Weekend Catch Up

Damn Flooding

And rain... enough is enough, this is just ridiculous.

Saturday we were to ride for a local police department to raise money for their auxiliary. Left the house in the rain. Rode for about 2 hours in the rain.

They canceled the ride while we were on our way... too much rain.

Sunday we were going to escort a bus or two of special needs kids (burn victims) to a special needs camp in south central Indiana, Brown County... too much rain. They didn’t want he kids to be in the damp and muddy environment so it has been postponed.

SO, we rode, around. Saturday we ended up at Russ’. The infamous Barn I’ve blogged about here a couple times.

Had a shot... well maybe two... and a beer.
DC got some ink work (see below)

Sunday we ended up riding around. (Is it just me or is there a pattern here...?) Ended up in some ‘300 population’ small town in west Indiana. Had a real neat covered bridge and some home make ice cream.

Rode just over 400 miles. Trying to get my ass in shape for the long haul and 1,000 mile day coming up in July. We may have modified our goal to be 1,500 miles in 36 hours instead of the 1,000 in 24 hours.

Wow..that's a lot of riding, dnr..but I know you loved every minute of it! :)

Too bad things were cancelled, but it sounds like you still had a pretty good time of it.

Be careful out there..especially in the rain!
