      Sorry about that Dee. We finished about 11:40am and headed to downtown Atlanta to pass out the blessing bags. It's always good to get there as early as you.

    After everything with the snow storm, we had to take our pup to the vet and I just don't have the gas money to come out today. Message me if you want to donate fabric for fleece scarves. I never heard from anyone who was interested in helping...

    The weekend after this meet up there is snow forecasted again. Unfortunately, I cannot afford to help out with supplies, but I would like to suggest mylar blankets (the thermal, silver emergency blankets). They are a few bucks each and can be found at Wal-Mart, Home Depot, most sports stores... Not sure if I can make it to the meet up, either. Be safe out there!

      It has changed to "frozen mix" off something like that. Either way, cold is upon Atlanta. I found some good quality 50 packs on Amazon for under $35. I dint know if anyone wants to go in on some, but at under $1 each, thought I'd put it out there! Perhaps we can take up a cash collection and these can be ordered and taken out separately.

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.
