Thank you for your donation

Hello Everyone,
We made close to 4K on our trip alone, that does not include the donations that were pledged through this web page! Hope everyone had a great time and if you look at our page you will see we surpassed our goal. Yes, it took 2 years but we made it! Next year we will do it in 4 months!

Thank you all who participated in the ride, great memories made, friendships started, old friends reconnected. If you were there, AWESOME!! is not a word that does the experience justice. If there were some of you sitting on the fence, trust me, it is worth every minute that you commit. For those of you that could only buy a shirt, or made a donation, thank you very much. It is going to be hard to top next year but we have a tradition to continue to get better. Until next year, never forget those that have paid the ultimate price for us to continue
with what we love to do.

Please send my page on to anyone who might like to donate!
