Our 10th day. Today we ride into D.C.
It’s another great and safe ride; good weather & wonderful visits. Our group has grown to near 100 riders. Police escorts have insured our safe passage from Illinois, through Indiana, and across Ohio to West Virginia. It’s bittersweet that I’m now hauling my bike since Iowa, but for three years I’ve looked forward to presenting my book, Harley Tracks, at Thunder Alley during Rolling Thunder. So, the bike’s tied down with a ton and a half of books.
Included in our mission is to seek out Gulf War Veterans at each stop; at hotels, restaurants, hospitals & hotels, or gas stops. Our Vietnam Veterans did not receive the recognition they deserved when they came home from their war, and to insure that never happens again, when we find veterans who’ve served in the war on terror, we present them with a medal of recognition for their service.
