Day 69 – Thanks Michelle and Lynt Hurdman

Just finished memorial service at Shenandoah Harley-Davidson in Staunton. It was a great first event. Our sincere thanks to the Hurdmans, Shenandoah Harley’s owners, for supporting this project. And a big thanks to General Manager Jonathan King, Kimberley Dritto, and the other staff members who made the event happen.

David from Staunton TV3 came covered the event and wrote a nice article that you can read and listen to online at http://www.whsv.com/home/headlines/Pony_Express_Rides_Again_To_Talk_About_Cancer_154552225.html

I left Shenandoah HD just after 1pm, heading to Washington, DC Harley-Davidson to connect with Mike Chalmers, who will be leading the Annapolis, MD to Mt. Version, VA segment on September 8th.

My route took me through rural Louisa County and it was an absolutely beautiful ride; warm, sunny, two lanes roads through forested sections that dappled the road with sunshine and shadows. It very much reminded me of the rural Virginia I enjoyed as a youngster.

I had dinner with Mike and learned about his prostate cancer story. One thing that struck me was the fact that his doctor did his needle biopsies without a local anesthetic. I have had a number of men tell this same story, and I can’t imagine how painful that must be. I also can’t understand how a doctor would be a biopsy procedure without using local anesthetic. My guess is that those that don’t have never had the experience.
