The end of #BestOfTheRoad rally is only the beginning

We used to measure the significance of a journey by how many fun things we got to do, the great things we got to eat and the beautiful things we got to see.

Since our Rand McNally/ USA TODAY Best of the Road trip this summer, we measure the significance of our journey by the friends we made, the lives we touched & how we changed and grew as people.  We have the utmost respect  for the four other teams we we competed against, Rogue Riders, Fresh Traveler, Road Bros and Team Two for the Road.  Each team inspired us, encouraged us and we quickly went from competitors to comrades. We wish them each continued success and safe travels. 

What can we say about the RV crew. They are nothing short of amazing and some of the hardest working and most talented team of people we have ever had the pleasure to meet and get to know.

And, it is with our sincerest and heartfelt gratitude that we say THANK YOU to Watertown NY, Duluth GA, Deland FL, Enterprise AL, Gainesville TX and Mandan ND The Six MOST PATRIOTIC SMALL TOWNS in AMERICA!  You have touched our hearts, changed us for the better and each and everyone of you are heroes in our eyes!

    It sure was fun meeting the crew and we hope to see you soon back in Enterprise.

    Our sweet town is still glowing. Many folks have continued to wave their flags in front of their homes and businesses, us included. We have moved on to other worthwhile projects, but the buzz is still there, how much fun it was having you all in town! Hope the rest of your summer is a blast and that you continue to make sweet memories just like the ones here in Gainesville, TX.

  3. Jackie Zimmerer says:

    It was such a blast! Especially the flash mob! The looks on yall’s faces were priceless. Funny, though, patriotism in Gainesville really is “what we do”!

  4. Ann Farrell says:

    Loved watching your journey!! Meeting all the magnificent people you saw along the way and the places they call home was heartwarming. What amazing memories for you all.

  5. Marlo Anderson says:

    Rick and Sandi, you have touched many lives in the community of Mandan, ND as well. You are welcome back anytime. There are still many reminders of your visit in our community. Since our community already has over 4 times the national average in military service to our country, we wonder if that will increase even more now. Also, thank you “Ruby” for providing safe transportation to our new friends.
