Change of Plans

Well Mark was on call for work this weekend and he ended getting called to go to Indiana today. We ended up all going along to bring this very much needed part down there. On the way home we encountered this "parade" of motorcycles.
I have NEVER seen anything like this. At first we just thought it was a group of bikes. Not even close! It never ended- they were being escorted by the police and there were people lined up and down the roads watching and waving. We were going 45 miles per hour and this lasted for 20 minutes!! I caught myself with my mouth hanging open because I have never seen so many bikes in my life- Mark thinks there were about 4-5000! I came home and looked up bike rally's in Indiana and it turns out this was a rally for the Muscular Dystrophy Association for the Labor Day weekend. The website said each bike had a fee of $30 to ride in it- so I think Jerry's kids did quite well this weekend if this is any sample of how the fundraising went.
Here's a picture- this doesn't do it justice at all but it's the best I could get!
