Dallas Wrap Up

Another outstanding event. Short. To the point.

The heat of 2005 and the wind of 2006 left us alone this year. Instead, we had 72° days with cool breezes and lots of sunshine.

The nights got cold -- near freezing Friday night -- but manageable. Once again, the Dallas Route Safety team was outstanding. A friendly, likable, quality group of folks. Evenly split between motorcycles and motorless cycles, the group worked together flawlessly. Our venerable (look it up) captain once again navigated the OCD-prone staff and renegade bikers (sorry, Chuck, but I was only going one way) with grace.

As always the event is measured by the walkers. This group of perambulators was awesome. Happy, healthy and well trained, they carried their 3-Day Smiles for all 60 Miles.

Thank you Dallas walkers, crew and staff. I will miss this group of new friends.

Michael I walked in the Dallas 3day in 2006 & again this year with my 17 yr old son. On day 3 I was walking by myself and struglin when I came to a cross walk you must of been able to tell you offered me a hand a smile and hug when we got to the other side and said softly "your almost there" haha then when my son who was catching up came through he said you asked about me, he was in a hurry & worried to catch me. thanks for what you do yes it does get in your blood.
Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty & well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out & proclaiming "WOW WHAT A RIDE!!"
