    Back to it.

    From Mars we headed to Evansville. The home of the Night of the Living Dead Museum.

    While at the museum we found out that Evansville was the subject and location of The Crazies. Almost gave away the plot.

    Little Free Library right around the corner from the museum.

    The road from Mars to Evansville was nice but 528 heading north Out of Evansville is fantastic. Nice and twisty and it felt Bout 30 degrees cooler than being in the direct sun. I followed 528 north and came upon

    George should have written this song. It seems he has been everywhere and slept there too.

    I stopped in Brookville for a late lunch and gas was 20 cents cheaper than the surrounding area. I managed to get 245 miles out of that tank of fuel.

    Today I think we are headed to Elk County to see the elk. We need to be back early for dinner, door prizes, and to see how the field games went.

    After breakfast we headed to Benezette, PA for the Elk. Found out that the Elk Expo is the same weekend and the place was packed.

    But did pick up this mural on the way there.

    Unfortunately there were no elk to be seen. The visitors center was nice.

    Dinner and awards start in 30 minutes or so and that is usually when the head count is announced.

    197 attendees.

    Doughnuts this morning and headed out at 830. I rode north on 28 and forgot about the mannequin in the phone booth, there is always next year. Jumped on 219 to 120.

    Peter Rabbit and the crew are at Mudslide Pottery in Ridgeway, Pa.

    I stopped to raise the water level and found these bumble bees dancing around in the flowers. They would bury their heads then rotate around.

    Just a short ride to Hyner's overlook. It was built by the CCC along with 7 other parks.

    While admiring the view I met a fellow rider. His KLR as 99,999.5 miles, I forgot to ask him what year the bike was.

    From Hyner's point I headed over to 44. Stopped in Jersey Shore due to starvation.

    The weather was getting hot. When I left in the morning it was in the low 60's (I even turned on the heated grips) by the time I stopped for lunch it was reaching 90. There wasn't a good spot to get a better picture of the mural but it is dedicated to the vets.

    I picked up 54 to Elysburg and took 487. Now I am getting into beeline mode and took 61 to 125 and 645. Once in Schaefferstown there was rain in the air. It looked like it was raining where I was going. I was sprinkled on but missed the downpour.

    I managed to take 9 hours to get home and rode over a 1000 miles during the weekend.


    I would like to thank the 4 Winds club for continuing the rally.

    It was a good rally. Hope to meet you again somewhere on an adventure.

    I too took the long way home. I collected a few more PA State Park pictures. Arrived home around 7:30 PM after riding through heat, rain, and very heavy and slow traffic from people departing the Pocono race track.
