Going to Gunny's retirement party
YEP!!! I canceled my Harley trip to Vegas to go. Also the Salute to American Graffitti is that weekend in Petaluma. Most of the actors show up.
Thinkin about it.  My daughter is a sportswriter for the Napa Register and she usually covers it (and) gets me tickets!!!
She even gets to go to their press conferences and interview the riders. She loves young Ben (she's 25 and single) and I like Mat.
