This morning started by helping a fellow traveler. Mr. Crossly was not filling well and had the front desk call him an ambulance. I brought him some water and sat with him in front the hotel until the ambulance arrived. He had had 7 stints put in 5 weeks ago. 2 in the leg 2 in the kidney and 3 in the heart. I offered to call some in his family, but he declined the offer and when the ambulance arrived they carried him away. I will try and follow up today to see how he is.
The rest of the morning was spent with fellow cannonballor, Dave Winholt. Dave drove the support vehicle for his daughter, Kelly/GeorgiaGirl, myself and others. He is also in the fund raising business and offered to give us a hand with the school It was a long enjoyable morning.
Big Red and I headed for Ashville after noon and since there were threatening skies we pretty much just rode straight through to home of our good friend Rich and Vicki
Over 7,000 miles accident very riding........
I rode up the front yard of Rich and Vicki's which is pretty steep at the top and I was turning when Vicki waved and spoke from the deck. Being southern gentleman, I was required to acknowledge her and as I stopped I realized "this ain't going to work". 90 degrees on the side of the mountain with a scooter does not work. As I was going over, I cushioned Big Red as much as possible and I rolled down the mountain. Fortunately, Red did not get hurt. This was no damage to Red or my ego as it was all pretty damn funny.
As big red will be staying with Vicki and Rich for a few weeks they had reserved a parking place
