Party Prompt: What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
It started sprinkling some 80 miles outside Cheyenne and I knew I wouldn’t arrive until after dark. My ears were still burning from the lecture by a sheriff who’d pulled me over for speeding through open grazing territory. I couldn’t wait to get to the Holiday Inn, where my fellow Conga Riders were convening from across the US and Canada.
Pulling under the canopy at the Holiday Inn, I knew I was in the right place by the dozens of motorcycles festooned in pink. Yes, festooned—a couple even had feather boas wrapped around the handlebars.
I had eyes for one person and there she was in the middle of the action: Flo Fuhr, a vision in pink jeans, pink boots and a pink T-shirt. I jumped off my bike to give my newfound sister a hug. I made it!
This is the inimitable Flo Fuhr, co-founder of the Conga fundraisers for breast cancer research. In this video we talk about the three-day party that was Conga in Cheyenne, some of which I missed with my bad head cold, no doubt brought on from the cold ride in the rain.
