The Silver Comet Trail used to be a rail line that went from Atlanta to Alabama. As with much of life, it passed its usefulness and ended up abandoned. But it was redone as a biking trail, and is now an outdoors destination for the ATL. Like Wolfgang and a dashing (if unconventionally dressed) companion.
I'm keen to see how much we all raised - so far it looks like it's a little off from last year's total. That would be a shame. All month Jay, and Kelly, and all the Teams have put their dignity aside for a good cause. I've found that it's been a wonderful experience, better than I had imagined.

This disease is cruel in what it does to the body; any military organization that did even a fraction of this to a prisoner would be guilty of war crimes.The cancer took Dad, and I'm still a little p***ed about that. The fact that so many of you have donated means more than I can say. For those who haven't, there's still another day left - it would be great to beat last year's total. Remember, if you donate $24 via Team Borepatch, you'll get an autographed copy of my sister-from-another-mother Brigid's amazing Book Of Barkley.
Anger is one of the Seven Deadly Sins, deserving an entire ring of Hell in The Inferno.
Bless me, Father, for I have sinned ...
