TODAY'S THE DAY !!!

Goodbye, Ohio

The ponies are ready to depart. Everyone has their one little bag packed, their travel bag and of course the bike gear. As Sag Master, I have browned the beef and chicken and have the electric skillet ready as well as the grill. I picked up my riding buddy last night at the Ohio/Ind border. We plan to get on the road from here at 5pm and then pick up Dan before hitting the highway. We plan to travel through Ohio on Rt 77 and then take the West Va turnpike to VA. We hope to stay at the LaQuinta Hotel in Wytheville and then pick up the journey in the morning to hit Savannah. The Toyota Sienna is packed to the hilt, including the rocket box on top and the bike carrier on the back. (Picture will be up tomorrow. ).

Poor Wynn had a flat and a bad tire yesterday so had to miss the last training ride with Silver Wheels ( his local riding club). He made it out to Century Cycle and got his bike back in tip top shape. Thanks, guys! Glad that happened here and not on the first day of the adventure. So what lies ahead? I hope to write a little something each day. Keep us in your prayers for safety, good weather, finding lodging, and remaining good friends.-Ha!

Glad to have all of you sharing our journey. It is hard to imagine for me, being away from home and my kids, grand kids and dog for a whole month. This blog is my connection with things back home. Included today is a picture of me and my SAG partner, Karen. SAG stands for Support and Gear

Love to all of you as we keep riding....

I think there is a good train-watching platform in Perry, GA.

Will you post, or is there a map of your route. Someone told me it is the ACA southern tier.

Our thoughts are with all of you.

I've been riding for over 30 years and never knew what SAG stood for; support and gear. Thanks Brenda for being the one to educate me on that. We are never to old to learn something new or start a new adventure!
