Last weekend we were in Wyoming for my husband's 20 year class reunion. Let me just say... It was quite the interesting weekend. While some where lounging at the pool on Sat, some of us decided to ditch the organized day activities and cruise around Glendo Lake on the bikes instead. It was a gorgeous day for a ride!
On the way back to town, we had to wait out a thunderstorm at a truck stop which is where we met 3 guys who were in the midst of the Hoka Hey ride. In cannon ball run style, these motorcyclists are racing from Key West, FL and will end up in Alaska sometime around the 4th of July. The problem is that unfortunately, it sounds like the whole thing may turn out to be a scam. Supposedly, the winner is to receive 500,000.00 in gold coins. However, there are already rumors that there is no gold to be had. The guys pictured below were in pretty good spirits about the whole thing and mentioned they are in it more for the experience than anything else. However, I think I wouldn't be so gracious after putting in a $1,000.00 entry fee. I for one will be interested to see how this all turns out.
Oh, and to keep with the hunting / fishing theme of my blog... one of the guys mentioned that he hit a deer coming through the mountains. Yikes!
Good luck to my motorcycle Hoka Hey friends!
They are probably sleeping at a random gas station somewhere on the way to Alaska right now.
