Although I had never swapped E-mails or chatted with Erold, I felt as if I knew him. I heard from many and read some postings of his plans to ride around the USA for six months. At the time, I thought "how blessed he must be to be able to do what I've always wanted to do."
In a strange twist of fate, George McConnel and I were riding together to Deal's Gap last Saturday afternoon. George was excited to finally meet Erold this Summer. I was happy that George was getting the opprotunity to meet such a man. Then George sends me an E-mail yesterday to state that Erold had his accident.
The only thing we can take comfort in is Erold was doing one of the things he loved to do at the moment of his departure. God's speed Erold - you will be missed by more than you could imagine.
Ride Safe, Ride Smart.
