Ride to Adams Mill

We left Marion at about 11:30 for a ride-to-lunch at Burlington, Indiana.  Eleven of us today for a nice, warm, ride.  We rode IN 18 west to Converse, Bennett Switch, Young America, and turned south on IN 29 to Burlington. 

We dismounted and had lunch at the Dinner Bell:

After lunch we rode west to Adams Mill:

After studying the water going over and through the dam, we rode through the covered bridge that is north of the mill.

We rode west over to Cutler, Indiana and then south on IN 75 to Frankfort, IN.  Upon leaving Frankfort we once again had "separation problems" and somehow lost three of our riders.  We stopped as soon as we noticed but alas, it was too late.  Nine of us continued on until we lost Jack McClain, who had to go home for a previous engagement.  Eight of us continued to Tipton were we stopped at McDonald's for ice cream.  We rode east from Tipton to Elwood and then home.

Riding today were Merle Combs, Larry Davis, Larry Burke, John Nave, Larry Miller, Jack McClain, Jerry Cole, Art Adrianson, Bill Maynard, Charles Thomas, and Billy Niverson.  The last three were "lost" in Frankfort.

I rode 167 miles and it was warm (90 degrees) and little wind.
