Greg Heim broke two bones in his left leg this morning in a motorcycle accident.  This leg is cancelled, good luck getting the baton to Russell, KS.

Just kidding, Greg did break his leg, but I have volunteered to captain the leg.  Waiting to hear back from the Chairman if this is okay.  We'll get the baton to Russell.  I went to see Greg and we are planning to meet after his surgery.  We'll still have a great time, and raise a couple to Greg at the end of the day.

A very HISTORICAL site is being added to the ride!  As far as I know, this site has not ever been visited on the V2V on the Veterans Leg.  This will not add more than 15 minutes to the ride.  The site honors all branches of the armed services and POW-MIA's.  Plus there is a memorial that is very hard to believe to be found in Topeka, KS.  I would guess 80% of the people living in Topeka are not even aware of this landmark.

For those of you close enough to meet us, I will post an easy spot for us to find you, and easy for you to find on the East side of Topeka.  We'll definitely take pictures to share with others.  I am sure future Veterans Leg Captains will include this site on future rides, it is that cool.

Done with the teaser.  Next post will be about where to meet the riders on Friday.

Oh, and I am talking to that politician brother-in-law of mine about having a special guest meet us there.
