unfortunate trip interuption

Hello all, some unfortunate news. i was unable to continue my ride down the east coast back to kaohsiung. I had headed out from taipei on the 26th and spent the first day climbing a mountain that separates the east and west coast. made it to the top and somehow ended up riding back down the same side of the mountain. this mistake would have cost me at least one extra day if not 2 and my money was not enough to be able to keep riding for one or two extra days. In hindsight poor planning on my part cost me some time and i did spend too much time in taipei over the holidays.
I apologize to everyone who supported this ride and will be returning the money to those who donated. all is i can say is my intentions were full hearted and they still are. wombbloc still needs help and is still doing many good things that we all can benefit from.
The good news is Kayla is still riding. she was to meet me in Taipei and ride back with me. she arrived a day later and is riding back down to kaohsiung. so the trip will be completed and i will continue to post her story on the blog.
thanks to all who are with us as people who want to to make kaohsiung a more culturally rich place to live.
love, john


因為我個人不甚嚴謹的計畫疏失,這次的環島計畫我將無法以個人之力獨自完成。

本人原定在12月26號從台北出發,預計越過北部一座縱貫於台灣東西岸之間的山脈,繼而由台灣東岸的路線騎回高雄。不料我在下山的路程中,陰錯陽差地騎回來時路,嚴重的延誤了原先預定之行程。在這延誤之下,我沒有足夠剩餘的旅費來準時完成剩下的路程。因次,我決定中止我個人本次的環島計畫。在此向所有關心以及支持這個計畫的朋友,至上我個人最誠摯的歉意!

在此,我將陸續退回所有在此環島計畫中募得的款項。(募款機制也將立即關閉,再次致上最高歉意!)

另外,原定將與我一起從台北、經由東岸回到高雄的友人Kayla,目前正從台北向東南下當中。我將會持續地於此報告她的行程與經過。

在此,再次的感謝所有關心這份計劃的朋友們!

子宮藝文也將會持續的努力,為高雄的藝文環境,帶來更多的貢獻。

John O'Meara.

Hey as well John. You've already put in LOTS of effort with LOTS of good intention and sweat!!!! I made a contribution earlier and don't want it returned for sure. Good luck to Kayla as well- Michael Egan (goodsoundz.com)
