If you're ever past Unity, Or
You can pay your respects to Mikefsu. There is a road side memorial, 2.5 miles past Unity on Hwy 26, that Buz and Mark built. Mark, Buz, Candiya and I went out placed it there last Sunday.

Here are some pictures from that day.

Hey Willow, next time I get to ride with you, and If I ever ride with any of the rest of you guys, I owe each one of you a simple genuine handshake. Thank you guys, this is a very great thing you did.

Above and beyond for a friend never seems above and beyond at all.

Great Job Guys

One measure of Mike's character is the quality of those he chose for friends.
Good (and difficult) job, you four. Again, best wishes to you.

Good work keeping his memory alive, wish I had the opportunity to meet him.

All the pictures look great, the last one really captures it for me.

What a day that was... sad, strange, scary, beautiful, quiet and, ultimately, comforting.

I have some photos to add.













This is a photo that I took while sitting at the base. I wanted to remember the feel of the sun on my back, the pale, gritty soil beneath my fingers, and Mike smiling down on me.





And here are a few photos from the ride home.

If anyone happens to know in advance that they'll be stopping by the site, could you shoot me a PM? I have a request.
