Saturday, November 27th:  This morning we got everything ready to move and get started on our way to Arizona to finish my bike ride.  Unfortunately, when we started up the motorhome we discovered we were having a transmission problem.  We will not be able to have it worked on until Monday morning.  Will let you know when we are ready to start out again.  Until next time . . .

Friday, November 26th:  I have made great progress in my recovery from my accident.  It has been a little more than 8 weeks now and tomorrow morning we will drive out to Arizona to continue my 10,000 mile bicycle ride around the United States to help in the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma.  My ride was put on hold in Tucson, Arizona after my accident on 24 September.  I am not sure exactly where we will resume the ride from, but expect it to be north of Tempe, AZ.  That will take me on other roads avoiding riding on the Interstate highway.  I will keep you informed of my progress as I finish the last chapter of this ride.  I will pick up my ride at 9,646 miles.  I am sure that by the time I get back to the start of my ride in Seal Beach, CA I will have ridden more than my goal of 10,000 miles.  A total of $4,120 has been donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society so far by you, my fans, friends and family.  Donations can still be made by visiting http://www.gsf.lls.llsevent.org/JACOBSONEXPRESS.  Until next time . . .

Saturday, 20 November:  Everything is going well.  I visited the doctor the other day and found my fractures are healing well.  My lung has fully inflated and I was informed that I should be able to do anything that does not cause pain.  Since my last post I have cycled 39 miles.  Most of my rides have been to visit my mom during her recovery from her broken hip.   My wife, Judy is anxious for me to complete my 10,000 ride around the country.  She wants me to finish it before the end of the year so that we can get on with other things in our life.  I took the bike that I had my accident on to the bike shop.  The obvious damage was done to the front brakes.  They will check the bike for any other possible damage.  I will let you know when we have a date to finish this ride.  Donations to the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society can still be made by visiting http://www.gsf.lls.llsevent.org/JACOBSONEXPRESS.    Until next time . . .

Thursday, November 11th:  It has been a while since I last updated my post.  I have been doing more bike riding,  Mostly local rides and not too difficult.  Since the last post I have cycled 146 miles with my longest ride being 45 miles.  A lot of my rides are with my bike club.  I usually ride about 6 miles to the starting point at Liberty Park in Cerritos.  On this day we rode down the San Gabriel River Bike Trail to the Pacific Ocean.  This island looks like an oasis but is actually an oil drilling platform.  Our ride continued to Long Beach for breakfast.  After breakfast I rode part way back with them until I was close to the area where my mom is still recovering in the nursing home.  She will be going home this weekend.  My mom does not live very far from me so I will still be able to visit her when she gets home.

  This last weekend was spent in Solvang, CA where my bike club, SCORccc was having one of  two rides that they put on every year.  This one is the Solvang Prelude which has 3 ride levels.  A metric century, a 50 mile and a 25 mile mile ride.  We had close to 2,000 riders sign up for this weekend.  Judy and I helped out at the sign up area on Friday, then Saturday morning we helped out at one of the SAG stops (rest area).  We had water, fruit, and cookies at each of the SAG stops to help the riders complete their ride.  My sister Laurie lives in Solvang and we met her and her husband, Trevor for dinner Saturday night.  Monday I will be seeing my doctor at the VA hospital.  Hopefully they will tell me my bones are healing up nicely and let me know how soon I can attempt to finish my ride.  Remember that this ride is to raise money and awareness in the fight against Leukemia and Lymphoma and donations can still be made by visitin g http://www.gsf.lls.llsevent.org/JACOBSONEXPRESS.  Until next time . . .Remember to wear your helmet . . . .
