Well, they were related, but no. Of the 8 strays, 4 will drop calves soon. I wonder if a dozen cows would be enough to cover Glen's meat order for next year's get-together?

You know you are among friends when you can just lean this up against your bike while you eat!

Lol.... Glen was starting the door prize raffles and you had to be present to win. I didn't have time to break it down and put in the trunk. (I don't have a man purse...err...trailer, yet)

As you said....I knew I was amongst friends.

There were so many donated door prices that they had to put all the tickets back in the pot and go a second round. It was like family Christmas in spring time.

And, after the blessing of the food somebody said, "Amen. Pass the ammo." Ha! Good times at Glen's for sure.

I was grinning ear to ear and munching some some great (pilfered) chocolate cookies all the way home.

You're not the first person to mention that he is a little touched, LOL

Got home Monday about 5:30 pm, followed Jammer and Mr Machine for twelve days 4881 smiles, was Snowing and raining like crazy when I rode through Minneapolis ! The truck drivers were talking on CB about some crazy fool riding a motorcycle !

Thanks for the great party Glockjock and everyone that was lucky enough to attend !!! I was very impressed with all the great helpful folks that attended !!! All the guns, trailers and the very cool dog rescue just added to the greatness of the entire event !!!

And then there's Tom Finch, man that 82 year old dude does the smoothest u turns pulling a trailer with a two wheel motorcycle I've ever seen !

Another one in the books! I am thrilled to have many friends who ride so far and make the time/energy commitment to come to brave the weather chances in Southeast Texas. We had rain again, and quite a few people rode in torrential downpours to and from this RTE, but eventually we had about 80 attendees from 11 states. We had riders from Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Missouri, Kentucky, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

I don't have to really plan anything for this event. The riders take care of that themselves. This Ride to Eat is like "Field of Dreams" in that I just announce it, and they will come. People provide their own entertainment, except that Roger-Yoda is our after-dinner stand-up comedian. The gun range is a big draw. I nailed together a bunch of target stands and they were shot to pieces by .22, .380, 9mm, 38 Special, .357 Mag, .40, .44 Mag, .45, .454 Casul, 5.56 mm, and I don't what else. I can probably retire again by selling the brass from my range.

Jerry Wells did some maintenance on a few bikes. He installed a voltmeter on mine and a few others, and I believe he checked swing arm bearings on a couple of bikes. Marvin and Cheryl were the Friday night hosts, feeding the masses with delicious beef, chicken, and sausage tacos. I cannot say enough about the Wild Turkey and Cheryl, for they are some of the finest people I know.

BigJammer, Mr. Machine, and Cycledude (Jim, Gary, and Mike) from Wisconsin were the first to arrive Monday evening. They stopped by here on their way to Tom Finch's to pick up Jammer's new Tailwind. They left for parts unknown, and returned Friday. In the meantime Ssncob arrived Friday and installed a voltmeter, then others showed up, then pretty soon my yard looked like a Honda dealer.

I had a lot of help getting the meals set up Saturday morning. The heavy rains slowed us a little bit, but ssncob was trying to shield the turkey fryer. It all worked out, and we eventually gave the benediction shortly after Noon and got the serving line started. As someone said, it has become a tradition to have someone empty a magazine to emphasize the Amen! LOL!!

After dinner we had the door prize drawings. SO MANY people bought door prizes that I believe that everybody got a stage call. I later found some that I forgot. Jeff Head (3 Eagles) had bought some high-intensity LED flashlights as door prizes, and I found them sitting where I had put them for safe-keeping. My apologies Jeff!

We then turned the microphone over to Yoda. He lived both up to my expectations, and down to Joan's fears!! My hat is off to a man who can entertain like Roger.

On a side note, the whole group made enough of an impression to make one lady buy a motorcycle. I had told my friend Robin about this group and invited her to attend. She came both Friday and Saturday, and was so impressed by you people that she just bought a used Shadow 1100!

When all was said and done, Louie Graham came to me with an envelope. Once again, someone (in the past it has been Roger's wife Joan) set out a donation jar and collected money to help defray my expenses. Thank you so much. This RTE will be hard to beat. If I do this again I will have to rethink my strategy. I am so humbled by the friendships we have formed that I look forward to this event every year. I hope I can do this again. You people mean more to me than I can ever say!

Thanks for the memories!
Glen

I ride too fast, too far, and too often to ride anything but a Goldwing rolling on a car tire pulling a Tailwind trailer because friends don't let friends vote Democrat.

Thanks again GlockJock Glen. Just going through some photos and reminiscing about the event and my wife sent me one. Me and Duckster both taking pictures when it was pouring. We had a great time and you put on a terrific time.
