Doug's RFTW 2015

Welcome to my trip journal!
After having made this trip in 2014 I confirmed that it WAS the trip of a lifetime. Then... a couple of weeks ago my phone rang and the guy who coordinated my trip last year was asking if I'd like to go again this year. My initial response was "No". I'd done it once and I really didn't want to be away from home for 3+ weeks. But before giving my final answer I discussed it with Shirley, intending to talk her into going with me this year. She was pretty adamant that the intense schedule was not something that fit her idea of traveling. I had to agree that it would probably be too strenuous to be much fun for her. But she encouraged me to go anyway, if that was what I wanted to do. Now here I have to tell you that this trip would be quite different for me. Rather than driving a chase vehicle for the Lone Wolf HD group I would be, specifically, escort/chase vehicle for a Medal of Honor recipient MSG(R) Leroy Petry. Leroy will be riding his HD trike from Tacoma, WA to Ontario, CA to Wash D.C. and back to Tacoma. I feel very honored to be asked to do this and decided to say "yes" and make the trip one more time. So I'm off to Spokane this Friday, May 8th to pick up the provided truck and trailer and head south. Through this trip journal I'll try to inform you of what I'm doing and hope to include photos galore.
So wish me luck. I'm off to do the Run For The Wall.
