I am riding Coast-to-Coast for the 4th time in support of the Half-Homeless, people who have lost their homes
and are living in their cars. Your support of TJAA is vital to
tens of thousands of new American Middle Class Homeless.
Thank You!

Greetings Everyone,

I am off the road for a few days. My intestinal problems and killer headache came back Monday morning. Dad took me to the ER and they couldn't figure out what is wrong so they checked me into the hospital here in Richmond Virginia. I spent my first night in my whole life in the hospital.

They are taking really good care of me but this is no fun! They wake me up to check my vitals every few hours and have taken my blood for testing 7 or 8 times. They have an IV in each arm.

They finally found out what I have it's an infection called C.Diff that usually only old people or folks who have been in a hospital get. But a few cases like mine of young healthy people have started getting it. They have me in a private room in isolation and are giving me a special antibiotic that should knock it out in a few days.

Thank God for WiFi, my tablet and Netflix, daytime TV would drive me mad. They are keeping me for a bit longer but I will be up and on the bike again soon!

Please include me in your prayers.

Bye for Now

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share my TJAA Facebook post from today with you in case you didn't see it.

Holy Weather Challenge!

www.today.com/video/today/53754058

After more than 2,800 miles of cycling and 3 months on the road it is only 219 miles to Washington D.C. And I have a major weather event trying to stop me.

Dad was really concerned and considering just driving the rest of the way. Then he read his Today's Scripture; "I will lift up my eyes to the hills "” from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth." (Psalm 121:1"“2) and realized that as we lift up our eyes to the coming hills, (the Appalachian mountains and toughest part of the ride), we need to look to God to help us.

So today I ask all of you to not just pray for us, but to ask your friends to pray for us, call your friends and ministers and ask them to pray for us. Ask to have the safe completion on this leg of my journey mentioned and prayed over in your church.

And let me know what you have done here on our page. It is your support and prayers that have gotten me this far, I need you now more than ever.

We have 360 Likes on our page right now, like the degrees of a full circle, each of you have been an important part of this mission. I am so grateful to you all, you are helping me help the new American Middle Class homeless, the Half-Homeless. God Bless You All!

As my friends and most committed supporters I ask you all to hear this request and do what you can. Again I am so grateful to all of you.

Bye for Now
Thomas

Greetings Everyone,
Just a quick update on my ride, I am in Cincinnati Ohio! Only about 600 more miles to Washington D.C.

It's getting colder and wetter and that sure makes cycling harder. They are saying it will only get up to 29 degrees Sunday and down to 12 degrees Sunday night, burrrrr!!! But I have great gear and am doing OK.

I have about 200 miles of rolling hills through Ohio and then it's the Appalachian Mountains of West Virginia. To tell you the truth I find them harder than either the Sierras or the Rockies Mountains. I know that seems strange, being so much shorter but that are extremely steep and the climbs are just long enough to really wear on you and then there is another one "¦ seeming forever! Last year there was snow on the ground on the higher parts, sure hope that isn't the case this year.

Thank you so much for supporting me on my ride, without your help this would not be possible. Everywhere we go there are still more Half-Homeless than the year before. Your generosity is allowing me to bring attention to their plight and get Congress to help them.

Thanks Again and God Bless You!

Thomas
