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.

Thank you all for your donation!!!  We have raised over $9,000 with a few more donations to come in. This will go a long way to advance education of children and sustaining a rare species of animals.


Friday the 13th my lucky day.

Today is the most dangerous part of the trip.  "Get home'itess" and the last 30 miles of bumper to bumper traffic of aggressive drivers and old geezers who can't see can be detrimental to you life.

I roll into the garage safe and sound.  Big Red has been on the road for 84 days. I was gone for most of that but only 36 scooter days.  The rest of the time away was on vacation or family time. We went through 2 rear tires, had 2 maintenance issues,neither of which stopped our forward progress.

Again I find America a great country and a scooter a great way to see. I saw some of the ugly of America coming out again on this trip, mainly related to having a black President.  That bothers me. But history says we will make the same mistakes over and over in this country, but we seem to survive.

I hope we do.
