Planning for the Memorial Ride For My Dad

I have been working on this trip/ride for months, but also avoiding it. This is not/is something I want to do, but yet, it is something feel I have to do. So, to deal with it, I have made it more into more than just a day to remember my Dad and spread a few… Read more »

The Day My Life Changed Forever

7 years ago today my life was changed forever when I took a little tumble off my loaded flatbed & shattered both my wrists. It took 3 years to fully heal & neither wrists healed right. The right has a 5% angle & the left a 10% angle. The doctor restricted me to lifting no… Read more »

Dad’s Memorial Tattoo (1st Session)

Chris at Eternal Expression Tattoos worked very hard on making this the perfect tribute to my Dad for me. Two weeks we talked back and forth through Facebook Messenger and phone calls.

Memorial Video for Dad

Do you ever think about all the crap you have hidden away in your house that someone is going to have to deal with if something happens to you? The clothes you have outgrown, the boxes you didn’t get around to unpacking the last time you moved, the keepsakes that you bought on a trip… Read more »

Trucker’s Riding Club is Reborn

After much thought & many conversations, Ann, Dan & I have decided that since the 3 of us own the 2 logos created for Trucker’s Riding Club, have sunk our own money, time & effort into it, & that Jaremy seems to be only trying to line his pockets, we would bring it back to… Read more »

Speechless

   I am escorting a guy today that was in Afghanistan in 2007 & 2008. While waiting on a tire guy to get here, we get to talking about being overseas. He asked about my time in Iraq & if we had up-armor. When I told him no, gave him my dates over there &… Read more »
