The Colonel’s Motivational Quotes for the Day!
Good “Wednesday” Morning Everyone from the “Mobile Eagle’s Nest” in San Antonio, TX — 12 June 2019!
Well, yesterday during Day 10 it was a tough one, spent the entire morning at the Harley-Davidson Dealership in El Paso, TX getting my entire coolant and radiator system replaced on the 2015 CVO Road Glide Ultra and thanks to SFC James Shank for being a former Parts Manager there we would still be in El Paso, TX. SGT Billy Mullins and I were able to finally get on the road for a 9 hour ride to San Antonio, TX at 1:00 PM that afternoon and arrived in San Antonio, TX at 11:48 PM at night. Long days ride, but successful. We missed the dinner and some really great veterans last night, but having breakfast with a few this morning. Pictures to follow here on Day 11.
We’re working to raise $50,000 to abolish $5Million in Healthcare Debt for our Veterans. “I need your help in raising that $50,000”. Will you help me & my RIPRIDE4VETS team?
