About 8 months ago I thought I had the system gamed . Shawn and Lance from RawHyde Adventures were hosting an Adventure Night at the Ruddy Duck Restraunt/Brewery in Solomans Maryland. I had met the guys back in March of 2012 when they gave a RawHyde presentation at Bobs BMW and attended one of the Adventure Riding Clinics they presented. Interesting duo to say the least Anyhow it seemed like a fun night out and the Mrs. (Philygal) was up for the ride and wanted to go as well. I had also heard that in an effort to promote the event, they said they would be giving away a free class to RawHyde Adventures to whomever traveled the furthest to their gathering As luck would have it, my job had me on travel in Virginia Beach till day of the event. I figured this was great. I could ride up from Virginia Beach, pick up Philygal and continue on to Southern Maryland, at just over 200 miles, I figured I would be a shoe-in. Who would ride farther than that for a couple hours at a local micro brewery? I arrived at the event after a beautiful day riding to find out some nut case had ridden all the way from Chicago .WTF dammit Oh well, it had been a great day riding, we got dinner out away from the kids and met up with a few of our friends. The RawHyde group had a few door prizes to give out at the event, maybe I would get lucky and win a T-shirt or something It appears that my luck held out but it wasnt a T-shirt I won, it was their grand prize They were giving away a second RawHyde Class. Now, as much as I find RawHyde Adventures interesting It was not something I would have taken on my own. Between the cost of getting there, riding a bike cross country and back or renting one and the class itself going there didnt fit my budget. But winning a paid class .that put it in reach. Even the wife was happy I won .
