Southern Route Coordinator News – June 2021

RFTW XXXII 2021 RC Newsletter

June, 2021

 

Greetings Everyone,

While it was Great riding across this Wonderful Country of Ours, it Good to be back home in Nevada.  Confetti and I just returned yesterday after 20 days, 6,896 miles, over 20 states on the road.  Along the way we visited with many of our Southern Route supporters and pledged to return in 2022 with ALL of You SR Riders.  We were also to present $1,000 Educational Grant checks to the 3 high school senior winners of our Southern Route essay contest.   I will post pictures in my next newsletter.  You will be pleased to know that your contributions will further the education of a future doctor and 2 engineers.

It was heartwarming to see how many of you made it to the Vietnam Memorial “Sister Wall” in Perryville, MO and the Middle East Conflicts Memorial Wall in Marseilles, IL.  My hat is off to those of you who went from LA to DC.

Most of you are home now safely, I hope.  All I heard of is some tire issues and broken parts.  Oh, and some sunburn and something I’d never heard of before “rainburn”.  I’m not sure how you get it or treat it.  Hopefully all will recover.

Now it’s time to embrace the  Reunion Season.  I have talked a lot about The Kerrville, TX Reunion, but first comes the “Sunbright Veterans Memorial Tour of Honor” in Tennessee. The Midway Route folks have been working day and night to put this together for ALL RFTW Riders.  I hear tell that there is a massive fireworks show planned for July 4th.  The link below has a ton of details.  Check it out and SIGN UP right away.

 

Stay Safe, Stay Healthy, Stay Positive
