  1. Hi all - I just wanted to thank all of you for your kindness and support. The banner which was signed by the 2013 participants now proudly hangs in the garage in the "city" home. I do miss the planning of this event (11 yrs is long time) but I passed it along to 2 very wonderful members Rob & Dann who ran with it and did a great job! Thank you all so much and Merry Christmas!!! Patti :usa
  2. Hi all - Thank you to all of you for making the 13th Annual Victory Highway Relay a success. There were quite a few "snaffoos" and lots of weather (I know my spelling sucks), but all of you came through with flying colors!!! Here is an update on a couple of things: The banner for Papa Vic is being sent to Tom Keller, so it can be presented to his family. The remaining shirts and pins must be sent to me and as soon as possible.(do we even have any left?) When I receive them, I will send to all who have requested them. After that they will be available at the store. All monies received need to be sent in the envelopes provided as the Blue Star Mothers next packing is 7.9.12 and they can use the money!! Now- the hard part.....All of my leg captains know this already, but this was my last year as Chair for this event. As of 7.4.12, I have resigned from this position along with my position on the events committee. I no longer have the time to devote. It has been so much fun for me to "lead my herd of wild cats" and will truly miss all of you. Thank you all again and ride safe. Patti :usa
  3. Hi - I'm so glad you guys all had a great time on Leg 10...It's been a rough year for the weather, but we are tough! Thanks for the pictures...As we ride the Victory Highway in support of our troops, remember all the pictures that I can get are sent to our deployed soldiers with their care packages. Patti :usa
  4. Thank you Tom for making the arrangements for this. Ron was a large part of the V2V for many years and we are honored to carry the banner cross country in his memory. See ya the V2V! Victory Highway Relay Committee :usa

I'm also guessing the times are based on cars and not motorcycles going through twisties. We can do them MUCH faster however, we will NOT be breaking the sound barrier! We'll hold a brief meeting prior to departure so please try to be about 15 minutes early so we can line up and be organized (I'm hopeful anyway).

  10. Just little history for those who do not know what the Victory Higway Relay is all about. Patti :usa
  11. The Victory Highway was an auto trail across the United States between New York City and San Francisco, roughly equivalent to the present U.S. Route 40. [edit] History The Victory Highway Association was organized in 1921 to locate and mark a transcontinental highway via St. Louis, generally south of the Lincoln Highway.[1] The road was to be dedicated to American forces who died in World War I. By 1922 the organization had decided to run from New York City southwest to Camden, New Jersey, Philadelphia, Wilmington, Baltimore, and Washington before turning west to San Francisco.[2] Washington was later removed from the route, which ran west from Baltimore to Cumberland, Maryland. At Cumberland, it picked up the old National Road to Vandalia, Illinois, which was already marked as part of the National Old Trails Road.[3] It continued to follow that auto trail near Fulton, Missouri, and then followed a different route across the rest of that state, passing through Jefferson City on its way to Kansas City. The highway continued west from Kansas City to Denver over the Golden Belt Highway,[citation needed] and then ran via Salt Lake City, across the Great Salt Lake Desert and Nevada, and via Sacramento to San Francisco.[4][5] It crossed the Antioch Bridge and passed through the Broadway Tunnel west of Sacramento.[6] Since it mostly overlapped the National Old Trails Road east of St. Louis, the Victory Highway was little-known there.[citation needed] However, it took a different route through New Jersey. While the National Old Trails Road crossed the Delaware River at Trenton,[7] the Victory Highway crossed on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to Camden, heading northeast via Burlington and Hightstown to Perth Amboy roughly on the present U.S. Route 130 and County Route 615.[citation needed] After crossing the Victory Bridge into Perth Amboy, it turned east over the Outerbridge Crossing and through Staten Island to the Staten Island Ferry to Manhattan. After the Outerbridge Crossing was completed in 1928, the only two ferries remaining on the highway were the Staten Island Ferry and the San Francisco-Oakland Ferry at the other end.[8]
