2. If you or someone you know lives near his route try and put him up!

I look forward to following his blog and plan to be on hand as he plunges into the ocean... Maybe I can even run with him for a little while...

Greetings Thomas or AKA Georgia Snail,
I just found your blog but have noticed your comments on a few other blogs that I follow. I am looking forward to reading more:) Have a great weekend!

you ARE gonna let him crash at your house, yes? 'Cause anyone who is such a humanitarian will likely not steal the silver or saw your head off in your sleep.

I can't guarantee his good behavior, however, so don't come crying to me when you're all silverless and beheaded.
