Grasshoppers, More Prairie, and PSA Tracker Gone Wild

Pierre to Sioux Falls, SD – Lots of Prairie and More Grasshoppers

Another long, hot ride across the prairie.  The initial portion followed state 34 which runs along the Missouri River.  It was very picturesque and perfect riding conditions; not yet warm, light winds, and virtually no traffic.  I did, however, have another encounter of a grasshopper kind.  Another cleanup job.

The lack of traffic makes it easy to simply pull off on the shoulder and take pictures.  I’ve had these great riding conditions for the past 2,500 miles, but that will change soon as I move into the eastern states.

NBC and ABC are Tied in TV Coverage of the Tour de USA, with CBS in Second Place

I’m learning more about the timing for approaching TV stations about covering the ride. It seems that stations make their assignments early in the morning and need to have everything “in the can” by very early afternoon.

Given the tight constraints, I think we’re doing pretty well in generating TV coverage.  KSFY (ABC) did an interview with me at City Hall, and I spent a good hour this afternoon with the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.  There should be some good coverage over the next week.

The PSA Tracker is a Huge Hit

The PSA Tracker that can be downloaded from our website, http://www.29000men.org, “My PSA Tracker” tab, is proving to be a big hit.

Men immediately understand the value of tracking their PSA trend as soon as they see the graph on the tracker.

If you are tracking your PSA – and you should be if you are 35 or older, download and print a copy of the Tracker, enter the last three values and their respective dates.  If you see a change of approximately .75,

you should see your doctor immediately.

Remember, it is not the actual PSA value that tells the story, but the year-to-year change.
