Somehow summer is already drawing to a close. School buses are driving by, parents are posting first day of school pictures, and Design Outreach’s summer interns have completed their work and returned to their respective universities.
Edison shared these words of gratitude with Project Engineer Daniel Wang during a LifePump™ installation in his community. He was referring to the fact that the dry season in Zimbabwe is coming soon. In the past, the community would run out of water or drink dirty water to survive.
Hear the stories from the field with the Design Outreach Team who recently returned from Zimbabwe – their impressions, experiences and impact.
Today was a fun day of meeting friends from Sawyer, KS, along the Transamerica Bicycle Trail. Three different families met us at different times, with children from two of the families waving posters of encouragement.
The weather was very rainy in the morning, but the rain cleared in early afternoon and became a very pleasant day, in spite of a mild headwind most of the day.
Today was a day of excellent weather as I pedaled from Sugar City, CO to Tribune, KS, (115.46 miles according to Strava). I had a tailwind for a while, but had headwinds most of the day. The temperature was perfect… not too hot and not too cold.
Today (Tuesday) was a beautiful day to ride from Canon City, CO, to Sugar City, CO, with very comfortable temperatures and a slight headwind. I arrived safely in Sugar City at 7:15 PM after riding 118.69 miles, according to Strava.
Rebecca and I made it safely to Silverthorne, CO, Saturday evening at about 6:45 PM and met my brother, Laban, and Deanna there. We drove to their house in Denver and enjoyed a rest day on Sunday with them.
Tonight we reached Rand, CO, on schedule! Today was a shorter ride than usual (90.16 miles according to Strava) due to riding an extra 20 miles yesterday.
Day 4 was another very good day, but had a lot of interesting twists and turns.
