Run For The Wall XXII 2010: Day 7 – Wentzville, MO to Corydon, IN

Today started out with clear skies once again, after we got up and loaded our bikes at 0-dark-thirty.  After a wonderful breakfast at the Wentzville VFW, we had our morning meeting with about 300 bikes at this point.  We then paraded through Wentzville and had a presentation at the Wentzville Veterans Memorial with a color guard by the Fire Department and the local high school band played the National Anthem and God Bless America.   We then traveled to the Jefferson Barracks at the St. Louis VA Hospital and had a presentation and visited with the patients.  This is a long-standing stop on the  Central Route.   From there, it was on to Huck’s Truck Stop in Mt. Vernon, Illinois for fuel and gas.  The owners of Huck’s have been having the run stop there since its inception.  Our dinner and overnight location is Corydon, Indiana.  Unfortunately, I don’t have any pictures of the fish fry dinner in Corydon because I had to take care of an accident scene (fender bender, no injuries) between some bikes.

Tomorrow, we arrive in a place known as “Almost Heaven”.
