September, 11, 2013... Lest We Forget..

It was a short ride today, and only three riders rode. The 94 degree heat may have been a factor. Merle Combs, Jerry Cole, and Larry Davis rode down to Elwood for lunch. We rode through the windmills north of Elwood on IN 13. Looks like this:

We ate at the Airport Cafe on IN 37 north of Elwood. I used to eat there when they had a runway, and we would fly our airplanes in there, and eat. The runway has been closed for five years, and it's now a soybean field. I knew one of the waitresses, there, from my flying days, and she caught me up-to-date on what's been going on. The food was good and the service better.

After lunch we rode down to Strawtown, and then turned left and rode along the White River over to Anderson. We then turned north on IN9, and rode to McDonald's at Alexandria for ice cream and coffee. The flag at McDonald's was at half-staff for Sept. 11. We saw several flags at half-staff along the ride:

I rode 98 miles and it was hot!
