Special Thanks

We first want to thank our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We know it's against the rules to have a fourth person in the car but He was with us the entire trip, guiding and protecting us. Thank you Lord.

We each want to thank our wives for not only allowing us to make the trip, but being such an encouragement to us all. We could have never completed the trip and succeded without the support from the love of our lives. Thank you so much Sherry (Jay), Shay (Andrew) and Beth (Ted).

A special thanks to Russell and his crew at Enterprise for making the van available. It performed with excellence!

We want to thank our departing witnesses, State Farm agent Anita Wardwell and Spokane Statesman Review photographer Kathy Plonka for meeting us at the state line of Montana and Idaho. In addition, we want to thank our arriving witnesses, State Farm agent Michael Heyl and his wife Barbara for hanging around at the Vermont state line waiting. All of you guys were so wonderful to take time out for us.

And a very special thanks to WFAA Channel 8, WBAP, KRLD, The Dallas Morning News, The Ft. Worth Star Telegram, the Colleyville Courier and the Spokane Statesman Review for following the story and making it so much fun for us. We were so blessed to have you (literally) along with us on the trip. You all made is to much more fun for us.

And last, but not least, we want to thank all of you for your support. We loved getting your posts and emails, encouraging us the entire trip. We can't thank you enough for your kind words and your prayers.

Sincerely, Jay, Andrew and Ted

  1. Guys--I know you aren't sorry this event is over, but I am. Checking in on you has given me something to look forward to. I can't even fathom the preparation that must have been required to drive over 6,000 miles and arrive only 67 minutes off your estimated time. What an amazing accomplishment! I know you would give much credit to that 4th passenger.

  2. Just a quick comment. We've been following you here in Spokane but it's the Spokesman-Review not the Statesman-Review. Thought you'd want to know that.
