Day 9 Arrive at Meridian and Tour VA hospital set up by Jeff Middlemas  Veteran Affairs Police. Pat met Jeff through warmshowers.com. Jeff, a avid cyclist, Air Force veteran, and works at the VA. The Boise VA is an historical site built in 1862, with many of the original buildings remaining. Jeff arranged the tour, arranged for a fishing trip for Dave, On our day off met us at our site with 6+ friends and brought food, barb-b-qed for us, entertained us.  For today, he arranged for us to participate in Boise annual All Veteran Welcome Home event. Finally he rode with us and led us out of town. We owe a lot to Jeff. A lot more to follow about our stay in Boise.

Thanks to all of Jeff's friends that showed up to visit with us.

  1. Jeff and Scott are holding the patch from Astoria P.D. I am trying to get a photo in each state we ride through with the Astoria patch and send to Chief Curzon. I am also collecting a patch in each state to send back to Chief Curzon.
