You are still on my bookmarks from your last journey so I was surprized when
I saw you were half way to France. I will be watching and praying for you to
complete your journey. From a fellow Louisvillian

Dear Tori,
I am a lawyer too,employed by the Commonwealth of
Virginia,Chesterfield County,as an assistant prosecutor.I tend to enjoy
non-lawyer types as people,more,as they tend to be more interesting and more
down to earth.I read about your adventures offered by link through the
Virginia Pilot(Norfolk,Va newspaper).Firstly,while I'm not as religious as I
should be,one of my "Other People Prayers" is that you are protected in your
undertaking,and that you remain strong,and aware of God's
presence.Secondly,I hope one day you'll visit our state(no,I don't get
kickbacks from the Department of Tourism)and tell us about your experiences
on the ocean.

At the boathouse and on the river this summer I often think of
you. Last summer and fall, all the times we were out rowing and you
were working out in your single; racing along beside our four; the
American Pearl missing from the boathouse;erging on Monday nights
during the winter. With good luck at your side, I've never doubted you could
achieve this goal. It will be great to have you back at LRC. Best of
luck to you Tori. Scarlett

Wish you could give us a few comments on Tori occasionally.
She must be having a hard time the last couple of days since it seems
she is loosing distance
I enjoy your page.
John Keplinger
It's a lot of work updating the maps and guestbook every day before I go to
work ;0) (N.Cal. contractor). I will try to do a weekly commentary about what's
happening weather wise out there for Tori... I too share all of our frustration that
Tori has been unable to e-mail us her wonderfull log entries. (ORS-Tom Lynch)
