Inner Monologue Ep. 10 - Zak Chipps pt. 2 - Arizona






Zak at Arizona State Border, leaving California.
Zak Chipps returns for this week's episode to continue the saga of the 2012 RISE bicycle tour.  What started with an awesome community event in Santa Cruz was quickly followed by disappointing guest attendance and participation, but with unexpected gifts.  Zak and I reflect on the mediocre support in our home turf of Arizona. We also touch on the subjects of oral surgery, transcendence through gong baths and finding the inspiration, from the movie Lord of the Rings, to keep moving forward.
