It's been only five days, and thus far ya'll have donated over two thousand dollars ($2005, to be exact) to Chux "Hell on wheels 2K8" tour. Thank you all so much for giving so generously.
I have also started the "From My Position... on the way!" team, so that anyone else riding in the tour can, well, do whatever a bike team does.
P.S. There is even the ability to donate "in memory of" or "in honor of" which shows up in a scroll on the main page and the donations pages.
