​Ride for the Relay 2019 

Each day I will try and post pictures and some information on that days adventures.  Please be advised that sometimes, time does't allow for much computer time and some places it is hard to get on the internet.  I will do the best I can. 

Hi All
Our day started with a good cup of coffee, and not so good breakfast at the Comfort Suites. It should be illegal what some of these hotels do to an egg. LOL
We visited Dorothy and ToTo, so Nancy could take some pictures for her grandkids. Then we headed south out of Liberal on 54 Hwy, until we got to Tucamcari NM. We had a nice lunch at the Pow Wow restaurant, and Nancy met a new best friend.  I took a picture of them together. They seemed to hit it off but I think Nancy did all of the talking which we all know she does so well. Anyway she named her new best friend Flo although I'm not sure why cause nothing Flo'd from her mouth only the drinks went in...LOL. All kidding aside, each booth had people painted on the wall of the booth like they were actually sitting there with you. Creepy but kinda neat. Doesn't take much to entertain us, does it? We jumped on the big road ( I-40 ) and put the hammer down. we went a little over 500 miles. We're in safe at a Comfort Suites at Gallop NM. 

On our way for the greatest ride ever

Good morning Rodger.  Stacey and I are in California.  Going today to see Stacey's uncle. 

Two days before leaving Michigan my sister Sharon Trezise passed away down in South Carolina after a sudden one week hospital stay where she was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer.  My niece and nephew wanted us to complete our planned trip.  Hearts have weighed heavy as services were just last Sunday.  Please pick out a portion of the Ride to dedicate to her and post on the web site as many family members will be following our trip.  Thanks Rodger.  Tom and Stacey Sutton
