After lunch seven of us rode to Wabash (Billy had an appointment), where Larry Burk and Art Adrianson left for home. Five of us rode to Syracuse where we stopped at McDonald's for ice cream and coffee. On the way back south we stopped to see The Dixie in North Webster. I'd not seen The Dixie since I was a kid. It was a great thrill, back then, to ride around Lake Webster on a paddle wheel boat, The Dixie. Probably still is a thrill! :) A little movie:

I rode 123 mile--temps in the low 80s, no wind. Very nice ride with good friends.
