Krankin Thru China Trip Update (10-3-2013)

Ok, so my PLAN was to update each day for the final week before I hopped on the plane on my way to the land of the Orient. BUUUUTTTT, the powers that be had another plan and decided to call me sick for a few days with a fever and monster headache. I resisted a doctors visit and even Urgent Care, but upped my water intake a bunch and downed Emergen-C's and dried cranberries like it was my job. So I have missed a few days of updating you all on the progress I have made leading up to this epic voyage I am about to depart on.

Skydive Boogie - DeLand, FL

With a very, very early morning ride from a good friend to Grand Rapids Airport in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I quickly made my way through the self check in at the Delta Airlines counter and up to Starbucks for a bit of food and a coffee. After my pit stop to put something in my stomach,

Krankin Thru China Trip Update (9-26-2013)

So, I am down to less than 2 weeks before I embark on a trip of a lifetime – 11 days to be exact – and I am very excited, nervous, happy, scared and so many thoughts and emotions all wrapped into one. My head is already spinning and there are still many days until I fly out. I am so taken aback by all of the support from people and organizations. I have even had the pleasure of chatting with (over Skype) some of the people I will be spending a good amount of my time with in China. Looks like I will definitely be returning with great new friendships.

Dive Pirates Out Brac - Cayman Islands 2009

After a 7-day crash course in SCUBA diving at Adventure Scuba in Plano, TX under the excellent instruction of dive master and instructor Rodney Marshall, I was certified and ready to do my first big water dives. I made my way through the tests, the pool dives, and the lake dives. I am now Handicap SCUBA Association (HSA) Class A Certified!

Krankin Thru China Trip Update (9-19-2013)

This last week has been a great one. Been “present week” for me. My sponsors have gone above and beyond to set me up with the best gear. So far this week I have gotten my 65 litre pack, 2 sleeping bags, and a 2-man tent from the guys at Ledge Sports. I have gotten a new Tension Adjustable Backrest from Supracor, to replace my worn out and well used one. I have gotten a new set of coil-over shocks for my chair from Box Wheelchairs. Items from Frog Legs, Inc., Kenda Tires, and a couple others are still to come. I cannot thank my sponsors enough for how generous they have been. It is par for the course over my relationship with all of them.

Accessible Racing

In June of 2008, I was chosen to be one of eight "celebrity drivers" for the Accessible Racing program. We all got together in Andover, Massachusetts for our "Skid School" training on the first day. We were instructed in Emergency Braking, Slalom, and Navigating an Auto-Cross Course. Then the crew all headed on to Woodstock, New Hampshire for a day on the track at the White Mountain Racetrack.
