The Colonels Motivational/Inspirational Quotes and Message of the Day!

The Colonel’s Motivational/Inspirational Quotes & Message of the Day!

Good “Monday!” Morning “Burroughs’ Posse,” and all great connections. Welcome from the “Eagle’s Nest” on the road, on the Harley for the last day of the “RIPRIDE4Vets 2021” in Hays, KS! — 21 June 2021!

Day 19 of the "RIPRIDE4Vets 2021" – Big day yesterday of travel from Simpson, IL and my great visit with Col Carl Whicker, his awesome wife Darlene and his adopted son Nathan (just a friend in a very small town in southern Illinois), then I was off to see my good friend Sgt John Houck in Leawood, KS, but he got kidnapped by his daughter for “Father’s Day!” and we missed each other. I left him a “Warriors for Life” Coin. I stopped in at Topeka, KS and visited my dad’s twin brother’s wife and my cousins for a surprise visit. Nancy didn’t recognize me at first and I didn’t think she was going to let me in the house… She thought I was a motorcycle gang member (lol) (See Pictures below)

Day 20 – Today I slept in for the first time in the last 19 days until about 5 AM this morning and I will go next door to local restaurant here in Hays, KS and take my time getting back to the “Eagle’s Nest” in Castle Rock, CO. By the way for all my connections and friends here on RallyPoint – Bella, my mother, and I are moving the “Eagle’s Nest” to the Woodlands in Texas and we’re going to build a new home somewhere on Lake Livingston, TX. Just a lit bit of news…more to follow…
