However, your report has me pondering a Fourth of July trip to Southern Ontario in a couple of weeks with the wife (unfortunately via cage due to time constraints) .... If the good Lord's willing and the creeks don't rise, you can count me in for next year Mattster. BTW - I finally made my donation to Kevin via PayPal @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I encourage each and everyone who can afford to give, even if just a little bit, to find it in their heart to help out, whether you ride in the rally or not.
I was fortunate to have a few minutes talking to Kevin and his family at the bbq after the event. What he has overcome, and the challenges he still faces are mind boggling to somebody whose never had to deal with them. His wife and son (who spent most of the bbq stealing other ppl's watermelon slices and ripping off facts about dinosaurs that would make a paleontologist do a double take.) are no less remarkable. Watching his son, who looked to be about 3, help his dad out without being asked or even looked at. It's just something he does because it's his dad.
Matt mentioned that he wasn't sure if they're would even be an UpperCan 400 next year, but I'm thinking they're will be. His efforts on behalf of Kevin and his family run close to his heart. But I can't imagine how much work their is in preparing and event like that.
Lets hope it's on for next year and we can both tilt a few afterwards.
