeast towards Shillong (nearly in India).  You’ve heard me rattle on about this Rickshaw Run 2014 race for months and beg you all for money for our charity.  But now it’s here.

We got our first glimpse of our mechanical turd this week and we are now starting the comical process of learning how to drive it in a little plot of land surrounded by fences.  I wonder if the fences and security is to protect us or them – I’m not sure.  We are in the process of also getting supplies we may need such as tarps, bungee cords, and the appropriate Indian Hindu Gods to place lovingly on our dash.

How to Follow Along

After a day of ridiculous butt numbing rickshaw driving – I will look forward to your comments to keep me going.  So please join along. How can you follow us on this 2 week adventure?  There are many, many ways…pick your poison and follow along.

Are we Ready?  Judge for Yourselves

We put together a short little video about our first thoughts and plans about the race we are about to undertake, our fears, predictions, and (lack of) planning & mechanical skills.

Yes, we are really going to do this.  Sunday we put putt putt off in a blaze of glory…that will resemble exhaust smoke.

      Thanks Gretchen! Yes – early mornings are again in my future…and some very long days! Thanks for following! We were so thrilled with the money that Iolani raised on our campaign behalf. It’s given us a lot of drive to make it to the finish!
