September 7, 2019 we will be riding Old Route 66 from Colton, CA to Chicago, IL. It will be 12 days of fun and excitement. If you have already become a All the way Gang member this will be a whole new trip. Ok you are understanding what I am talking about, we are running the Old Route 66 from the West to the East and you will see everything you missed going East to West. Now for you that have never done this Ride know this. You do not have to ride a motorcycle (I will be driving a fourwheeler) to be a part. Are goal for this trip is to raise $50,000 and we will be asking you to do your part.

I have spoke with Wendy at the Hampton Inn, San Bernardino, California in September 2017 so she is aware that we are doing this but it was much two early to make any arrangements. We will get back to her when we reach our one year out date which will be Sept 7, 2018.
