    Hi,..
    I want to put together a ride to help the kids in the Navajo reservations where I like to ride,...I know a lot of you love the Mexican Hat, Valley of the Gods, Moab rides too.... I was sitting there reading about some of the needs of the kids,.. and I thought,...well,..we don't really need much of an excuse to go ride,..and if you have a ride to benefit kids,..then that just makes it even better!
    I want to have a food drive and winter clothing drive for kids in need in some of the Navajo towns that we ride through (Utah, Az,CO,NV). They need jackets,hats,and non-perishable food items. We're running two "support" trucks from KBC Remodel Service,..mostly just to carry the donations since it's such a mellow ride,..(I don't think anyone ever broke a frame on the Valley of the Gods loop.)... The ride would be in the spring,..we would collect food and clothing donations in the trucks and deliver them. I could have waited until I had a "perfect" plan but I thought "screw it !...I'm just going to put it out there !".... I started a crappy web/blog site that I don't really know how to operate,..started collecting jackets from thrift stores,..and I'm off !... I figured I'd figure it out as I go and get help from other people on the way because we're burnin daylight !
    Check out www.lostforareason.com and let me know what you think ! ...

    If anyone has any ideas or wants to help,...that would be great!:clap

    PS,...none of the facebook twitter or other connections work ,..because I don't know how to connect them,.. I'm hoping to generate a dialogue and see what time works for the largest amount of people and what kinds of activities people would get into. I want to make it family thing as well.:ear

    Just be aware the BLM office/representative outta Bluff, Ut is very anti Offroad or anything motorized, including riding the Valley of the Gods road. Pm me if you want specifics.
