Thumbs up Save the Date: Uncle Fuzzys New England Charity Ride II

Good morning New England Road Glide riders. Although I now live in SW Florida (perfect riding weather, but boring riding roads) I wanted to put together one last ride with some of my New England/NY riding friends from this site.

I'm going to ride from FL back to Thornton, NH for the 20th Annual White Mt. Boogie and Blues Festival on August 19/20/21. I've enjoyed this terrific blues festival for 5 -6 years now. "Springer Todd" has ridden up from Maryland each year to join me. We ride in the mornings and attend the festival from about noon on. I'd encourage anyone who likes the blues to check out this festival at:

Charity Ride Info:

I'm in the process of putting together Uncle Fuzzy's Charity Ride II for the following weekend - August 26/27/28. (That is NOT the Labor Day holiday weekend, Labor Day is the following weekend). There will be no official registration, no official rides, no official anything. Just show up and have fun. I'll 'pass the hat' at some point over the weekend to collect a few bucks to donate to a local animal shelter. Couples and solo riders welcome.

This week I'll be contacting the Town and Country Motor Inn in Gorham, NH to do a room block and hopefully negotiate a discounted room rate. Additional info will be posted here as it becomes available. We already have several people from NY, MA, NH, and Maine who are coming. Hope to see you there.

This is probably the last time I'll ride from Fl to NH/Maine so I just had to take advantage of my being there to put together a last northern New England ride with some old friends and hopefully a few new ones. We'll ride by day and enjoy the comradarie at night, with the focus on just relaxing and having some fun. Y2K - I know you also have 2-3 others that are planning on riding up with you. I look forward to seeing you. Warning, be cautious around Glide 69's bike, every where it goes these big long black snakes seem to follow it! LOL.

OK, I spoke with the owner of the T&C today and he's blocked 20 rooms for Fri/Sat August 26/27. He'll send me a proposal regarding a special rate next week. Check back here for more info next week.

Jack, Bob told me that he was going to the pork chop run and I told him that I had taken a look at going but it just wasn't in the cards this year .... maybe next year. And yes, I had a few doubts about my willingness and ability to ride from here to NH/ME - due mostly to my right knee that needs replacing. It dawned on my that I'm retired now and I don't have to make it there in 3 days ... I can take my time and do some easy 300-400 mile days. As "Clint" said, "A man's gotta know his limitations!"
