Culver Ride

Only four of us today-Merle Combs, Larry Davis, John Nave, and Billy Niverson. Merle lead us up to Culver, in northern Indiana. First, we ate lunch at Ugalde's near Grissom AFRB. We had a scare near Kewanna when we went around a 90 degree turn at about 10 miles per hour. It felt like someone had dropped oil on the road over a tar strip. Merle kept his bike upright by putting his foot down, my bike's rear end slid over a little, as did John's bike. Billy had no problem with it. No one went down, so no harm done, unless Merle comes up limping. We stopped at the McDonald's on US 31, near Argos, for Coffee and Ice Cream. On the way back home we stopped at Tippecanoe High School, about five miles north of Akron, to look at the wind turbine there.

We rode about 165 miles--temperature in the 70s, light wind. Very nice ride. Thanks Merle for leading.
