I was pulling into a gas station one time on the ST13 and clipped one of those yellow posts with my crash bars that I have protecting my panniers and it slid my rear end over a couple in inches so I could see this easily happening to anyone...

Thanks everyone.

Ikea, Jungle Jims & Clifton Mill on Fri.

Roscoe Village all day Sat, did Uncorked for lunch, but the steakhouse there was too crowded after the candle thing. Looked on Urban Spoon & went to a place in Coshocton called English Ivy. Pretty good, in a cool old house.

Recharged the man batteries on Sun, Too shitty to hang out at the house so we went up to Shelby to Sportsmans Den & Glenn's Surplus. Glenns had a huge pile of burlap coffee sacks. They had markings from all over the place and were pretty cool. She went ape shit for them, plus they were only 98 cents each. We looked through a huge pile....they even brought up some from the back. Left with a bunch.


Thanks for the other ideas.

She is a small town girl when you can go to Glenn's for a date.

Well, she looked way out of place, but she is adventurous & pretty open minded (even without Captain Morgan) so it was all good.

If you are looking for a dinner place near Clifton Mill, Yellow Springs is about 3 miles west of there. You could try Peach's Grill (biker vibe), Ha Ha Pizza, or Young's Jersey Dairy (counter service meals in south building, sit-down style in north building). Clifton has zero other choices and will be packed on a Friday and I doubt the mill will be serving anything other than hot cocoa and cookies. At the other end of the spectrum, Ikea has all-beef hot dogs for 50 cents. -Mike

Thanks, I'll keep those for future reference. We did this last week.

Might take my mom to the mill, I think that would be something she would enjoy. Thanks for the food choices around there.
