    I edited it and realized we just rode 100 miles for the wrong tag.

    Oops!

    On a bright note you weren't too far from the real tag. If I'm not mistaken its in Lagrange.

    Just a little about our day.....

    We got out late, decided to grab a bite at the Wolf River Café and got there around 10:30.

    Too late for breakfast and too early for lunch evidently as our food didn't come until 11:30.... :huh
    We entertained ourselves watching two ladies on a Shadow and a Savage spend 15 minutes to put on a half shell helmet. Seriously, that was all their gear. :D We winced as they wobbled down the road, then came back a few minutes later going the other way. I think at least one of them was a new rider, which worried me since I didn't think her deck shoes would be very grippy if needed.

    After we ate, Bill went to pay the check and the cashier had gone to the bank. We watched her leave about 15 - 20 minutes before and they said it might still be a while..... :hmmmmm

    So...... we waited patiently. :gerg

    Couldn't get the thread to load on my phone and thought I knew where it was, so we proceed to tag the wrong spot! :freaky

    Then, on the way to the next tag we were held up by a COALLLLLLLL TRAINNNNNNN!!!!

    Next we got to wait at the one lane light at the river bridge.... :gerg

    Stopped at the gas station in Somerville and watched a Harley rider braid his hair into a pony-tail while I waited for Bill. Then his wife came out.

    I told Bill that you would think she could have done that for him while they were riding, but I guess a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!

    We proceeded to our next tag (that's a secret) and then home.

    What an ADV kind of day. :clap

    Wish I had that kind of patience Gloria. I waited 90 minutes for two eggs over easy one morning after the rush. I didn't care for the food, the service, or the attitude of the staff. I've not been back. YMMV.

    Josh is correct ZZ Girl: It's in La Grange. If you're east bound on the east side of town you'll find it on the north side of the highway 600 yds. before the stop sign at the T. I love reading history and wonder what life in the US would be like had the war between the states not occurred.

    Huh, that's probably what I need to do. I couldn't get the pics on my phone yesterday and thought it was because I had a weak signal there at the restaurant.

    Service was never fast at the WRC, but the attitude of the staff was always very friendly. The last couple of times we've stopped in it has been a different experience. I think maybe ownership or management has changed.

    I must have been there on an off day for them Gloria. It's been 5 or 6 years ago I guess...I don't usually besmirch the wait staff or the cooks regardless of service, just chiming in.

    My type A tendencies aren't as focused as they were but I'm still more of an eat and run individual. Slowing down in my old age...but still like to go. :D

    So...Where are we in the PT hunt? I went to Savannah today for a part that didn't fit my bike. The upside is I had a great burger at the Toll House, met a fellow ADV guy, and the ride was awesome! I would have even had time for a photo tag mission.

    Things are slowing down in the remodeling until more planning is done. I'll actually be able to make the dinner rides I think.

    Heya Johncc!!

    That's hilarious, I was the guy in the green Nissan Cube who pulled up and asked you if you were alright. Guess you were, because you were grabbing a phototag!!!

    heh.
