Who is the best uncle ever
OK people, I had fun in PA and Eagles Mere is maybe one of the nicest places I have been (al except the toilet laws, you can put a potty anywhere). But my true issue with PA, and yes the booze laws are really screwed up we all know that. But who ever made up the speed limit in PA must have paralysis of the right side of there body. WTF 55 mph, you can dodge the bugs hitting your helmet at that speed (great for the bugs). Back to the start, so camped on Lake Erie, got up and took the Hwy 6, what a great rode and beautiful roads and towns. Tree everywhere and nice people. DEER, that is another story, just keep your eyes open people And what is up with that, a state holiday for the first day of deer hunting ???&(*^*&%#@@#%^$&*^*%%$#$#$@%$#^ Want to keep in short and sweet, after a long days riding, was meet my captain corn chip friend Barry and we went to his folks home in Eaglesmere (which means you can see eagle there) I did not. Meet his brother and great family. I was really treated like royality. HOW DID THEY KNOW I WAS ?. Except I had to give up my bed the first night to Tim. Could not have asked for a nicer more fun breack and people. Yes even the people at the Barn were nice. Thanks to all and hope to come back (if you will have me) Cheers PB Thanks Pennsylvania for putting this sign up for me !!! I did ask to keep it low key for me.
After being well rested and being taken care of by G & G in Chicago. PS the view from the John Hancock penthouse is worth it and thanks for the drinks G. Back on the road or as Willy says, on the road again... Complete with a hug from G and a great coffee from G on the 92 out of Chicago, through IL into Indiana ( sorry ...boring) into Ohio. Yes home of my team Cleveland Indians.. Got to Toledo on the 80/90 the roads were boring and a RIP OFF as you need to fuel at the gas station on the toll roads... WTF. After going through Toledo (and let me know why this town is famous, outside of MASH and you get a prize) I got off the maim road and went on the 6 to Sandusty up lake Erie to Cleveland. And there was a game on, did a lap of the the park and then on to the 80 up to Erie. Really wanted to camp but had a had time finding anywhere when I bumped into Sara's right on Lake Erie, got the tent out, sent it up, went to get dinner etc and came back...RAIN. WTF. thankfully it stopped and I had a good nights sleep on the beach of Lake Erie. I wanted to wake up in the morning looking out over the lake but when I woke up during the night, someone had set the tent up in front of mine.??? Cheers PB
Lunch with friends,thanks for taking care of me G & G
