Road Trip to Bass Pro Shop, Louisville Kentucky

My Honda ACE (American Classic Edition) was a beautiful motorcycle. I bought the bike from my brother Donnie who lives in Texas. I drove to Louisville Kentucky with my two sons Daniel and David to meet my brother and pick up the bike.

The boys still talk about that trip today. I drove a Chevy Avalanche Truck at the time. I put the back seat down and let them camp out in the bed of the truck which had a hard top cover over it. They had a flashlight, some games probably their Nintentdo DS and their sleeping bags. It was an adventure, especially when the tail gate flew open while going down the interstate.

We had never been to Bass Pro Shop, we met my brother there got lunch , looked around the Multi-story building at all the hunting and fishing gear. We played in the shooting gallery watched the trout in the artificial stream and the largemouth bass in the tanks. It was tons of fun. We loaded the motorcycle in the trailer and headed home to Ohio.

Our lives are not about arriving at a final destination but the journey along the way and the stories we tell of those journeys. What adventurous journey are you on today?

Thrift Store - GRAND OPENING

We are accepting donations for our new thrift store. We have just signed a lease on property in Dawn, Va. We have leased the old Dyson store on Route 301. Our Grand opening is August 2010. We are accepting any donations of clothes, household goods, furniture, books, sports equipment, tools, etc. All donations made to ROCsolid Outreach Center are tax deductable. I'm hoping pictures of our progress will be posted soon along with more updates about the ministry and opportunities for services in the future.
God Bless You
