Next is the route. We'll be taking the southern route across America leaving from Daytona and riding across the panhandle of Florida and the gulf coast to Louisiana before heading slightly north to Dallas. Dallas is 1200 miles and we hope to be able to be there in a week but that will be some really long days ahead. There are a few Motor Maids in Louisiana that are going to host a fundraiser around Thursday the 23rd and if time allows, we will also try and visit the state house in Baton Rouge to carry some legislation about mandatory newborn testing. We will then go to Rick Fairless' Strokers in Dallas, Texas where Sunday March 26th, we will have another fundraiser. We are going to travel back down south to Austin and carry legislation to the Texas State House before heading west. I'm going to leave the rest of the route open due to time and logistics of more fundraisers along the way.
In the planning stages are more fundraisers. Possibly doing some in Daytona before we leave, more out west and even a major rock band trying to spearhead a fundraiser. Also in the developing stages are some of the merchandise from this ride. We are working on tee shirts, patches and stickers of the logo above. They will all be available on the Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation website (www.aidanhasaposse.org/). More info will be coming soon so stay tuned and don't be surprised if The Penguin shows up.
A big shout out to Biltwell Inc., Rick Fairless' Stokers Dallas and Buddy Johnson who has already gone above and beyond to help get this ball rolling!!!!! Special thanks to Don "Thunder" Baggett who did the awesome illustration of us and our mini bikes.
