I will register my interest. I suspect it might be best to offer to go in the truck to help carry donations. One of my staff, Deere - our mechanic - may be interested in riding and together, we can offer back-up for the other riders, or carrying capacity, if needed. Rider's Corner is always happy and willing to "give a bit back" to those people who need it most.
