Ride for Kids 2011

10-16-11
This day did not start right. I have the motorhome in the driveway and my car was parked on an angle, partly in front of the motorhome.
When I got in the car it would not start. The Diehard battery is only two years old.
I used two sets of jumper cables and joined the car battery and the battery from the motorhome.
The car started and I was able to move the car to the front of the house.
I used Doreen's car for going shopping.
When I came back I started my car again and drove down to Mira Costa College where Gary Magee is participating in the "Ride for Kids".
I gave him my check and we were able to talk for a few minutes. The organization raises money for children with brain tumors, and gives some of the children rides on motorcycles with sidecars.
There were a lot of motorcycles.
On the way home I stopped at Sears where they put a new battery in the car, for free.
Tomorrow we will be leaving for Ramona. It will be only a three day outing.
I am tired of following my WIN friends on their blog. I want to go too.
Several groups are in different parts of the country.

Well, that doesn't sound too bad - you got a battery for free! We're heading back to Mesa for the winter, but we'll probably go to Quartzsite in January. Hopefully we'll see you there.
