What made you decide to go on this trip- This all started last year in June when four of us went to lunch together after moving trampolines around. At first, this whole idea started out as a some day plan. It then grew into going across the country on old Hondas The moment it was decided that we would do it as a fundraiser for Marlowe. At that point I was all in and couldn't wait.

Dislikes- rutabega, whining, people who have no idea what they are doing (even though I am that guy on this trip)  

What do you think will be the most challenging part - Making it through Texas, that is a big state.

Challenge -  You set the price.  I do my best.

Challenge - If it not life threatening or having a high probability of long term injury, I will do my best to complete it. This is a fundraiser for a little girl. Let's keep it PG

Parting thoughts - Thank you so much to everyone who has donated and helped raise awareness for this cause.  Please do what can to help Marlowe thrive and let's build a Shane's Inspiration Playground in Mammoth Lakes.

Hometown - Branchburg, New Jersey

Where Do You Live - Mammoth Lakes, CA 

What made you decide to go on this trip- This all started last year in June when four of us went to lunch together. At first, this whole idea started out as a joke on mopeds making fun of me because I like vintage Vespa's. It then grew into going across the country on motorcylces. The moment I was definitely not backing out was when it was decided that we would do it as a fundraiser for Marlowe and her family. At that point I was completely committed. Even if I had to do it alone! Then our group grew to who we have on the trip today and amazingly, everyone stayed committed. The main topic of conversation during the winter was how to raise awareness for Marlowe's condition via crossing the country on our 1970's Honda motorcycles. I would have done it alone but adventures are more exciting with FRIENDS. 

What are you most looking forward to on this trip - As always on a road trip, I look forward to what awaits ahead and what's around every corner. Looking forward to riding motorcycles with great friends, and most importantly, doing it for Marlowe and bringing awareness about her condition. 

Likes - Having fun, laughing, road trips, hiking, taking photos, picking for antiques, and ice cream. 

Dislikes- Traffic while on a motorcycle (I haven't experienced that yet, but I can tell already that I will not like it), negativity, complainers, and cucumbers. Oh yeah, and watermelon. It looks so delicious but I can't stand watermelon.  

What do you think will be the most challenging part - Considering that none of us have ever been on a motorcycle in a group with other cars around, i think  the first couple of days when we're getting use to our motorcycles and learning how to ride in a group. But after that, it's smooth riding all the way to the West Coast.

Challenge - $20 each

Challenge - Topher not to gamble in Las Vegas

                    Ryan to sneak onto the X-Games course

                    Rob hug every Monster girl at the X-Games

                    Michael not to  drink a single Red Bull during the entire trip

                    Benny to wear daisy dukes for the entire day with the pockets coming out the    bottom while in Nashville, TN

                    Matt to be the first M.O.R.E rider to do a wheelie

                    Ben go up to a big burly dude with cowboy boots in Texas and tell him his (Ben's) belt buckle is not as cool as his 

Parting thoughts - Some people might call it dangerous, as some of us only have 10 actual days being on a motorcycle. However, I have no doubt it will be a comical and memorable trip to help Marlowe and her family navigate the obstacles they are facing.   Follow our journey, keep posting comments and keep spreading the love for Marlowe. The more hearts we can touch, the better chance Marlowe has to find her voice, walk on her own and find her feet to dance. Hopefully our trip reminds people to experience something new, get out and do something that you've always been wanting to do, and raise funds for Marlowe!

How Long have you been riding motorcycles – My Dad had an old Honda XR200 growing up. It was always way to big, when I finally got big enough, it stopped running shortly after. So maybe a dozen times.

When did you get your motorcycle license – Still don’t have it yet.

What made you decide to go on this trip – I always wanted to do a cross country trip on a moped. I saw a video of two guys that did it and they got chased by a Bear in Colorado. The Bear was much faster.  Motorcycles seemed like a better idea. The idea was thrown around by my friends, apparently I entered into a pact,  my friend Nacho eventually tattled to my wife and she said Yes. Things started moving real fast when the group decided to turn it into a fundraiser for my daughter.

What are you most looking forward to on this trip – The adventure, the challenges, the opportunities being afforded to my daughter. 

Likes – Family, Fun, Travel, and Snowboarding

Dislikes – Snakes, Spiders and Time cause I never have enough.

What do you think will be the most challenging part – Not seeing my girls for several weeks.  

Challenge  - I challenge myself to be the best Dad I can be, and give Marlowe every opportunity in this world to thrive.  To help her find her Voice to Sing, and her Feet to Dance.

Parting thoughts – Although the last couple of years of our lives have been challenging and hard, the way everyone has come together to help one special little girl is beyond belief. I am blessed to be the father of that girl, and I treasure every moment and am forever grateful. Thank you to everyone that has had love for Marlowe, your sacrifices have not gone unnoticed. Thank you to everyone that is spreading the word and donating to give our family the opportunity to give Miracles a Chance.  Hard work pays off, prayer pays off. THANKS

The park is there, the land is there, volunteers are ready, and funding has been set aside, work on the playground could start tomorrow.
