Mission Accomplished

Mission Accomplished
I have now ridden on all 7 continents.
What an amazing experience. After a six hour flight we landed on an ice runway that was so slippery it was difficult to stand on. I was picked up by a Skidoo and we sped 5 miles to Glacier Union Camp where I took off many of my required layers of clothing and quickly went cycling with Tony, one of ALE's guides, and an avid cyclist. It was a great day to ride, the sun was out, 5 degrees, a slight wind and we heated up quickly.
I didn't think they would allow me to just head out on my own and I'm thankful they didn't. We were told we had a 3 hour window to ride. At some point Tony calls the plane and they are in a hurry to leave because of incoming weather and we have 30 minutes to get back to the plane. Obviously we hustled and make it. It would not have been fun to trapped on Antartica without the plane
Antartica is special. Pure, pristine, majestic.
I had heard Colin O'Brady (the first person to ever cross Antartica solo, unsupported) being interviewed and knew he would likely be on the plane returning to Chile. He had finished his trek on Nov. 26 but had been unable to leave the continent because of weather. Also there was Louis Rudd, the only other person to ever sole, unsupported who had finished on Nov. 28.
While waiting to board Tony points out Rudd and introduces me. He lost 17% of his body mass on his trip and we are having a chat when here comes O'Brady. If someone has his picture taken with Rudd then I must certainly want a picture taken with him. I'm wearing my M cycling jacket and turns out he is from Portland, Oregon and a football fan. He almost went to UofM, has seen a game at the Big House, been to Zingerman's, and knew Oregon had beaten MSU in their bowl game.
I don't know how to explain this, but these two are wildly impressed that I have ridden on all 7 continents and made a special trip just to cycle on Antartica. We are on the tarmac in Chile, O'Brady is the first to leave the bus and stands up, points to me and says "this man is a legend, he made a special trip to Antartica just to complete ridding on all seven continents".

Hi, My name is Eric and unlike a lot of emails you might get, I wanted to instead provide you with a word of encouragement – Congratulations What for? Part of my job is to check out websites and the work you’ve done with whereislance.com Webmaster definitely stands out. It’s clear you took building a website seriously and made a real investment of time and resources into making it top quality. There is, however, a catch… more accurately, a question… So when someone like me happens to find your site – maybe at the top of the search results (nice job BTW) or just through a random link, how do you know? More importantly, how do you make a connection with that person? Studies show that 7 out of 10 visitors don’t stick around – they’re there one second and then gone with the wind. Here’s a way to create INSTANT engagement that you may not have known about… Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know INSTANTLY that they’re interested – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally checking out whereislance.com. CLICK HERE http://rushleadgeneration.com to try out a Live Demo with Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works. It could be a game-changer for your business – and it gets even better… once you’ve captured their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature, you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation – immediately (and there’s literally a 100X difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes.) Plus then, even if you don’t close a deal right away, you can connect later on with text messages for new offers, content links, even just follow up notes to build a relationship. Everything I’ve just described is simple, easy, and effective. CLICK HERE http://rushleadgeneration.com to discover what Web Visitor can do for your business. You could be converting up to 100X more leads today! Eric PS: Web Visitor offers a FREE 14 days trial – and it even includes International Long Distance Calling.

To the whereislance.com Owner! my name’s Eric and for just a second, imagine this… - Someone does a search and winds up at whereislance.com. - They hang out for a minute to check it out. I’m interested… but… maybe… - And then they hit the back button and check out the other search results instead. - Bottom line – you got an eyeball, but nothing else to show for it. - There they go. This isn’t really your fault – it happens a LOT – studies show 7 out of 10 visitors to any site disappear without leaving a trace. But you CAN fix that. Web Visitors Into Leads is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number.

Plus, now that you have their phone number, with our new SMS Text With Lead feature you can automatically start a text (SMS) conversation… so even if you don’t close a deal then, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just how you doing? notes to build a relationship.
