When I heard about a project to deliver new motorcycles to park rangers in Mongolia I immediately knew I had to be a part of it. As an avid motorcycle fan and rider, as well as a park ranger in Yosemite National Park, I was honored and inspired to be invited to participate in the Blue Waves Campaign Lake Hovsgol Motorcycle Rally.
When we were greeted at midnight by the rest of the Mongol Ecology Center team at the Chinggis Khaan international airport, I was put to ease immediately. We quickly set off on a whirlwind two week long adventure that I will cherish forever. I forged international friendships that will last a lifetime, with an experience that will always remain in my heart. I cannot wait to do it again in the future!
I felt truly honoured to be a part of the 2014 Blue Waves Rally Campaign. The best memory I have is the look of joy on the faces of the Lake Hovsgol Park Rangers when they realised that it was true, a group of foreigners were donating motorbikes to them, something they had heard about but never really believed would happen.
When I first heard about the ride, I thought ``well that should be fun!`` Then I realized that there was fund raising involved and started to worry about being able to raise enough money to make it possible to go. The fund raising turned out to be almost and much fun as the ride! I mean, who doesn't like to throw parties, and make fun of people for money?
