One of the Pack’s shortest days as we rode from Memphis to Nashville.
The day started nice and early at MCC where we had another amazing welcome, including a reception line with white shirts and ties as far as the eye could see. MCC is old school, proudly southern and they are some of the most hospitable people you will ever have the pleasure of meeting.
The welcome when we arrived was overwhelming with so many people gathered to meet and greet us. Scot Berry put out another great breakfast and professional massages were available to all riders that wanted them!
Not only was the local news on site, but Scot conducted the interview of the Patriots Pack leader Mike “Paco” Stramaglio before he addressed the MCC team in their newly remodeled facility.
Once again, MCC presented riders with a check to The Jillian Fund, the charity they are riding for as they visit imaging dealers on their way to the Rolling Thunder Memorial Day ride in DC to honor our Veterans, Active Military, MIA and KIA.
It was a beautiful day as the Pack made their way from Memphis to Nashville. The group would soon be rejoining Fish, who rode ahead to take care of some business. He’s from Nashville and he had a great night set up for us in the Printer District (for real).
Shortly after we arrived at the hotel, Kory “Mikey’s Dad” Thompson arrived to join us for the remainder of the run to DC. Kory is a Goldstar dad and we are proud to ride with him in honor of his son Cpl. Michael Eyre Thompson of the US Army who was killed in Iraq. We love riding with Kory.
Nashville has changed a LOT since I last went out in that town. What a blast! We started at a great blues bar and made our way to the famous Tootsies and some other places. Great times.
