2011 God Speed Blanket Run

 For the past four years, I've been traveling to Brownsburg, Indiana on the first Saturday of December to participate in the God Speed Blanket Run. This was the 9th year of the event, and owner Thom Ophof always organizing an amazing day for everyone.

The idea is simple. Organize a cool get together for friends and gearheads while making a difference for some area shelters. For the "cost" of a new or gently used blanket, participants are given a map and then lead on some really cool tours of area automotive related businesses and collections.

 The day always starts out with coffee and donuts at God Speed Rides in Brownsburg, Indiana. It's always cool to see old friends and mill around Thom's shop to see the kind of cool work he is up to. Here is an example of the kind of quality metal fabrication happening at God Speed.

 Come back in the coming days to view pictures and commentary from this year's event.
