    Drove to Taylorsville again today. We now have permission to park our cars, trucks, vans, trailers etc just west of the Waffle House starting point. The lot is owned by Hoosier Air Transport. We can park on the rock/grass area north of the truck lot entrance. Head to the north end of the lot but on the outside of the fence. Only a short walk to Waffle House. My white Ford Transit will be there late Friday afternoon.

    Is there any other lodging near Derby for Saturday night?

    Some friends from the Detroit area would like to join in but are looking to pack lite for this one.

    Thanks!

    Props on the stretch northeast of Brownstown along the river.
    Very nice.
    Good place to see several thousand sandhill cranes, but your timing has to be right.

    Was riding south of Medora in Febuary years ago and saw a bunch of them in a field south of town ... biggest group I've ever seen.

    Hope to see some on this ride!

    Not going to make it for the full ride, but I'll probably ride some of the Saturday loop and hang out at @avtechinbtown's place on Saturday. Seems like a good opportunity to see what the 950 can do out there.

    I live 1.76 mile's north of the tracks that go past the old Bartlettsville store. But 1TRAK and the other guy's from Michigan are meeting me at my place and were riding to Taylorsville to kick off the ride.

    Mike (BlueFargo) and I are in for both days. Just got back from doing the KAT last night. Will bore you with stories of that, if you want to listen. I can't recommend the KAT strongly enough to you all
