In early May we went to St Augustine FL to greet this year’s Coast to Coast (capital C !) riders from Timberline. They rode the Southern Tier which is San Diego to St Augustine -3000 miles of 2021 fun.
When the group departed vaccines were few and far between and the country and the tour operator were in transition from 2020. Texas had the big weather event and recovery from that plus evolving ways to remain safe made everyday a different challenge. Hats off to this group on the brave decision to start riding in early March.
The excitement of the loved ones as they rounded the last corner was terrific. Families, friends and pets were getting back together after 2 months.
The toes went into the sand, the front wheels were dipped in the Atlantic and the bubbly flowed. There were lots and lots of hugs and huge smiles. On a very special note Debbie and I were the family stand-ins for Mr. Tom Gray from Vermont. We were so happy and proud of the whole group but Tom was our special guy for the day.
Having made an attempt at this ride last year, getting to El Paso with most of these riders I was so elated for everyone. A special shout out to Bella the border collie who did quite a few miles with her owner Tim who pulled her trailer.
Everything is possible. To quote a good friend “The time to get to your bucket list is while you still can.”
Start dreaming, keep dreaming. What’s it going to take to make it happen ?
The miracle is always the courage to start. Love to all.
