Vic, Sam, and Tom are now well into their “Lucky 7” trek around America. On Friday they stopped in at Scottish Rite Supreme Council headquarters in Lexington, MA, where they rode in with three riders joining them for the day. They hope to have others with them for whatever portion of the trip they have time for. After leaving Lexington, they headed for Providence, and then on to Connecticut.
Over the weekend they left New England and headed south where they encountered some pretty heavy downpours and some warmer weather. In Kentucky they met up with members of the “Widow’s Sons” Masonic motorcycle club of Tennessee.
Despite hitting that one pothole, things are going great.
Since they began on Thursday, they have passed through 17 states. Just 32 more to go.
Wednesday, June 10
JUST ONE DAY TO GO
Beginning tomorrow follow Bros. Vic Frederick, Sam Wandzilak and Tom Gammon as they spend a month traveling to 49 states raising money for the 32° Masonic Learning Centers for Children. It is the seventh such trip that Vic has made – thus the name of his ride. Over the next few weeks we will follow them across the nation. Here on this site Victor Frederick will post blogs every few days and, using Twitter, he will provide shorter, more frequent updates. We will also report his fundraising successes using the odometer on this page.
Adding to the fun, watch for fun facts about each state that our motorcycle caravan passes through. You may not have read about them in history books – in fact, they could be called “Infrequently Asked Questions” – but you should find them interesting and entertaining.
Vic and the gang leave Pottstown, PA at 7:00 a.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, June 11. By day’s end they should be in Kittery, ME.
By Friday evening, they will have covered all of New England and headed south.
The trek continues until July 11, at which time 49 states will have been visited.
Be sure to bookmark this site, come back often to track our very own motorcycle gang, and help Vic, Sam, and Tom raise money for a worthy cause.
