Nice Ride to Cammack Station

Eight of us left town on a ride to Cammack Station for lunch.  That's in Cammack, Indiana...  I know, I had never heard of it either.  Cammack is located 2.5 miles north of Yorktown and 2.6 miles north west of Muncie.  There's a restaurant there that looks like a old time gas station with gas pumps out front.  They have a 1940-1950 theme to the place with old gas pumps and globes inside.  Good food and 1950's music playing while you eat.

After leaving the restaurant we stopped at the nearest gas station so Billy Niverson could buy gas.  We left the gas station and rode on in close to Muncie.  Our intrepid leader, Merle, lead us around Muncie and we headed east. At this time Art rode up to the front to tell us Billy was no longer riding with us.  After much palavering, we decided to ride on and see if Billy joined us--he didn't.

Just a gentle reminder:  We should join the ride with a full gas tank and an empty bladder, not the other way round!

We proceed to ride over every road in Delaware County with potholes until we got to IN 36.  We rode IN 36 to US 27 and then on to Mrs. Wicks Pie Store in Winchester, Indiana.  Of course, being old men, we forgot that Mrs. Wicks Pie Store closes at 2:00PM on Saturdays and it was 2:30PM.  We'd been there before under similar circumstances but had forgotten (that's the old men part).  We decided to go back to US 27 where there was a McDonald's to get a cup of coffee and pie.

We rode on to Portland where Dave bought gas.  We came home from Portland on IN 26.

I rode 154 miles.

Riding today was Bill Maynard (a new rider), Billy Niverson (at least part way), the three Larry's (Larry Burke, Larry Miller, and myself, Larry Davis), Art Adrianson, David Payne, and our leader, Merle Combs.
