May 31, 2015 Chicago, IL to Hollywood, CA (Ground Zero)

Hard to believe it’s less than 24 hours from the start of the Dads Honor Ride.  Two of our crew members; daughter Addie and Tuskegee Airman & friend Lawton “Wilk” WIlkerson made the uneventful trip with me from ORD to LAX.  We headed to Hollywood, where we were greeted by good friend Jamie Masada, founder of the the world famous Laugh Factory, LA’s oldest (36 years) stand up comedy club.  We had some good laughs and a nice reception including some heartfelt remarks from those in attendance, including Tom Dreesen, Allison & Greg Bishop, Lincoln Baker, Courtney Riley, Chris Miller,
