1st Annual Country Jam Poker Ride!
Wow! What a fun Friday I had!
I went on the 1st Annual Country Jam Poker Run. We rode about 130 miles in a loop across the Grand Mesa. There are over 200 lakes and the pine trees smelled sooo good! It was a gorgeous ride!
We had 5 stops for Poker cards. I had a 2, 4, 7, 9, and 10 all unsuited. It can't get much worse of a hand than that! LOL! But I did win some great Raffle prizes, most of which I donated back to the charity. The Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation. They were the cause we were supporting on the ride. It is to help Wounded Warriors and other Soldiers enjoy time camping at a special camp in the wilderness. However I did keep the raffle tickets for Moses Leather in Grand Junction! That's my favorite store for Biker gear! It's an awesome shop run by Moses and Nancy. They have so much leather gear and biker stuff! They are always so generous and donate gift certificates to the motorcycle rides for charity. Stop by and check out Moses Leather next time you ride through Grand Junction!
The poker run started and ended at Allen Unique Autos. Tammy Allen is the owner of one of the MOST AMAZING car collection ever! She is a wonderful lady, I had so much fun visiting with her. She has a great heart, and is a very interesting gal, and so passionate about the cars and other interests she is involved in. We enjoyed a great Bar-B-Que while hanging out in her Car Museum.
Then rode over to the Country Jam Festival and spent the evening with all the Country Stars enjoying their performance. It was Military Day at the Jam and the performances were awesome! We had special parking at the VIP gate for our bikes, and full access to the huge Country Club tent, that was air cooled with a free food buffet, snacks, and discounted drinks. Then back stage passes to meet Trace Adkins! ALL of the interviews with the Country Stars were done in the Country Club Tent just a few feet from our table. It was so much FUN!
Dang! I finally get a pic with Trace Adkins and I have FLAT hair from my doo-rag and my motorcycle ride. What's a girl to do?! Answer: SMILE, SMILE, SMILE! Ain't he a HANDSOME HUNK!!! Whew! We were hoping he would make it in time to go on the ride with us, but he didn't. We're gonna try again next year, The activities manager for the stars had a bike for him, but he just got in too late to go. :(
Grand Mesa is one of the many treasures less than an hour from my home. It is the world's largest flat top mountain, with over 200 lakes! There are deer, elk, moose, bear, and lots of wildlife, so you cruise along nice and easy and enjoy the view!
