Taking a tour?

We’ve not been touring much in the last 9 months, with Carole and The YesWeCan CamperVan both needing an overhaul!!!!

Yet we’re always talking to people about MG Awareness whenever we get the chance.

A couple of weeks ago we took our first trip out since last August.

Dexter in Clearlake March 2014

Arriving in Clearlake, northern California, it was already a hot day for mid March!

the temperature gauge inside the campervan (put there by the first owner before Carole) showing a cool 90 degrees!

Stopping to get a cool drink at McDonalds, we were asked about our MG signs by a group of bikers who were out touring for the day.

It was reassuring to get their interest and they said that if we organize an event to get attention for autoimmune diseases, there’d be plenty of bikers to ride along and add their support!. Grrrreat!

Then last weekend at the Unitarian Universalist Church in Walnut Creek, CA, a young man came over to look at the signs on our VW and asked “What does MG Mean?” … and then talked about his mother who has another, even lesser known, auto-immune disease, called Inclusion body myositis. There are far too many of these AI diseases nowadays, affecting 50 million people in America alone!!!

We hope that in 2014 others will join us in our drive to spread the word across the miles to help those with autoimmune diseases. They sure need all the support they can get. See VW4Causes for more information. THANKS!
