Message to Kilo: I will be riding back to Indiana after the National. You are welcome to ride with me if you are still going to Washington, DC. You are welcome to stay at my place overnight then ride on the next day to Washington.

Good morning Boss Skinner, Officers, Patched Members, Prospects & Support! On my way to VA Hospital at Indy to see the foot doctor. Only good thing about being diabetic: free shoes & socks, pedicures every 3 months & foot check every 3 months.

I am ready for Spring but we have snow coming in the next few days.

Just refinanced my VA Loan. The rate for a 30-year loan is 3.5% but I’m making additional principal payment each month to pay it off in 12-years so the effective rate is 1.65%.

I just remembered it is Dues time. I need to check the address to send it to.

I think I am going to get Stage 4 done on the trike. Even though they suggested at Harley I “might not want the additional power” meaning you might be too old to handle it! Haha.

Well I’m almost at the VA, oh I’m not texting & driving.....my wife offered to drive because “it is too risky” for me to drive 50 miles in the dark. 😎😎.

Zoot signing off! See you all at the Annual Run.

From: Wayne W. Watts sr. kilo . Good morning to Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members, Prospects, and Support. It seems that I like every one else is chomping at the bit for the summer nationals. I am looking forward to making this ride, and I hope it’s with my NW president RAIDO. When I last talked to him, he indicated that we might meet up with a couple of members to ride with on the ride to the national. I am looking forward to meeting everyone that can make the trip. Like most prospects, I would like to put a face “person “to the name that I have talked to on the internet. There is a question that I would like to ask our National President Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members “Brother’s” and prospects. Is there any reason that when the NAM VETS NOMAD MC National is over, and we depart to the four wind’s, that I cannot, or should not, continue on to Washington DC. The reason for this side trip, is that two years ago I was going to make the ride back to DC. For the last Rolling Thunder, and go to the Wall, and pay my respects to some Brown Water Brothers. Unfortunately, my trip was cut short at Rock Springs WY. There’s where I hit the wall. They told me that my kidneys were starting to shut down, and by the time they let me out of the hospital there was not enough time to make the rest of my trip to DC. So, if there is no reason, I would like any advice, or company from anyone that is going that way, or would like to ride with me to the Wall, I would appreciate it, especially from someone that I can call Brother, that understands why I need to go to the Wall, so that I can close this chapter of my life. If you happen to read this, and any of it falls in your agenda, please let me know. Till we meet this summer, don’t push it, wait till the ice on the roads have thawed. Ride safely, watch out for the idiots that don’t see us, and enjoy that wind therapy. We are going to need it. Drive On Brothers. kilo

Evening to Boss Skinner, to all patch holders, prospects, and support
Jest wanted to drop a line to let every one know that the sun, yes the sun came out in the afternoon. Guess what? I got on my green girl, and we went for a ride. I had to run through all buttons to remember what they did . Once we got going ,God did it feel good. Put her back to bed, and we will wait for the next sunny day.
Safe riding when you can get it. Kilo

Boss Skinner, National & Regional Officers, All the Patched Members—my Brothers, Prospects, & Support.....Hello to one & all! Things are good in my little corner of the world, good but not great. My Uncle died from the COVID the day after Christmas. He was the last member of my Mother’s immediate family. I think my health is improving, I feel better physically. I have been getting work done on the Trike, Stages 1, 2, & 3 are installed & it is running really good. I have found a local guy who does powder coating & other appearance work. When he finishes it will be pretty much all black. There is a guy near here who is the one to see to get seat work done. I want something done that will allow me to ride in comfort but I haven’t met with him yet. I tried a Mustang seat on another bike but it was too much. It was about 3” thicker than the OEM seat so it was almost impossible to get my leg over the seat so I don’t want to make that mistake again. Rascal wants to get his Prospect induction done prior to the National so we are looking at end of May, 1st week of June. He wants to go to West Virginia for a couple of days to get it done so SAA RTO has been helping him with the planning. I plan to ride over from Indiana to meet Rascal, RTO,& maybe one other person. Then if the world doesn’t end before National we (the NE Region) will be ready to go in June. One thing I want to make sure I do this time is get pictures of everyone so I know who everyone is in a crowd. I got my first ride of the year on the 2nd. It was a little brisk, 22 degrees.

Boss Skinner I read all the messages I was behind on the web page. 😎😎

That is about all that is happening. Just looking forward to the National Run.

If anyone is coming through Indiana & needs a place to stop let me know, always glad to see some Brothers.

we have the patches at LAAM's don't want to send them out just yet due to USPS being over loaded soon as things get back to a little more normal you will have them.

Happy new year Boss Skinner, regional Boss's, brothers, prospects, & support.
well it's here 2021, lets not repeat 2020 or follow it's guide lines.
Hoping everyone is doing well or as well as to be expected.
I have a few small issues thats getting resolved before it gets out of hand, I have a cyst in my neck about the size of a golfball, no real problem as of yet, interested in knowing if it has anything to do with agent orange.
Been couped up for the last several weeks, no where to really go, the Tyrant of Pa lock us down for the third time, killing more family owned business's, yet his cabinet business survives..
On a good note the days are getting longer each day, before you know it spring will here and then the national will be upon us.
Hey boss if it's ok, D9 & myself and I'm guessing for prospect Rascal would like to stay at the resort down the road if possible..
Not much to report, wishing everyone a wonderful new year

Want to make a short response to Prospect Kilo.
1st. Yes, we are a Brotherhood.
2nd. You found someone who showed you a different way, a better way, and you got to spend 50 years with her ...You Were Blessed !
3rd.. There is a say'n "I'm not as good as I once was, but I'm as good once as I ever was" ... so let's do it "one more time".
4th.. You made the comment "I felt that I could not fulfill my responsibilities as a prospect." ...... you paid that price some 50 years ago.
Welcome Home Brother

Good morning to Boss Skinner, Regional Presidents, Patched Members, Prospects, and Support. I have had a couple of days to come up with what, and how I want this letter to be able to let all of you know and feel what I am feeling now. I am going to make this a real short background. As a kid I was shuffled from one place, then to another. As I grew up the only person that I cared about was myself. Thank GOD my wife was able to show me what honest caring, and love was. This she was able to give me for over 50 yrs. Her passing jest over a year ago I thought that I would not see or feel that again. Over the last 6 month’s that I have been getting to know the people that make up the NAM VETS NOMAD MC, I found that these men really understand the meaning of “brother hood”. Nothing could have brought this out for me see any more than what this group of men that make up the leadership of the NAM VETS NOMAD MC did for a Vietnam brother. Several weeks ago I requested that I be removed as a prospect, due to the increasing advancement of my Parkinson. I felt that I could not fulfill my responsibilities as a prospect. Instead of accepting my request, they showed me that their understanding of brotherhood went to far greater depth’s than jest words. These officers that were elected by the members of this MC, stood up and took another look at a Vietnam vet that’s not 100% prospect material. Kind of like a old book that’s been read a lot. I feel that these men opened their hearts and saw a Nam vet that wanted to belong to this brother hood, but felt he would be a hindrance, not an asset. They have asked me to continue as a prospect, and to participate in the club functions as much as I can. I can’t say thank you enough, it’s a small fraise, but to me I have my heart attached to it. To all the officers that went out of their way for another vet., to all the patched members, my brother prospects, and support, I thank you, and wish all of you a very HAPPY NEW YEAR. Wayne (KILO) Watts sr.

In a sense we are stepping into a new beginning with all our new Patch Holders and Prospects.
This Club is on 🔥.
In great part to the efforts of our Club Leadership.
Boss Skinner, who has fought an additional battle no one wants to tackle and has come out the winner and still manage to steer us into continued growth and stature in Veteran MC world.
Brother Dutch who has stood tall, assisted Boss and gave outstanding advice on our road of ever changing challenges we have.
Brother LAAM who inspite of his own health issues has kept the books up, keeping patch requests going and shipped. No small task Brother, we applaud you and your tenacity.
Brother SlingBlade keeping SAA duties up and being watchful for our security and well being of our Club.
With new Regions being added and new faces in leadership in those areas warms my heart as we all march on in our Brotherhood.
Its been my honor to participate and be a part of this Stellar NAM VET NOMAD MC

Greetings Brothers, Supports, Prospects, future Prospects & well-wishers!!

Getting ready to get out of Cali and head back to our AO in the morning.

It's been a great trip. Sure a few glitches here and there, with the RV having an odd water leak, a bald tire, and some other minor issues. The good news is, she runs like a scalded dog, the generator now works and we have TV. well mostly on the TV, can't get the satellite to connect properly. Oh well, We didn't travel 2800 miles to watch TV. Oh and the best news, rear brakes are like new, fronts are less than half worn.

Singer and I are looking forward to National, but who isn't right? I'm really looking forward to seeing Singer getting some wind therapy on her new to her trike. I think it'll be really good for her. I know getting some wind therapy of my own will certainly help. I really can't believe I've had my Indian almost five months and it's not even broken 500 miles. I remember when I bought my 2013, I had more than five-hundred miles on it in less than two days. Times change I guess.

Here's hoping 2021 is much better for everyone than 2020 has been, The 'rona, murder hornets, flying sharks, snakes on planes, and way too many hospital stays.

Season's Greetings Officers, Brothers, Supports, Prospects and future Prospects and Supports!!!

Still chilling in southern California. Weather here is great. People? Meh Had to change our plans a bit. Can't get a trailer for the cage till the 28th so that's when we'll head east. Hmmm head east, good name for a rock n roll group.

Got a lot of work done on the RV. Still needs a lot. Well it is almost 23 years old. So it's expected. Oh speaking of that, Skinner we'll need an RV spot for National.

Just wanted to say MERRY CHIRSTMAS, Happy Chanukah, Blessed Yule and prayers for those on the mend. Here's to a healthy, happy and prosperous 2021.

Winter Solstice is behind us, so days are getting longer again and soon all of us will be riding again.
