WHATCHU TALKIN BOUT WILLIS?

I grew up when Diff'rent Strokes was a popular television show. That's no big deal unless your last name is Willis. To this day I still hear those famous words popularized by Arnold: "Whatchu talkin bout Willis?" Usually they are uttered by someone looking at me as though I may have never heard it before. Yeah, right! Well this blog is what I (Willis) am talkin bout...my thoughts, observations & opinions. Enjoy...

We did it...

We did it... Team Fallen soldier did 150 miles in 2 days. I've never done anything like this before and it was genuinely a great time. Everything exceeded my expectations: food was plentiful and good, the location of the camp was lovely - right on the Chesapeake Bay, the pool was very nice, the showers were hot, the dorms had cold ac & no one even snored! Tammy & I enjoyed the time away together and I 'm pretty sure we will do it again. We even landed a free hotel room in the historic Cape Charles Hotel the night before the ride began. Another team had some no shows and someone told some friends/teammates (Barry & Lisa) who hooked us up. The ride itself was enjoyable. It was fun to ride without a bunch of traffic, turns & stoplights. I enjoyed the scenery too - old farmhouses, waterfront, open land, wooded (shaded) areas. There were rest stops throughout the ride, about every 10 miles or so. There was plenty of water/beverages and a variety of snacks. My favorite was the peanut butter & banana sandwich (tasty). Each day en
ended with an ice cold towel which I promptly wrapped around my neck - this was another pleasant surprise. The best, perhaps, were the Red Bulls that were available at the very last rest stop of day two - somebody deserves big props for thinking of that. Anyway, I highly recommend the MS-150 at Cape Charles. If you want to join our team just let me know.
