DownTheRoad.org's RoadNews Newsletter: NPR Mp3 radio interview, Newspaper coverage, and one dead computer
May 31, 2009 (Sent From Delores, Colorado, USA)

First, because I know video and audio files are popular, when we have them, I want to provide the link to our latest radio interview with KNAU/NPR Flagstaff, Arizona - Morning Edition. 

MP3 Audio:
http://www.prescottyellowpages.com/Video/MP3/KNAU_Flagstaff_Arizona.MP3

Also we recently appeared in our home town newspaper.  The Daily Courier, Prescott Arizona, USA http://downtheroad.org/Publishing/Media/Prescott_Arizona_Bicycling_Couple_Recounts_Adventures.htm by Ken Hedler

I had a detailed newsletter written about the emotional experience with visiting our (rented) house and longtime friends in our hometown in Prescott, Arizona, USA but Cindie's 6 months old computer crashed and it was lost.  Other than my letter we lost all of our email contacts, Cindie's Utah journal and ongoing correspondence.  If you were waiting for an email from us we probably lost it and we ask you to please write again.  This is especially true for the film studio prospects and several future public appearances in the works including Colgate University in New York.  We still have all comments left on the Latest News Blog and our web content. We backed up our tax and bookkeeping files so those weren't lost. Cindie is happy about that. So this is something we can recover from but it is the lost email that is the most frustrating. 

We will keep working on Cindie's computer and try to retrieve her  Utah journal.
