Carylon and I left North Carolina bound for Stone Mtn GA on Apr 28th arriving at the host hotel that afternoon.

We had rolled in a day early in anticipation of the Annual Confederate Memorial Day service to be held at

Stone Mtn on Saturday Apr 30th. I helped my brothers post the colors on the flag pole and it was a beautiful

sight in the clear skies above Georgia. Many of our supporters came and we had a large crowd for the ceremony.

We had a great number of riders participate in the ride to Stone Mtn. I would estimate 140+ and also 4 wheelers.

The Ga Division SCV and the Mechanized Cavalry working with law enforcement did an outstanding job escorting the

the long convoy of bikes and other vehicles thru 5 jurisdictions, blocking roads and making sure everyone was safe.

I have to give a large shout out to their OCR ladies who worked very hard to prepare a meal for us. . I commend all

involved. You did an awesome job! I have to give a large shout out to their OCR ladies who worked very hard to

Carylon and I left NC for the second time to go to the Annual HOD Run hosted by the Alabama SCV Mechanized Cavalry.

 This year it was held in Dauphin Island AL. These boys plan to keep you busy and engaged for their event.

They had rides everyday. Thursday was Admiral Semmes house in Mobile, the Catholic cemetery and Joe Cain's grave.

 Friday we ate in Biloxi then tour the presidential library, museum and Beauvior home of Jefferson Davis followed

by a stop at the Old Mill located in Theodore AL. Saturday we visited Ft Gaines, and Magnolia Cemetery where 7

Confederate generals are buried. There are 1100 of our soldiers and sailors who died during the war buried there

plus many others who died later. The evening meal was a Crawfish Shrimp boil with all the fixiins. LT TomCat was

our DJ playing some fine Southern music. I truly enjoyed myself and look forward to next year’s!
