Thank You! (Mike Langford)

Well the 2012 Ride for Miracles (Eating Across America) is in the books. We did better than last year and that’s a good thing. We did not get to the $1,000,000 mark so that’s a bad thing. I guess it will all have to happen again next year.

My Life Has Been Forever Changed (Pat Carpenter)

The 4th of May of this year 14 riders headed west from Columbus, Georgia and they had 4 tag along riders. This year it was a privilege that 4 of us previous riders were able to spend the 1st few days with the guys out on the road. We rode with the guys out to Amarillo, Texas. That had us riding the states of Georgia, Alabama, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana, Arkansas, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas. We also picked up Tennessee on the way home. Now what we cannot even be compared to what the 14 riders did. To get on your motorcycle and ride 21 straight days riding on average of 450 miles per day is an undertaking that most folks could not do. If anyone thinks these guys were on a vacation, let me assure you that they were not.

Mission Accomplished (Brad Hansen) [Day 21]

Mission accomplished! 14 riders, 48 states, 21 days. The projected mileage at this point was to be 8,423, the actual was 9,052. You all know about the few missed turns or changes in the route. We used 3,100 gallons of fuel between the 14 bikes. That does not count the 2 gallon can the Sheriff is carrying on his bike for “just in case”. The highest price we paid for fuel was $4.699/gallon in Alturas, Ca. We still have 375 miles to travel tomorrow to get home.
