Hi Elmer, I'm glad you decided to strike out on the trail. I also see that you made the turn across the bridge! I'll be following along with you as you head west young man!!! Ride safe.

Cheer...
the photo shoot is fine
i'm sorry about your "FUNK"
it could have been predicted... riding without sharon
i know you will have a great time
i know you have ridden alone before
the start is great
wish i could have hacked the TAT with you
if only

as for that ailment....
not sure
maybe something MUSCULOSKELETAL....
but, that will only be aggravated by BOUNCING AROUND on the HACK... on the TAT
be careful, my friend
thanks for taking us along on the journey

This sign was actually posted by a in the middle of nowhere homeowner.

Oh, yeah...there's more... at most intersecting corners there is an array of "named" Churches pointing left and right...totally Fubar!

Makes it easy 'going' to Church, you never get lost finding a/your Church.

In another area, but failed to take a snap shot..ggrrr....There's a massive Cross within 50 yards of an also massive "Gentlemen's" Club.
