    We had 7 patriots give up part of their Saturday to stand for Mr. McShan at this short notice mission in downtown Austin. The rain ended in the early morning hours so we stayed dry on this warm partly cloudy day.

    We had one new rider this morning. Welcome, Jimster!

    Three riders stayed over to join the procession from the church to the cemetery near Elgin. Thank you Soup, Chuck, and Dave.

    RIP Otis McShan, USAF veteran. Thank you for your service.
