The Scooter Cannonball Run is a coast to coast endurance event for scooters. It is a time/distance/regularity rally where points are awarded based on miles completed and the ability to maintain the standard pace. This year it will begin in Savannah, GA and end eight days later in San Diego, CA covering 2633 miles. There are over 50 entrants riding all types of scooters. From a 1946 Salibury to a modern 3 wheel Piaggo MP3. I have decided join the fun this year. We will leave Savannah on April 22 and head west. I will be riding to raise money for KIDS and LEMUR'S charities. Please help us by purchasing some miles for one of these charities. Don't worry, I will be covering close to 6,000 miles out to California and back to Florida, so there are plenty of miles to go around. ALL monies go directly to the charity.

Had a great night at the KC Inn in Show Low.  This is a mom and pop place, like many of the nights on the road, but this was clean comfortable and had a great bed that I actually stayed a sleep for more than 3 hours without waking up.

My plan was to leave after 7 since the temp was in the upper 30's but by 6:30 I could not resist any longer and hooped on Big Red and headed for Parker.

It was a little chilly but warmed up nicely and by the end of the ride I saw road temp's at 100.

Lots of wonderful scenery and it had warmed up enough were I could wear gloves that I can actually work the camera with.

Met a really nice guy in Jerome, AZ named Allen Muma and we talked of a long time.  It is a nice old little mining town on the hill south of Prescott and a destination for weekend 

Allen, Chief of Police Jerome

Officer he was going really, really fast and I could hardly hold on.

Is that man learning to write like us?

I descended down the back side of the mountain going so hot they sent a fire truck out for me.

Then it was long, straight, flat roads to Parker.

Last night on the road and everyone is doing one more adjustment to there scooters or trying to patch them up in hopes of getting to the finish line.

And, of course you want to have clean clothes when you get there.
