Aaron is ready to roll

This morning at about 9 AM, from the Whole Foods grocery store parking lot on 15th Ave W in Seattle, Aaron Bellingham’s much anticipated motorcycle trip through the American West was officially launched. As announced yesterday, hitting the road with Aaron are his father, Steve Bellingham, and his Godfather, Rick Nelson. Gathering at Whole Foods to see them off were the O’Firinn family—Ken, Valorie, Brendan and Amberly, as well as Mariah and Tammy Arnold.

The first leg of the journey takes our intrepid trio east across Washington State to Spokane, where they will spend the night before heading off to Glacier National Park in Montana. As stated yesterday, Aaron will be reporting regularly on the trip’s adventures and we will keep you up to date on this blog. Posted here are some photos taken at their departure earlier today by Tammy. The American Flag was a Fourth of July gift from Tammy.

Ready to Ride!

The purpose of “From a Native Son” is twofold; the first being to inform and enlighten and the second to entertain. I write about any subject that interests me but you will find these subjects primarily break down into the broad categories of social/political commentary and sports.
