thanks
Cindy, My Mom gave me your website address after receiving it from you while she was staying at The Sweet Life. I looked around and landed on the Thomas Mangino story. I too, had a bracelet to wear when I was young. This story touched my heart like no other. Tears filled my eyes as I remember all the sacrifices these young men made. So, thanks for bringing me back to the reality of how wonderful our country is and for those that made it so. Have a blessed holiday season. I look forward to reading more about your travels.

Getting The Wall in your community
You probably need to google it for the correct info but from what I understand you pay for it to come. I'm sure they schedule you in according to their route thought. Garnett paid for it by using the hotel tourist taxes that had accumulated over the years. I think too that this is just the first expense. It looked like they had quite an investment in the landscaping since it requires such a long totally flat area to be errected. They put it up in Veterans Park which is not flat anywhere.

obtaining the memorial wall
HOW DOES A CITY OR COMMUNITY GO ABOUT OBTAINING THE MEMORIAL IN ONES CITY? WE JUST MISSED IT IN BRYSON CITY, NC. WHAT AN HONOR TO HAVE IT VISIT YOUR CITY.

Trip Info
I had heard about the Loneliest Hwy on the XL-List. Ride reports are really a big part of that list, to me anyway. I knew about the passport book because I had requested an info packet from NV tourism a couple months ago. It came with some motorcycle specific info, really a great packet for any biker headed that way. That is how I knew Hwy 93 was going to be such a great scenic ride too. It came with one of those passport booksfor Hwy 50 but I didn't take it with me because I thought I would returning along the old Route 66. But when Effie broke I ended up in Jackson.

How do you find out about all these neat rides and stamps! I wish I could get as much time to ride as you do! Alec

I've Been Everywhere Tour
I got 67 of the 91 (I think) locations. That was top for our group. Some of the locations are not available in the US. It was a local HOG Group challenge. We all got t-shirts with all the locations listed on the back. I think Terry got the idea from the internet. When I googled IBE I found the original game site, although it had not been updated for a couple years even back then.

Did I miss something?
Have you been having problems with the 883? You said you were scared it would not start.

Nice story
My daughter had a PP for a while. Vaquero had been used as a "teaser" and otherwise abused, and no one at the barn could ride him. My daughter, Sami, started loving on him while she was helping the trainer. Next thing you know, she had permission to take him out for walks, then rides. It broke her heart when the owner moved away and took Vaquero. M/C content - Sami is now riding a V-Star 650 while in college, and begging for my Sporty since we just bought a Heritage Softail Classic. I have enjoyed your posts on the Sportster boards, Cindy. Buck Hiltebeitel '04 XL883 "Piglet" '08 FLSTC "Jett" (bought during the Texas State HOG Rally, with Joan Jett as the concert headliner, and it's black!)

Are we going to be getting a new HD?
Well the HD I referred to in the blog is Home Depot (HD). I am just now getting Effie tweaked to fit. I would hate to start over. I thought she was pretty comfortable until the Not Superman Rally, I learned alot over that 54hours. One of them was how uncomfortable she is. (Don't tell Effie but I am kind of looking for a cheap low mileage ST1100. Shhhh. )

Cape Fear
Jim Bain is trying to get me to run in it in 2010. I might do it. Alec

Love AR
Hi Cindy! I too, LOVE riding in AR.. ever since the Spank Rally. I even purposely planned one of the legs of my NSR run back through AR. I agree, I feel that more Harley riders should have confidence in the current model's reliability and long-distance suitability to toss their hats into the IBR. I was sorry to hear about Bob L's exit from the rally, but at least it was a forest critter and not him or his Harley that caused his DNF. He was on a good ride up until then. For what it's worth, I'm planning on tossing my hat into the ring for the 2011 event on the same FLHT I had at the NSR (crash damaged mostly fixed and it's running as strong as ever)... Keep your fingers crossed ;)

Thanks!
Thanks Alec, this is one of my favorites. I have another old letter I wrote that ended up in our local HOG newsletter. I am going to see if I can find it. I think it was one of the first motorcycle stories of mine that was published.

Great daughter
Thanks for sharing. We have an older quarter horse that my little girl rides. Her and Becky (the horse) spend all day together.

Thanks for sharing. Riding horses has been recognized as great therapy. Also, I'm sure Dad appreciates his time with you.....and you with him is good for you too!
