We tracked back out Spas Creek and stopped before heading west on 613 W, our first road officially pointed home. Our plan was to head west, get close to I-75, and then turn north hopefully through Horse country. For those that are interested, we ended up meandering from 613 to 974, to 89 into Winchester, KY for lunch. This place was packed with locals inside, so you know it had to be good. DryFire ordered the third bacon cheeseburger of the weekend and I had the meatloaf special. Good stuff. We left Winchester via 60W to 1678N to Paris, KY. Through town, we turned north on Hwy 1940. This was definitely Horse country as we passed mile after mile of black fences partitioning green pastures. One very cool sight was a stable of horses galloping together through the field. I'd never seen that before and it reminded me of many western RR's on here when people ride past wild mustangs. Somewhere along the way, and I don't remember where, we pulled off to catch some shade here. It was amazing how hot and humid it got right after leaving the Gorge area. That last picture filled my memory card and I didn't want to risk the wrath of my pregnant wife for arbitrarily deleting stuff already on there. We continued north 36 to 22 to 25 running parallel to I75 until approaching Florence, KY where you just have to bite the bullet and hit the slab. Crossing the Ohio river and heading west through Cincinnati to DryFire's house, the beautiful weather finally ran out and the last 20 minutes gave us a pretty good downpour. We pulled into Tim's garage just as the heavens really opened up with a major storm system of serious gusts and heavy rain. I was able to harbor myself there for about two hours until the worst of it passed. Somehow I lucked myself into a delicious home cooked meal (hi Angie! ). When the cats and dogs turned to a light rain, I geared up anxious to get home to my wife. I pulled into home around 9:30PM with a a sore face from slabbing through rain up 75 in an open dirt-style helmet, and a relatively clean ride from nature's bike wash. All in all, everything went well, the bikes performed flawlessly, the camping gear worked out just fine, Tim is still talking to me... So I guess we're on for MI's Upper Peninsula Adventure Tour at the end of July! Both DryFire and I already bought the $16 sticker, so there's no turning back now. Thanks for following along.
