My motorcycle ride of 26,264 miles took 12 months to complete. Our journey through Alzheimer's Disease lasted for several years. My six children and I cared for Lois at home through the entire journey. She passed away on March 27, 2014. When the kids asked, "What will you do now Dad?" I said, "I think I'll go for a little ride." We discovered there is indeed life after Alzheimer's and Lois would have wanted us to live it fully. This we have tried to do and the stories of both the motorcycle ride and the journey through Alzheimer's Disease are told in this book. Our six children, their spouses, the 19 Grandchildren, and the dozen or more Great Grandchildren all shared in the ride across America through the www.RightLaneAmerica.com Blog and through the Facebook group Where In The World Is Grandpa. From skidding out of control at 70 MPH on the interstate, to inching my way up a coastal mountain range in dense fog at 10 MPH, this was an epic adventure. To the thousands of people who saw the sign that read: “80 Year Old Iron Butt Challenge Rider - 1000 miles in 24 Hours” and gave me a smile, a wave and a Thumbs Up, I say Thanks for sharing the ride with me. To the members of the United Sidecar Association and the Iron Butt Association, we say thanks for your support and encouragement. Sharing the adventure with the children and grand children was as important as the ride itself. As they had shared in our family journey through the abyss of Alzheimer’s Disease, so they now discovered with me, there is Life After Alzheimer’s and that we should live it fully and well. The year long motorcycle trek across America was a great adventure for an 80 year old biker. Now it’s your turn. I hope you enjoy the ride as much as I did. May your ride be and long, and may your Love Song Never End. Del Lonnquist
