I have decided to make a new deadline. The new deadline is 08/08/08. Tell me if you think this is a good idea. I'm on the road right now so I don't have much time to write. My new sponsor Divx is going to make this possible. I'm thinking about getting Verizon wireless or T Mobil wireless so that I can have better access to the Internet when I'm on the road. You maybe asking yourself why do I need to be on the road so much. Well I'm going to film festivals trying to network and get leads for my documentary. I believe that the film is going to raise a lot of funds for the 8 wishes project. Please tell me what you think of the new deadline. Take care, Paul

I'll be hope'ing for you man. You doing a good thing and I'm very proud of yea. Plus not many ppl do things pure to the soul like that and its pretty neat. seeing the world almost.
What started as a good idea ended in a internet circus. You got your 15 minutes of fame, time to move on.
yes, I think you should keep going.
But if you do extend it that far in the future, you gotta raise the stakes... both on your goals and on your investment. Either another loop of America or something new but equivalently difficult (all 50 states or 100 cities or something like that). Thats the kind of stuff that gets people's attention. good luck.
I just don't know what to say! I watched the video today and I was amazed.. everything you're doing is incredible!
The most important thing is to find someone or some organization that is capable of giving you a big spotlight and spinning it well. Finding people who will cheer for you and hope for you would be easy in a perfect world, you have an amazing spirit and drive. But this world is not perfect and you now have to find someone who will be able to take what you do, what you have to say, and most importantly your amazing spirit and share it with everyone in a way that reaches them.
Your initial YouTube.com video, while it captures your amazing spirit lacks the ability to draw and captivate an audiance. Trying to find a dedicated and talented group of filmakers to follow you on perhaps another SoloRide and make a powerful film is definately a step in the right direction. Keep at it man, keep trying differnt angles and don't give up, even when you can't meet your goals right away or miss a few deadlines. Eventually you will get your break, but even if you don't you will have touched many people's lives along the way.
If you think you can stay with it until that deadline you should definitively go for it. The fact that you are working so hard for other people is what is so amazing and attracive and gets people involved. So don't listen to people who tell you to stop or give you ideas of what your goals "should" be. Just make sure you set goals you can achieve.
Hey Paul, Keep up the good work. Think of all the people this will benefit and thank you to Divx for sponsering you to make this all happen. This is one wish I hope will come true if not only for you but for all those you will be helping.
Hey Paul I think it's great what you are doing, i'm from Argentina the video really touched me. The only reason I have for not moving the deadline, it's that you start delaying things. so what I would do is to move the deadline, but work on it like it was still 03-08-07 so you don't relax about the times, just an idea =P
Wish you the best
Definitely extend the deadline... I mean the challenge aspect of it is pretty interesting, but the important part is achieving what you want to achieve... regardless of when, if you get it done, you can celebrate that fact, even if its 09/10/11
keep up the good work, pretty incredible what you've done
I saw this on your other blog, but I think you should post your
wishes on Robin Hood Fund. I think you'll find a lot of like minded people on the site that want to do good like you're doing. Best of luck.
Yeah I never seen any of this before yesterday 03/22/07 too bad. Anyway I did however write to Oprah in hopes that if people write to her she would be more inclided to meet with you. She does have a lot of pull with the public. One little interview with her and your million would be raised in probably a week or less.
Dear Paul . . .
I was late to learning of your mission. I only discovered your dream yesterday. Nevertheless, I was compelled to write a missive. I offer a link to Eight Wishes. Ten Thousand Miles. Pedaling For Dyslexia http://bethink.org/showDiary.do?diaryId=453 . . . as my comment. My closing remarks might be of interest to you. I offer these here. I thank you Paul for reminding us, we can dream supposed impossible dreams. We are able to tilt at windmills and give birth to the best. Classifications need not be our fate. Only when we accept these labels do we, and society as a whole, lose. When we allow others to impose descriptions that then define us, we are defeated. To be honest Paul, I wonder. Who among us is not dyslexic., I suspect we are all impaired when working with words or symbols. Attention Deficit Disorder is another humbling nomenclature. The brain takes in far more information than any of us can address. Might the diagnosis have more of an effect. Could it be that labels deter learning. Perchance, if we worked to battle the tendency to accept these characterizations life would be better for everyone. Once you label me, you negate me. ~ Soren Kierkegaard [Danish Philosopher] Betsy L.

Hey Paul! I was bummed to see that your 8 wishes were not met in 30 days... I personally think extending the deadline is bit risky - a bit like Jehova Witnesses and predicting the end of the world... but then again, you do need a time limit in a way. Like R said, raise the stakes! I heard a millionaire say that it is easier to raise $10 million then $1 million! Also, that there is less competition for the higher goals, because everyone is settling for less. So go bigger!!!! If you fail - you just might do better then if you had succeeded with smaller goals! Long time no talk. Keep it up!
Keep Riding Pual! You know a true dyslexic like you, never gives up! Life is a journey(a series of circles within circles) and like any journey let the path grow out of the project. It will come together for you. You have our support fully!

is not just a maker of handbags and Purses, Coach Outlet also manufacture quality leather belts, wallets and even shoes among other things. However Coach Poppy and purses themselves are very popular because women love the brand, not just because it is a designer brand that will signify a high sense of style anywhere in the world, but because Coach Luggage also very well made and durable. Therefore one good buy will last you for a long time. Coach Hamptons Browsing various boutiques and shops to buy is fun, but sometimes we cannot take out the time to do so. And when you want something as coveted as a chanel watches , we cannot simply leave Chanel bags till you have the time. The easiest solution to this problem is to buy your favorite replica Chanel handbags online! Chanel
