Lets do a ride for Vet. Chris Kyle and friend?

If you guys haven't heard the greatest sniper in American history was gunned down along with his friend Chad Littlefield. I had a idea of doing a charity ride for the two heros. Let me know who would be in for a ride maybe at the Badlands? Plans will come if enough people want to do it. Lets go jeepers come together for a couple of American heros!!!

This is a sad story, This man is the greatest snipper ever in Anerica.
I read his book last year and I couldn't put it down. It usally takes me a few weeks to read a book like that but I read that one on a couple of days.

I would definitely be down for doing a run for a true American hero and fellow service member. Unfortunately that is a long drive for me.

Would love to do a jeep run for a fellow service member (former navy gunners mate/petty officer 2nd class/surface warfare). As long as stock jeeps are allowed and its on friday-Saturday.

It'd be neat to do a nationwide ride. From east coast to west, or vice versa. People can jump in and out along the way. So you only have to cross your state if you wish, for those that would live along the route. Of course that is highly unpractical and would require at least a team making the whole journey for navigation and organization purposes, but it would be pretty sweet. I definitely want to do it one day.

I briefly thought about something like that but then realized as a full time student with 27 credit hours this semester it is not a bit practical. Lets keep it goin guys and get more people to make this happen.

That would be awesome but there's not really anywhere to go wheeling in or around my part of the state...

No, ride, not wheeling. Can't stop to wheel in every state. That would take forever. 1, maybe 2 wheeling spots somewhere on the ride.

don't really have any yet except that it will probably be on a Saturday at the badlands if I get enough people to do this. I want to make sure i get enough people to join before i set any plans in stone so they are up in the air still. I can guarantee it will be a fun day and for a great cause so put the word out and have people report back here I hope to make it happen in like two to three weeks. Lets rally together!!!!
