Just off the phone with Dan. He left Paul to forge ahead towards Glasgow, where he has a motivational talk planned. 12 miles out of Inverness he met up with some other cyclists who gave him some really bad information and directions (see he ditched a lot of maps cause Paul had them). They sent him in the direction of Aberdeen. As he was coasting downhill he figured something was wrong...and ended up going village to village looking for a place to stay until he decided to bag it and head BACK 30 miles uphill to Inverness. When he got there he had to decide. He had to choose to go the extra 20 miles, to put him back on schedule, without food, water and shelter or head back 7 miles. He headed back 7 miles for food and water. (smart one!)

He needs to get to Glasgow by Monday, and he is behind now.

Here is the situation:

He needs to get rid of some weight on his bike. He has been sending things home to lighten his load, as the 80 plus pounds and the hills and wind is untenable. He wants to send his new front panniers ($100plus) home, but he has to wait to get to the post office which will open later than he wants and puts him behind it will cost him about $50.00 to ship them home.

Is there anyone out there who is willing to sponsor him by paying to ship home his panniers?

Please contact me ASAP if you are, so we can get him back on the road.
