Garry McGivern’s bike-ride to Australia-and-beyond Thursday, 31st-May-2012 still in Provo. I was still feeling a bit rough this morning, so I decided to air on the side of caution. And spend one more day in Provo. I’d also managed to break my travel adapter and couldn’t charge anything. Plus, the motel’s reasonably cheap and the young couple that run it are lovely. And have been checking in on me regularly.
It didn’t take long for my phone to drain with no charger. And my emergency charger was also flat. It was no good. I had to get moving and go and find a new adaptor.
I felt safe enough to venture out and buy a new adapter at about lunchtime. It took god knows how many shops I tried before finding the right adapter.
I’m feeling so much better tonight, but still, being cautious with what I eat. I don’t know what upset my stomach as I don’t remember eating anything different that would have upset it, which is a bit worrying! I’m not going to jinx things tonight, but hopefully, I’ll be in a different place tomorrow night!
Don’t forget the main reason behind my ride. I want to raise as much money for cancer research charities as possible. After my wife, Josie, died of breast cancer in 2007, aged only 42. Even the smallest donation helps. You can donate to Cancer Research UK or the Australian National Breast Cancer Foundation. Click on either one to donate. Every little bit helps to rid the world of this cruel disease.
