We had 13 riders in the flag line on a overcast and increasingly chilly day in Elgin. Special thanks to the half dozen or so riders who arrived from the earlier Austin mission just in time for the flag line in Elgin. It was good to see Hadley, Juan, and Keith Alexander again also. And flag wrangler Don Ferguson, what can I say but thank you again.

Hope all made it home safely and were able to get warm. RIP, Howard StickMan Prinz. May God be with you, your family and friends.
