Day 157

My Sunday was spent with family and friends on an ATV/Ranger Poker Run. So much fun and it was for a good cause! (google Polaris Ranger if you are unsure of what I'm talking about)

Mom and I rode with my cousins. Hopefully we'll be able to afford our own ranger in the near future, but until that time, we enjoy riding with them! It was $5 a person to ride & $5 for a "taco bar" buffet at the end of the ride. GPS Tracker said we rode 77 miles. It sprinkled off and on throughout the day, but never much to be a nuisance. It was a cooler day, so it was really a great day to ride! The money we raised benefits 2 organizations. The first group, Safe Passage, is a shelter for domestic violence. The second group, (can't remember the name or if it even has an official name!), takes disadvantaged youth on once in a lifetime trips such as a week camping and hiking in the Grand Canyon. So proud to be part of a group of people that donated $330 to EACH group...that's right folks, a total of $660!!

our start/stop point - my Uncle's business (tractor pulling indoor track, go-kart track, and home of local ranger rides)

Here are a few pictures of our day! I took almost 100 shots and posted 50 on facebook. Had hoped to take more, but 1 group got lost (funny story since the leader of that group did a run the day before & he's a tow truck driver who should know the area well!) and the other had to make a few extra stops due to equipment problems, so I never got to meet up with them after the second stop and grab some pics of their groups.There's always next time, right? ha

listening about where our money is going!
