    Hi - to everyone at the session last night. Please remember to check for ticks...I found one on my scalp that survived 3 days of shampoo & blow-dry; and I THOUGHT I had checked after the hike. I have long hair but this could happen to anyone. Gross reality.

      I once found one after 2 days ... woke up with it right beside my eye on the pillow, and that was after I checked during a shower and used a fine tooth comb. You do your best. Nature fools us with the rest.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
