It felt good to be riding for the first time since my surgery. Although, my knee did complain a little when it was over. I iced it down and drank a rum & coke. I decided not to ask my doctor's permission to ride for fear of the answer. I still think it was the best approach.

David, it would have been icing on the cake to have Bruced you! Did you, at least, take a bunch of file photos while riding South?

Moving east to a US Hwy (business) which has 2 numbers and when added together = 2. This manufacturing facility would make an item you would use to make a clean sweep of things.

This dam was built in record time but would have flooded a town with the name of a presidents wife but residents (and others) appealed to Elenor Roosevelt to save the community.

I've always wondered if there's any truth to the old stories about that bridge.
