Next weekend- and you can come too

   Last week I asked for suggestions on where to go. I had a lot of suggestions but one that grabbed me was an invitation to go sky diving. I was already in Georgia on my way to Florida when I got it so I turned around and went north to North Carolina. Chasing my destiny, I made it up to the jump zone in Reaford, NC just in time for high winds to prevent any skydiving that day. I was so bummed about it all that I turned around the same day and rode back to Charleston. In the morning I had a clear head and came up with a new plan.
    You see, in 1982, I jumped from a plane in Paris, California. It was the biggest rush I have ever got. I did it with a bunch of Marines I was stationed with at 29 Palms. I've always wanted to do it again but like so many of us, life just got too busy. Well, now I've decided to not wait any longer. I'm going to take the time and make it happen.
    There is another detail that I want to stay true with. In 1982, they had no tandem jumps. You jumped alone. I wanted to do the same now but I got a lot of mixed information. This weekend I learned of a couple different options but it is possible to jump without being hooked up to another person. To me, that is like going on an amusement ride. It might be scary but you are depending on others so it is a controlled situation. I want to be on my own.
   I called around some drop zones closer to Charleston, SC. and found just the place. There is a drop zone in Walterboro, SC called Skidive Walterboro ( 843-549-6660) . I'll be going this Saturday, March 4th. Now the fun part-
   I've always said that I am an ordinary man living an extraordinary life. So I'm wondering if there are any ordinary men or women that would like to jump with me Saturday? I think it would be fun to share the experience with some of my friends . Give them a call, get the details and make your reservation. It will be a day to remember!

Tell Bean're where to go!

   Now is your chance. Tell me where to go. It's going to be 80 degrees here in Charleston, SC this weekend and I feel the need to getaway and take a little ride. My "little" rides have sometimes been a little on the long side. Tell me.  Where? Maybe it's to see an old friend. Maybe a new one. Maybe a national landmark. Maybe it's a party or rally. Beach? Mountains? I don't know, that's why I'm asking you.
   Now the good part. Some one will win a Bean're gift package- both my books ( signed of course ), a Team Bean're patch and plenty of stickers. Already got them? well then I'll send them to a friend or family member for you. You make the call. And all for just telling me where to go.............

Latest update on the coast to coast mini bike world record attempt for Aidan

    The biggest news is that David Uhl has graciously donated one of his signed prints of "The Iron Horse Heist". These are selling for over 3000 dollars now and only a few left before they will sell out and no longer available. You can win this one in a raffle that we will be doing with 100% of the proceeds going to The Aidan Foundation.  There are more prizes to like a Biltwell helmet hand painted by Darren McKeag. There are more prizes soon to be announced. Get you raffle tickets today at The Aidan Jack Seeger Foundation Website.
   Next, we have 3 of the stops worked out as well as the starting point.

  And on Sunday, March 26, we will be at Rick Fairless' Strokers in Dallas Texas all day long raising money for Aidan.

    Now that we will back track and talk about the BEFORE we leave Daytona. I will be arriving Daytona for bike week and will be doing some fundraising as well as selling raffle tickets at several of the events. You can look for me Wednesday at Bill Dodge's, Thursday at Willie's Tropical Chopper Show and Friday at Robison's at The Biltwell booth.
     I now want to thank all my wonderful sponsors who not only are helping out with some of the costs of this world record attempt, but are also donating to The Aidan Foundation.
