    Dear Friends:
    I am just uploading the last of about forty videos that I was so far behind on getting up onto the website http://www.akha.org and http://youtube.com/akhazauh

    Enjoy them, we are in winter, most days are cold travel days, some shorter, some longer, ice and threats of snow.

    We are in Murfreesboro, Tennessee taking a Christmas and New Years break, getting new shoes built for Hampton, and visiting friends like the child actor Zach Mills whom we have come to know. We spent Christmas with his family and the kids all played together.

    We have 894 miles left to go to New York.
    Yes, we are counting down.

    Right now we need diesel fuel and propane, give us a helping hand, you can make a difference in our work.
    Hampton the horse is fat and sassy, the kids are all fine, road and journey veterans, able to cope with quite a few events.

    We look at least another 50 days of travel to reach new york as the winter breaks, dodging snow and icy roads where we can.

    I hope you are all well and having a good year end season.
    Matthew McDaniel
