Today we rode 49 miles from Milan, Michigan to Curtice, Ohio. We had 3 guest riders today: Scott and Tammy Henegar and Jeremiah. We rode a tough 30 miles of dirt roads to get to Mr. Henegar’s Uncle’s house for lunch. After lunch we rode though Toledo but had to go on a small detour because there was a carnival in town. Luckily a nice man on stilts helped point us in the right direction. Just before arriving in Curtice, we picked up Braedan, a 7 year old with DMD, and he rode in the duet with his mom, then his dad. When we finally arrived at the Henegar household we were greated by a crowd of people and a delicious barbeque. We met Tom Sulfaro, a 41 year old with DMD, and talked about some 53 year olds with DMD that he met online and our similar hopes for the future of DMD research and a cure!  We also met a young boy with DMD named Jackson McNutt.  We spent the rest of the day swimming in the giant pond in Braedan’s backyard. For dessert we went to a local ice cream shop and ordered a 5-foot-long banana split! It was so big we couldn’t finish it. After dessert Braedan took us into a field where we caught some snakes. A fun, exciting way to end day 2 of the 2013 JettRide!
