• Testimonial

  • “I was in an auto accident in 2005 in which I sustained third and fourth degree burns over 50% of my body. I was given a 3% chance of survival. The Firefighters Burn Institute has helped me immensely on my road to recovery. Had it not been for Cliff Haskell’s vision to bring a burn center to the Sacramento area there is a very likely little chance I would be here. I have been truly blessed to have the Firefighters Burn Institute, its staff and leadership, who have supported my recovery and given me the opportunity to give back to others going through circumstances similar to mine.” — Christopher Cvitanov

    Day 30
    Johnson city to Austin
    Sorry it's posting late but it has been non stop since I arrived.
    More of the green grass, trees and small country roads. Still thankful for the change in scenery from the first few hundred miles of Texas, lol. We said goodbye to the official Texas Hill Country by arriving in Austin. Not without a few more steep hills to climb. We met a couple who were on a self contained trip from Florida headed to San Diego, Frank and Susan from Georgia; super nice couple then we came across 2 young women from university of Texas who were training for the Texas 4000; a charity ride for cancer that runs from Austin to Anchorage Alaska! I climbed the steepest hill in Rollingwood, outskirts of Austin, among multimillion dollar homes, that I have ever rode. I considered walking it, but mr. Testosterone spoke up and I toughed it out, thankfully it was a very short hill. The days stats; 50 miles, 3hrs 12 min on saddle, 3800 feet of climb. Day 31 is an off day. Hope you all are well.
