At an age when many are folks are planning their retirement, pottering in the garden and watching the world go by from their rocking chair, gutsy granny Marcia is shrugging off her slippers, sporting a ‘Tribal Tattoo’ on each arm & rocking into her biker boots as she revs her engine & joins a motorcycle gang!!!
To be fair the “Tribal Tattoos” are her sun safe and super cool, 50+ UPF Sunny Sleevez and this Grandma’s gang are less about raising-hell and more about raising awareness.
Marcia is joining the “Ride for the wall” an organization who’s mission statement is to promote healing among ALL veterans and their families and friends, to call for an accounting of all Prisoners of War and those Missing in Action (POW/MIA),.
RFTW southern route took off from Southern California on May 16th, Marcia plans to join them from her home in Texas then continue across the US ending in Washington DC to join with the May 27th XXV Rolling Thunder Run.
Riders from around the nation, and even around the world rally at the Pentagon and begin the run through the streets of Washington, D.C. a display of patriotism and respect for all who defend our country.
“As a military brat I’ve traveled all kinds of ways, all over the world…but other than a stint in Spain as a teenager when our only transportation was a bike, I’ve never done anything like this…but I’m ready…here’s a couple pictures of my trike…I took the first just after I bought my ‘big’ flags last year…I also ride with the Patriot Guard to honor vets who have died and we fly them during funeral processions…The second was taken the first or second day after I bought it and I was hamming it up, showing off the trike and my new helmet…It’s a great toy for an old Granny like me! I’m soooo ready to go!
I’ll let you know how it goes!”
I for one can’t wait to hear more about this amazing journey-safe travels Marcia!
