I contacted Sam via ADVrider.com to ask for a place to crash on the way North. He told me “Absolutely!” but warned that I might get a little crowded that weekend. A group of local bikers hosted the annual “Chip” run. An event to remember a close friend lost to cancer and donate to the local cancer hospital. I was touched by the camradery amongst the roughly sixty riders and how they welcomed me to the this beautiful event. I wanna thank Sam, Lainie, Thomas and the rest of the crew for allowing me to be part of this amazing experience!
