How long have you been riding motorcycles: Well, I rode a few times on dirt bikes as a kid, a few more times on a moped in college, and my own moped has run for a total of 2 hours. I also put some time in on pit bike in the trailer park

When did you get your motorcycle license: I am waiting on the paper work. Let's just hope it shows up in time, or I guess I am going for this with my permit!

Other gear on the trip: I am bringing; Vans shoes, Volcom tees (they are so soft!), Von Zipper sunnies and goggles, Biltwell Gringo helmet, Brigdale socks,skateboard, Levis 501s, my step dads leather jacket, the leatherman my dad gave me, and my sweet new wedding ring! Thanks Melissa!

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.

What are you most looking forward to on this trip - This is trip of a life time.  I look forward to great times with friends on the road and doing my small part to help a sweet little girl and raise awareness about her and many others' struggles.

Likes - Skateboarding, old Hondas, fat cat, skiing, and adventures.

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.
