Cub Scout Wheels Day

I was invited to speak to some Cub Scouts today about the expedition and perseverance. Speaking to young kids can be challenging. It is sometime difficult to tell how much they are listening. But I think things went well. They were engaged and had a lot of good questions.

Afterwards I talked with my sister-in-law, Christine. She was telling me how the kids in school were all following the expedition to the South Pole. One kid would go home and tell his mom how Christine's brother was biking to the South Pole. His mom did not believe him, so she came to school and talked to Christine and learned that it was true. The kid is now really into biking, something he can do to keep active the rest of his life.

Then I was talking to a lady who didn't think she was in good enough shape to start biking. We talked for awhile and she has decided to start biking to get into shape. If I can help just one person then the expedition was worthwhile.
