Day 17-Scott Ressmeyer
Yes it’s been a couple of days since my last post. The last few days have been some long ones with about 500 miles each day. We have been in the saddle from about sunup to sundown. A lot has happened in the last two days. Wish I could remember it all. I’m starting to forget even what room I’m suppose to go to each night after dinner, they all start running together. It was a big Suprise running into Will White and his family from Columbus in South Bend Indiana, they were up for one of their daughters graduation from Notre Dane. We were all eating at the same restaurant. When Will walked in he noticed a bunch of bikes with logos on them from Columbus. We all did a group photo with all the guys and his graduate. I’m sure it was rough for her to stand around a bunch guys that had 16 days of road grime on them. Thanks for buying our lunch Will.
For the most part the group has been able to stay together the last few days. Which is a next to impossible when you consider how many of us there are. We picked up another Miracle Rider, Mike Cunningham, on Saturday night. He had a tag along rider with him as well, Steve Hodge. I think Mike C was trying to break him in right with making him ride in the rain for most of the way to meet up with us. We will have one more long day of over 400 plus miles on Monday then it will be some short day until we get home on the 22nd.
