Orange County, CA-November 17, 2011

Mario Pinto, Shawn Alladio and Jonathan Hoover supporting the Purple Hearts Challenge

72 Hours: Today was our second day of K38 Shuffle. Mario Pinto who is a Captain in the Portuguese Navy and operates K38 Portugal and I skitted into action early in the morning. Mario washed all the gear, the K38 Training boats and organized the equipment from the Los Angeles Port Police training we completed yesterday. Now the boats are near ready for the awareness ride on behalf of the Phoenix Patriot Foundation. Tomorrow on the 18th we begin or orientation with the Purple Hearts in San Pedro!

The Men-The Ride: The group of five or six young men who will be making this ride will be accompanied, coached, and encouraged by PPF personnel as well as the experienced staff of K38 Water Safety throughout the trip. Intermediate stops for fueling and rest will be made at Dana Point, at Dana Point Jet Ski & Kayak Center, 34671 Puerto Place, Dana Point, between 9:15 and 10:30 AM and in Oceanside at the boat ramp,1299 N Pacific St. between 1:15 and 2:00 PM The ride concludes at the Coronado Community,1834 Strand Way, Coronado approximately 5 PM. A fundraiser will be held at 7:00pm at The Local in Downtown San Diego’s Gaslamp District with a $10 promotional. Ride times are approximate.

Our Team: Liquid Militia is getting the PR kits and gift bags sorted, and finalizing the branding for the Kawasaki JET SKI watercraft. The American Watercraft Association (AWA) sanctioned Socal Watercraft Club and PWCoffshore.com members are the primary workhorse behind the logistics of this ride, proving the spirit of volunteerism is the best way to open up the Thanksgiving Week. Brian Largarticha is doing just about everything. Kroll is en route. Cress is reading the 2012 Kawasaki display, Pirate is ready-set-go. Russell is on an organized standby and Mark is making veteran stickers, and we’re all ready for the transit! Well, almost, just a few more shuffles later…

Kawasaki’s Everywhere! Today Mario and I arrived at Kawasaki Motors Corporation and gathered up 4 Kawasaki JET SKI for the ride. We now have a total of 8 we are preparing. It was a busy afternoon. We’re spending a lot of time going over each JET SKI and preparing all the PPE (personal protective equipment) and logistics for the ride and the gear. 5 trucks and 5 trailers will be on the road, plus 2 additional trucks and trailers for their support boats. Thank you Trident Outdoor Adventures.

What Sleep? The gauntlet has been thrown and it’s full throttle with this stable of vehicles and vessels. We’re looking forward to meeting the supporters of our nation’s combat wounded, the additional staff, the fans and the folks that make the PWC community such a fun place to be. We hope to see you at one of the four ‘meet and greet’ PPF stops!
