Yearly and Yellowstone

Saturday, August 18, 2012

There are a couple of things we try to do yearly, while some we've only done once and might or might not do again (Quartzsite, Daytona Bike Week, Sturgis Bike Week to name a few).

Both of our annual events are related to Stu's career as a firefighter for Anne Arundel County (MD). The first is the annual Retired Anne Arundel County Firefighter Reunion, traditionally held in Kissimmee, FL. This works well for us when we winter in Florida but we have also flown in from San Diego when we were staying in Yuma one winter.
2009 ~ 2010 ~ 2011 ~ 2012
      The other annual event is the Red Helmet Ride in honor of all the fallen firefighters. The ride starts at one gathering spot, Walkersville has been used the last few years, and the group (usually over 500 bikes) continue to the National Fire Academy in Emmitsburg, MD on a police escorted ride. The ride is open to all motorcyclists. The ride is always in October, done on Saturday of the survivor family weekend. From their website:
      All bikers are invited to participate in this show of support for America's fallen fire heroes and their survivors.
