It didn’t take long for the rains to start! Let me assure you that there is no drought in OH, IN, or in MI. Today I dealt with 4 storm cells that pounded me with rain, high gusting winds and lightning. I managed to alter my route enough to get by two of them but but the other two got me head on.
The Nickel was a great ride. I did about 40 miles of it and handled the blind hilltop, 90 degree turns and off camber corners. It would have been more fun if it was dry but still a great ride. I took a detour part way up to see Old Muskie!
The biggest drag line bucket in the world! The size is amazing and the fact that it sits on top of a hill on a narrow little road makes you wonder how it got there.
The rains were wearing on me so with another 325 miles to go and having used up 3 hours going 60 miles it was time to move on.
Off to Columbus then around and across OH to IN and a wonderful visit with good friends in Granger, IN. It was another 400 mile day and I arrived at their house at 5:30. To welcome me Michael was wearing a Carolina Blue shirt, quite a sacrifice for a Notre Dame alum.
We had a fun dinner then I got a tour of the Notre Dame Campus. What a beautiful campus.
Wow, my ipad freaked out on the last post and refused to edit.
