    FNG here, joining up in Albuquerque, N.M. with the Midway Route. As I attempt to digest all of the information on this site, I can’t help but admire and appreciate all the hard work you volunteers put in.  This Mission could not be completed without you folks.  I know I am “ Preaching to The Choir” here in expressing my Thanks……but WOW…. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You.  I plan on participating next year, and will definitely volunteer to help in whatever fashion I might be needed.  To ride/participate with all The Veterans, as well as those of us who support as non-Veterans will be an Honor. Can’t wait to stand alongside all of you Fine Folks.

    GW,

    WELCOME to the greatest family you never knew you had. Thank your wife for her service and  WELCOME HOME.

    THANK YOU,and her, for your sacrifice.

    Be prepared to be welcomed with open arms, literally, from complete strangers, ( until you meet them), the open arms will envelope you into many many hugs.

    If it is at all possible and it will fit into your schedule…you are so close to Ontario, consider starting in California!!!! a rag tag group calling themselves “Hoofers Hooligans” will be coming through your area, on their way to Ontario, they have posted on the forum, at least Think about it….I will be looking for you. ( With a HUGE bear hug)(either in CA or NM)

    Howdy GW!  As a fellow non-Veteran and ALSO on the Midway Route, be sure to find me in ABQ.  I want to shake your hand and tell you “Welcome to the Family!”

    Cheers!
