We rolled out of bed early and took advantage of the free breakfast at the hotel. We both had French toast and fruit. The weather looked perfect, another 95 degree day was predicted. Thank goodness for mesh gear and camelbaks.
Lot's of pretty lakes in the Dak's.
It got windy for a bit. Strong winds have a way of really beating you up on the bike.
We stopped for espresso at a cafe' along the way. Yes those are purple Adirondack chairs.
We continued on and eventually stopped at the Quincy Corner Cafe' for lunch. Lunch was good, but the service was very slow. We were the only customers in the place and it took 45 minutes to get our meal.
Later that day we arrived at the much anticipated route 144
Twisty bit heaven
It just goes on, and on, and on for like 60 miles
We stopped in a cute little town called Germania for fuel.
With full tanks we were ready to continue the twisties
We rode through a couple of state parks and eventually arrived in Dixonville in the dark. We had one small deer run out in front of us, but we had plenty of room to avoid hitting it. The GPS routed us up and over a small mountain on an unmaintained road just before my Aunt's house. It was steep with lots of washouts. It's the good thing it was dark and I couldn't see how bad it really was
