From The Boot Hill Saloon To 48 States To Celebrate the 40th Anniversary Of The Famous Biker Bar And Support Veterans

donwoodbisboot-hill-saloonThe Boot Hill Saloon, founded in 1973 across from The Pinewood Cemetery on Main Street Daytona, has been for 40 years a huge part of the motorcycle culture and people from all corners of the globe have made the trek to be a part of its history. For over 70 years men and women alike have ridden their motorcycles to gather in Daytona Beach and for over 40 years they have stopped into the Boot Hill Saloon for the camaraderie and a cold drink.

On February 21st, Don Wood who played a Moonshiner in Season 1 & 2 of the TV series the Moonshiners, a docudrama (fiction) on the Discovery Channel that dramatizes the life of people who illegally produce moonshine in the Apalachian Mountains, will celebrate this milestone leaving the Boot Hill Saloon in Daytona on a 10,000 mile journey to visit all 48 states on a charity ride for The Veterans Support Fund, a Non-profit Organization.

Karin Gehris, Owner of The Boot Hill Saloon said, “This is our way of celebrating “The Riders” who are the history and the heartbeat of our Saloon”. The owner went on to say, “it’s only natural for us to team up with The Veterans Support Fund charity because so many of the riders served this great Country before we served them”. All funds raised go directly to The Veterans Support Fund. Don Wood’s ride is being funded by private and public business sponsors. So, if you are around Daytona, join Don Wood on February 21st at the Boothill Saloon. Any contribution that you make will be greatly appreciated.

    If Don played a moonshiner on season 1 & 2 of the TV series Moonshiners why isn’t he listed on IMDB has a member of the cast and crew?

    Don is full of crap. He is not a moonshiner, never has been, never will be. He doesn’t even know how to make moonshine.

    Cyril is right. Don Wood is listed as cast member on season 1 & 2.

    Don, please be especially careful riding through Arizona. They can’t afford to pay you another lawsuit for hitting a pothole.
