Garfield Revisited

Under the threat of rain, I rode in to Gabriel's today. Turns out, only Jack McClain and I rode. Five ate lunch, Jack, John Nave, Jerry Cole, Charlie Thomas, and myself.

After lunch, I followed Jack back to his house, just to have some place to ride. After leaving Jack, I rode toward Anderson, east past Anderson Highland High School (first time I'd ever seen the campus), on over to Yorktown, and east almost to Muncie, where I turned back north.

This was an "adventure", meaning I didn't know where I was going! :) I ended up back in Gaston and then Matthews. I thought, since I'm here, I'll ride to the Matthews Community Center, as I read in the Chronicle Tribune that they had put "Fisherman Garfield" there. I was so happy to see the statue standing there, just to the left of the entrance of the building! I got off my bike and took a picture:

This completes the Garfield pictures I took here at this link:

I rode over to "Old Town cemetery" and through the covered bride. On to Upland, and home. Once I got home, I changed the oil and oil filter on the bike, as I'd just rolled over 600 miles on the ride today. It started out with rain, but ended being a nice day to ride. I rode 100 miles today. Temperatures in the high 60s hitting 70 once.
