A new year always brings new adventures and sometimes an opportunity to do good for our fellow Americans. Such is the case today when I received an email from Morgan Castano who is the Director of the Kyle Petty Charity Ride Across America with my application to participate.
As an avid motorcycle rider since I was a young Army Lieutenant back in 1985 in Italy, this has always been a dream for me — an item on my bucket list. I had been contacted middle of last year to participate in this event and set the dates aside.
Today, the final confirmation, by way of application, arrived and is already in the mail headed back to Charlotte NC. I will be riding beside two dear friends, George and Elizabeth Cable who just recently joined us for our First Allen West Foundation Veterans Ride to Ft. Pierce Florida for the annual US Navy SEAL Muster at the National UDT/SEAL Museum.
The ride is not just about folks getting together to trek across America, there is a very important reason behind this event, in its 20th year.
