ATTENTION:HELP!! If you happen to live somewhere along the coast of the PACIFIC OCEAN. Anywhere from Olympia to San Diego and can let a group of about 12-15 people sleep over, then contact me at mikeasianman@aol.com We have sleeping bags and can camp in your backyard. The situation is as follows:PLEA FOR PEACE BIKE TOUR is going to camp along the coast, but geeez, those campgrounds are a lot more expensive than I thought they would be.

Last night my body gave out on me. It felt like all systems go at first, but about 45 minutes into my ride I just felt exhausted. Perhaps I was dehydrated? Hungry? I'm not quite sure. I just know things didn't feel right. Crawling home I was starved and basically ate anything and everything in sight. Crashing out at around 10 PM.

Rise and shine at 7 AM, my back hurt and my body said "Please Mike, no ride today"....But I just finished up another grueling experience. Again, so tired.. WHY?? WHY?? Maybe this is all about the training and I just need to keep pushing myself. So, I will. I'm off to help my mom with some work.

My goodness people. I feel really out of it. My mind is spinning. So many thoughts on my mind. My optimistic outlook on life has questions. Am I doing the right thing? Do people care? Will society exist past the next century? Do you often have crazy thoughts like this? Hmmmm..... Maybe I need to eat some pizza.
Peace always,
Mike Park
