    Thanks for the kudos everyone! I wondered what happened to those photos----thanks for posting Silke!

    Kinda surprised me that I had trouble getting on the bike. I felt a bit skiddish riding, especially around the left curbs...:D But, I felt invigorated! I just have to keep telling myself not to take my feet off the pegs no matter what. I can't help at think that if I had just kept my foot on the peg, the ankle wouldn't have broken. Oh well, life goes on!

    Hugs!

    Sneaked out for a short ride again today. Nothing too special. Very bright sunshine and temps in the upper 40's.

    Thanks, Dan. That barn struck me the first day we arrived here and I've admired it ever since.

    Was at the doc yesterday, Shes still not completely clear but shes off the meds. She did get clearance to do the PT on her shoulder that should have been started many weeks ago.

    We're banging away at it.:norton

    Best bet is to meet somewhere on Route 11, it leaves I85 near Gaffney, runs along the northern border of SC, then runs back down toward 85 somewhere near clemson. Very civilized. There some decent little food stops along there, and several really good roads up into NC/TN. I think it runs right near Table Rock IIRC, it's been a while...

    Route along Rt 11

    36 miles.

    Stop at the Fire station in Honea Path and ask where the accident
    that ended Rick Kiehna's life took place.
    First responders came from Honea Path.
