I am very impressed. A friend of a friend (and possible future employer? hehe) is planning to ride a Vespa across Europe to raise money for cancer research/awareness. I so admire anyone who has the guts to get off their arse to actively make a difference, as I rarely make it off the couch. Apparently, he is getting sponsorship for this epic feat and I'll post details of his blog/website when it's up and running so we can all support him in this worthwhile endeavour. You can keep track of where he's at and buy him a beer if he's passing through your town in Europe.
Tumbleweed and I were thinking about trying to get sponsorship for our Trans-Siberian V to V journey, but, as Tw so aptly pointed out, that was just to fund our vodka intake and to impress fit men with furry hats. I feel so shallow.
(Willie, perhaps a PayPal link for donations on your site too?)
