8:10 am – Briefing
8:15 am – KSU for 1 hr ride to the funeral home.
Wx: High 67 deg F, mostly sunny
Notes: This is an approx. 1 hr ride between Cameron and CTSVC with no stops. It is not yet clear if there will be an LEO escort. We are NOT road guards and do not perform law enforcement traffic control duties. Centex PGR will have a flag line at the cemetery. Austin riders will enter the gate and pull to the side to allow the procession to proceed. We will then depart.
It was a bit chilly this morning for the eight riders on seven motorcycles who rode with respect for Mr. Shuffield’s service to our country. We had LEO escort most of the way, and where we didn’t was open country road. It was encouraging to see oncoming vehicles pull to the shoulder along the route.
Thanks to all who attended today. RIP Mr. John Louie “Bubba” Shuffield.
